    Family hotel hungary

    August 11 in Hungary

    Drove 10 hours today in the van made it to 20 miles from Romania border we had elected to not drive at night so we rounded up a room for the night. Just acquiring this van was interesting no normal rental company (hertz budget enterprise) would allow u to cross border into Romania somehow we found this thing from friend of friend from another town , it showed up last night at ten o’clock with no diesel and missing oil cap. We struck out at 8am and at 8:45 the owner called and told us to pull over he was coming with oil cap we stopped and he showed up in panic with oil cap( he didn’t realize good country boys like us had already made a cap out of duct tape) he finally let us go after a bit. Tough driving on these roads here. On to Romania in morning. KFC at fuel stations .Read more

    Budapest II

    August 6 in Hungary

    Nach dem Frühstück sind wir direkt zur Sankt-Stephans-Basilika gefahren und anschließend über die Kettenbrücke zur Seilbahn! Wir sind auf den Berg in Buda gefahren um uns zuerst die Fisherman’s Bastille und die Matthiaskirche anzusehen und daraufhin zum Burgpalast, von wo aus man wieder einen wunderschönen Blick über Pest hatte!📷 Zum Mittagessen sind wir in den Caravan Food Market gefahren und hatten Burger, Burrito, Langos und Eistee🥤 Den Rest des Tages verbrachten wir in der Stadt zum Shoppen. Nach dem Abendessen, bei dem wir ungarische Gulaschsuppe hatten, gingen wir auf die Freedom Bridge, auf der jeden Abend gefeiert wird!Read more

    Budapest

    August 19, 2017 in Hungary

    Budapest is celebrating its national holiday tomorrow, Sunday 20 August, but the festivities began today. Streets and bridges are closed to traffic and there are food and drink stalls as far as the eye can see along the river and music to be heard all over the city. 20 August is the greatest national holiday for Hungarians. It commemorates the foundation of the Hungarian state. Also called St. Stephen's Day, remembering Stephen I, the first king of Hungary and founder of the Kingdom of Hungary, who was canonized on August 20th, 1083 by Pope Gregory VII.
    Unfortunately, as we leave Budapest tomorrow, we won't be around to see the official celebrations or the fireworks but it will be big if the preparations we see today are an indication.
    We had a great time being a part of it today.

Diese erinnert sehr an die Victoria Markets in Melbourne🌶🧀🥩 Danach ging’s über die Gellertbrücke vorbei am Gellertbad und den Gellertberg bei 36 Grad hinauf!🧗🏻‍♀️ Oben angekommen hatten wir einen wunderschönen Blick über ganz Budapest! Danach ging’s wieder runter und zur Eisdiele ‚Levendula‘🍦 Um 7 hatten wir dann einen Tisch reserviert im ‚For Sale Pub‘ und hatten typisch ungarisches Essen!

    Budapest

    August 18, 2017 in Hungary

    Buda Castle District - Castle Hill is a kilometre-long limestone plateau towering 170m above the Danube. It contains some of Budapest’s most important medieval monuments and museums, and is a Unesco World Heritage Site. Below it is a 28km-long network of caves formed by thermal springs. The walled area consists of two distinct parts: the Old Town, where commoners once lived, and the Royal Palace, the original site of the castle built by Béla IV in the 13th century and reserved for the nobility.
    Trinity square is the main part of the Old Town. In the centre of the square is the Trinity Column, commemorating the end of the plague epidemic, and the Matthias Church.
    Fisherman’s Bastion is a unique viewing terrace said to be named after the guild of fishermen who supposedly defended the area from invaders during the Middle Ages.

    Autumn begins

    September 24, 2017 in Hungary

    Slovakia has been a thoroughly wet experience but at least the wind was on our side and pushed us to more than 100km one day. We were a bit surprised how fast we got to Hungary, but the country greeted us with sunshine on a beautiful section of the Danube. After two great days in Budapest we hit the road again and go South now - pictures of the 'Pearl of the Danube' will follow.
