    Sunrise Szechenyi

    December 30, 2019 in Hungary ⋅ ☀️ -3 °C

    A strategically early start this morning, arriving at Szechenyi baths at 7am in a bid to outrun the bulk of other tourists - it worked! The baths are the biggest in the city and very much plural - lots of different temperatures you're meant to cycle through.

    When you go in, you get changed in a little cabin with a clever locking system so it can be used from both ends - it has two doors, you walk in one end, flip a plank over to jam both, and when you're ready, walk out the other. You put your stuff in a locker then have a shower, and go explore.

    We gunned it for the two outdoor pools as we knew they'd be most likely to fill up later, and did our time in the indoor ones (full of locals, mainly old fat men) towards the end of our two hour stay.

    No pictures of inside the pools because we left our phones in the lockers but it was a new experience for sure, particularly being in a steamy 38 degree pool in - 2 outside, walking on ice to get in. Loved it.
