    Boat Trip to Devin Castle

    July 24 in Austria

    Temperatures are almost similar to those that you are experiencing in the UK, and the glorious weather has made for a perfect boat trip along the Danube towards Devin Castle! Fortunately there are several areas on the boat where it's possible to catch a really cooling breeze so we're definitely not melting; we should soon be stopping and have a chance to have a wander around before the return journey.Read more

    All that glitters...

  • Day355

    Today was going to be bakery morning day. With rumbling stomachs we packed up our gear in slick time and made our way through the empty village streets to the bakery and spa shop in our GPS.(we noticed we can cycle much better on a heavy breakfast than we can on more regular light meals/ snacks in the morning).

    Not a soul in sight. As we had passed a nuclear power plant en route to last night's campsite, I did wonder if something had happened overnight ....😅

    The shops opening times were clearly displayed and we walked up and down the door sensors a few times to check we weren't imagining things in our hungry state. The penny dropped when Peter's dad sent a message wishing us a happy bank holiday from the day before! Ooopss.

    Like a pacman in search of food we made our way along the cycle path noting each of the "snack bar 200m" signs that there was an abundance of. Strangely for a bank holiday, all were closed....

    We eventually found an open one in a guesthouse where we were able to buy a breakfast platter, despite arriving one hour before opening time.

    Feeling energised, we made our way to Vienna. Being a pinnacle city on the Danube cycle route we both found it hugely disappointing. Lacking charm and character, the centre surrounding the Danube was a concrete jungle, full of grafitti tags. We were glad to use the opportunity to buy a Woodfired pizza and get out into the countryside again.

    Tonight is a wildcamp-esque site. A designated camp ground but no facilities, but its free and we're the only people camping here. There's someone else with a dog across the other side of the field, he's half in camo-gear so I can't see him. Just a red top! ;) Not sure if he's staying though.

    Our campsite is funded by the EU. Sucks to be English right now!

    Hainburg on Donau

    March 20, 2017 in Austria

    Took a day trip to Hainburg on the city bus with aunt and neighbour. Wanted to tour the little town a bit on a day that was sunny and warm. There is a national park and castle on the ridge of the town that you could walk to a a beautiful viewpoint of the Danube, town and Slovakia from a different direction. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to do either of the things because my two guests were not in the mood for walking. I'll have to do this on a day by myself. It's only 9km from Bratislava and there is a great flat bike path. Too bad I don't have a bike. Hainburg is lovely and tidy, has an old archway at the entrance and beautifully restored buildings. It is also the birthplace of Joseph Hayden, famous composer. Same composer I listened to at the symphony I attended in December. I found his birthplace when I took a side street on my own.Read more

    Vienna to Petronell-Carnuntum 51,6km

    June 25, 2016 in Austria

    Got new bikes today for the 2nd half of the cycling. Apparently bikes need to be serviced after 6 days. We covered exactly 300km in 6 days. Who knew 😊

    Extremely hot today with a strong wind blowing all the way from Vienna. Not much shade along the way either.

    Petronell-Carnuntum was a Roman army camp on the Danube river, now a village close to the Slovakian border. The last picture is of the Heidentor or Pagan Gate built between 354 and 361 AD.

    We head to Bratislava tomorrow.

    Was man aus einem Regentag macht...

    November 2, 2016 in Austria

    Heute trafen wir eine Wiener Freundin (Melissa), die ich aus dem Erasmus in Oviedo kenne. Wir trafen uns um zum Devin Schloss zu fahren. Da es leider regnete mussten wir erstmal was trinken in den extrem großen Ledersesseln der Hotelbar. Auf der Ruine gab's verwöhnte Schafe, Nebel, seltsame Skulpturen, tiefe Brunnen und noch 2-3 anderen Menschen. Abschließend fuhren wir zurück in die Stadt und hatten ein spätes Mittagessen mit köstlichen Halusky und Cider. Als wir Melissa zu Bahnhof brachten kauften wir die Tickets für morgen (Nach Budapest) und schauten uns ein Abendpanorama von der Slavin Statue an. Und wieder schien es so, dass man uns die Altstadt durch Bäume verdecken wollte. Die Burg war aber leuchtend sichtbar.Read more
