On the morning of my departure for Gyõr, Hungary, the radio announced that there was a heat alarm and the temperature was expected to be in the high 30s. Hallelujah. I am one of the rare species who attracts heat alarms. When I travelled to Scandinavia they timed their once-a-100-years heat alarm for that occasion.

My train arrived on the dot at 8.35am in Gyõr. The Hotel Rába is only five minutes’ walk from the station. It is a large, efficient, retro hotel, 110 years old and with an ideal location. My room faced the old town and was very nicely furnished, perfectly air-conditioned and quiet. Who could ask for more? The Rába has a small wellness section and a Belgian restaurant, which sounded very promising, so I made my reservation for an early dinner.

I went out ASAP because it was getting warmer by the minute and I wanted to return by 1pm to escape the afternoon heat.
