Greetings all! We’re back from Budapest! I’m going to do a blog entry for each day of our long weekend, so here is Saturday’s.

Hubby and I arrived late afternoon on Saturday to 33 degree heat! Wowzer! Luckily we had booked a return trip with the Airport Shuttle . Very good idea, as I can’t imagine having to do public transport in a strange city in that kind of heat. The Airport shuttle dropped us off right in front of our hotel. Brilliant! The hotel was also ideally located on Pest’s “restaurant street” Raday utca, around the corner from the Kalvin ter Metro station in one direction and around the corner from the Great Market Hall and Szabadság híd (the Liberty bridge) in the other direction. Perfect.

We didn’t do much sightseeing on Saturday, apart from taking the Metro to Batthyany ter to walk along the Danube and enjoy the Houses of Parliament and Széchenyi Chain Bridge at night.  It was a lovely evening and very good start to the weekend. Hubby took some amazing photos….
