Driving back from Bulgaria we queued two hours at the Bulgarian Romanian border at Vidin. I was dreading the Romanian Hungarian border the next day. As we approached it, Google suggested we could save 15 minutes by driving through a side parking area and re-joining further along. So we did this and skipped several hundred meters of queueing. Just as we re-joined the main queue the border police opened up a couple of gates on the right. Without even stopping, we rolled through the side bit and pulled into the passport checkpoint with two cars in front of us. What should have been at least a hour border crossing, took us a few minutes.
I guess sometimes you get lucky! 🍀
