Novi Sad, Serbia’s second largest city!

After a long bus ride, we arrived yesterday in Novi Sad. There wasn’t a lot of sun hours left, so we walked quickly to our hotel, checked in, and headed straight out into town. Luckily, we stayed at a (cheap!) hotel right outside the historic town centre. In fact, by the time we got out,Continue reading “Novi Sad, Serbia’s second largest city!”

The Road to Serbia: Day 3&4 – Zagreb to Niš

We had another lazy, no-alarm morning – this time in Zagreb. The bed was comfortable enough and we were in no rush to be anywhere at all. I found 2 possible bakeries and, luckily, I forgot where the first one was because the second one was really great! We got croissants and sandwiches for breakfastsContinue reading “The Road to Serbia: Day 3&4 – Zagreb to Niš”

The Road to Serbia: Day 3 – Zagreb

We woke up in Ljubljana refreshed! Since the bus wasn’t until 10:45, I didn’t set any alarm and woke up naturally some time before 8. Jelena was still sleeping, so I brushed my teeth and slipped out for a stroll to the market. Although I read a lot of good things about the market, IContinue reading “The Road to Serbia: Day 3 – Zagreb”

The Road to Serbia: Day 2 – Ljubljana

It was another early morning to make another early train. We arose at 6:30am, brushed our teeth and headed to the Vienna main train station to get some breakfast. We got some smoothies for vitamins and a few sandwiches. They were good but, sorry, no photos! The train was at 7:58, so we had timeContinue reading “The Road to Serbia: Day 2 – Ljubljana”

The Road to Serbia: Day 1 – Vienna

This year, we’re spending Christmas in Niš. But, in light of the climate crisis, I wanted to avoid flying there. I started thinking about how we could get there by train, bus, or car, and what we could do along the way. Since Christmas comes later in Serbia, I thought maybe this would be aContinue reading “The Road to Serbia: Day 1 – Vienna”

Day 12: German alpine route

After a couple months of slacking, it’s time to report on the last couple days of my bike trip! I’m actually on my next trip now (not biking), so I’ve got some spare time in the train. It was cold, wet and foggy in the early morning at our Bavarian camp. The Allgäu region isContinue reading “Day 12: German alpine route”

Day 11: Four countries, one day

For the second time on the trip, we awoke in total comfort. I think maybe even if you plan always to camp, it might not be a bad idea to treat yourself to a hotel here and there, even if you don’t need it. We took full advantage of the sun coming through the windowContinue reading “Day 11: Four countries, one day”

Day 10: To Splügen Pass and beyond

We awoke to a cool but already sunny morning in the camp. Bert had the smart idea to set up our tent in between as much shelter as possible, so we didn’t get too much wind battering us in the night and I think that made a big difference. For those interested, the holiday homeContinue reading “Day 10: To Splügen Pass and beyond”
