    Budapest

    The capital welcomed us even in the late evening with oven temperatures…Luckily the apartment was nice and cool. Unfortunately after the “effort” of the ride my flu came back a bit and I still felt tired and not cured. I spent the day writing a blog and in the evening I met Martin, who had been rolling through the city all day. The city scooters we indulged in are really worth their weight in gold in the city. You can get from A to B so fast and easy and since the heat has also subsided a bit, it’s really fun to explore the city on wheels. In the evening…

    The Puszta- A dream come true!

    The largest grassland in Europe. As a rider it has been a childhood dream of mine to ride through these infinite vastness with a horse and to fly over the steppe like the Hungarian shepherds in a wild gallop. Even the scorching heat could not diminish our thirst for action. From the campsite it was not far to Hortobagy. Arrived there the Touriinfomartion provided us with the necessary tips. We visited the Matai stud farm 3 km away and registered for a riding tour. Every day several carriages leave there and there are demonstrations of the shepherds and cattle herds in the Puszta. I wanted to experience however rather on…

The heat, all the people at the festival, the rain in between, or so much to process? Whatever it was, our bodies needed a break. First Martin got it, then me… We both lay really flat with fever, chills and nausea. And that at 33 degrees in the bus. Not really the best place to recover. When Martin regained his strength, he bravely drove a long way to the north, as we actually wanted to…

    Hungary here we come!

    Faster than we thought we were then suddenly in Hungary. The border crossing from one EU country to another is not really worth mentioning, because nothing exciting happens at these borders. Since we reached Hungary in the dark and wanted to visit the “Frei und weg” family the next day, we spent the night under a bridge at a river, somewhere near the border. I slept restlessly, it was unusually hot, the surroundings unknown and the dear mosquitoes greeted us also numerously in the new country. The coolness of the mountains is a blessing especially when sleeping. I have noticed that I never sleep particularly well when we reach our…
