We are on our way to Croatia. Leaving our apartment, the streets are narrow … with not a lot of room…
but we are soon on some wider roads… and crossing the Danube as we start a four hour drive to Verazdin, Croatia. The Hungarian countryside is much like back home in Alberta.There are a few farms and small villages but the rural areas seem to be sparcely populated.
At the border they checkout our passports and the car registration, then let us pass. We arrive at our new Airbnb around 2:00. Our apartment is great and there is parking right on the street . We are right on the edge of the town, with fields nearby. There is also an empty apartment building across the street and two more only partly constructed buildings that look abandoned. We think the economy here must be struggling. Here is another view across the street from our apartment . There is a small grocery store on the corner, but not much else close by.
Congratulations to Bob for driving on those narrow roads and busy highways in foreign countries! I know that I would find that stressful and wouldn’t want that job.
Yes, He did an amazing job. My job was being the navigator. We worked well together, no big problems driving or navigating during this trip!
At least they drive on the right side!
Good to have a grocer nearby🤗
Yes, always nice to be able together groceries easily. It is much easier driving on the same side of the road that we are used to. Driving on the other side is a bit more challenging.
