Central Europe: travelogue summer 2003

We have five weeks this summer and we travel through many countries in central Europe. We discover new places, but we also come across places and people we would like to see again. The main goal (in advance) was to explore Hungary in search of a nice region where we might want to buy a holiday home. But it soon became apparent that we did not feel at home in Hungary at all and we abandoned that plan. In fact, we decided that we rather spend our money on traveling than on a permanent place where you are obliged to go.
