Budapest Itinerary

The plan for the run out to Budapest started as a straight forward dash out and back. But after asking for advice on the Horizons Unlimited forum for places that were somewhere along my route and that I simply couldn’t miss the Stelvio Pass was pointed out to me – how could I possible go so near the pass and not take a run at it? So here’s the final plan – the itinerary that I shall not ignore, that I shall follow to the letter.

I leave Friday 22nd at lunch time for the train over to Calais. Wish me luck. If you spot somewhere I should be going – please let me know – I’d hate to miss something spectacular because I knew nothing about it.

    Just wondering a couple of things how long do you have to get there & back again?

      Hi there,

      I have taken 8 days in total – the distances are in the table just above these comments – I’ve been spending on average about 7 hours in the saddle – but as I ended up staying an extra day in Budapest I did a 14 hour day yesterday. Today was only 600km but it still took me the better part of 10 hours as I was crossing the Alps.
