I trained to Basel and then flew to Vienna on Thursday evening. The lovely Edit picked me up from the airport and we drove back to her home town in Győr, Hungary. I’m staying here until Monday.
There’s a massive heat wave in Hungary just at the moment. Today, we headed to Lake Balaton a couple of hours away from Győr. We left early to try and avoid the extreme heat. We didn’t succeed. It was approximately 40 degrees and the radio was reporting the water temperature at 27 degrees. Mmmmm. After spending a little while roller coasting around at an amusement park on the way we arrived at the lake. We had a chilled-out afternoon there swimming in the deliciously warm water and snoozing. Very nice.
The heat continued into the night and it remained in the high twenties.
