    December 19, 2017 in Slovakia

    Well what another beautiful place. .and so much history. It is very moving when you are told so many stories about the war and communism as it was here for years...Budapest is actually split by the river and one side is called Buda and the other pest...and they don't really like each other...

    Gönczöl pince

    March 3 in Slovakia

    A pihenő után autókba vágtunk magunkat és Garamkövesdre mentünk, ahol Oszi pincéje van.
    Itt sétáltunk egy picit, fölfelé a hóban (végre nem fáztam) egészen addig amíg csodálatos panoráma nem tárult élenk. Szemben Esztergommal a bazilikaval.
    Aztán vissza sétáltunk a pincébe, ahol óriási borkóstolásba kezdtünk. Nem is tudom hányféle bor került elő , de 20 alatt biztos nem álltunk meg.
    Én továbbra is félgőzzel kóstoltam, nem estek jól a borok. Vagy csak féltem hogy a sok fajta megárt?
    Vacsira őz gulyást (inkább levest) kaptunk uborkával.
    Ezt már Kormos Karcsi bácsi pincéjében fogyasztottuk (ott volt fűtés ). Ott is előkerült minden ami a pincében fellelhető fajta volt.
    Amikor meg már nem tudott újat mutatni akkor kezdte az elejéről a sort... pfffff

  • Day1

    Újabb Gyati tours ezúttal átmerészkedtünk a szomszédba, Szlovákiába. Igaz ugyan csak épp hogy... mert Párkányba érkeztünk. Szóval gyakorlatilag egy híd választ el minket az őshazától.
    Kubinak van itt ismerős borásza így hozzá jöttünk látogatóba.
    Nem a szokásos nagy csapat de így is jók leszünk.

    Érkezés után egy bbq vacsorával indítottunk. Volt pulled pork, pulled beef, csirkemell, csirkecomb, pulykacomb, marhanyak és oldalas zöldséggel krumplival salátával. Egyszóval igazi terülj terülj asztalkám.
    Mellé meg sorra jöttek a borok, vagy 12 féle, ebből mondjuk egy kiesett mert dugós volt. Valahogy nem estek most jól így inkább csak megkóstoltam oket, aztán ment a saját készítésű cuveembe...

    Gyor to Komarno - 50.2km

    June 28, 2016 in Slovakia

    Nice cycle through little villages, local forested areas and farms.

    Watched one combine harvester cut and collect wheat and another one bale up the "leftovers" for animal feed.

    Komarno has 2 parts. One on the Hungarian side of the Danube and the other on the Slovakian side of the river.

    Food is a lot cheaper in Hungary, who also still have their own currency - the Forint. Yesterday's lunch of 2 Kebap in Pita and Coke was a mere €3 😊.

    Many Slovakian people cross the bridge from Slovakia to go shopping at Tesco's on the Hungarian side of the river.

    Komarno to Esztergom - 57.6 km

    June 29, 2016 in Slovakia

    Left Slovakia again and headed back to Hungary.

    The cycle paths weren't as new and well maintained and the one we rode on yesterday, but at least we were on a path of sorts and off the main road.

    We rode past fields of sunflowers and wheat and many derelict old buildings and factories on our way to Esztergom. Oh and about 500 Suzuki's on trains and trucks ....

    The Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption and St Adalbert also known as the Esztergom Basilica is visible from at least 3km away. This is the head of the Catholic Church in Hungary.

    Tomorrow we head for Budapest on the last day of the 12 day cycle trip.

