Right, where were we. Set off for Transylvania after Budapest. We got as far as the other side of the Romanian border and we all immediately decided that this is where the hard work begins.
Roughed it in some farmers field, what with the word ‘campsite’ being still very much foreign for at least another few hundred miles. Makeshift BBQs off a grill and beer cans are fantastic, waking up early to the now infamous call of ‘There’s the farmer!’- we successfully evaded him, his stick and his army (not herd) of goats, which had a taste for English meat. read more
Yeah, so far so good! Somehow our trusty steed has made it to Budapest with absolutely nothing wrong with the car yet. Couple of things have fallen off and the flapping broken soft top is deafening on the motorways, but we soon realised that a top speed of 55 was in order to save us filling up 3 times in a single day again, which has sort of saved our ears.
First night camped on a beach near Dunkerque, nightmare sleep and got woken by a tractor doing donuts right by our tent. So back on the roads, shattered already on the 2nd day and heading to the Czech Republic. Mammoth drive that day, stopped for the night in Wolfsburg. Tried our luck at a spot of fishing;turns out poundland don’t do great fishing rods. Another day behind the wheel and we finally got to the Czechout Party in some castle, an hour’s drive from Prague. Swapped stories with fellow teams, collected our free gin tokens and danced the night away, Eastern European style. Turns out 1 guy wrote his car off on the way to Dover so had to hitch-hike the rest of the way! Commitment! read more
