Roadtrip – London 2 Jammu

Day 13: Driving from Austria to Hungry via Slovakia


Vienna Palace, Vienna

Linz is a beautiful place, neat and clean as rest of Austria is! We woke up fully charged, plan was to reach Budapest via Bratislava. But before that there was no way we were going to give Vienna a miss. We finished our breakfast, got ready, checked directions for Schonbrunn palace, Vienna and left.

Vienna seemed quite calm and running at a slow pace, maybe we did not visit the downtown that’s why it seemed like it! Normally, you would like to spend 2-3 days when you are in Vienna but we just had an afternoon and it was well spent… [Read More]


Day 14: Hungary to Croatia via Slovenia


Maribor Town Market, Slovenia

We woke up to another bright beautiful day, this time it was Budapest. After realizing how cheap it was to have a good time in Budapest, we decided to get our bones the treatment they deserve. You guessed it, massage it was :-)

Aarti found a place nearby our hotel, Queen’s Court Hotel & Residence and we were excited. For an hour of massage each, you will be shocked to know how much we paid, the total came out to be GBP 6.00, and we tipped her another GBP 2.00… [Read More]

    Hi Shoeb,

    It would actually depend on which country/ies you wish to enter?
    1. Many countries accept “Carnet-De-Passage”, it is a visa kinda document for vehicles.
    2. China has its own mechanism and charges heavy duty on vehicles entering China, they wont even recognize international license.
    3. You are free to cross borders within Europe provided you have valid motor insurance.

    Let us know if you have any other questions 🙂
