    St Mattias and feet eating fish

    November 14 in Hungary

    Today we walked around Buda, the other side of the Danube. Across the iconic chain bridge, conned into a “4 kilo meter” ride up the hill - it was only a few hundred meters and would have been an easy walk - but hey, everyone needs to make a quid.

    St Matthias church which is fabulous - an interesting mix of east and west - great views from the fisherman’s walls, delicious lunch of langos (fried hot bread with toppings of sour cream, cheese, sausage and vegetables), then the palace and remains of the castle. Down the hill and across to Pest, where I had promised myself a fish pedicure. Loved it! Not long enough. An evening at the Operetta, in a box, with bubbly and snacks at interval. Goulash soup for supper, followed by a hot mulled wine (courtesy of our hotel) then bed.

    Altogether a great day.

    A very happy 50th anniversary

    August 26, 2017 in Hungary

    We were up bright and early, ate a leisurely breakfast, wished each other a happy wedding anniversary and we were off, exploring. So much to see so little time. Our phone had buzzed us with a warning of heatwave conditions, but we wanted to see as much of Budapest as possible. We wandered along this (the Buda) side of the Danube then crossed to the Pest side via the historic Chain Bridge. We then spent a lot of time exploring the Parliament Square and surroundings, with Brian concentrating on trying to get the perfect photo. As well as we travellers, all of the most popular places are filled with tourists whose only interest is in taking selfies, and who invariably get in the way when one is trying to take advantage of that Kodak momernt. As with our 2014 trip, Brian is going to have to Photoshop out all the extraneous tourists, parked cars, overflowing rubbish bins and so on.

    By the time reached our hotel in the mid-afternoon, we were footsore and hot, but we'd thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
    Brian has two second cousins in Budapest whom he had never met, but who are close to his cousin Panni. One of them, Zsuzsi (Susie) had invited us over to her place for afternoon tea. We arrived there late afternoon, and met Zsuzsi, her husband Feri and son Adam. We were made most welcome. They live in a very old apartment building, but have renovated their own apartment, which is now very modern and comfortable.

    We spoke for several hours, much of it about family history, but also about Hungarianhttp://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/middle-east/jordan/articles/Jordan-waives-visa-fee-in-attempt-to-lure-tourists/ life generally under the Germans then the Russians and then today's regime. Very interesting.

    Panni dropped us off at her place and we then wandered back towards our hotel. After the big afternoon tea neither of us was terribly hungry, but we felt that we should at least have an anniversary meal and bottle of wine. The restaurant we chose turned out to be quite good, but neither of us was able to do justice to the giant-sized portions of traditional Hungarian dishes which we'd ordered. We did however manage to finish off a celebratory bottle of beautiful Hungarian red.

    By that time we were exhausted and well and truly ready to hit the sack.

    Abendliches Budapest

    November 1 in Hungary

    Am Abend fuhren wir mit der Tram zur Margarethen Brücke. Von dort aus hat man nicht nur, mal wieder, einen wunderschönen Blick auf Budapests Highlights, sondern man gelangt auch auf die gleichnamige Insel. Nach einem kurzen Bummel über die Insel, ließen wir den Abend mit Cocktails ausklingen.🍹

    Ile Marguerite

    September 18 in Hungary

    Petite promenade dans l'île Marguerite, au nord du centre ville.

    Scéance cartes postales sous les arbres.

    Un petit spectacle de jeux d'eaux en musique dans la fontaine devant nous nous ravit.

    Depuis le pont Marguerite, une jolie vue de Pest et Buda au couché du soleil.
