Day 75 – Goodbye Hungary, Hello Croatia

June 14, 2010 – 11:00 pm 9 Comments

Yesterday we went through the town of Kalocsa, which is known as Hungary’s paprika capital.  There were peppers hanging up here and there in people’s gardens!  There was also a nature reserve in this area, the Danube-Drava national park and the whole area is renowned for its full-bodied wines, from Baja, Hajos and Vaskut.

Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and celebrate the journey.” – Fitzhugh Mullan

A rather fitting quote for Hungary, with the number of pot-holed roads, that we do worry about, particularly downhill!! (more…)

We left Rackeve early today as we wanted to get a few miles done before it got too hot!   We stopped for a breather in a village and a very nice man (on a moped), came to chat to us!

Day 71 – Mosquito Time

June 10, 2010 – 11:08 pm No Comments

We didn’t do that much today, we’ve had a lazy day of it.  We spent a long time sorting out lots of photos we’d taken in the city yesterday and then we spent 4 hours at McDonald’s (making 2 milkshakes last that long!!), uploading the blogs, the photos and all the videos.  The videos aren’t necessarily that exciting, but we hope they will be a good reminder for us when we’re home and reviewing our travels.

Day 69 – 12Km and 3 Hours on The Beastie!

June 8, 2010 – 11:00 pm 2 Comments

Not quite sure how we’ve survived today, but we have!  Because of the Danube flooding we’ve not been able to continue along the cycle path that hugs the river, in fact, it has disappeared and won’t be back for quite a few weeks I shouldn’t think.  Unfortunately therefore we’ll miss what they call the “Danube’s Knee” (where the river bends), which has some lovely scenery.   (more…)

Today’s been a tough day!   We’ve done 3 hills today, and they got progressively bigger each time.   We’ve cycled up and through the villages of Labatlan and Bajat and downhill past a Monastery and through the village of Tokod.   (more…)

Day 67 – A Hangover, A Headwind and Heat!

June 6, 2010 – 11:00 pm 8 Comments

Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by.” – Robert Frost

A hangover, a headwind and the heat, not a good combination is it?!  Today we woke up in a very hot tent, with headaches, (Rog’s was worse than mine, as I had stopped some time before him the night before!).  It took us a while to get decamped  as I think we were both delaying the inevitable, and then, when we did set off, we had a strong headwind, ferocious heat (as it was nearing midday!) and headaches – great!  We had about 18Kms of this, to take us to Tata, and again, I found myself thinking “why am I here and why am I doing this?”!
