Beautiful Budapest

We decided to take the opportunity to finally get back to Budapest and catch up with an old friend before we headed off to Turkey.

So two train journeys and five hours after leaving Gmunden we arrived at Budapest Keleti. We stayed in a lovely AirBnB and were the first visitors to the newly refurbished flat, which led to the owner leaving us champagne and strawberries – very nice too. The accommodation was a typical Hungarian style flat with a raised platform containing the sleeping area built above the living room.

A couple of nights of exploring the brilliant nightlife, the beer festival and fabulous restaurants (Georgian, Hungarian and Middle Eastern) meant it was not an overly relaxing weekend but good fun was had and we did manage to explore Margaret Island and finished the weekend with a Thai massage to get rid of all the toxins!

Here’s a link to some photos from our weekend away: Budapest pictures
