Wednesday 30th September 2009 – Croatia
Today I witnessed one of the most beautiful sights I have ever been lucky enough to have seen, which may seem strange when you realise it was a cemetery, but what an incredible cemetery it is.

I set my alarm for 6:30 this morning and was up promptly, showered and dressed and out of the door without barely making a noise and waking anybody.

Slovenia and the Skocjan Caves – Day 59

Monday 28th September 2009 – Slovenia
I decided on a bit of sightseeing today round Slovenia, and also a day trip to the caves. It would be a long journey there and back, but I had a feeling it would be a good day, as exploring is what travelling is all about in my mind. Read on to find out more.

Sunday 27th September 2009 – Slovenia
Today I was off to Slovenia, and was leaving behind a place I liked very much in Slovakia. As it turns out though, today I would not be travelling alone…

Sightseeing Bratislava in Slovakia – Day 57

Saturday 26th September 2009 – Slovakia
Having already spent the large part of yesterday wandering around, seeing the sights and attractions, there wasn’t an awful lot left to see today. I had a day to use up somehow, and I managed to spend a lot of the day just aimlessly pottering about, sitting here and there, watching the world go by around me.

Sightseeing Vienna in Austria – Day 55

Thursday 24th September 2009 – Austria
It always amazes me the way some people can get into bed at 2am, and still get up at 5:30am. It always seems to be the way in hostels. Those who go to bed later, get up earlier. In the case of one guy last night, this was exactly what happened. He wasn’t quiet about it either, and made sure he yawned as loud as he could as many times as he could.

My Journey to Huttledorf, Vienna – Day 54

Wednesday 23rd September 2009 – Vienna
Another bad night sleep. Some guy even dropped all his money all over the floor during the night and spent the best part of 20 minutes picking it all up, his torch beam dancing round the room, sending periodic flashes of light towards me. More snoring, and a lot of flatulence coming from another guy on a top bunk, luckily not above me. I guess I’m getting use to this now 🙂

Dachau Concentration Camp and Oktoberfest in Munich – Day 53

Tuesday 22nd September 2009 – Germany
Another sleepless night, I guess this is just the norm. I can always catch up on sleep when I get back anyway. I had a full day ahead of me today and was a day that I was looking forward to in many ways.

First Day in Munich, Germany – Day 52

Monday 21st September 2009 – Germany
As the same people making all the noise from the previous evening woke up, around 5:30 to 6am, I couldn’t help but feel a little annoyed. Should I tell them to shut up? I certainly wanted to. There was obviously no sleep had by poor little me this night, but I had a feeling today was going to be a good day.
