Buda Baby

As a much needed leave from Vienna, a few of us went to Budapest for a day. It was truly beautiful in so many ways and had some of the nicest views I’ve seen so far. Since we had such a short time there we made sure we booked a tour that showed us the most important things Budapest had to offer. However, finding the pick up point for the tour was quite an ordeal. Long story short, we got on the wrong tour bus and our actual tour company sent a VIP car to pick us up from where we were and bring us to the right place. Here’s a little video to show a snippet of that interesting ride.

On the tour we learned that Budapest is separated by the River Danube into two parts: Buda and Pest. Makes sense. While traveling through the different areas we saw Parliament, beautiful views from  Fisherman’s Bastion, and even climbed the Millenary Monument. The weather there was beautiful, also adding to how much we enjoyed the experience. Still, the lack of the English language there was confusing. It's pretty hard to travel around places where station names are 18 letter words separated by those little smiled face u's, such a Kettenbr├╝ckengasse on the Austrian Metro.
