Hey,

We are in Hungry at the moment, happy Easter to everyone back home, I am eating chocolate right now. It's Slovakian chocolate though, so it has a bit of a funny taste. We really like it in Budapest so we decided to extend out stay for another 2 nights and catch a later boat to Greece...So much to see and do.

Budapest was the most beautiful city, 4 night was not enough to scratch the surface. We were luck to have incredible weather, it only rained one afternoon for about 30 min. There is an incredible amount of culture and history here.

We had an interest experience as soon as we arrived into our Hostel, first they had mucked up the booking, thinking it was 1 person for 2 night and not 2 people for 1 night. Consequently we ended up at our own private house in the loft with just 5 other people. It was fitted out with really cool furniture, it was great! No hot water tho, which sucked... But they felt bad so they said try some Hungarian alcohol, and Ami and I both downed some shot of this incredible strong alcohol. Seconds after this Ami was reading a brochure about caving in the hills above Budapest, and the lady at the hostel said, do you want to do? it leaving in 5 minutes but sometimes they wait. She made a call and we were off and running through the street of Budapest to meet the tour group. We really had no idea where we were going as consequently got lost, not too sure if that was due to the shots. Eventually we figured out were to go and after running 2km thought the city barely 1 hour after being there we were on a caving tour...Probably the best snap decision we have made this trip.

There was a whole bunch of backpackers on the tour as well, we ended up getting on a bus all over town and arriving at the site we put on these incredibly tight fitting and ridiculously funny outfits with which we were going caving in. There was about 20 people on the tour and we were split into 2 group with the 2 guide..Our group was of the opinion that we were the best group...also was filled with the youngest group of people....more to write will finish another time..
