Our bees have been working hard this year... and now we've got some honey to show for it. Because our garden has a huge diversity of plants, our bees make particularly tasty, organic honey! This is a lovely treat for anyone and makes a nice Christmas present. Jars are on sale in the Cafe for £7.50.

After quitting my job in investment banking in ’06, I studied for Herbal Medicine for four years at the University of East London. Since qualifying as a herbalist with a BSc (Hons) in 2011, I’ve built up a large dispensary, consisting mainly of tinctures and dried herbs, which I source wherever possible from organic-certified suppliers.

Friday 26th July
Mosonmagyaróvár- Budapest: Distance: 175km
So we made it! We have spent a couple of days partying in Ozd, where Zoltan is from. I am now back in Budapest for the night and taking the opportunity to finish off the blog before I fly home tomorrow.
Here's the story of our last day.
We woke up to rain, the first of the trip. It was only drizzling really but it was a welcome relief to the heat of the previous days.

Tuesday 23rd July
Linz – Krems: Distance: 170km
After the disastrous day we had yesterday we treated ourselves to a luxurious lie in until 7am this morning. I had to shoot off back to Linz to get my wonky wheel fixed whilst Zoltan took the time to chill a bit and chat with an Australian family who had been cycling for nine months with four kids. The Father was carrying three kids and packs weighing over 150kg, putting our own trip into perspective. Respect!
