Ok, so I lied last time. I swear I will eventually post my pictures from London, but I am still on a "Hungary high." Budapest was so much more than we expected! It was a relaxing trip, for once, and I am really glad we chose to go. It was a really random, last minute trip, but a definite recommendation.
So, here are five things about Budapest!
1. It is pronounced not the way it is spelled, but like "booda pesht." We were reminded of this several times throughout our trip.
2. Budapest has the cutest restaurants/cafes that I have ever seen! I fell in love with this cafe that we just happened to stop off at right before we left the city. Best part of our trip. Also, they make some excellent Italian pizza. Who knew?
5. We thought that the city was very old, and were excited to see, as Joel puts it, "Old Stuff." We found out that while the city itself is old and while it looks old, it was mostly destroyed in WWII. So, they decided to rebuild the city exactly how it was before the war. Small and crazy roads and all.
