In The Interim – The End of Cycling

October 10, 2012


Budapest – the city of lights


And then there are all the soldiers from Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory looking for work


A visit to the ‘House of Terror’. Used by both the Nazis and the communist regimes as a place for interrogation and confinement. Now turned into a museum.


Meeting with Dave and Leslie for an evening out in Budapest


Headed south out of Budapest by train but then the train hit a car!


Yes, it is a bike path sign. Poor signage, poor surfacing and lots of road sharing challenged our route south to Baja, Hungary ( not Baja, Mexico)

Wild animals on the road


And incredible door handles


Breakfast out on the patio next to the swimming pool. Life is cheap and good in southern Hungary


Great soups


Lots of peppers to make paprika


But still a long way to the Black Sea


It is time to call an end to the trip. Baja is a great place to turn back and save the rest for later…


Goodbye bikes and


Good bye Sierd – what an amazing friend and a wonderful travelling companion. Thanks for making this trip a very special memory in so many ways.

    Hi Tony – I see intriguing image subtitles in this post (10/10/2012) but alas no images. What a stellar Dynamic Duo you two made! Marvel comics might be interested. JimH

    Just found the pics. I am feeling sad that your wonderful adventure together is over…sounds like it has been a ‘once in a life time’ trip for you. Also looks like you will have to finish the Danube later as you are only half way there,
