Voyage to Hungary

It was a LONG drive from Krakow to Budapest. The roads in Poland aren’t quite the best, and there was a detour that threw us way off track! Without GPS guidance in Slovakia we had to relay on gasp MAPS! But we ended up arriving without many problems. We were so exhausted that we only had the energy to go out for dinner and then crash at the hostel last night. This morning we decided to try and take care of the car issues (needed a replacement tire and to fix the window) and it was a total disaster. Took almost 4 hours all said and done, and we still don’t have a tire or a working window! We hadn’t eaten all morning either… so we finally got back to the city and had late breakfast/lunch or early dinner at 5:30! Uggh..

But we finally had a chance to start exploring the city – decided to stop real quick to post. I’ll have to send the pics tomorrow! Until soon!

The drive from Prague to Krakow was a mixed bag of incredible mountain
roads, decent highways and some of the worst roads I have ever driven
on. We couldn’t believe that they were considered highways! As our
last night in Prague was a late one (4am) – Matt took a decent nap in
the car while I battled with the crazy drivers on the 2 lane highways!
Once arriving in Krakow we quickly found our hostel. Much to our
delight the Hostel was incredibly clean and centrally located. After
dropping off our stuff we headed into the old part of the town.

After a late first night, we actually got a decent start on the
morning! Getting out by 10am! We decided to walk up to the Prague
Castle and ended up spending the majority of the day there. We opted
for a 2 hour guided tour as well as a ticket to fully explore the
castle. We really lucked out with the weather again as you can see in
the pictures! Learning about the history of Prague was quite
interesting as well!
