World: Piran

In May 2011 I went on a roadtrip with a couple of friends. Our destination was Trieste, Italy but we spent one day in Piran, Slovenia. Piran is a charming little city – magical, really. We walked around town, through tiny alleys and along the boardwalk. We ate gorgeous food and had a very intense water fight. I truly have only fond memories of this trip.

We took our car from Vienna to Trieste (had to pay for parking in Trieste, but only around 3€/day). We divided petrol cost through four so each of us only had to pay around 20€. We stayed in a small hostel near the city center – meals not included.
We made a day trip to Piran with a short stop at Hrastovlje, a small town in Slovenia with a cute medieval church. We hiked around the hills there for a while and bought a bottle of wine from the church. Parking in Piran was a bit of a challenge but we managed to find a parking lot not too far off.

Budapest, May 2012.
Such a stunning city. Such fond memories.

Bus connection: Vienna-Budapest: return ticket around 17€ with Eurolines (ca. 3h drive) – cheaper when booked via. the hungarian bus company.
Hostel: cheaper when sharing a 3+ bedroom (I was traveling with 4 friends so we took a room for five and ended up getting a really good price).
