Talking 12-hour Rule Compliance

Posted within 2 hours. This Foto taken in front of the Holiday Inn on the Leopoldstraße. FYI, the hotel is being completely renovated - the new Central Tower opens 1. September, with renovations to be complete by end of February.

Leaving for Budapest now

Thanks. It's a beautiful morning here in Budapest.

We drove ca. 700 km yesterday from München to Budapest.

Unfortunately, the satnav DVD does not cover Hungary but fortunately I had had to learn some basic Hungarian in order to complete my dissertation so I was able to communicate somewhat.

More to come.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn (North Tower) last month - glad to hear about the renovation (I was not impressed with this hotel).

Hey, J - you are NOT supposed to park right there
