Budapest

3 days in Budapest. We stayed in an inner city apartment on the Pest side of the river. Budapest was the combining of 2 cities on either side of the river, Buda (the ritzier side) and Pest (more working class and currently more partiers). The apartment was close to all the tourist attractions. Took a food tour, a bus tour, a river tour, visited the medicinal thermal bath and had a 2 hour Thai massage (ahhhhh). Getting on a Viking river cruise for a 2 week trip on the Danube to Amsterdam.view from our window-2picsour apt buildinghungarian goulashbus tour-5 picsThe Dohány Street Synagogue is the largest synagogue in Europe and the second largest in the world.

  1. Could you tell a difference after bathing in the medicinal pool? You always have the highest smile on your face when you have your picture taken with these “sweet young babes” – LOL! Another awesome visit in a beautiful setting! Be glad you aren’t in Livingston dealing with Harvey! So far no flooding at my house!
