Travel Blogs from Balatonfured
We arrived to Balaton at Sep. 14 afternoon. Quickly found the villa. The house was huge with many nice facilities - billiard, pool (we didn't use it because it was a little bit cold for swimming), tennis, football playground, barbecue corner, big kitchen, nice rooms, big garden.
Shablin family join us at the same day at the night.
What a luxury, woke up and rolled out of a real bed, not needing to fold it away before reaching the bathroom. Followed by a buffet breakfast with no other than real bacon! Oh the travelling joys... Checked out of the hotel, but stayed lounging by the pool and health spa all day making sure we got our ...
... backpackers and we are fairly done in anyway.
Whilst the fabric of the hostel isn't the best, the service and general bonhomie from the people running it makes it a special place indeed.
I need to get an early start for Bratislava so go to bed completely worn out.
No pictures as they are all on the camera. None taken with the tablet. In time, I will upload the camera pictures for all entries.
Music playing on the streets, yacht's sailing, street performers, and seriously hundred of locals wines to be sampled.
Can understand why locals enjoy this area and fair play to town/event organisers in this area, they really know how to cater to every age group and interest.
... dawn. Town is asleep until after noon with some people still wandering home. Its hosts Balaton sound (electronic music festival http://nagyonbalaton.hu/balatonvilagos/ ) each year which was on when we were here. Probably the closet equiv to Ibiza but a lot more affordable and with lots of children activities for families. They have tried to make the shoreline like a beach and they have done a good job of it.
