Day-14, Mon, May 9, from Mosonmagyarovar to Rajka

Today’s 10.2 miles (16.2 km) brings me to my last overnight stop in Hungary, a Camino guesthouse, no less, with appropriate stamp. Tomorrow will take me to Bratislava, Slovakia, my final Camino destination. Now unlike most other lodgings, there’s almost always a restaurant close by; this evening, however, I made do with groceries for evening and morning meals, as can be seen from the picture. I also found it interesting that many cars in the residential neighborhoods now have SK (Slovakia)on their plates instead of H (Hungary). And a roadside gas station almost looked like our high-demand Costco gas stations. I’m guessing that being near the border causes folks to buy gas on the other side.

 I also photographed the ubiquitous WWI and WWII memorials, this one solemnly decorated with black tulips.

    Yes the photo of gas station looks like it could be anywhere. Your grocery items look good especially the tomatoes- at least I think that is what they are.
    Look forward to hearing about the rest of your journey.
    Buen Camino for now,
    Marla😍👣🥾
