Another town is here. New people. Different atmosphere. Here comes Belgrade. I enjoy the stop here, as well as doing some thinking and relaxing. I’ve done more than 50 days of travelling from Prague, 160 km against the stream, 120 km on foot. I have many hundreds of kilometres of Danube behind me.

I’m lying in a hammock on a hostel’s terrace in the centre of Budapest. I’m swinging a little and absorbing the surroundings. There is some fluff flying around from trees nearby. I can clearly feel the summer is coming. From the terrace I can see Danube and some big boats filled with tourists.

I am putting the paddle into water and going ahead. Along my side I have another six boats and it‘s nice. Some also accompany me walking on shore.
