I haven t been lucky for this loop in eastern Europe. According to the locals, the weather has been good until the previous week, now it s really cold and rainy too.
My first day in Romania was ok, only a bit of rain when entering the Maramures, the northern part of the Carpathians mountains. The conditions were still ok to appreciate the local architecture.

Next day going to Ukraine, i had to drive under the snow about one hour, before I exit the mountains. then the weather god a bit better up to Kamyanets Podilsky.
