The third and final leg of our trip (after a brief pause in Frankfurt to catch a plane), was to Budapest, Hungary. It was especially exciting, as neither my partner nor I had been before. While we were there (the end of April), the temperature was in the mid 70s to 80s (mid to high 20s for you Celsius folk); it was absolutely perfect after the long, cold winter we’d had in Luxembourg. And though Paris and Amsterdam both had pleasant weather, this was the first time we actually felt summer heat. Add to that the gorgeous landscape of the city (especially near the Danube) and the varied architecture, this could easily be in the running for our favorite spot so far (though I am withholding that proclamation until we’ve traveled a bit more). Did I mention it’s cheap? All the beauty and activity of the more typical travel destinations like London, Paris, or Amsterdam, at about 1/3 to 1/2 the price. Seriously, it was that cheap.
