Budapest (finally)May 26, 2016 in Hungary ⋅ 🌙 19 °C
A pleasant ride along the Danube into Obuda and the outskirts of Budapest. Plenty to observe and with no hurry.
Centrally in Budapest, cycling has been carefully planned and cycle paths clearly marked. Once away from the riverside it's a bit of an add-on and there is too much traffic and too many pedestrians to make cycling relaxing.
After the minimum of sightseeing I took the train to Ferihegy airport, now defunct following the collapse of Malév, the national airline. (The floor of the old fashioned carriage was 5' above platform level). My Cicerone guide however gave clear and accurate instructions on how to get to the new terminal without using the motorway which appears to be the only road serving it.
Following the recce I found a Pension in Vesces, just 20 minutes from the airport.
Looking forward to my return flight to sunny Yorkshire tomorrow!Read more
