    Isn't that how some of the best adventures in your life start. Kind of like staring out a window one day and saying, bugger it, I'll ride around the world on a motorcycle.

    Well the old ball and chain is heading back to meet me in Budapest she didn't last long without me, I suppose I cant blame her she misses her stud :lol3:lol3 I've booked us into a nice comfy apartment for a few days of reacquainting time, don't really know why I booked it for 3 days its only going to take 2 minutes but hey you got live in some sort of fantasy world.

    For me I've been stuck in this beautiful northern region of Hungary at a bikers campsite hotel and its been great http://www.magyarroute66.hu/index_uk.html if any of you are ever over this way stop in for a stay its a beautiful relaxing part of the world you wont be disappointed if you spend a few days here by the pool. Get Leen the Dutch owner to take you for a ride around there is some great riding to be had as well. I had never heard of it till the other week riding across Poland when I came across another Dutch rider who put me on to it and I'm so glad he did I've really enjoyed my time here, Ill probably bring Ev back here for a few days to enjoy the sun by the pool as its only a 160 kilometer's and 2 hours ride from Budapest.

    My 3 month Schengen visa is running down but at this stage its looking likely ill kill 3 months out here in Romania Serbia Croatia etc no problems so then will be right to come back in, the cost of living is great here cheap as the most I've paid for a room is 19 bucks so when your not moving to far you get your budget under control real quick.
