Dunakeczi, Hungary

An 8 am departure time was much more reasonable this morning as we left Zagreb for Budapest. Our border crossing into Hungary was a non-event after we worked out a new system with our driver for the passports. It worked well today… Pizza greeted our arrival in Dunakeczi (just north of Budapest) and it was […]

Zagreb

A 6 am departure made everyone cheerful this morning. Fortunately, our border crossing was much easier and quicker than our experience two days earlier and we got to Zagreb in time for our first service of the day. We played the prelude and postlude and followed a baptism. This Lutheran Church is about 130 years […]

It was a lovely and relaxed day of travel. We said goodbye to Ljubljana this morning when the rains stopped and made it to Trieste, Italy for a wonderful pasta lunch. We had a wonderful restaurant and waiter and enjoyed our lunch by the canal of Trieste. The short trip to Croatia followed lunch and […]

Lake Bled

What a great day for us to have free to visit one of the World Heritage Sights here in Slovenia – Lake Bled. You will see photos of the island church (we only saw it, we didn’t go out to the island), the castle perched high above the town and lake, and loads of happy […]

Maribor and Ljubljana, Slovenia

A later start to the day meant that everyone had more energy for what lay ahead (well – maybe not, but it is a nice thought). Some had more trouble waking up than others, but we all managed to move out of our hostel eventually. We visited the local Evangelical congregation (which had been contacted […]
