Poland -- Part 4

POLAND | Thursday, 2 Aug 2007 | Views [802] | Comments [8]

Next stop: Warsaw. Thankfully, the weather broke on the first day so the temperatures returned to a bearable level. I was practically dancing in the streets when it started raining. I had a (slightly soggy) chocolate icecream in celebration. Warsaw ... Read more >

Slovakia (and briefly Austria)

I somehow managed to make it to Bratislava Airport so on time that I was there to meet Doug even though the plane arrived half an hour early. Go me, right? So yes, for the next few days I had an official travelling companion in tow for all my adventures.... Read more >

Hungary

HUNGARY | Thursday, 26 Jul 2007 | Views [779]

So I arrived in Budapest bright and early for another swelteringly hot day, after having managed fairly little sleep. Definately prefer night buses to night trains.     The public transport system is pretty great in the city, although unfortunmately ... Read more >

Romania

ROMANIA | Thursday, 26 Jul 2007 | Views [563]

So despite the excitement on the border, I made it to Bucharest on time. Not to the bus station I was expecting, but I got pointed in the right direction and it wasn't too long a walk. Plus it was early morning and therefore the heat was still bearable ... Read more >

ROMANIA | Monday, 23 Jul 2007 | Views [745] | Comments [1]

Now, I rather foolishly thought that getting in to Moldova was going to be the difficult part. But not so. Perhaps it was because we arrived at a relatively civilised time at night rather than stupid o clock in the morning, so the guards still had ... Read more >

Moldova

MOLDOVA | Monday, 16 Jul 2007 | Views [607] | Comments [2]

After the Polish-Ukraine border crossing and the old stories of visa scams, I was expecting the worst for the crossing into Moldova. It was actually a breeze. We were through in no time at all, all passports stamped. One thing I didn't think I'd be doing ... Read more >

So, in the evening of 9th July I got the night bus from Krakow to L'viv. There's a lot to be said for night buses: they're not uncomfortable (as long as you have short legs and don't get travel sick, like me), they're cheap and they're often quicker ... Read more >

Poland -- Part 3

POLAND | Tuesday, 10 Jul 2007 | Views [843]

Just for once, the train trip to Krakow went by with no ticket issues. WIN!     I headed over there with a few folk from the hostel who were all heading on to Krakow and all staying in the Stanger hostel too, on the basis that the Stranger in Wroclaw ... Read more >
