Time for another trip to memory lane, and this time my mind brings me back to Budapest, Hungary.
Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect. Our trip to Budapest back then was a last-minute decision, something we thought of to check out as much places as much as we can during our 9-day vacation. It was our first time in Europe, and my flight was compliments of Delta via KLM. It was my first time to make use of my miles too.
As far as I can remember, we decided to go to Budapest for an overnight stay. We took the train from Vienna, checked in the Mercure Budapest Castlehill, which was close to the train station and rushed out to make the most out of our short stay there. We crossed Vermezo Park, had a quick stop at the Hospital in the Rock Museum, and headed out to Castle District. From then on, I was probably walking around with my mouth agape, as I took in the magnificence of the historical architecture around me.
And guess what – my digicam battery died on me. i resorted to my oldschool phone camera at the time but the resolution was just not good. Yes, my friends, first full day in Europe, and the only day in Budapest, and I didn’t have a lot of photos. On a plus side, both D and I were able to spend time actually admiring what was around us.
Reminsicing now, I’d say D and I just have to go back for a proper (longer) stay in Budapest. Maybe next time we will have a chance to go to the unbeaten path and get to know Hungary more – definitely explore the countryside.
