Despite having to bike 100km I slept in a bit and spent some time with Cat and the girls before heading South East to Komarno at the border of Hungary.

 It was a windy day but was sunny and the entire ride was pretty much flat. Just what I needed. It was close to 30 degrees so I had to adjust to the heat but managed alright.  My back was still stiff and it took over 20km into the ride before I could properly bend and ride normal. Not too much interesting on this leg - other than the ever popular destination of "Horny Bar" - I wonder if people take pictures of the town sign as much as they do for Dildo Newfoundland?

Just when I thought I would have a rain free day the minute I arrived at the Hotel it started to rain. It has only been 12 days in a row. Komarno is a twin city with the Hungarian Komarom and both are pretty quite places. 

I was in a slow mode and just was taking care of my back. I went for a walk around. there was not much happening so I decided to cross the bridge into Hungary on foot. Despite the Hungarian side looking like a throw-back to the old Communist days the first thing over the border was a 24 hour Tesco. I did see what appeared to be a very surgically enhanced porn star at tesco in a very skimpy outfit. All she bought was one very large watermelon. Kind of a weird site to say the least as she carried it out to her Mercedes and drove over the border to Slovakia.

It was an early night and  I tried to get a decent night sleep.
