Budapest

Unfortunately, I was not the best at taking pictures during my stay in Budapest which is something I highly regret because the city was beautiful! I know, I know I say that about all the cities I have been to, but it is true. Each city has its’ own unique beauty that makes it special which is why when people ask me which was my favorite I struggle to come up with an answer because they are all so different and beautiful in their own distinctive ways.

Anyway, back to the lovely Budapest which actually used to be two separate cities call Buda and Pest. Buda, located on the west side of the river, is very hilly and rural whereas Pest is much more urban. Want to read more? Click HERE

I visited the gorgeous Parliament, the famous Fishermans castle, took a bus tour, and even had a traditional Hungarian dinner – complete with live entrainment of course. However, none of these could beat the afternoon I spent at the Széchenyi thermal baths.

I did not take any actual pictures of my own while I was there as I was too busy trying out as many of the 18 pools and 10 (yes 10!) different saunas. The baths range in all levels of salinity and temperatures and are said to have sacred healing powers. I am not sure about that, but after traveling for over 20 days these pools defiantly helped bring my poor body back to life. So if you happen to find yourself in Budapest anytime soon – these pools better be on your to do list!
