    Crazy night

    June 21 in Hungary

    Es ging morgens früh los um das Tagesziel Budapest zu erreichen, um dort Andre zu treffen.

    Es war wohl der heißeste Tag bislang. Auf dem Weg wurde öfter die Donau zum Abkühlen aufgesucht.
    Ab Esztergom wurde es landschaftlich wieder schöner mit kleinen Bergen auf beiden Seiten.

    In Budapest angekommen nahmen wir ein "Low Budget Hostel" um im Partyviertel zu nächtigen. Zuerst sollten unsere Fahrräder auf der Straße parken, erst als wir kurz vor Abschluss der Buchung einer anderen Unterkunft waren, durften wir sie ausnahmsweise im Treppenhaus im 3.OG stehen lassen.
    Wir ließen uns durch die sehr warme Sommernacht treiben, besuchten sogar eine Skybar (die erst mit Hilfe der Promoterin durch verschiedene Treppenhäuser gefunden werden konnte) und schafften es während des Gewitters gerade noch vor dem Platzregen zurück ins Hostel. Dort wunderte sich Jo warum da ein Typ in SEINEM Bett lag. Zum Glück war noch ein anderes frei. In der Nacht wurde man plötzlich von einer laut ins Zimmer kommenden pöbelnden Frau geweckt, die wenig später wieder verschwand. Eine Stunde später gegen 5 Uhr schreckte Jo erneut hoch. Diesmal tauchte die Frau in Begleitung von 2 Polizisten und 2 gutaussehenden Polizistinnen auf welche die Frau ihre Sachen packen ließ und anschließend mitnahmen. - Was für eine Nacht.
    Am nächsten morgen buchten wir erstmal ein schönes Appartement. Jo

    House of Terror

    May 6, 2017 in Hungary

    Today I went to a very unusual museum called the House of Terror. The modern museum is housed In the old headquarters of the Hungarian Secret Police (AVH). It contains exhibits related to the fascist and communist regimes in Hungary and is also a memorial to the victims of these regimes, including those detained, interrogated, tortured or killed in the building.

    There was a serious of rooms in unique styles for each period of history. The audio guide combined with video and other stylised exhibits told the history of Hungry and it's checkered past under both Nazi and Communist rule.

    A slow dramatic sinking of the lift to the basement of the building while being told how prisoners were executed in detail was enough to send shivers down the spine. Walking through the torture chambers and seeing the memorials to those who died and disappeared was very confronting. A chilling wall of photos recorded those who died many missing death dates as none knows what happened to them. A very moving experience.

    Country Number Six

    May 24 in Hungary

    We bid a fond farewell to our guide and touring companions last night at a dinner that included Slovenian foods and cultural music and dancing.

    Today our driver from Mydaytrip.com met us at our Ljubljana hotel and we were quickly and comfortably off to Budapest, a 4.5 hour drive. We can highly recommend this means of travel within Europe. Our alternative was to fly to London then to Budapest, a 6 hour trip with layover, at more than twice the cost of the car journey or try to figure out a route by train lugging our suitcases along. And they stop for tours along the way!

    We strolled the pedestrian only zone near our Budapest hotel, avoiding the hectic traffic of the city, and enjoyed Hungarian cuisine at a nearby restaurant before returning to our room. It overlooks the Danube river and has great views of historic buildings and the lovely bridges that connect Buda and Pest areas of the city.

    Day No1 in Buda & Pest

    December 16, 2017 in Hungary

    Today we set off on our first exploratory day of Budapest. I we purchased tickets for the Hop On-Hop Off Big Bus and decided to ride the bus for the full circuit to begin and then pick somewhere to go. On that round we saw the Palace, the famous Chain Bridge, Parliment House, which is the third largest parliment house in the world St Stephens Basilica and many other monuments etc. So we decided to make our first “get off” the bus at St Stevens Basilica.Read more

    Day Tour Outside Budapest

    July 9, 2016 in Hungary

    Today we had a private tour that started with the Skanzen open air museum. We then drove to the charming town of Szentendre. Its mediterranean atmosphere had cobble stone streets with narrow alleys and many unique shops. We did a private wine tasting set up in an ancient wine cellar below the water level of the Danube. And of course we bought a bottle of wine😄

    Jewish Heritage Tour of Budapest

    July 10, 2016 in Hungary

    Today we had an extensive tour of the Jewish Quarter in Budpest with an excellent guide and driver. We visited three synagogues, Holocaust Memorial, Jewish Museum, kosher stores, the Shoe Memorial, the Glass House, and even had time to stop for a tradtional Jewish sweet at a local bakery. We also visited a funky weekend farmers market that each night becomes a trendy bar area. Needless to say the day was filled with history and emotion.Read more
