Relaxing in Budapest

German holidays are great, as long as you can avoid the traffic. Leaving at 7am from Munich we missed most of it and made it to Budapest in the early afternoon. Our greeter was an enthusiastic howler in need of a toenail trim:

Budapest Doggie

Late lunch at the hotel restaurant. This fantastic dish of homemade smoked salmon and quail eggs was six euro. (The pumpkin soup was also up there with the best I’ve ever had, for 2.50).

After wandering around the beautiful castle above the city at sunset…

Budapest Cathedral

…we had a coffee and enjoyed this great night view! I think this is officially the best view I ever had from a coffee shop. It was definitely worth the pricey cuppa. (Hungarian expensive = Munich standard price!).

Budapest Night View

I’m already looking forward to the next 2 days of sightseeing!

Budapest - Castle at Night

Happy Easter. Just to cover my bases, I’ll be pouring one out for JC… probably a real Czech Budweiser 😉

  1. Hi Dave, it seems you will have a good time in Budapest. I stay at home. Tomorrow we expect the visit of my mother and my sister. I’m responsible for the dessert and the cake. That means I have to get up early.

    Happy Easter and enjoy your time in Budapest.

    Cheers,
    Michael

  2. Hi Michael, nice to hear from you! I hope you have a great Easter with your family. Eigentlich klingt Kuchen sehr lecker (trotz früh aufstehen), heute muss ich etwas Ungarisches Kuchen probieren! :-)

    Cheers,
    Dave
