    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.

    ... were inhabited. In the 1930s they were investigated and mapped out by the city.

    During the early years of WWII it was decided many of these would be expanded by joining and lining them to make access easier and usable. This included putting in electricity, ventilation and a sewage system. The initial purpose was as a bomb shelter but as the fortunes of war changed and the Soviets neared (the ...

    ... for me. Great seats but the furtherest to reach on the track, finally arriving 3 hours after we left hotel, dripping wet. Had missed practice 3, but watched Qualifying and then GP2 which features 2 New Zealanders, before trotting off to the Police Station. An hour and half later, after 6 pages of statement and 2 interpreters we jumped in a cab and came back to hotel. Sunday dawned cooler, but we caught a cab and arrived in our seats an hour later with no stress. Interesting ...

    ... under the Margaret Bridge and around Margaret Island; 2.5 kms long and 500m wide. Now sailing South we viewed the hillier Buda side of Budapest which has the Castle area and Gellert Hill, named after St Gerard who tried to bring Christianity to the region in the 11th century. After the cruise we climbed to the top of Gellert Hill, upon which stands the Liberty statue. At the top there are magnificent views of the city, ...

    To start with before leaving Vienna we walked through the Nashmarket, which happened to be on our doorstep. Lots of flavours coming from the east, but considering where we are heading there we didn't indulge. The drizzly rain and Mr sore throat sent us on our way to the train station for our short (2.5hrs) trip to Budapest Hungary. Well you can really feel that we are back in an ex-soviet, eastern European country as soon as you leave the ...

    ... time in there as my glasses fog. I really enjoyed the dry sauna though. It has three chambers. The first is 50°, the middle is 50-55° and the last chamber is a wonderfully toasty 72°. I surprised myself by really enjoying the warmest chamber. You can feel the moist air move through your lungs as you breath it in. We are planning to go to another bath again tomorrow, the outdoor bath that is iconic with this city. I am really looking forward to it ...
