Friday 17th - drive to Veszprem

On Friday we did a training sprint course round our accommodation then packed up for the drive to Veszprem. The World Champs to begin on Monday!

We collected some local training maps from the World Champs Event Centre in Veszprem and then headed towards Lake Balaton to the Europa campground on the shorefront of the lake. Marquita and Rob parked up their camper in a shaded tree lined row about 20m from the water, while the other 4 of us (Viv and Dave yet to arrive) have a cabin on wheels (called a mobile home). First thing to do was to open the windows - temperature into the 30s!

The lake is shallow for ages before it deepens and is stirred up and murky with silt. People are playing a lot of ball games in the water. It is still school holidays and so there's a lot of people here enjoying their summer holidays.
