Drinks, Eats, Just Desserts

You can read the prices on the receipt. A retired translator, Alan was intrigued by the beer company slogan on the umbrellas used at the csarda. He took his dictionary from his saddlebags to check. His best, literal guess, after 10 months of studying Hungarian, was "As the environment, so the filling." When I got to Berlin In fact, the Budapest brewery, Dreher, translates it as: "It's what's inside that truly counts." And inside Alan, a full stomach served as his just dessert. The squashed barrel did not appreciate the calorie crush. Overall, the occasionally strenuous cycling tour was penz wise and pound foolish. Despite many missed many turns and some long hauls, the senior couple always made it to its assigned accommodation. Vinociped's Gyözö transported the luggage every day. After the Balaton week, Mrs. and Mr. Wildblood spent three days on the Vistula Bend in Visegrad, Szentendre and Budapest, then six more two-wheeling around the Neusiedler/Fertö Lake separating Hungary and Austria. Alan's bicycle odometer recorded 500 kilometers during the 16 days abroad. In the end, his scales registered a three-kilo elevation.
