Heaven to wake up snugly warm in our lovely dorm and find out that Mikey had done all of the blog writing in the hostel last night so that we didn't have to spend 2/3hours of our day off doing it! Had been very organised and bought cereal for breakfast already, unfortunately what we though was milk turned out to be some kind of bizarre liquid yogurt health drink - hazards of language barrier. When we dragged ourselves out of the hostel we found it was a beautiful sunny day and wandering around town has been amazing. Now we've got our guide book we actually know what things are, and Mikey has become a real tour guide. Couldn't find our hotel Dad, but will keep looking tomorrow when we pedal off. By 2pm we were very tired of walking, and I was not sure the long trek out to the Szechenyi thermal baths was going to be worth it - SO wrong! It was incredible. They were like enormous outdoor baths, with bubbles and even a whirlpool. Amazing for tired muscles from the 68 mile sprint yesterday. We even had a beer in the poolside sunshine before taking the metro (which Neville tour guide says is the oldest line in Europe) back to the hostel. Tonight we are going to Skype home and friends and then I think Mikey is going to drag me to an Irish pub so he can watch the England game. It is his birthday tomorrow so I think its definitely ok!
