    Budapest Day 2

    July 2, 2016 in Hungary

    Today we discovered more of Budapest's treasures.

    We crossed the Liberty Bridge and our 1st stop was the Central Market Hall. A large market hall completed in 1896 housing a huge variety of stalls on 3 levels. Most of the stalls are on the ground floor and produce includes meat, pastries, cheeses, sweets, spices and spirits.

    Next stop was the St Stephen's Basilica and the Dohāny Street Synagogue. Both beautiful buildings.

    A walk around Hero's Square and then back across the Chain Bridge - the 1st permanent and oldest bridge in Budapest, opened in 1849.

    We had to check out the famous Lion statues. Apparently the story goes that when the Lion Statues were completed and unveiled, somebody shouted "but they don't have tongues! ". At which stage the sculptor threw himself off the bridge and into the river.

    After today's excursion, I think we can safely say that we have seen all the noteworthy sights in Budapest - now for Vienna 😊

    Esztergom to Budapest - 82.2km

    June 30, 2016 in Hungary

    So... The final day of cycling arrived and was supposed to be a fairly short easy day. However, it turned into a cycle ALL way to Budapest. In total we've done about 610km in the 12 days. Not too bad for a non-cyclist I think 😊. I even have the cyclist "Hand Tan" 😂

    We were supposed to take the ferry at 40km, but when we got to the pickup at 13h00 we were told the ferry was only coming at 17h00... So we carried on going 😓😓😓

    We got into Budapest at 15h30, long before the ferry was even due to arrive at the pick up point 😊

    Tonight we've earned our sleep. Tomorrow we'll be sitting on the Hop on Hop off bus, no more peddling for us 😃

    Budapest

    July 1, 2016 in Hungary

    To the delight of my derrier, we took the Hop On Hop Off Bus today 😊

    Budapest is a very pretty city with loads of old buildings and friendly people. The city is made up of 2 parts Buda and Pest.

    Many of the old buildings were damaged and all the bridges over the Danube were destroyed by the Germans between December 1944 and February 1945. However, most of the old monumental structures have been restored.

    The Parliament Building is impressive to say the least. It took 17 years to build, comprises 40 million bricks, half a million precious stones and 40kg of gold. 20km of stairs make working there hard work 😊. It is 96m high (the same height as St Stephen's Basilica), 268m long and 123m wide. The number 96 refers to the nation's millennium, 1896, and the conquest of the later Kingdom of Hungary in 896!

    The Matthias Church, situated in front of the Fisherman's Bastion in the heart of Buda's Castle District. is a beautiful Roman Catholic which was originally built in 1015.

    Andiamo!

    July 6, 2017 in Hungary

    Végre megyünk nyaralni!!! El sem hiszem.
    Tegnap este meg egy kis kerti party, szóval picit fáradt a reggel, szerencsére Marcus tartja a frontot, nagyon draga, pakol és szendvicseket is ő gyárt.
    Es ezúttal én vagyok az első, aki már az M1/M7 kivezetőn nekiesik a finom falatoknak. :) Na ez már tényleg szabi!
