Ok seriously this is an amazing city... the buildings alone are steeped in history. All 3 of us were awestruck with the city and we have only been here a little over a day.
I think I underestimated the city, completely. Very easy to manuvere and a quite cheaper than Amsterdam. What Amsterdam lacked in some places, Budapest has made up the difference in a day.
We decided to take a hop on, hop off tour bus (yes it is touristy, but easy to get your bearings straight) this way we can hop off and see some sights and onto the next site. Really good idea actually, we were able to see a lot of sights today and only gets us excited for what tomorrow will bring.
I will upload some photos.. we took quite a few... keep in mind, everywhere you turn was a photo moment.
The language is a challenge for sure, we have mastered the craft of the universal sign language of getting around lol holding your crotch and jumping up and down means you have to go to the toilet lol that kind of stuff... comical really.
We plan to take a cruise at night in Budapest, hopefully on Friday, cant wait to see the buildings lit up at night.
Gonna rewind here.. when we arrived at the airport, we decided to take a taxi (21 euros) that was much better than trying to figure out how to get some where on the Metro when your a little road weary.
So when we arrived at our Apartment, they were waiting for us. Our concierge (yes, even at an apartment) was kindly waiting for us and helped us with our luggage. Very nice guy, Peter, he informed us we were to be upgraded to the Penthouse... Pimpin now lol.... We went to the 7th floor and we have a 2 level flat with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, full kitchen and washer (no dryer) Very nice.. with a huge balcony over looking Akacfcu street...
This city is what you think of when you think of Europe.. it is one of the oldest citys and is very striking.
Now we will be on to our 2nd full day in Budapest and we are thrilled.
Its is good to me right now :) and I am sure Jen and Anna feel the same way.
Hopefully by the end of the trip, Jen can figure out how to use the laundry and open the door lmao
Jo ejszakat!!!(Good night)
