Budapest, Hungary

Budapest. The third and final summer destination. One of the most beautiful cities I've seen so far.

Also a place full of disasters from start to finish because as soon as I arrived, I fell down the concrete bank which is next to Parliament and have either badly bruised or fractured by tailbone, and am still in a lot of pain! However, glossing over that, I tried to forget about the pain and carried on like nothing had happened.

If you've ever been to Paris, Budapest feels like you are there. The buildings are very Parisian and decorative, which I actually loved looking at and walking around. Parliament, as you can see, is both stunning day and night.

We visited all of the 'sights', so Parliament, Fisherman's Bastille, St. Stephens Bastion,
SzĂ©chenyi Thermal Bath, Buda Castle and the City park including a trip to the zoo. 

I must admit, although everyone raves about the spa, it wasn't for me and I only lasted an hour. 
If any of you don't like baths because it's like bathing in your own dirt, you'll know exactly what I mean! 
It was an experience though and one I'm glad I did.

I was also really impressed with how cheap the food and drink was! One of my favourite places to visit was Karavan which is like a small garden full of street food. We shared this pulled pork goulash bread dish which was really good. I loved how it was lit with lanterns as well which I imagine are so pretty in the dark.

I know Budapest feels like the place to go in the blogging world (and real world from what I've seen), but I can definitely see why. It's a beautiful place, great summer weather and extremely kind people.
