During 2011 I spent about a month backpacking around Europe. The whole trip was a whirlwind but more so were the 20 hours in Budapest. We arrived late in the evening around 11pm. We got off the train, hit the ATM and tried to get transit passes. The ATM had given us bills so large the cashier wouldn't take them, foreign currency oops! We ended up hoofing it to the hostel for the night which thankfully wasn't too far. After sleeping in a bit too much we got up and headed into town for the day. On foot we aimed towards the downtown area in search of breakfast. We found this amazing cafe that had the best jelly filled croissants and delicious coffee. A perfect start. When we got down town we hit up one of those double decker city tour busses to get an overview. It was a wild ride! There was a pause on the tour which happened to be across the street from a wine shop. We got a delicious bottle of red and to this day my favorite wine key. After careening around corners and zooming all over the town we hopped off at a giant market place and picked up further provisions for the next train ride. After spending most of our cash we hopped on a trolly to get back to the hostel and load up for the overnight train ride to Venice, Italy which was its own adventure. I definitely want to go back to Budapest and explore so much more.
