Its now close to the end of September and we’ve enjoyed the most wonderful summer here in the UK. So searching for some sunshine to warm the bones has certainly not been a priority but we do live only a stones throw from these fascinating countries so feel incredibly silly not to take advantage of it.
After what seems like a lifetime we are back on the road again, so to speak. The wings were clipped as we sat tight here in the UK waiting for a result of our visa application. And while this was happening we continued to get some great contracts. So it wasn’t all bad as the diary was definitely full.
After almost two weeks of wonderful discoveries in Turkey we were now heading to Istanbul.
The citiy's skyline had always held a magical and romantic image.
Another one Captivated by Cappadocia
Our flight from Istanbul to the Cappadocia region was over in a blink, and to think that we’d toyed with the idea of taking the overnight bus. That might have been a great option to the young backpackers we met, who insisted a free nights accommodate made it well worth its while, but not us these days, especially when you think both modes of transport cost the same!!!
After what seems a long summer in the UK we are more than ready to get our travelling shoes on again. Although its been pretty good weather and fabulous to have some great friends around so life has hardly been dull.
So here we are in Berlin and in one breath I have so much to say about this fascinating city yet in another you feel like its so hard to describe because its all about the vibe and heart beat rather than about what we saw.
Heading to Hungary was the next step and although the first idea had been to enjoy what I envisaged would be a romantic train, trip from Vienna to Budapest, we found other options. A weekend special offer of only 5 euros per person for the three hour bus trip was just too good to turn down
We're off to Slovakia for a couple of nights, staying in Bratislava the capital. Not a spot I've ever given a lot of thought too, infact truth be known I had to get the map out to see where it was, but courtesy of David Lines leading the charge we're off.
