canals, bridges, gondalas - you know, the usual....
Been a bit lazy getting the blog up and running, but with internet access limited and the need to check emails, news, CL build-up, CL grieving etc, haven't had a chance before now. So a brief summary so far:
Venice: Magic of course, though overrun by tourists (and pigeons), unique experience however.
Ljubljana: Secret treasure - devoid of tourists, but a mini-Prague in a very cool country (don't tell Ryanair or Easyjet).
Vienna: Very stylish city, not my favourite though.
Bratislava: Disturbing signs of a "British invasion", but a great little town - cool castle and old town (common motifs in central Europe).
Budapest: Partly spectacular, partly run-down, not quite sure of Budapest (suffers a little in comparison to Prague).
Krakow: Very cool town, took the usual tourist trips to Auschwitz and the Salt Mine which were fascinating.
Train travel has been great - the scenery in Slovenia, Austria and Czech Republic is great (overnight trip through eastern Hungary and Slovakia not so good). Hostels have been a mixed bag, some very cool, some a little grim, some downright bizarre. Will probably miss them on the three day train ride and five
Ljubljana's main square with castle on hill
week camping though.
