Novi Sad

May 6 I asked the hostel receptionist for a recommendation for some lunch/dinner and she recommended a local place that she said was good and inexpensive. Of course since it was like 4pm I was the only one in there and the waiter didn't exactly seem happy to have to work. Since I planned for this... Continue Reading →

Budapest – Novi Sad

May 6 I’m off to Novi Sad, Serbia today! I got to the train station around 7:35 (my hostel was less than a 5-minute walk to the train station) and the reader board said platform 12 so I headed there just to check and the reader board in front of the train also said it... Continue Reading →

Balatonfüred and back to Budapest

May 4 Turns out, there’s not a whole lot to do in Balatonfüred in the off- season. Aka now. After some research the night before, I found a little train that goes through the city with history and commentary on what you’re seeing. This train was like the Christmas train that rides around Redmond Town... Continue Reading →

Train to Balatonfüred

May 3 Today is my train trip to Balatonfüred! I got up and finished packing, got dressed and grabbed breakfast at the hostel then headed off for the train station. I took the metro to the station and was there quite early, but after almost missing my bus in Bratislava, I decided being super early... 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 →

Touring Budapest

April 29 I decided to go on a walking tour today, as Budapest is a huge city and it felt overwhelming trying to figure out what to see on my own. I figured a walking tour would at least help me get oriented with the city. My guide was named Regi and she was great!... Continue Reading →

A slow start

  April 28 On account of my raging until 4am on Wednesday, I slept until about noon on Thursday. My room at the hostel doesn't have an exterior window, the windows we have look at a covered courtyard that is part of a bar/club so it's pretty dark in my room even during the middle...

Arriving in Budapest

April 27 I bought a bus ticket from Bratislava to Budapest for Wednesday morning at 11:15. My hostel had told me the bus station was about 10 minutes walk away so I left around 10:50 thinking this would be enough time. At 11:11 I still hadn't found the bus station! I had to ask a...

Last Day in Bratislava!

I had the room entirely to myself on Monday night, which was a little creepy, but mainly really nice. I ended up sleeping in until almost 1pm! I guess all of these 20,000+ steps days are getting to me 😉 I quickly got ready and went to Funki Punki, a creperie/bar that I had found... Continue Reading →
