Our first night in Hungary was spent just over the border and we woke up to snow on the roof. It was a bit unexpected so we turned to the south and Heviz for a swim in the thermal waters. The temperature was 32 degrees centigrade and there was snow on the trees around the lake. There was no doubting where the lake was as there were huge clouds of mist wafting across the road. It was quite smelly (sulphur dioxide or bad eggs) but definitely what the doctor ordered and warmed us up nicely.


We headed on to lake Balaton and tried hard to find a campsite but they all laughed at us and said “no, closed for the winter”. We ended up sleeping outside a huge 24 hour Tesco’s. Not very scenic but there you go. Eastwards was calling us so we turned towards the Romanian border, not the most dramatic of landscapes, mostly flatlands but we needed to make up some time and it really was too cold to enjoy it.
