Adventures in Budapest
The last destination of our journey was Budapest, Hungary. It is a beautiful city, divided into Buda and Pest by the ultra-majestic river Danube. The river means Budapest is home to some of the most impressive bridges we've ever seen, and we're from the City of Bridges!
Now, after four months on the run, we're all getting a little tired. So "Colors Hostel" was definitely the best place we could have ended up! This hostel feels like we're hanging out in some very cool people's apartment. It's tiny, cosy, and they leave breakfast out til noon. And the workers will stay up all night talking with you when you can't sleep. Another example of our tiredness can be seen in some of the restaurants we've chosen. Rather than go for the risky goulashes or stews, we've sampled such fine Hungarian cuisine as "Subway" and "Pizza Hut." You just know what you're going to get, you know? We've also made a couple visits to the Budapest movie theater. They show movies in English!
Don't worry though, we've still soaked in the sights this city has to offer, and have had a wonderful time exploring. Some of the things weve seen are:
-Buda Castle, a huge, ancient buliding looking over the river. The view from the top of the castle was amazing, and the statues were... creepy, but still pretty nice.
-Hungarian thermal baths. There are natural springs running all over under this town, and we took advantage of them with a nice, long soak.
-Caves! These same springs have carved a huge network of caves around Budapest, and we took a 3 hour long spelunking tour. One of the most fascinating, challenging things we've done! Not for claustrophobics.
Now we're off to Paris for the weekend (no big deal or anything), and catching our flight back to Canada. Thanks everyone for following our travels, and for all your support while we've been away. We have had the time of our lives, and can't wait to see all the lovely people at home.
