Bye-bye Budapest

It’s been a crazy first couple of days. Sitting on a train to Bratislava and reflecting, I managed to fit so much in. From walking and exploring a good majority of the city to sampling the local nightlife it’s been a fantastic couple of days. 882 more words

Budapest is a must when visiting Central Europe. This jewel next to the Danube is awesome on summer (Sziget Festival!) and great during the winter, just be sure you have a nice jacket as it can get really cold and don’t forget to enjoy the… 37 more words

沉醉在布達佩斯‧Addicted to Budapest

第1日 – 2012年4月4日

今天8:35 am 飛機去布達佩斯,跟上次去布拉格不一樣,沒有同伴說說笑笑,竟覺有點寂寞,可能最近常常和朋友一起,自己一人有點不慣。而且有很多未知之數,對於要去的這個國家沒什麼概念,去之前也沒做很多資料搜集;要在那裡住3晚,只有2晚找到“沙發”;還有聽說東歐比較危險,自己一人怕遇到什麼事。心裡滿是不安感,然而我為何膽怯?為何失去信心?難道不信神與我同行?

5:30 pm到了“沙發”家,她正在教學生,今天整個人都處於緊張狀態,所以很累。剛在找換店兌錢,換30歐,給了50歐,拿了福林(Ft.)就走了。之後在附近逛,因為決定買3天遊客卡,所以想兌多些錢,那時才發現我忘了拿20歐!回到找換店,是剛剛那店員,因為這裡的人英文不太好,溝通起來比較難。我跟她說沒拿找回的錢,她認得我,給我那20歐!很感恩! :)

跟“沙發”喝了杯茶,聊了一會,她便要去聽音樂會。我跟她一起出去,想去漁夫堡看夜景。但去之前,要先去一間青旅訂房。誰知,那店員誤以為我今晚入住,還帶我去房間,我跟她解釋了一會,她明白了,但查了紀錄後說我要住的那晚沒房了…… 可是我明明在網上看是有的!有點無助,但也沒辦法。唯有回家上網看看。在言語不同的地方很難溝通!

漁夫堡的夜景很漂亮,漸漸愛上這裡了!在那裡認識了一個自己旅遊的中國女孩,她在英國讀碩士,聊了一會。

回到家,上網訂了那間青旅的床位,放下了心頭大石! :)

Backpacking Europe

Greetings from Budapest!

This is Buda Castle from behind, and it is part of the beautiful view we have from our apartment. This picture doesn’t do it much justice but trust me, it’s so much prettier in person. 75 more words
