The coach journey to Hungary was pretty uneventful – there were actually people at border control this time although they didn't say anything about lack of visa for Slovakia. Fiona and pretty much everyone else on the coach fell asleep except me, I ended up chatting with Chris and Emma which was nice :) We got to Budapest but I can't remember …
So after napping it out on the bus for another couple of hours, I got awoken by being told we would soon be arriving in Budapest and we would be dropped off in the city to chill out for a few hours before the bus would be going back to the hotel.. I really picked the worst bus day to be sleepy!!
Anyway I picked my feet up and jumped off …
... About 4 hours in, I began daydreaming of different ways you could kill someone with Skymall (Don't worry, I'll be sure to make a HaikuDeck about it) Beyond that, my trip was great and decently uneventful. I watched The Hunger Games, befriended a nice Hungarian on my connecting flight and am currently running on 1 hour of sleep. I am living the life! :)
... Outside the museum there are heaps of plaques of people who were killed in there.
We learnt a lot about how Hungary fared during WWII. We thought they did pretty well as they held off the Nazi’s and were not occupied until March 1944.

TravelPod Member ReviewsMercure Budapest Duna
This hotel was nice enough interms of the rooms and facilities, however we found the staff to be rather rude.
I understand that we were a rather large group of under 35's... but they should have predicted that we would probably end up wanting a drink or 2 at the hotel bar at night and prepared themselves possibly with an additional staff member?
We waited up to 25minutes to be served at times because the man at the front desk was "busy doing other stuff"... he then was rude when he took our orders.
So, yeah, not impressed with service, but the hotel itself was nice enough
