Long Weekend in Budapest

It was a bumpy landing…

We were welcomed with champagne drinks at the Fishermen’s Bastion. There was a violinist who added style in the air. Dinner was then served at the Budavari Fortuna Restaurant.

Friday was a whole day meeting. In the evening, we discovered Budapest by cruise. It has splendid nocturnal views.

The following day, we climbed the Buda Hills and admired the panoramic view of the city. Buda and Pest separated by the River Danube…

The day ended showery. The showers came just right after we watched England lost against Portugal in the Square near Vaci Utca. (This spoiled my weekend a bit, if only…)

Sunday (our last day). We enjoyed the thermal spa, swimming pool and an hour of relaxing massage at the Gellert Baths.

    nice pictures. My aunt told me it was nice there in Budapest since she was there on a business trip a couple of months ago. It’s also cheap there as well as far as I’ve heard

    JAMIE: Travelling is good when you are not working! I can’t really complain sa lahat ng extra benefits of being a research nurse. But sometimes, kakapagod rin. Kasi with research, there’s no such thing as ‘hand-over’. Whatever you’ve left before yo go, yun din ang bablikan mo.

    TIN: Hi Tin, thanks. I really enjoyed Budapest, especially the baths and views!

    PAO: Guess what, naalala kita when I went to the baths! Ganda kasi nung kwento mo dati…wink!
