Travel Blogs from Szeged
Szeged seems to be a nice little town. Lot of people were out this night and it seemed quite busy.
... which they won from Canada by .04 second. It was a joyous occasion .
It is a little sad that it is all over and because the paddlers are from all over Australia we won't see them till nationals. Some wonderful friendships have been made.
Well it is goodbye to Szeged. Last night we had a team gathering with everybody having drinks for the first time. It went to the head very quickly. Kel ...
... asked me to get some ice for Warren to help keep his temperature down. A simple task you would think! But no, after asking all the stores could I buy some ice, I ended up at the IDBF office, they sent me to first aid.....no ice.....then after about 10 minutes of conversation which I couldn't understand I was told to go back to one of the stores , find a volunteer and he would help me. Well help me he did, not with a cup of ice but ...
... we have the thermal baths as part of it.. So we came home, changed and went to soak in the pools. The one we choose was supposed to be 38degrees, so 30 mins there and back for dinner.
Warren has tomorrow off so he will stay here and hopefully beat this rotten flu. There are quite a few people with varying degrees of it so they have been told to stay put. It is only the 1000 m races tomorrow so not his race.

... to bed. The result of that is we didn't go to the opening ceremony which is on now. Actually Gary and Allan were told not to go as they both had been unwell. Alan is in stroke with Warren. For you non paddlers that means they are the first paddlers in the boat and the set the pace for the boat. In other words very needed. Of course they will be there tomorrow as the first day is the 2000m races which are on the river Tisza. A hard race but exciting.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
This hotel was good but the only room available at the time was a triple with 3 single beds. The shower was a cubicle in the corner with no privacy. As there was 2 of us we just took turns having a shower while the other went out for 5 mins. The toilets were outside in the hallway. The main problem was, that night their wi-fi was not working and whenever I enquired about any hotel, the first question was....got wi-fi?
