    Hungarian single trails

    July 5, 2020 in Hungary ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    We were a bit tired from last night, but didn't have time to think about it. After a short downhill from the guesthouse and a little detour to a nearby lake, komoot sent us into the forest again. And this time, I think it mistook our means of transport. The trail was more a hiking trail but everything else, so we had to push our bikes a lot. At some section, we even had to push one bike with the two of us. We were covered in sweat and flies and insects trying to fly into our eyes and ears weren't helping either. It was exhausting, but a good adventure.
    Next, we went to a beautiful lake, Agós, the hotel owner from last night, had recommended. As it was lunchtime and we were hungry, we had some food there as well.
    Afterwards, we could get some distance covered. We passed very remote villages and were surprised by the poor standards of some of the houses. The nature though was nice with hills and forest. We also passed a field full of storks before starting a final climb of 500m elevation gain along a canyon road to our campground.

    A tailwind day

    July 7, 2020 in Hungary ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    After over 35°C yesterday, it rained all night and temperature dropped by about 15°C. So once it had stopped raining, it was actually nice weather for cycling.
    Last night, we had planned a nice route off the main roads. However, when we turned onto the gravel roads, we found out that the gravel was disgustingly sticky mud after a night of heavy rain. After only about 500m, my tyres blocked completely and I had to push/pull my bike further. Shortly after, we had to cross a river which allowed us to wash the bikes so we could continue riding.
    Unfortunately, this forced us to take paved roads for the rest of the day which are relatively busy in this part of Hungary. However, we could still enjoy riding on a bike path along Lake Tisza where we saw lots of other bikers as well as fishermen. We also passed heaps of sunflower fields which looked nice in today's light.
    A flat region and tailwinds all day got us quickly to Elena and Gabriel, our warmshowers hosts in Kisújszállás. We enjoyed a Ukrainian dish, local wine and a home made Palinka over an interesting exchange about different cultures.

    My house in Budapest

    October 12, 2019 in Hungary ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    Actually, it was more of a bunk bed in the hostel than the house what Geroge Ezra sang about. Nonetheless, the last few days in Budapest have been great. Since I shared a room with two guys from Bogotá and Mexico as well as a girl from Brasil, my roommates showed remarkable similarities to the cast of the next season of 'Narcos'. While I commuted between the two parts of the city separated by the Danube, Buda and Pest, or enjoyed some traditional wellness in one of Budapest's numerous thermal baths, I spent the evenings in a street café or in the famous ruin bars.
    Although, I was warned at arrival to park the motorcycle on guarded grounds, I had decideded against it and parked directly in front of the hostel, as the parking would have cost three times! as much as the stay in the hostel. Call me a lucky devil, I could continue my ride to Belgrad.

    Well this city was unexpected for sure. Wasn't sure what it would be like I thought I had done enough research but I was pleasantly surprised. It's incredible. Number 2 on my favourite list for sure

    Well worth a visit.

    Had then pleasure of visiting so much today and my hostel was so close I could walk which was amazing.

    Took 5 attempts to use the cash machine cause there is to many 0's in the money haha but I got there.

    Very much in love with Budapest and will be back for a long weekend.

    Szechenyi Baths

    December 30, 2019 in Hungary ⋅ 🌙 -1 °C

    An entire day spent soaking in the thermal waters of the Szechenyi Baths. Planned from 1868, completed in 1913, the spa is a neo-Baroque landmark and feat of water engineering. There are a series of indoor pools of varying temperatures, saunas and 2 large outdoor pools where the water temp was around 30 degrees whilst the outdoor temp was hovering around 3-5 degrees. The steam rising up from the surface of the water gives everything a magical quality and that sunset just topped the day off perfectly.Read more

    City Park Ice Skating - New Years Eve

    December 31, 2019 in Hungary ⋅ ⛅ 2 °C

    When we visited Budapest 5 years ago in Summer, we visited this park but the lake was drained and we only saw photographs of the frozen ice skating rink but we were captivated by these images and vowed to return to Budapest in Winter to ice skate here.
    There are over a 1000 people skating on the rink and it really is quite terrifying to begin with (particularly with no handrail anywhere to hold on to) but we were determined to be brave and get out there. It was a magical experience - we felt super proud of ourselves and we all managed to survive without injury.

