    Hungary Trip in June

    Well, I made my second visit to Farm Lator and recently returned on 21st June. Graham, Sam and I received the usual warm welcome and advice from Rob de Jong and enjoyed a butterfly tour led by Rob. No soaking this time as the weather was dry and hot...very hot, although a little cooler than...

I'm not usually one for returning to places as there are such a wide option of areas to visit, but this booking reflects how much I enjoyed the previous stay at Farm Lator and Hungary in general.

    Hungary Trip in June

    I had been thinking of joining a birding/butterfly tour to Hungry this year, but to be honest I'm loathe to pay the prices asked by the tour company I had looked at, and have decided to make the trip privately with a friend. I guess we will see less, but for less than half the price I am...
