    The food was really bad. They served us some undercooked sausage which made me sick. The staff tried to overcharge us for some drinks we ordered in the bar. They also awkwardly tried to join our little group as we sat and drank. They refused to restock one of our rooms with toliet paper, proclaiming that we'd used too much of it, (there was only a partial roll when we checked in). There were also bugs. Big. Fucking. Bugs. Avoid this place unless it's under new management and cleaned up.

    ... got a manicure & pedicure, lovely, Tim went for a beer while he waited.

    Hotels in Europe are different, a double room is basically no single beds pushed together & held in place with a fitted sheet you have your own duvets though can't blame anyone else for pinching it. This hotel also has a smoking floor, level 1, you can smell it every time you walk up ...

    ... idea to create "ruin bars" in some of the dodgy buildings, so in the evening we went on a pub tour, to have a look at a few of them. The idea was that it was a pub tour, not a pub crawl, however our Irish counterparts thought better and it got pretty messy. (the shots of 50% moonshine help burn the bugs in Adams throat right out making him feel instantly better, unbreakable even) The bars are really cool, with different themes running ...

    ... coffee bar at our front door. Anyhoo, moving on........Imre and Hugo took us on a brief walking tour, did some planning around what to see and do for the next few days, and then to dinner. An amazing all-you-can-eat-and-drink places with good quality generous and varied food much of which was traditional Hungarian fodder. Free beer too! Hmmmmm, beer. Split from our wonderful Hungarian guides for some calm and diary ...

    ... that we stayed at was super great and had happy hour starting at 9PM, so yes of course I took advantage of that. We ended up staying there the whole night and meeting a big group of Irish men, who were very typically Irish. Between the copious amounts of beer they were drinking, rugby on TV, and lots of *playful* vulgarity, it was a very unexpectedly fun night.

    And then early in the morning, it was off to Vienna!

    ... we were starving. As we were walking down the street this mouth watering smell filled our noses. We followed and found this tiny place that was making Kransky sausages. So we got a big plate of sausage with bread, mustard and horseradish. It was amazing! We then walked up the massive hill/mountain to the castle. We walked around there for a couple of hours. They had restored it amazingly and we learnt a lot about the history of ...
