Facebook Photo Album

Well, we've long been back home... Unfortunately final year undergrad, and postgrad life does not compliment writing blog entries! Instead I'll leave you with a link of our Facebook Photo Album so you can browse and enjoy!…

Backlog (and a bit of laziness)

We apologise for the terrible backlog! Going through hundreds and thousands of photos, and writing about every day is harder than we thought! More posts shall be coming sooner or later!…

Brno, Czech Republic

We knew that for £8.50 per night the campsite in Brno wasn't going to be glamorous...or anywhere near that category. We were right. On arrival we were greeted by a large downward slope, one where every man and his dog has either trampled or driven across to make…

Kraków: Part Two

This morning we skipped breakfast, because the woman running the place told us they forgot to say that we had to pay for breakfast. Even though it was their mistake we still had to end up paying £3 each! Far too much for what we had... Ah well. We then…

Auschwitz, Poland

The continental breakfast was a small spread of the usual suspects. Bread, a bit of meat, a bit of cheese, some fruit, some yoghurt and some cereal and warm milk. Yum. We picked our poison and headed outside onto the terrace, where we promptly got attacked by a wasp. We…

Kraków, Poland

After a long drive to Kraków, with yet another stop-off at a McDonalds (and this time we got pink glasses) we arrived at Villa Zakamycze. The place was REALLY nice... We hit the jackpot, two unexpectedly nice stays in a row! Our bedroom was a fairly standard size, but the…

Prague: Part Two

The plan for day two was to visit Prague castle and take a paddle boat on the river, before finding somewhere to eat. It was another scorcher, 30 degrees again. The walk to the castle was long, and uphill. When we finally got up there, the crowds were crazy! You…

Prague, Czech Republic

Tauber... bischofsheim On the drive to Prague, we had planned a stop at a town called Tauber... Except we couldn't find it, because it's actually a river. so instead we decided to stop at a town called Tauberbischofsheim. Close enough! Before we left Germany, we stopped to get some sweets…

Frankfurt, Germany

Our entire stay at Frankfurt consisted of only two components: being lazy and finding food! We probably would of explored the place more if we had the money to splash, alas a big city with shopping centers has no mercy for the poor folk. And so, for 3 nights stay…

Vianden, Luxembourg

We had packed up camp before 11 AM. Had some difficulties checking out as the lady who owned the campsite knew absolutely no english and her husband who did speak rather good english wasn't there! (The lady also didn't speak German either, as we've now found out Luxembourg has it's…

Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

Our first morning waking up in Vianden gave us the pleasure of eating Pain Toast (or Toast Brot). We opted for this over the normal bread as it was almost a third of the price. How bad can bread be??? Actually, it was pretty damn tasty once it was friend…

Brussels: Part Two

This morning we had an early wakeup. We say 'we', it was the entire camping field - the French gangsters decided that them and a couple of much younger than themselves girls would have their own party at 4 AM... on a campsite... in Grimbergen... and not go out in…

Ypres, Belgium

Got some wannabe ghetto folks camping next to us who are actually 18 year old white French boys - had to tell them to shut up last night as everyone was silent except them screaming with laughter drunk at 11:30-12 -> Darn kids!!! Headed out to the In Flanders…

Brussels, Belgium

Arrival Today we made it to camp Grimbergen in Brussels (yes, the name made Bethy cautious of a dump). 2 hours too early so we sat in the car playing Pokémon (I mean, what else do you do on holiday?!) Ben did have his first drive on a foreign motorway…

Bruges, Belgium

We awoke around 9AM to the sound of our neighbours leaving. We were gone ourselves by 11AM to walk into the city center. Took some time to figure out how to use what we would refer to as zebra crossings - just leg it! Bruges is everything that is envisiged…

Europe: Our Arrival

Today was the start of our big adventure! The eurotunnel was a completely new, weird experience for Beth considering she initially thought it was literally a tunnel - you know, the kind that cars drive through! We were on the top part of the carriage and although it was a…

Europe

Months of waiting have finally come to an end. We're about to embark on 54 days of travelling through Europe in my (hopefully) trusty car, with the roof down! We hope to keep this site updated fairly regularly with pictures and stories about our adventures. To give you a taste…
