We're getting use to boarder crossings now and getting stamps in our passports is becoming a bit of a novelty! The boarder guards can't have to get the stamp out very often as it usually takes a while to find it!! The passport is looking a bit fuller!
First impression of Slovakia is good... it's very green, trees and paddocks everywhere, we spent our first night right next to a beautiful big lake, quite picturesque! Very cold at night, and very hot in the morning, no sleep ins for a while! It gets really hot in the vans, even with a roof vent open! For the next few days we just chilled... didn't drive to far before we found a nice little spot and pulled in for the day. The boys did stuff to the vans, Wattie needed an oil change and Digger and Astro put a new vent in for the fridge to keep it a but cooler! And us girls spent the day on the computers updating these blogs and naming photos while lying in the sun!
We even made it in to Hungary for dinner just to say we have been to another country! The rules are you have to sleep or eat there for it to count!!
From here we made our way to Vienna to meet up with half the clan, Hamish and Katie had been and picked up Rachel so we were now a total of 15people!! 6 of the group are headed to a wedding in Slovakia so we thought we would take our time seeing the sights of close by Vienna! Beautiful buildings... we strolled the streets and sat in a café and had schnitzel for lunch... "while in rome!". We found an amazing free camp spot, right by the river....we did the kiwi thing and had a BBQ for dinner and a nice chill out!! From here it was off to Slovenia...
