HUNGARY & SLOVAKIA from 1st to 6th June 2008

At the beginning of June, my wife and I (as assistants to four Hungarian staff) had the job of looking after a very select group of people (only eight of them) on a de-luxe train ride through Hungary and Slovakia, stopping each night in comfortable hotels. The tour focussed on the gastronomy of the countries, plus some tourism, and scenic train travel. It involved joining in when lots of good food and drink were consumed - tough, but somebody had to do it!

There was quite a lot of frustration as interesting looking birds were glimpsed from the windows of the moving train, most of them flying away unidentified as the train flushed them from the track-side. However, there were times when I was able to take a little time off – mainly in the mornings before breakfast, but occasionally during the day. The following is a glimpse into what I managed to find during those times.

I'm pleased to report that the anonymous spam problem seems to be solvable without using word verification. I'm now just using the 'Registered Users - includes OpenID' option in Blogger settings, and I'm not getting any spam - touch wood! I've also not received any contact from people saying that they are no longer able to make comments.
