    Szentendre

    August 19, 2020 in Hungary ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Von Budapest aus kann man super einen Tagesausflug nach Szentendre machen. Ein kleiner Ort direkt an der Donau, der in normalen Zeiten sich voll und ganz auf Tourismus eingestellt hat.
    Hier merken wir wie südlich wir inzwischen sind und genießen den sommerlichen Flair, Eiscafe und fettige Langos - typisch ungarische frittierte Teigfladen mit saurer Sahne und Käse. Kurz darauf merkten wir, dass unsere Mägen für soetwas wohl einfach nicht geschaffen sind...
    In anderen Ländern Zug zu fahren ist auch trotz Mundschutz immer wieder ein Erlebnis..

    Ach was! An Budapest erinner ich mich noch gut, aber an das Dorf überhaupt nicht mehr! 😅

    Ide sa do karantény?

    June 16 in Hungary ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Pri meste Vác, tesne pred Budapešťou sa mi splní sen. Z pobrežného húštia na nás vyrazí biela loďka s bočným nápisom Rendorseg a zabliká na nás červeným a modrým majáčikom. A ja im môžem predviesť svoje lingivistické schopnosti svojou vetičkou "Nemirtem magyarul", abo tak dajak, hlavné, že pochopili, že my nechápeme...

    Kontrola je v pohode, aj keď všetci čakáme, kedy policajti vyslovia to zázračné slovíčko COVID.
    Našťastie ich zaujímajú len štandardné doklady, nekontrolujú ani výbavu, čo je v mojom prípade obrovská kotva zaberajúca celý predný priestor.

    No a Edo asi sklamaný, lebo od vstupu do Maďarska sníva o tom, že sa nám výlet predľži v maďarskej karanténe, ale asi sme vyzerali príliš vychechtano a zdravo.

    P.S. nikto z nás nemal žiaden papier, test, potvrdenie a pod. súvisiace s Covidom

    Priťahovači zážitkov

    June 16 in Hungary ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Posádka Edovho člnu nemá WC, na rozdiel od nášho vedierka od tyčiniek, ktoré Danka aktívne využíva.
    Z tohto dôvodu musia každú chvíľu niekde stáť. A dovtedy sa chodí s pohárom po vodu... až kým Edo nechtiac pri pristávaní nechytí podvodnú hrádzu...
    Zákerný rybár sa len díval a na nič neupozornil.
    Po pristání na pláži tak s nožíkom v ruke Ňaňo brúsi narazenú vrtuľu a zázračne ju aj vybrúsi...
    No a Maja zaklínač (priťahovač) hadov zažíva deja vu zo Šíravy (kde mali užovku v lodi), keď sa na ich lodi objaví počas plavby had...
    Zas som mal ráno obavy, čo by sa už mohlo asi počas tak jednoduchej plavby stať... Ale tento náš team to je zjavne partia priťahovačov zážitkov.

    Ahojte, výletníci! Dobre vidím hada? [hi]

    Szentendre

    October 2, 2015 in Hungary ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Today was the last day of the tour, given that tomorrow we would basically be making our way back to Vienna, and for most of the band, home (but not us!)

    We drove north to Szentendre, passing at one point a number of Roman ruins which I hurriedly tried to snap from inside the coach. It was a perfect day weather wise, and a lovely day to explore yet another beautiful village on the Danube with a quaint pedestrian precinct. Again, the cobbled walkways were lined with shops designed to bring in the tourist dollars, but it was clean and quiet and a magical place to be. Rae and I started with a coffee at a cafe by the river and then explored up and down, searching for souvenirs. I was also looking for a replacement handbag, and there were plenty to choose from.

    There was an optional visit to the Pottery museum which Rae and I decided to skip, since it was a perfect day for enjoying a stroll in the sun. We met the others for lunch in the Labirintus Etterem. As the name suggests, it was a bit like a Labyrinth, and we were led upstairs to a loft/ attic where we were seated away from the other patrons. Obviously our Aussie reputation had preceded us?

    Sadly, we had to leave this beautiful place, with the next stop being Visegrad, a place of great historic and strategic importance further to the north.

    Entlang der Donau nach Szentendre

    July 12, 2017 in Hungary ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Vor vorbei an unzähligen Sonnenblumenfelder fuhren wir bis Györ und dann weiter an der Donau nach Szentendre. Es ist schon fast beängstigend wie wenig Womo- und Wohnwagenfahrern wir begegnen. Auch auf dem Campingplätzen entlang unsere Route ist nicht viel (zum Teil garnichts) los. Man sollte nicht glauben, dass Ferienzeit ist. Erst in Szentendre kurz vor den Toren von Budapest gibt es wieder mehr Tourismus.Read more

    Abendspaziergang in die Stadt.

    July 12, 2017 in Hungary ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    An der Donau entlang geht es zu Fuß in das Zentrum mit engen Kopfsteinpflastergassen. Leider haben die unzähligen Künstlergallerien bereits geschlossen. Wir finden ein idyllisches Lokal neben der Kirche. Der riesen Grillteller für 2 Personen hat super geschmeckt.Read more

    A trip back in time

    August 29, 2017 in Hungary ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Many years ago (1974, in fact) we made a brief visit with Panni, her mother and her brother Janos (now living in Rome) to the historic town of Szentendre. We recall that things were very rushed at the time and we really didn't do full justice to the place. It was time for a return visit.

    It's certainly a vey interesting place, dating back to about the 10th century. It contains numerous churches in various styles which reflect its long history - or the history of the many races which occupied the area over the centuries. There's an absolute maze of streets full of historic building, where it's very easy to get totally lost - as we well and truly proved.

    Nowadays the town caters mainly to tourists, and there are dozens of restaurants and shops selling all sorts of authentic things from fantastic cakes and marzipan to the usual T-shirts and suchlike. It still has a lot of charm and character, and we thoroughly enjoyed our leisurely wander around this historic town.

    We then drove back, had some pleasant drinks in a historic part of Buda then strolled back to our boat. We'd enjoyed our previous night's dinner so much that we decided to go back there. It may have been hard for us to find an authentic Hungarian restaurant, but it's going to be a whole lot harder back home in Brisbane, so we wanted to make the most of this opportunity on our last night here. We weren't disappointed apart, that is, from the fact that both of us were too full to indulge in any of the deliciously unhealthy desserts.
