Auf Wiedersehen Deutschland

As the saying goes, “All good things must come to an end” and so it is with our European adventure. What started off as a two year “Schnuppertour” (roughly translated as a trial tour or taster) ended up as a three and a half year experience of a lifetime – many friends made & more

Bratislava By Bus
