Where I stayed
Wyrzucono nas w miasteczku o nazwie Esztergom, w poblizu mostu laczacego Wegry ze Slowacja. Pod pieknie oswietlona bazylika trwala jakas impreza, muzyka, pelno ludzi i halas. Mysmy byli jednak zbyt zmeczeni,chcielismy sie pozbyc plecakow. Przeszlismy na slowacka strone w poszukiwaniu noclegu. Myslelismy o rozbiciu sie przy rzece, ale po drodze tamze zauwazylam napis "camping". Zapukalam do bramy. On - Amerykanin z Maryland, ona Slowaczka, mowie ze jestem z przyjacielem i chcemy rozbic namiot, ze nie mamy za duzo pieniedzy (zostala nam resztka wegierskich forintow i troche Euro). Marcin jeszcze obrazowo pokazal swoja niefortunnie zlamana na pol karte platnicza, wiec kobieta mowi: "ojoj, to dajcie ile macie". Za resztke naszych forintow (jakies 10zl) rozbilismy sie na ich campingu - gospodarstwie i bardzo szybko usnelismy.
Rano wstalismy wczesnie i poszlismy zobaczyc male, ale urokliwe miasteczko Esztergom
We were dropped off in a town called Esztergom, near the bridge connecting Hungary with Slovakia. There was a party just below a beautifully illuminated basilica, music, a lot of people and noise. We were too tired though, and wanted to get rid of our backpacks. We walked to the Slovakian side in order to find a place to stay overnight. We were thinking of pitching our tent by the river, and then randomly I noticed a sign "camping". I knocked on a gate. He was an American from Maryland, she was Slovakian; I`m telling them that I`m here with a friend of mine and that we want to pitch a tent, that we don`t have too much of money (we had some Hungarian forints left, plus some Euros). Addictionally Marcin would show them his unfortunately broken debit card, then the woman said: "Awww, you can pay as much as you have". For the rest of our forints we`d pitch our tent in a campground - household and went to sleep quickly.
We`d wake up in an early morning and go to see this tiny, but cute town Esztergom. The basilica wasn`t as well impressive during the day as at night, though we climbed up the hill in order to admire the views from there. We came back to Mrs Erika`s household, ate our breakfast and it was time to go towards Bratislawa...
