When we first hopped of the train in Keletti station in Budapest the first thing that we both noticed was the amount of weirdos hanging around. We hadn't been in a big city in a while, so I guess all the freaky characters hanging around the station was a little intimidating. After stuffing around in the station for a good half an hour trying to work out how to get to our hostel, we finally made it there close to midnight.
Budapest was awesome!!
The next day we set out on a day trip to a couple of smaller towns on the Danube. They were recommended to us by locals and the way that everyone was crapping on about these places, made us want to move to one of them before even seeing either of them. One Hungarian bloke at the train station was like "oh man, I hope you have your cameras with you, these places are special." So we headed of to these towns excited as ever expecting to see some heavenly places that would be like nothing else in the world. It wasn't to be!!! Without a doubt, I would have had more fun bird watching in Bungendore than walking around these boring outpost towns. The first place, Estergom was ok, nothing too special with a massive bassilica on the hill. The highlight of this place was walking across the bridge into Slovakia, having a cheap lunch and picking up some cheap beers for one of the blokes back at the hostel.
Anyway, we got back to the hostel later that night, sunk a few quiet ones and hit the sack
So, after bugger all sleep we headed of to Bratislava the next day.
