Hungary vs Poland: International Smackdown

I don’t know about Europeans, but I would hazard a guess that most North Americans think of Poland and Hungary (if they think of them at all) as nothing more distinct than a couple of biggish countries somewhere east of Germany. Stephen and I had very little idea of what to expect from either, which […]

So Long Hungary, Hello Slovakia

2424 km so far. We got up bright and early today hoping to catch the 8:35 ferry across the Danube. When we pulled up to the ‘dock’ (which is actually just the road running into the river) and bought tickets, we noticed the ferry was already pulling out, although it wasn’t quite 8:30 yet. The […]

It Never Rains, It Pours

2364 km so far. When we woke up this morning, the rain had stopped, but there was no sign the sun was ever going to come out. We packed up quickly, but by the time we’d got the soaking tent stored away, the rain had started again. We ate our breakfast of muesli and soy […]

Finally, in 1990, […]

Budapest Now And Then

2307 km so far. This morning we got up and went straight to the bike shop. Since failing with three shops on Saturday, Stephen had done some more research and found a shop online that sounded like the real deal: a place where they care about bikes and bicycling and really know their stuff. With […]

A Day Of Miracles

2283 km so far. We took full advantage of Barbi and David’s flat today. Jane slept in while I caught up with friends on Facebook and read the news. We then had an easy morning as we stayed in, catching up on emails, blog posts, photo editing, and coffee drinking. It was so great to […]

Little Cyclists In The Big City

2283 km so far. Today we celebrated 2 months on the road!! We are in Budapest, staying with our new friends David and Barbi in their lovely flat. It is so nice to feel “at home” somewhere for a few days. It’s also incredibly nice of two complete strangers to take us in for 5 […]
