The Arsenal Vienna
The Arsenal Vienna

Sat 12. Vienna to Mosonmagyarovar, Hungary 62 miles. Well the hotel last night was a bit of a joke, considering it was trying to look all international and posh, although the price didn’t match that appearance. After being told that the restaurant was open till 9 and the bar till 10.45 I was a bit shocked when at 8.35 the bar was closing and also the restaurant due to the person who was meant to be working never turned up! The girl who was working just said she was closing up as she’d been there since 8 this morning, was that my fault, I nearly said that I’d rode for 10 hours and done 130 km but I didn’t I just ordered a few beers before she left! Breakfast was the same it was supposed to be at 6.30 but again no staff, there was loads of German women waiting also and they weren’t happy! Only realised last night that the city that I was staying in was Vienna, thought the incompetent girl on reception gave me a map for the wrong city as I was staying in Wien! The wind died down this afternoon so it was a pleasant ride into Hungary, didn’t realise that they don’t use the euro so stopped a bit earlier today to get some local money, shouldn’t need much as I think i’ll only be here for a couple of days. The other shock after entering Hungary was Tesco’s are here, should have brought my club card! The arsenal in Vienna, now a museum.
