Budapest, Hungary

Going to Hungary from Slovakia was such an interesting transition. First of all we knew we were in trouble when we couldn't even order water when we stopped for lunch. We kept looking at Rob to translate for us as he had been the whole trip; and he had to keep reminding us he didn't speak Hungarian. We found our apartment easily (which was gorgeous) and then set out to explore the city.

i like this picture because you can see the distinction between Buda and Pest.
Buda is on the left with all of the hills and Pest is on the right

    1. Yes! I didn't know they were technically two different cities either until we got there. All I know is Buda is the hilly side and Pest is very flat. It was a really cool city, I was pleasantly surprised!
