We managed to survive the first afternoon in this city named after it's 4th century monks (München) but only just! I think the snow in Innsbruck was a few degrees warmer than here! But as any good tourist does on coming to a new place, they get ... Read more >

Villach

AUSTRIA | Friday, 2 May 2014 | Views [672]

By now, we've fine tuned our train-catching skills like a well-oiled German machine, and boarded the rail jet to Villach without a hitch. We chose this route south because it winds it's way through some beautifully scenic country. Steep precipitous mountains ... Read more >

Vienna

AUSTRIA | Wednesday, 30 Apr 2014 | Views [630] | Comments [2]

We made good time to get to the train station early and settled in for the three hour ride to Vienna. The rail jet trains are more comfortable than the other one we tried, and reached speeds of up to 160kph. So the countryside zoomed past us for most ... Read more >

Budapest in the rain

HUNGARY | Sunday, 27 Apr 2014 | Views [741] | Comments [1]

Budapest remained cloudy with drizzling rain for most of the day, and that's probably not a bad way to describe our spirits, drizzling. But the hotel supplied ample information on tourist opportunities, as well as a good buffet breakfast, so we planned ... Read more >

The pre-dawn start at the Brasov station went smoothly and we found ourselves to be the only passengers in the first class carriage.  It didn't take long before we left the city behind and the familiar scenes of farmland and woodlands replaced the ... Read more >
