14th April ’16 Mandala Hostel, Budapest

A fine place with a nice relaxed hippy vibe about it. 

Staff are all young.

I think they are either workawers or with helpx.

And it is hot.

Lord is it hot.

I nearly missed my bus from Warsaw. Oh yeah I was in Warsaw for a day or two. 

I was waiting at the drop off point for an hour, not the collection point. Rookie mistake.

This was my first long bus ride, 12 hours. It wasn’t as bad as I had expected, we stopped every few hours and got out to stretch our legs. There was free tea and coffee, I used the hot water to make a very nutritious noodle lunch.  God bless Lux Express

We rolled down through Slovakia, passing wide open fields and mountain views and I watched it all, sleepily pass from my window.

 Today in Budapest.

First day here. I arrived at the hostel 10ish last night. Today I didn’t do a whole lot. I went and checked out the river, then found a huge park with some kind of statue in it.

Turns out Gellert Hill and the Statue of Liberty are kind of a big deal in Budapest

   I think I’ll go for a ramble in the other direction now in a few and see what mysteries I find.

Note to self. Must find chemist lest my Irish skin melt in the sun.  

 

 

This is part of an ongoing series. The previous post can be found here.
