    Day trip on the Children's Railway

    January 2, 2020 in Hungary ⋅ ⛅ -1 °C

    Mini adventure today taking the Children's Railway (Gyermekvasút) which was built after World War II, and originally called Pioneer's Railway. It is run by children under the supervision of adult railway workers. Children do various types of jobs, from selling tickets to traffic management.
    Getting to the railway involved 2 metro lines and a bus into the hills and was then followed by a short hike through the forest, a climb to a lookout tower, an old chair lift down the hill (passing over lovely old homes and gardens still covered in ice from the morning frost) , a bus back to the city and finally a short walk home!

    April 27, 2018 in Hungary ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Sun is out again, 25 degrees after yesterday's cold wet snap.Crossed into Hungary early this morning after purchasing my vignette (road tax for visitors) 25 Euros for 10 days, I think I will suggest to the Hungarian government that they spend some of it on the roads! It is difficult enough navigating in a foreign language without having to constantly swerve about on the motorway avoiding holes! First stop was memento park on the way in, a reminder of the time when Hungary was a communist state, got to hand it to the government, they could have destroyed all evidence of the Russian art rather than display it in a park, mind you the remains of Stalin's statue(his boots) is a bit of a finger to the Ruskies. Better watch what I am saying you never know who is Lenin over your shoulder.Read more

    Café New York

    June 17, 2019 in Hungary ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Café New York is een bijzondere plek waar je iets kunt eten en drinken. Het hoort bij het hotel New York. Een prachtig gebouw van buiten en van binnen een luxueuze inrichting met plafondschilderingen en zware kroonluchters. Veel vergulde objecten. Geopend in 1894 en ontmoetingsplek van schrijvers, kunstenaars, politici en de intellectuele gemeenschap van Budapest. Na WO 2 was er van deze grandeur niets over maar in 2006 is alles in ere hersteld nadat de sportwinkel eruit ging.
    Behalve de bijzondere gebouwen, versierd met beelden kom je overal in de stad bronzen beelden tegen.
