Day 13 – Budapest day 2 – The final

Budapest is shining again under an Indian Summer Sun. But the splendor has tarnished since our conversation yesterday with Barnabas Benscik ...


Day 12 – Budapest day 1

On the delayed train from Bratislava. Flat countryside turns into hills. Sudden castles pop up. It’s sunny and the train is warm.

Day 9 – Krakow and a dolphin

Day 2 – Performing art on a daily basis

Looking back at the photos of our second day on the road, on a beautiful Indian Summer day in Tallinn, one quote keeps resonating.


Day 1 – No Limits – Just Miles

Day one is more or less synonymous to traveling. The Belgian ‘delegation’ bore the brunt by waking up in the middle of the night to get their plane ...
