There was our first endeavour to go to a Eastern European Hard Rock. Lots of the memorabilia was geared towards the metal theme with the Beatles and Elvis strewn about.
Obligatory Jumbo Combo was eaten with a side of mac'n'cheese. Finished off with a new extra large brownie ice cream Sunday.
As for as Budapest goes great city. …
We waited on the tracks for 40 minutes last night. We were nervous because the ticket agent wouldn't sell us a sleeper compartment and then we worried we wouldn't even be able to sit together. It had already been a long day and we were both dirty and hot and tired when we finally boarded at 11:15 pm.
The train had come from Croatia, and …
... conversation, helped him figure out what we had already spent time doing, figuring out how the machines worked, and even exchanged currency, LOL. He needed Hungarian Forints for the machines and we were headed to Prague and could use some starter Czech Korunas so after a check on Tom’s iPhone for the exchange rate, all were made happy.
With the wash finished and Korunas in our pockets, we returned to the apartment to get some sleep and prepare for ...
I seem to have lost my entry for today and yesterday although it could be somewhere I can't find so here we go again. I think I may have pasted it somewhere so you may end up getting two versions of this!! Our last day in Prague was spent with a walking tour with Vladamir taking us around Old and New Prague. It was pretty warm and I am feeling loaded down with history. We did the Jewish area again and it was interesting to compare the commentary with the ...
... back, we came down in a gondola, that sort of just fell over the edge of the mountain and then slowly made it's way down to the bottom of the hill. However it was another fantastic experience which would have been better if the sun was shining but generally we were really blessed with good weather.
Then went of a walking tour of Lucerne with our tour guide which was shortened a bit due to the rain. The afternoon was free time to shop...we didn't do too much -I ...

Stayed here in Mid-November. Hotel was wonderfully located near the City Centre. It was only a short walk to most of the tourist attractions.
For the most part staff was very courteous with some exception. When we checked in the woman at the front desk was wonderful about quickly changing our rooms because we didn't want to be on the main road side of the hotel due to some noise. We were put into a room which we found out later that the heat only went on and could not be turned down. This meant that the room went up to 25C at one point. The reception staff we called told us just to open the window. Quick fix yes, but not the best alternative.
Breakfast was up and down. First day was bacon and eggs with cereal, breads, and fruit. Next day eggs with mushrooms and half the breads were gone with no fruit. Last day there the coffee machine died. So all in all ups and downs. Was nice to have a relatively cheap place to eat right in the hotel.
Shower had great temp and water pressure though if you have any issues raising your leg above about 2 feet you might have a bit of trouble getting into the shower.
All in all pretty good overall.
