Underground Fortress Tour

Mary, Peter, Sam and I went to ask Jarkof about the underground tour and he was able to contact the guide and said we could go at 1pm. As it was 10am we decided to go get some breakfast and ended up at eating at a café that is in an old train car, but we... Continue Reading →

Novi Sad part II

May 10 On account of not getting home until after 1am and my roommate being quite the creeper, I had a very late start to my day. I was also talking to the hostel owner about a guide for the underground part of the fortress as Milos had said he knew a guy. Jarkof (the owner... Continue Reading →

Victory Day!

May 9 It was a beautiful day when I woke up so I went out and got a smoothie and relaxed in the square in between St. Mary’s Church and City Hall for a while and watched the workers get ready for the concert later that day. Then I decided to go try Ananda, a... Continue Reading →

This train was like the Christmas train that rides around Redmond Town... Continue Reading →

Last day in Budapest

May 2 My last day in Budapest 😦 My first stop was the Central Market Hall which again is a lot like Pike Place Market. The bottom floor seemed to be mostly locals buying meat, cheese and vegetables. The 2nd floor was definitely the tourist section. There were souvenirs stands along most of the floor... Continue Reading →

May Day

May 1 Today is a national holiday in Hungary- International Worker’s Day. Mark told me that in celebration, there would be an air show over the Danube with Red Bull planes putting on a show and a jumbo jet flying through the famous Chain Bridge. It started at 10 and I attempted to get up... Continue Reading →
