Where I stayed
The coolest homestay!
Race day was fine and not too hot, well for us down in the town, unfortunately it rained in the mountains during the duathlon
Weyer is beautiful, quite a bit like Switzerland - very green and beautiful, we had a day to explore after the race. It rocks having a car, so much freedom. Was a bit sad to leave, but Vienna was awaiting us.
Lucky we caught the last week of the Vienna film festival that runs for 64 days - so the city had an extra cool vibe. Vienna is full of amazing buildings and is easy and compact to get about. We hired couple of bikes and hooned about.
Budapest, Hungary next - again a beautiful city on the river. We stayed two nights...ahhhh luxury of hotels after sleeping in a van. It was stinking hot (mid 30's) and would have been unbearable anyway
Today we arrived in Bratislava, Slovakia today. A much quieter city - only about 500,000 people here. Nice change of pace after the hustle and bustle of Budapest.
So we think that the Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava are the closest 3 capital cities in
Europe - super easy to get to, part of the beauty of Europe!
Anyway we hope you enjoy the pics and video, next move is back to Czech in next couple of days via??? Not sure - but the Tom Tom is a bloody god send. Powerman Zofighen in Switzerland is next weekend, Jarrad could be competing its about twice as long as the Austria race - OUCH.
Cheerio for now
