Hungary, the short version

sunny

I just spent ages typing up a nice blog and adding pictures. Then the internet went down and it was all lost, so here's a short version of our Hungarian adventure:

We left Romania and found a random campsite. We got lucky as the campsite was part of a swimming pool/natural spa/welness centre complex and we got free entry to the pools (see site for more info). We took and evening dip and spent the evening chatting and laughing about 2,5 months of touring.

The next day we spent chilling at the park: swimming before breakfast, lunch and dinner, soaking up the goodness of the natural healing spa, braaing for lunch and dinner, ect. It was super relaxing, especially as everything was of high standards, something we haven't always found in the Balkans.

Friday, after a morning swim, we made and early exit for the capital, Budapest. As we arrived at midday it was cooking. Luckily the hotel was well cooled and a shower made us feel refreshed. However, as we set off for an afternoon and evening of sightseeing, we concluded it was way too hot to do everything and kept the walking to a minimum and kept cool on the terraces. In the evening we had a traditional goulash which was lovely but is probably better suited to a cold winter's day rather than a scorching summer's day.

This morning we had a champagne breakfast (Greg declined the champers before setting off for Slovakia. As we kitted up and loaded the bike we were told it was going to be even hotter today than yesterday. As we were riding out of Budapest at 11 this morning, the LED thermometers were already showing 40'!

Happy as Larry with the campsite