    July 28, 2019 in Hungary ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Pünktlich haben wir Marius abgeholt und genauso pünktlich haben wir uns um 10:00 Uhr am Parkplatz Rübholz mit Reinhardt und Tobias getroffen. Bis auf den Stau am Albaustieg ist es relativ gut gelaufen. Und wir sind in Györ am Lakeside Campingplatz gelandet. Wir haben schnell das Zelt aufgebaut und sind dann zum gemütlichen Teil übergegangen.Read more

    Tag 16 - Nick

    July 30, 2019 in Hungary ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    85 km / 930 km - 7 / 81 Stunden

    Ausgaben:

    0 € / 19 € Transport (Fähre, etc.)
    8,5 € / 173 € Lebensmittel
    0 € / 91 € Unterkunft
    0 € / 14 € Eintrittspreise
    0 € / 5 € Anschaffungen

    8,5 € / 302 € Gesamt

    Mit dem "Eintritt" für den Zeltplatz kam auch eine Karte, die es einem ermöglicht, an vielen Orten Rabatt, oder gänzlich freien Eintritt zu bekommen.
    Dieses Kulturprogramm wollte ich nutzen. Und so ging es zuerst zu einem Steinbruch. Witzig: Hier wurde gerade die Bühne für die EAV vorbereitet.
    Dannach ein kurzer Abstecher nach Rust in das Seebad. Lange blieb ich nicht. So sehr hat es mich dann doch nicht eingenommen.

    Also auf nach Ungarn. Gleich hinter der Grenze gab es dann Ungarisch zum Mittag und nach vielen Kilometern auch den ersten Geldautomaten.
    Somit sind auch die kleineren Einkäufe gesichert.

    Viel interessantes gab es auf diesem Abschnitt nicht.
    Nur interessante Beschilderun, die schon der ein, oder anderen Schusswaffe standgehalten hat und schlechte Straßen.
    Nicht so schlecht für Fahrzeuge mit tauglicher Federung. Aber das Fahrrad lässt sich nur in der noch intakten Straßenmitte fahren.
    Also geht es dort voran. Solange, bis man wieder von anderen Teilnehmern an den Rand bewegt wird.

    Ich suchte einen Ort, den ich für groß genug hielt, mich zu beherbergen.
    Dort angekommen fahre ich an einer Büste vorbei, die auf den ersten Blick für mich aussieht, wie Melanchthon. Also dachte ich, ein Foto zu machen. Es war Luther.
    Vertan, sprach der Hahn und stieg vom Schwan.
    Abitur in der Lutherstadt erfreut sich seiner Früchte.

    Leider gibt es in der Stadt keine sinnvoll greifbaren Unterkünfte. Also geht es raus in die Natür. An einem Fluss finde ich ein tolles Fleckchen Erde für diese Nacht.

    Deine Radreise ist wirklich sehr schön und interessant, aber es hört sich stressig an, wenn du schreibst, dass du eine Woche an Kilometern im Rückstand bist. War dein Tagesziel nicht ca. 60 Kilometer an 5 Tagen der Woche und dann 2 Tage Pause???

    Nachdem uns grade so ein wenig die Lust verlassen hat, heute noch weiter zu fahren, haben wir mal kurzentschlossen eine altersgerechte Herberge aufgesucht... ;-) und jetzt noch ein schönes Feierabendbier: man beachte: 1,5 liter, 1 Euro, sozusagen ein "Roadkill" aus der SlowakeiRead more

    18 timmar vaken tid

    March 13, 2020 in Hungary ⋅ 🌙 7 °C

    Nu kroknar vi för ikväll. Från 05:00 till 23:00 är en ansenlig tid att hålla ögonen öppna.

    Vi har ätit en grymt god middag på en trevlig familjerestaurang (Gunillas gulaschsoppa kanske var lite liten... men hon är inte så stor i maten som oss övriga...) ❤

    Imorgon ska jag (Ingela) försöka vila benen om det går 👩‍🦽