  • Day206


    March 28, 2017 in Slovakia

    Took the bus to Nitra today which is about an hour and s half from Bratislava. Surprisingly I met up with Marta on the bus so we had a good talk on my way to Nitra. She gave me some really good day trip ideas for super cheap prices and told me to take a different cheaper bus back to the city which was higher caliber, less expensive, better service and complimentary coffee on board. I immediately booked my ticket back when I got to the station and she sure was right it was a way nicer trip back. Spent the day at the Nitra castle which was occupied by the Turks at one time and was also know as the mist episcopal place in all if Slovakia. The ancient Slovak language originated from here. Pope John Paul II visited Nitra in June 1995 and a large statue of him stands on the grounds of the castle. The entrance of the castle originally had a large draw bridge but now has a Stone bridge at the entrance. In the summertime there are concerts and evening films played in the castle square. The crypts are not accessible to the public but there is a large wooden carved scene of the last supper next to the hand dug 60m well. The carvings were beautiful. I then found the synagogue which was very interesting and featured graffic art by a locally born Jew who returned to Israel to live out his life. His family was lost in the holocaust and he was the lone survivor. Unbelievable art. I learned that the Jewish people don't adorn their synagogues with holy statues because theirs is a personal connection with God and nature and is not represented by idols. Very interesting. The synagogue was very simple, white and had a scripture tablet of the Torah above the alter. A large number of Jews lived in Nitra and were shop keepers, jewellers, bankers and tailors. Made my way back through town which had a huge square surrounded by restaurants. Had a lemon gelato on the way to the bus station for a mere 60 cents. 22 degrees today!Read more

    May 4, 2017 in Slovakia

    Road trip to Bojnice with my cousin Natalia and my Godmother Gizka. We laughed for two days straight. My godmother is so positive at 83 years old and can recite history and knows everything about our humongous family. Natka and I went to the castle where they were celebrating the festival of ghosts and we were entertained by a theatrical performance of castle history and witchcraft in medieval times. The castle is the most visited in Slovakia and looks like Disneyland castle. The castle sits on a crater and was built in 1113. Walking from the castle you can reach the thermal spas which are deluxe and well known throughout Slovakia. Met new cousins Janka and Marienka who are older than me because my uncle was older than my mother and had ten children. Cold winters in central Slovakia back then. Our visit was full of laughter and rich with family history. Thanks to my godmother for arranging this visit. My cousin Marienka has a brewery and invited us to come stay with her. Looking forward to our next visit.Read more

    to Komarom via Gyor

    May 24, 2016 in Hungary

    The temperature dropped 20 degrees C overnight announced by huge peals of thunder. First two hours of cycling were damp but with a tailwind on good cycle tracks.

    Weathered a shower in a bakery in Gyor that happened to do good coffee and cake.

    The approach to Gyor from the south is pretty and sudden and the old town is attractive. However leaving Gyor going East takes a long time with industrial scenery. There is a huge Audi plant to the European which makes 90% of all Audi engines.

    A section of the official route was unsurfaced and nearly unrideable after the rain.

    Since finding digs in Komorom I've walked over the Danube to Slovakia and back but then been pinned in by more rain.

    Pics: poppies, crane nesting and tending a chick on top of a telegraph pole, view along the Danube.

    Last leg

    November 15, 2017 in Slovakia

    So a breather in the lounge... Time to drink water and snack on nuts and olives. We could, of course, got roaring drunk and eaten our way around the world but even for our confused body clocks it was only about 10 am and so far too early for that.

    We watched activities in the lounge including the neck massage service and generally passed the time. It's always worse on the way home... Although it is good to be home it doesn't have that frisson of excitement that flying off to a new destination has.

    On arrival at our gate lucky me I got randomly chosen for a complete search of me, my bag and all its contents, kindle out of case, tablet out of case.. Much discussion of what my few remaining Chinese coins were! But eventually they decided I was OK and I was released to join Dad. We watch sunrise over Istanbul whilst waiting for boarding to commence... About 30 mins later than we were advised so a bit more tedium.

    Eventually on to the plane and away. Another breakfast and now the clouds have cleared and I am looking at the clouds hanging just in a river valley and now where else. By happy coincidence my copy of New Humanist has a very similar photo of smoke doing the same thing. I love the maplike quality of being able to watch the ground from a great height. We have just passed a belt of hills that seem to divide a great Hungarian plateau...

    Lots of flat hedgeless fields... I can see why Debbie in the Archers likes farming here... You could drive your tractor for miles...
