Tuesday and the sun is shining in Budapest - fantastic!!!

My day today was an easy one - no tours, no timetable, no moving, no ship and no pals either! The friends I made on the cruise are all home by now and getting ready to go back to work (did I mention there was a podiatry convention on the ship?) Those nail clippers will be getting oiled as we speak! It was a great  cruise and I did meet some lovely people. As I was on an AMA Waterways cruise there were also only 5 Aussies on the cruise. The APT cruises on the same ships are pretty much 100% aussie!

I spent most of Tuesday at the Gellert Spa - wht a treat!! There are heaps of pools - shared and single sex only. As Kate reminded me after I'd been there the old ladies don't mind it all hanging out in the women only area (aarrggghhh!!). I also trumped up for a managers massage - not quite what I thoght it was going to be. But as she was the Manager i didn't complain!

After my spa I headed in to town to get a late lunch - paprika chicken with patatoe dumplings!! Mmmmmmmm good choice Matt!!! 

Tuesday in Budapest.... what a treat!!

Now on to Wednesday.....
