Tesco store in Mosonmagyarovar Hungary
There’s no escaping Tesco

Sun 13. Mosonmagyarovar to Szekesfehervar 79 miles. Gone are the new Audi’s and Bmw’s of the last two countries replaced with much older Fiats and Opel’s and much quieter roads. Very frosty first thing and took quite a while before the sun burned it off, very flat today and no wind. Made good progress today, decided to stop at the side of the road for a bite to eat around midday, I’d just finished the roll I’d managed to get at breakfast this morning, when an old Vauxhall pulled up with 3 men in it, not feeling too easy about the situation I started to get ready to move. One of the men jumped out and rushed towards me and was making gestures to me that he wanted money and was offering me a ring! I firmly said no and packed my bike up but he wouldn’t give up, I just ignored him the best I could, I think his mates got fed up and called him to the car, as they drove off I peddled in the opposite direction luckily, a bit of a worrying situation, but it was all ok in the end. Don’t suppose it will be the last time as much as I’d to think so!
