Hitchhiking out

North towards Ukraine

Take bus 5 to the last stop, then walk a bit back and left. Follow the road to Siret, which is the last Romanian town before the border. The road enters Ukraine at the Siret-Porubnoe border crossing.

West towards Bistriţa, Dej E 58 E 576

Take a maxi-taxi in the direction Opcini. The last stop is next to a store called Mobila. Walk further down the street to the intersection, which is signposted for Cluj-Napoca. When you turn onto this road, there is about a hundred meters where a car can stop. You can thumb here and get a lift out of the city.

Sleep

All the county of Suceava is amazing and perfect to wildcamp. You can easily hitch a lift to Pradauti (unesco heritage) intersection, walk to the monastery and set up your tent somewhere or being hosted by the guardians, as Fede did. 6 km from it, through an amazing forest road you will reach the more famous Dragomirna monastery, where also is very easy to find a spot for your tent. (entrance with fee 5lei better stay out..)
