Help From Hungarians

2177 km so far. When we awoke today it was raining. We had expected this to be the case and partly for this reason only planned to bike 30 km today. When we met Eric in Baja he recommended we give AirBnB a try, so I did just this when we were in Kalocsa. I […]

EuroVelo 6 Blog: The Good, The Bad, and the Eurovelo 6 in Hungary

If you’re wondering what what you’ll see along the EuroVelo 6 in Hungary, our EuroVelo 6 blog posts are here to help. We cycled almost the entire EuroVelo 6 route in Hungary, from Mohacs in the south, all the way to Slovakia in the north. We kept a daily account of our experiences on our […]

Surprise, We’re In Baja!

2101 km so far. And here you thought I meant California. Hungary has its own Baja, which sadly isn’t quite as sun-baked and sandy as California’s. Myth Busters When we were in Pécs, we asked Mirko about the EuroVelo 6 and he replied, “I think that’s more of a myth.” We’d also read blogs written […]

Strange Animals

2071 km so far. Hours after Stephen finished writing yesterday’s post, we are still awake, listening to half a dozen 20-something boys sing along to classic rock that was recorded 40 years ago. I don’t know what is more infuriating: their complete lack of respect for other human beings or their complete lack of originality […]

It’s All Jöga

2024 km so far. We decided we needed a day off. Or rather Jane needed a day off and I am always happy to oblige. When one of us needs a break, a break we should take. Pécs seemed like a nice town last night when we wandered around, and our hostel was geared to […]

2000 Kilometre Day!

2024 km so far. We both woke up tired after our 100 km plus ferry plus flat tire ride yesterday. But, with only 47 km to go to Pecs, we figured it would be an easy day. The room rate included breakfast, which is almost never a good thing. We’d much rather eat our homemade […]

Ahead By A (Metric) Century

1978 km so far. There I was thinking I would have nothing to write about today. We rode the short distance from Balatonfüred to the Thiany ferry, which would take us from the peninsula’s point across Balaton to Szántód. Taking the ferry meant we didn’t have to continue riding around the lake today, so we […]

And Then I Ate Some Meat

1877 km so far. I awoke to sunshine, birds singing, and Stephen zipping and unzipping various zippers. Why do tents have to be so zippery? We set about our usual early morning routine of Stephen making coffee and me wandering around in a daze. As we were pouring our brew, a German lady came over […]

The Road To Wellville

1835 km so far. After taking in the outside of Keszthely’s only building of note that isn’t the giant Tesco, also known as Festetics Palace, which is a Baroque palace built beginning in the late 18th century, we headed to Héviz. A paved bike path took us the 4 km to town through swampland, and […]

There’s No Place Like Home

1795 km so far. I didn’t like today. There, I said it. I did not want to be on the bike. I did not want to be pedalling my ass off against nasty headwinds. I did not want to be in Hungary. I wanted to be at home, in my bed, snuggled up with a […]
