Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 61

Monday 1st August Today was supposed to be dedicated to a good long hike in the Kitzbuhel region of Austria. Problem was, we woke up this morning with no plan at all, except for “go to Kitzbuhel and figure it out.” As we drove towards Kitzbuhel, the traffic jam leading into this “quaint mountain town”… Continue reading Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 61

An American family we met in Lithuania described Bratislava as the only place they hadn’t liked, in their entire year long camper-van trip. I also distinctly remembered passing through Bratislava on the train 8 years ago when I was… Continue reading Euro Road Trip Diary – Day 55
