and what about Bratislava?! jk

I also went to Vienna one night, straight after I came from the UK we went there for a tea, we had delicious Figelmuller Schnitzel, what a great welcome to my A-H motherland . I wanted to go to W also last weekend but finally I didn't go there, I might go in Ocober tho.

btw, seriously, after I came back from the UK, if I travel to ex-Habsburg countries I just found it kind of as I am still at home. Of course the difference is massive especially between Austria and Slovakia, but still these two countries are so much closer related snd have so much in common than with UK .

Sh*t. Being crushed between two trucks is one of my worst nightmares.

That's true also for beers. In the whole Andalucia they only served me Cruzcampo beer - freshwater for someone accustomed to German beers

Even though Hungary has loads of mineral waters, you can find foreign brands too, like Jana from Croatia, San Benedetto from Italy, Borsec from Romania or Römerquelle from Austria. Of course Evian is also available at some posh places

Same in Romania. Even if we have some of the best mineral springs in Europe, you can also find in supermarkets Evian, Perrier and Devin (a bulgarian brand). We also have Jana, but with some fruits aroma. For me Borsec is the best mineral water.

Evian = naive. Bottled water is also more expensive than unleaded petrol.

Tap water is the best you can get.

that's what i actually like to say, too excellent example of back to front reading but what can we do when they've made such a fame of water.
