Ok guys finally got good internet access (yay for egypt!) so here are the photos i missed out from Eastern Europe. So that is for Turkey, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia & Czech Republic and then I can finally post the other blogs from Greece and Italy too so happy reading (& photo viewing too)
Doing a round the world trip next. Want to go to all those places I missed out on last time and a few that I just have to go back to (Rome being one, definately throw your coin into the Trevi Fountain everyone!). Really looking forward to Egypt, New York City and New Orleans (anyone know how to pronounce "beignets"? ... full info
Blue MosqueThe Blue Mosque in Istanbul with all the spires and things. Very impressive looking building.
A Mosque?Might be the blue mosque again or perhaps the Isophia thing-a-me-bob? Unfortunately it was all a little while ago now and I have seen an awful lot of buildings since then.
Me in Blue MosqueThis is inside the Blue Mosque. It was quite impressive looking but unfortunately smelt (very badly) of funky feet - shoes have to be taken off and there is carpet so very stinky.
Opera House in BucharestThis was in Bucharest, they had some absolutely beautiful buildings (such as this) mixed in with really ugly soviet block buildings - made for an interesting looking city. I loved Romania!
My group water logged in BucharestMy tour group drowning as we wandered the streets. Sophie (tour leader), me, Lauren, Mandy, Rick, Lynne, Dania, Kathleen, Fiona and Bridgit, Raissa and Marie in front.
Statue of Vlad the ImpalerVlad the Impaler is who Bram Stoker based his character Dracula. Not really a vampire but a pretty scary man anyways who like to poke sticks into people!
Carpathian MountainsCarpathians are where some people think that vampires originated but obviously they are confused because they started in ireland ... mwahaha that cross is absolutely huge up a really big hill!
Brasov (Transylvania)Me & Raissa in Brasov. Absolutely gorgeous place (love the "hollywood" style sign) had a great time here.
Bram Stokers Castle (Transylvania)Ok this is the castle the movie was based on (Vlad the Impaler was here for a while) but basically it has all been redone in last couple hundred years (recently for these parts I guess) so not scary at all ... bummer!
Church in BudapestThe famous one in middle of town on the Pest side. helpful at all? nah didn't think so :-)
Us in front of palace on Buda sideThe five of us (3 Irish girls Cathleen,Bridg and Fiona, Raissa from Brazil and me) we hung out a lot together on this trip. They were great fun!
Hungarian Wine TastingNot a big wine drinker personally but might have had one or two. It was hilarious (can't beat the W.A wines of course) but we had a good night.
High Tetras SlovakiaNice big mountains that I didn't have to hike in so good fun. Beautiful place though.
Czech RepublicPalace in Prague. The city was really beautiful - as cool as it seems on movies too.
Prague CityReally beautiful. It rained a lot while we were there so bit of a bummer.
Me & Raissa At our last group dinner in Prague. You will notice I am drinking beer (when I don't really drink beer) because it was cheaper than a glass of coke! figure that one out will ya! Had a nice time in Eastern Europe - Romania most of all.
