My view in Budapest

My trip to Budapest was booked back in the middle of December and there was no way I was going to cancel it. So I dragged my sorry arse out of bed for the first time in six days, headed to the airport and after spending a bit of time getting to know a ‘sick bag’, I arrived in Budapest.  I then collapsed into bed and slept for a very long time.

And with that, I promise not to write anything else about being ill.  In fact let’s treat my immune system like a child having a tantrum.  Let’s just ignore it and go about our business, perhaps if no one is paying it any attention, it will get bored and start behaving itself.


My view in Budapest


So far I can tell you four things about Budapest…

  1. The taxi drivers are very good-looking. I am basing this entire generalisation on the one taxi I took from the airport, but I have high hopes now from the Hungarian capital.
  2. My bed at the art’otel is huge and super comfy.
  3. The view from my hotel room is quite frankly awesome (see above picture!). I seem to be having an excellent run of hotel room views at the moment and I love it.
  4. There is a bright yellow bus IN the river (also shown in above picture!).  It is moving/driving/sailing so I don’t think it’s the Hungarian equivalent of a shopping trolley having been dumped, nonetheless, it’s not something that you see everyday, so I thought I would mention it.


The sun is shining, I have a fresh new guide-book to scribble all over and I’m off to explore my 27th country.
