We arrived in Budapest with no issues on Sunday morning from Vienna. It was a very smooth and relaxing train ride (about 3 hrs)
When we arrived at the Budapest train station, the ever-ready Kelly had read that we should call to order a cab. We went outside the train station, made the call and no one came. Of course there were plenty of schiesters (spelling?) willing to take us. We made another call and this time we got a ride. It was a little frustrating but I got over it. The hotel was right along the Danube River and very nice. Got up into the room and wait a minute - NO CAMERA!! I left it in the cab. All the pictures, all the memories, all the wedding pics that Julie took - was it meant to be?? Needless to say, the hotel and cab driver were very nice/honest and we got it back
We ate outside at a little cafe
Yesterday we went to a very old town by train along the Danube
. Very relaxing day - once the shopping spree was over (gulp!). We have only had a little bad weather the first day on our trip. Other than that it has been about 70F and sunny. Very lucky. Last night we took a boat ride down the Danube in Budapest. Overrated. Today we will visit the market and I will try to restrain Kellly from buying too much. I am trying to work my way out of this but this is impossible I think. We take the train overnight to Krakow tonight. It is a 10hr. ride with a sleeper car. I have never done this before so I am waiting to see what this is like. This will be our last city on our adventure. Time is not flying and we are thoroughly enjoying all of the trip thus far. Talk to you in Poland!
