In my last post, I was spending the first night in Vienna. The breakfast at Hotel Bork the next morning was very good and definitely provided a very bright start to our journey. We tucked in what we could before we went on our tour in the coach which took us to Budapest, the capital of Hungary. Along the way we saw a number of wind turbines such as the ones below.
Our first stop was at the Citadel Hill where we had a panoramic view of Budapest.
The Danube River divides the city into two, on the left is Buda
and on the right is Pest.
After this, we had some free time for shopping in the downtown city area before we went for our dinner. Of course it was Hungarian Goulash, complete with gypsy music.
At last we checked into our hotel (Hotel Europa) which was a bit out of town and we all had a really good night's rest after a very hectic first day where we did Budapest in one day! Whew.
