From Budapest to Dresden

So after nearly three weeks in one place, we’ve just travelled through four different countries in only two days! We need to get to Poland, and had originally planned to drive from Budapest through Slovakia to get there. However that would have entailed crossing the Carpathian/Tatras mountains but, with the recent snow falls that we’ve … Read more
