I tried to convince everyone we should hire some BMW K1200LT tourers from the journey but we ended up in a Opel Astra for a 2 day trip around the north east of Hungary. There is certainly no chance of dying of thirst in Tokaj.

Being a stuffed bear and therefore having no digestive tract to speak of I had to immerse my whole body into the barrel. There was a nice statue in the town square where I could dry out.

Once I could be carried again without leaving stains on clothing we went to Grandma's home town of Tolcsva and visited her old house.

After and overnight stay near the Slovak boarder we went on to Eger and the first stop was the Turkish Minaret.Up_The_Minaret.jpg Eger_Minar..e_Small.jpg
After a big afternoon being tourists up the castle we stopped for a nice coffee and cake in the most famous cafe in Eger Dobos_Cukrazda_Small.jpg where the backgound music of Aker Bilk, Wayne Newton etc had us all singing along.
