Oh Budapest, you were a dream! Although we’re still recovering from our jet lag and sun burns, I couldn’t wait another day to write about our wonderful trip to Eastern Europe.
We made many memories in Budapest, thanks to our travel company, Boutique Journeys, and our own research and planning, but our favorite activity of the trip BY FAR was our river boat cruise along the Danube River.
Our impeccable views of the magical sunset, historical buildings, and glorious landmarks while sipping on a bottle of champagne was a once in a lifetime event. We felt like members of the Austrio-Hungarian empire for a couple of hours as we watched the sunset.
…then zig zagged across the river as the buildings and bridges began lighting up one by one in the darkness.
Everything from Gellert Hill and Statue to the infamous Elisabeth bridge felt within our grasp. Giggly from the champagne and the bouncing boat as it races across the choppy waters, we felt like members of Gatsby’s entourage. We befriended our boat captain, Dominik, and his assistant as they told us about how much they loved their hometown. It was a magical evening!
And this was only our first night in Budapest! More posts on our adventures to come soon…
