Ljubljana is a really relaxed city. Well I suppose it would being in a country with only 2 million inhabitants! Apparently this is also due to the tourist season ending which I am really pleased about. I feel like I am finding out what day to day life is like here which is the kind of insight I have been hoping for. The last thing I have wanted on my travels is being surrounded by tourists and things aimed at them, instead of the 'real city'. So I usually escape the touristy areas as fast as I can but here there has been no need.

Photos From Vienna

I found a computer!...


(Sorry no photos of Vienna, I have not been able to upload them yet)


I was very lucky to have a wonderfully sunny day welcome me to Budapest on my first morning. As soon as I left the hostel I could tell just how beautiful the city is and that I was going to enjoy my time here. Next to the river there is a large hill with a monument on the top, this is the Citadel and it was pretty much the first thing I saw in Budapest. I had to climb to the top! I was greeted with a stunning 360 degree view of the city which I could of spend all day looking at.

Goodbye UK… again!

When I arrived in Cardiff everyone commented on how healthy I looked and I felt it! Happy and content from my adventures I was pleased to be back in a familiar place with my friends and in particular Rosie. By the time I left I had lost alot of weight and looked like a ghost! I had very mixed feelings about moving on, due to being so ill it felt like I had not spend hardly any time with Rosie and my meetings with the friends I did manage to see did not feel like enough.

Krakow, Auschwitz and a Small Detour!

After leaving Wroclaw I headed to Krakow on a train with small compartments like you see on films which was really cool! I had no accommodation sorted due to not being able to find a host on couch surfing but found a really good hostel that worked out at £5 a night. This would be my home for the rest of my stay in Poland. I was sleeping in a dormitory and started talking to a nice Australian girl and we planned to visit Auschwitz together. Krakow itself was very touristy but full of some really interesting buildings and bars - especially in the Jewish quarter.
