From Budapest, Hungary I took the Rio Jet bus to Bratislava, Slovakia it was about $8usd and I booked this online. The hotel I had reserved ended up being on the outskirts of town, so my first impressions of Bratislava were cold as the scenery was a mirror of the Soviet Union. The buildings […]Read More Slovakia and the hotel Zerrenpach Osrblie
Lake Hev’is sits at the southern most end of lake Balaton in Hungary. It is the world’s largest thermal lake that you can access and swim in. Fortunately one of my new friends from Budapest told me how to get there and here’s what I found. The ladies all said to get to Hev’is I […]Read More Lake Hev’is
The Széchenyi bath house was not my favorite spa in Hungary, though very famous. The outside architecture is very beautiful the inside is rather white, monotonous and boring. There are some beautiful masterpieces on the ceiling but that is in the visitor’s center. Another reason I was not impressed with this bath was because it was […]Read More The Széchenyi bath house.
Today’s blog post is about the baths at Gillert, a church and a hike. To begin with Gellert baths are probably my favorite part of Budapest to date. They are hot spring fed; ancient, architectural, and artistic. In planning a day at these baths I had given myself a timeframe to work from, of which […]Read More The Gellert baths, caves and hill.
Varga Tanya is an event facility located about an hour drive from Budapest, Hungary. The actual driving time is dependent on traffic. I attended this venue through a program named Angloville, and I’ll talk more about this towards the end of the article. There’s something in a name, and while I’m not completely sure about […]Read More Varga Tanya
I had some time on my hands after unexpectedly leaving Yellowstone so soon. Having owned a copy of Hiking hot springs in the Pacific Northwest for many years, I realized that I was near an area I had always longed to explore. By near I mean the generic Google maps near. The drive from Bozeman, MT to […]Read More Three very unique hot springs outside of Salmon, Idaho.
The Boiling river has been so high on my destination list since I first heard the name! Last year when I was in Yellowstone at this time it was closed. I remember wondering “why would they close a boiling river? Maybe it was too hot?” This year again it was closed, and more insight taught […]Read More The Boiling River
There are two different ways to get to the Fairy falls trailhead. The one we hiked took us up to the new overlook for the Grand Prismatic pool also. So a 2in1 deal and it was worth it. This trail starts at the Steel bridge just south of Mid-way geyser basin. It was simple to […]Read More Fairy falls
The hike to Mystic falls was pure happenstance as Floyd and I were actually trying to reach the new Grand Prismatic overlook. However we mistakenly headed up the Biscuit basin trail and that’s how we came across Mystic falls trail. The trail is really easy going and about .7/10 ths of a mile. Most of […]Read More Mystic falls
I love it when you show up for work and are not on the schedule. Such was the day that I decided to head up to Mt. Washburn. Hiking alone is really not recommended in YNP, but this peak was not only very accessible but very popular. I had already checked out the trailhead and […]Read More Mt. Washburn
