During the break Rob and I travelled with a car to 5 countries: Germany, Austria, Italy, Slovenia and Hungary. I took lots of pictures and met many interesting people. I will blog about them in 2-3 blog posts. Here is the first lot of pictures of the places we have visited that I would like to share with you.
Following are pictures of a very old but famous amusement park in Vienna called the Prater.
And below are some grand buildings in Vienna.
A wall covered with prints of drawings by local artists of Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia. This wall was inside a castle.
Maribor is a lovely, cosy little Slovenian city where we stopped while on the way to Hungary.
We visited a few places in Hungary. I liked the nature and the rich culture, where a few places in Budapest, the capital city, have been named World Heritage by the UNESCO. And yes, Budapest was one of my favourite cities, whose pictures will be posted in a separate blog post later. But here are some pictures of other parts of beautiful Hungary.
Lake Balaton is the biggest lake in Europe.
Tihany is a touristic little town on the bank of Lake Balaton. The picture above is an outside wall of a suvenir shop selling local products, a lot were made of chillies.
I hope you enjoyed part 1 of the virtual tour of my summer holidays.
