Thursday May 1 – Day 21
Hello All -
We have regained consciousness after an amazing adventure over the last few days with our travelers here and there spread out across Central Europe…and us nestled sweetly in among the vineyards of the Wachau Valley with good friends.
Good morning all...or good evening, whatever.
Road officials are on their way to Austria...other teams on their way to Vienna and Slovakia today, and we heard Liechenstein too! (Good luck with that bridge too far...) One team is on a side heritage roots tour looking for long lost relatives. Good luck all...
Thank you again to all the folks at the Hilton Budapest Castle Hotel ...we wish every property was so warm and wonderful. You should be proud of your service. Thank you all.
Dateline: Budapest, HUNGARY - Monday April 28 – Day 18
Time…what a mental construct.
Where to begin? We are ALL here in Budapest. I just sat and listened to stories of woe while sharing a few Pilsner Urquell’s and G ‘n T’s with the lost tribe of The Global Scavenger Hunt who just arrived from Dubai--24 hours late. They are all in good spirits and humor. Good travelers know random stuff happens and you complain, moan or groan and the uncontrollable random inevitability of it, or roll with the punches. They were all true champs.
Good Morning All -
First off, everyone is well and accounted for, but we hit a snag today.
All the teams arrived at the Dubai International Airport this morning in plenty of time to take our confirmed spaces
on the flight to Istanbul. Sadly, Turkish Airline had other ideas.
Three teams were unceramoniously bumped from the flight at the gate: defending champs The Ogopogos, Heckarewee and
the Geotrekers. And so for the first time in ten events we have an airline problem.
Ahlan wa sahlan…Welcome!
The sun is setting on our final day in Dubai…
