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 3: Before Saint Tropez to just past Cannes

Day 3 of our cycling tour was a great day. It began when we first opened our eyes and realised that it didn’t actually rain the night before. Our preparations turned out to be totally unnecessary but would be good practice for later in the trip. I set about working on breakfast, while Bert workedContinue reading “Day 3: Before Saint Tropez to just past Cannes”

Last Day in Vienna

Today was our last day in Vienna. We’re heading home on the train tomorrow at 9:30am. The connection in Salzburg will be tight; there are only 8 minutes to switch trains, so let’s hope the train from Vienna isn’t delayed. It’s been a great trip. We set out this morning to take a look atContinue reading “Last Day in Vienna”

Cafes and Christmas Markets

Day 6 was a mix of the old and the new. It was a day of Cafes and Christmas markets – and, of course, FOOD! Another lazy morning faced a serious crisis due to my mismanagement of our bread supplies. Luckily, we bought eggs yesterday and supplemented our sorry stash with some hard-boiled eggs. The successfulContinue reading “Cafes and Christmas Markets”

Zu den 3 Buchteln

Today’s the day – we finally made it to Zu den 3 Buchteln and got a table. But much like one of those TV shows that annoyingly shows the ending first, before going back to 1 day earlier, you’re first going to have to read about our adventures on day 4. After eating some bread from aContinue reading “Zu den 3 Buchteln”
