Batumi, Georgia

We’ve made it to batumi in Georgia! The border crossing was a horrible 3 hour wait but getting through was easy! Tho we had a tire explode on the motorway so had to change it and get a replacement!

Dubrovnik and everything so far!

Well it turns out iPads are rubbish travel companions, so as soon as I’m getting back it’s being sold! Blog posting is a nightmare and video editing next to impossible, other than that everything is awesome!

we did some busking in Dubrovnik and made 11 kroner, about 1 pound! We are all super lethargic due to the heat and the trip is very hard going.

Czech Out 2012

The adventurists threw a cool party in a castle just outside of Prague, filling the place with bars, BBQs, bands and DJs until 2am. When that finished another DJ kicked off outside the castle until daylight but I was well asleep by then. The high light for me was definitely the fire show they out on!

Dan and I bought out the Flowtoys and fire poi and spent an hour spinning in front of the party.

When I woke up on the Tuesday I discovered one of my tent poles had snapped so now I’m on a mission to fix that…. Gonna gaffa tape a tent peg to it….

We drove through Slovakia, then Austria to get lunch. We found a pizza place and i randomly pointed to something on the menu, the. We realised we had no cash so had to bounce to a cash point. When we got back three of the largest pizzas were on the table and yet again I’d ordered a fish pizza. We couldnt finish them all so hit the road to hungary and found a hostel with other rally participants in the Center of Budapest.

In the evening we went to a bar, that I’ve forgotten the name of, which is probably the best bar I’ve been to in my life, so I should probably remember it….

Prague

We made it to Prague last night and actually did some planning to mitigate the disaster the last 2 days have been :) we ate at a local restaurant around 11pm, 3 courses of goulash, strudel and cabbage soup for about £5.50! Was really good! It’s been nothing but rain still so haven’t been able to do any busking yet.

Today we are going to find a mechanic to look at the fan belt, it’s sounding a lot better so it might have just been wet but it’s not worth the risk, and Ive found an iPhone repair shop so will see what they can do.. The screen just stays black and the camera light remains on forever!

The hotel we are in does a Swedish breakfast? So I’m going to have a shower and find out what that really means!

German autobahns arent all they are cracked up to be, we got 92mph out of the car, with the wind behind us on the downhill, but we spent 90% of the time crawling at 20, the areas with speed limits flowed a lot faster and there was less congestion over all, so don’t believe the hype, sure you can go fast but only for about 30 seconds!

I also managed to burn my back in the shower :o
