Slovakia and our final concert

The departure from Dunakeczi this morning was sad after an evening with such gracious hosts. It was early, but we had some country roads to navigate on our way to Kosariska. A warm greeting awaited us in Kosariska but the big hit of the party was the litter of puppies. After lunch, we set up […]

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.

Porec, Croatia

We made it to Croatia!

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 […]
