Photos: Disappointing Final Stop on Lake Balaton and back to Budapest for a Day Trip to Szentendre

HUNGARY | Saturday, 25 Feb 2023 | Photo Gallery

The next morning we got back on the train to continue our anti-clockwise journey around lake Balaton. The plan was to spend a night in Siofok before heading back to Budapest. Unfortunately, Siofok was shut during the off season and in the season I'm sure ... Read more >

Photos: Kicking on to Keszthely

HUNGARY | Wednesday, 22 Feb 2023 | Photo Gallery

We hopped on a bus from Balatonfured and were soon being dropped off in Keszethely, a larger town on the southern end of the lake. We were staying in the old town which is a 20 minute walk from the lake shore and had a wonderful apartment for our 3 day ... Read more >

HUNGARY | Monday, 20 Feb 2023 | Photo Gallery

Our planed trip to Jordan had been curtailed due to Wizz Air, so seeing as we were supposed to fly out of Budapest we decided to explore a bit of Hungary as we had only previously been to Budapest. Lake Balaton, not far south of Budapest and one of the ... Read more >

ROMANIA | Tuesday, 24 Jan 2023 | Photo Gallery

Emma got a bonus long weekend from school for the Unification of Romania day so we put our thinking caps on to see where we could get to on the limited transport options from Timisoara. We came up with going to a small village called Borlova and doing ... Read more >

Photos: A Gander at Garda

ITALY | Thursday, 5 Jan 2023 | Photo Gallery

Lake Garda is probably more famous and popular than even Como so, even though you could do a day trip from Bergamo we decided to stay a couple of nights on the lake to do it justice. We got the train to Descenzano del Garda and were soon checking into ... Read more >

Photos: A Soggy day on Lake Iseo

ITALY | Tuesday, 3 Jan 2023 | Photo Gallery

We woke to more rain and clouds but we thought we couldn't just hang around Bergamo so we decided to go a day trip to Lake Iseo despite the inclement weather. We got a bus through the industrial suburbs of Bergamo to Clusone. I'm sure Clusone is a very ... Read more >

Photos: A Meander around Milano

ITALY | Monday, 2 Jan 2023 | Photo Gallery

The new year started with miserable weather so we decided to explore another city instead of the countryside. Milano is only an hour away from Bergamo by train so we shuttled over there to check out the city of fashion. We arrived at Central Station which ... Read more >

Photos: Commanding Vistas of Lake Como

ITALY | Saturday, 31 Dec 2022 | Photo Gallery

Bergamo is a fantastic place to base yourself in order to make day trips to the world famous Italian Lakes. So as we were in the neighbourhood, it made sense to check out if they stand up to the tourist hype. We got a train from Bergamo to Varenna with ... Read more >

Photos: Spending more than a Mo in Bergamo

ITALY | Thursday, 29 Dec 2022 | Photo Gallery

With the limited flight connections from Timisoara we have found ourselves transiting through Bergamo airport on numerous occasions without every stepping foot in the city. Well I did have to stay 1 night near the airport once but the old town situated ... Read more >

Photos: A Brief View of Valencia

SPAIN | Thursday, 22 Dec 2022 | Photo Gallery

We were chasing the winter sun again by escaping the eastern Europe climate and heading to Lanzarote. As always we had to make a stopover somewhere and this time Valencia seemed the best option. The time of the layover meant we had enough time to catch ... Read more >

Photos: Day Trip to Devin Castle

SLOVAKIA | Saturday, 3 Dec 2022 | Photo Gallery

Devin Castle is a short bus ride from Bratislava ( 20 mins and less than a Euro) and is well worth the trip. The weather was against us again but I guess that kept the crowds away and we had the place to ourselves. It was a great place to explore and ... Read more >

Photos: OOOHHHH Vienna !

AUSTRIA | Friday, 2 Dec 2022 | Photo Gallery

With Vienna only being an hour on a regular train service from Bratislava it would have been rude not to take a day trip. Unfortunately, the weather was awful, it was freezing and a mix of snow, sleet and rain followed us around all day. Vienna has some ... Read more >

Photos: A Break in Bratislava

SLOVAKIA | Thursday, 1 Dec 2022 | Photo Gallery

A long weekend break in Romania gave us the chance to explore Bratislava in Slovakia. We got the train from Timisoara to Budapest and changed there for the trip to Bratislava. We loved the old town and the castle on the hill and the city is well worth ... Read more >
