Spring run towards eastern europe
on: May 02, 2013, 01:36:28 PM
Just starting off for a ten day trip to Hungary & Romania. Loading up things now ....

Should be an interesting journey visiting old friends and having some fun. And i love the long distance driving ... gives you lot of time to think about where you want to go next  :062: ....
Around the world and back ... driven Honda motorbikes all over Europe, Australia, NewZealand, Japan, Russia .....

You lucky man Ojo, We have a few more weeks to go before thinking about a big trip.
Are the  Carpathians as beautiful as the Alps?.. so I can imagine a tour there some day.
Be safe

Hi ojo
If anything change, next 15th of June we'll start (with my wife) a one month trip to Slovenia, Hungary & Romania. Take some notes about interesting places to visit !!
Have a nice trip !
It doesn’t matter the fast you go, but the far you arrive ...
