Budapest & Hungary - Lake Balaton & Southern Transdanubia

Lake Balaton is not only a happy, sunny expanse of opaque tourmaline-coloured water in which to play – step beyond its beaches and you’ll encounter vine-filled forested hills, a national park and a wild peninsula, nearly cutting the lake in half.

- wander the wild peninsula of Tihany, poking around in the Abbey Church and sipping a home-brewed beer in Hungary’s most picture-perfect lakeside village

- sail, paddleboard, swim and cycle in the Lake Balaton capital of Balatonfüred, then hit lakeside restaurants and bars by night

- check out the excellent museums, craft beer bars and coffee shops of Pécs, marvelling at the greenish- and goldish-hued ceramics at the famous porcelain factory.

Coverage includes: Lake Balaton Region, Balatonfüred, Tihany, Keszt-hely, Southern Transdanubia, Pécs, Mohács.

About the Authors

Simon Raven and Chris Raven were born in the United Kingdom. ‘Living the Linger’ was first published in 2005, and follows the brothers on a journey of lost love and search for the truth as they traverse Interstate 15 across backcountry USA. Simon and Chris became established as overland travel writers a year later with the publication of ‘Driving the Trans-Siberian’ in 2006 and ‘Carnival Express’ in 2007. The travel writing duo have since driven full circle around the Black Sea, traversed the Trans-oceanic highway from the Pacific to the Atlantic coast of South America and in 2007 travelled the road to Damascus. In addition to co-writing four travel books, they have documented and photographed multiple off the beaten track destinations across the globe including China’s deep south, tribal India and the Balkan peninsula.

Simon and Chris have been noted by Lonely Planet for their talent to portray an “accurate view of what to expect”.
