Austria / Hungary on Eastern Holiday

The second trip with the Jeep took place on Easter Weekend 2014.
From Vienna to Neusiedler See, a common recreational spot for the Vienesse.
I couldn’t resist to cross the border to Hungary, visit the famous Esterhazy castle.

Schloss Esterházy (Fertőd)

The spot where the ‘Pan-European Picknick’ took place in 1989, an event where the borders between eastern and western Europe were torn down.

The area around Neusiedler lake is a UNESCO site with quite some wildlife like storks.

Finally: new JKU

Right after I went to the dealer to finally get my new Jeep with just 36 kilometers, I drove it to Vienna. As the first 500 kilometers are supposed as break-in, it took about 5,5 hours from Munich and arrival was just before midnight.
That was the fastest pickup of a new car for me, it felt like I went there and just drove away without further ado.

Jeep Wrangler JKU 2014 Polar Edition

After years of thinking (actually I thought about a Wrangler even when buying the Mercedes years ago), finally moved a step up and got a new Jeep Wrangler JKU 2014 Polar Edition made for offroad. However, my goal is to use it for travelling around Europe.
As public transport is quite excellent around here, it’s not a daily drive.
