Corfu Road Trip 2014 - Day 1

This year me (25), my father (58) and two other guys: Josef (69) and Pavel (69) - decided that we could try little bit more adventurous road trip - to Greek isle of Corfu. We met at 6 AM at local petrol station in my hometown in Czech Republic. The weather seemed that it could rain in every minute. 

Morning meeting at petrol station
The weather was quite cold and fogy but still not that bad so the journey went pretty OK. We crossed the border to Austria, we enjoyed few km of much better asphalt and continued directly to Hungary.
Entering Hungary
Our today destination was Balaton lake. Well known vacation destination during communism era. We had a nice hotel booked there - Villa Plattensee. So we arrived at 14:30 and went to our prepared rooms.

Our accommodation in Hungary (5 minutes walk from Balaton lake)
In the afternoon (after unpacking our stuff, shower etc.) we went for a short walk to Balaton lake (which was about 5 min distant) and afterwards for dinner. The restaurant was 15 minutes away. We enjoyed local fish from the lake and also Hungary wine. After some time heavy rain started and we asked the waitress if she could order a taxi for us. She said that there is no taxi so we persuaded her to take us to our hotel by herself. She agreed but she had car just for driver and one more passenger - so she enjoyed the lift to the hotel four times :-)
