Budapest!

Wow! Where to start?? We left Timisoara 2 days ago, after a tearful goodbye at the train station. After a bit of a wait, because the train was late, we finally made it on board into an almost empty 1st class compartment. That 30 minute late start soon turned into an hour after waiting at borders etc, but we finally made it to Budapest. This is the first time that we have had any delays with trains so its the exception rather than the rule. We jumped in a taxi and after a bit of confusion, our very helpful driver found the building and we were met by the owner and checked into our amazing little studio apartment. Its fabulous!!!Then it was off to hit the streets and spend the whole afternoon and evening just walking the banks of the Danube, across the chain bridge, and up to Fishermans bastion and a walk around the castle at the top. The next day we headed out again for yet more walking, as well as cycling, and explored yet more of this amazing city! More bridges to cross, more streets and buildings to explore and we just soaked in the sights and sounds of both Buda and Pest. The city looks just as amazing at night as it does during the day. Today we are off to take the Metro, the oldest underground in Europe, and head to city park, where we aim to soak our muscles in a thermal pool and once again be amazed by this place. If you are ever in Europe, Budapest is a 'Must See!'
