Flag of Hungary  , Lake Balaton,
Thursday, July 31, 2008

Gdy wstalismy o 8mej rano, na parkingu zostaly juz tylko 2 TIRy. Zjedlismy sniadanie, skladajace sie z chleba i napoju grejpfrutowego i poszlismy na wlot do parkingu, lapac stopa. Z tabliczka "Maribor--> Graz" zatrzymalismy TIRowca - Wegra, jadacego do Budapesztu. Nie taki do konca byl nasz plan, ale w koncu o to wlasnie chodzi w autostopie :-). Ten kierowca to weteran, jezdzi ciezarowkami o 25ciu lat, doczekal sie juz wnukow, pali jak smok i pije hektolitry kawy. Calkiem smieszny facet. Dojechalismy w poblize Balatonu, 6km od miejscowosci Siofok, gdy byla 15:30. Tam wysiedlismy i zeszlismy z autostrady w strone jeziora, zeby sie pokapac.
Jeszcze zanim sie sciemnilo, wymyslilismy, gdzie spedzic nadchodzaca noc. Wlasciwie, to ja pomyslalam, a Marcin wypowiedzial na glos. Bylo to najbardziej dziwaczne, a zarazem czaderskie miejsce, w jakim mi sie zdarzylo do tej pory spac - NA jeziorze. A dokladniej, na platformie dla rybakow. Duzo ich tam bylo, mysmy obrali taka niewidoczna z brzegu, miedzy trzcinami. Rozlozylismy na niej namiot. Wygladalo to prawie jak domek rodem z Kambodzy hehe. Pozwolcie, ze nie zdradze, jak sie tam dostalismy, i to z plecakami, to taki nasz maly sekret :o). Ale bylo bombowo!

When we woke up at 8 in the morning, at the parking lot there were maybe two lorries left. We ate a breakfast which contained a bread and a greipfruit juice and went to the entrance of the parking lot, in order to try a hitchhike. With our sign "Maribor--> Graz", we stopped a Hungarian lorry driver, that was going to Budapest. We did not exactly plan to go there, but hey in the end of the day that`s what hitchhiking is about :-). The driver was a veteran - he`s been driving lorries for the past 25 years, has got grandchildren, smoked like a dragon [another Polish expression, I`m sure you`ll get what it means] and drinked litres of coffee. A pretty funny guy. We got near to Balaton, 6km from Siofok town, when it was 3:30pm. We got off there and walked off the highway, towards the lake, in order to swim in it.
Before it even got dark, we`d had an idea, where to spend the upcoming night. Actually, I thought about it and Marcin said it aloud. It was the most bizzare and at the same time, the coolest place I have ever slept in - ON the lake. To be more exact, on one of the platforms for fishermen. There were many of them, but we chose the one that you couldn`t see from the lakeside, in between reed. We pitched our tent there. It looked almost as if a home from Cambodia hehe. Let me not tell you how we got there with our backpacks, it`s our little secret :o). But it was so awesome!
