We arrived in Budapest around 9.30am and made our way to the hostel,we were actually staying in a really cute little apartment which only had 3 rooms. We shared a 4 bed room with Carly and Cat.
Went for a wander around through the shopping streets and got some lunch. it's amazing how much difference there is between the shops in Budapest versus Brasov! Carly and Cat both arrived in late afternoon so we headed out for dinner and had an early night.
We headed over to the Buda side of the city the following day, beautiful views over the city from the other side, which had a castle and lots of touristy attractions. they have tried to maintain the old town feel, it's very cute but felt touristy (Until we got to Prague).

Rory and I had scoped out an all you can eat and all you can drink place on one of our walks on the first day so we went there for dinner. The food was really nice, very good quality they even had a selection of meats, poultry and seafood that you could have grilled in front of you. Alcohol selection was beer, wines and champagne- we were well and truly impressed as it cost us about $22 Aussie each and def not like an Aussie all you can eat!! I was so full afterwards that my stomach was hurting- couldn't even fit in much alcohol!
All You Can Eat!
Spent a good part of the next day at the traditional Hungarian Baths. It was a big old building with around 30 different sized pools/spas with hot water and minerals in it. They were jam packed with people! Also had a few different Saunas and steam rooms on offer- we found it hard to relax as there was a strong eggy smell and so many old people wandering around and laying in the pools it was a bit off putting, an experience though!

We had an amazing dinner at a Hummus restaurant! Best hummus I have ever had!! Rory went out with some guys he had met on our last night but us girls were buggered so headed home!

We spent our last day wandering around Budapest and then caught an overnight train to Prague.. Not the best overnight train we have caught, very squishy but we slept well enough!!
We really loved Budapest and regret not staying another couple of nights! Such a cool city and so much more laid back/smaller/less full of tourists!
