This time we traveled through the Austria. We drove the A6 and A2. One hour and we were in Vienna. Short stop for a walk and drink. And then for A2 towards Gratz. Unfortunately there was a very bad accident on our way, we only saw totally crashed Audi A8, it was in parts and also burned. I had a goose-flesh on my skin. Terrible. But this is how it is – when you have an accident on freeway it is almost always very serious. Who drives slowly… From that time on the red light lit on our minds and we tried to drive more carefully. But you never know… Somebody else can cause the accident and your safest ride may mean nothing. Brutal life.
The city was very pretty and climatic, though very little frequented by tourists. So we really liked it. And my car also, cause there was a lot of places to parking. We spent very nice time there, walking and talking. The weather was perfect. We were leaving the city picked up with lots of new ideas for spending our trip time. One example as result of our brainstorm we came away with was to have one day totally unplanned. Without looking for the weather forecast, without planning what to see and where to go. And having only some small money in our pockets. That day might be really fascinating, don’t you think ?
No, no, no. And once again no. Why I supposed to resign from driving if I love it. Nothing stand in the way to do stops more often. No rush.
Do you like to be surprised sometimes ? I think it is a very positive feeling and everyone needs to be astonished from time to time. That day was full of smile, happiness and plenty of conversation. From the airport we went to my hotel room and Jonathan took a shower and prepared for the meeting. It supposed to start at 10 a.m. in a one of the best hotel restaurant in the local area.
There was a swimming pool. And shopping. Coffee, lunch and walking. And cinema in the evening. And sweet laziness on the bed. The day finished without special incidents. Thanks God! I have enough of them! I went for a sleep like a small child – supper, cartoons and politely head to my fresh pillow. About 3 a.m. something disturbed my tough, nice dream. Guess who phoned me…Jonathan!
Pain…pain.. welcome to the hangover Two pills and sleeping again…
After two hours I woke up with more conscious. Shower. Dressing. News. Breakfast. And towards my cozy car. And ahead. I do not want to waste a minute of my life. Three crossroads from my hotel’s Olympic size swimming pool. When I only opened my eyes that morning I wanted to be in the pool. I really like this sport, this feeling of pleasant weariness. I would swim all the long day.
The other day I set on exploring Pecs more acutely then it occurred last time. For obvious reason of course. Great city, nice people, unforgettable landscapes. After quite intensive journey on the bike with pleasure I took a place on the regional boat. There was five people on and a guide–great man! All were listening to him with curiosity! So it was not surprising, that the time was passing very fast. Unfortunately the weather got bed in the afternoon, so I had to change my plans and do something to spice up that time.
Finally I reached what I wanted! In good mood and with the sun shining I put my foot on Hungarian soil. I was in Pannonia region. It got its name two thousand years ago, when the Roman legions were stationed there. Lying west of the Danube it has everything that makes exploring the country and recreation pleasant and diverse. Blessed with natural beauty and full of history, it is ideal for boat trips and cycling and also offers a wide selection of excellent wines. I was going to try everything of it! And I could not wait.
That day my car refused to start the engine. I could not believe, it had vehicle inspection recently! Brake pipes and brake pads were changed, the seal in the cap was replaced for the new one, all leaks were protected. Everything should works!
We were talking…and laughing… we were approaching to pedestrian crossing so we began to slow down. And then I stopped. But Jessica not. What I only saw then it was car paint and alloy wheels, I heard screech of car tires. Nothing else. I repeated this story to Jonathan fourth or fifth time. He could not believe. He was deeply depressed. And I felt kind of guilty.
