We arrived in Budapest after a smooth plane journey. We caught a bus to Kobanya Kispest and the metro to central Pest. Upon leaving the metro we encountered a ticket inspector. Where we found out we were 'riding the black' and fined 5000huf. We hadn't validated our tickets, doh!! You are suppose to stick the ticket in one of those little orange boxes before you get on the train!
After dumping our 2 ton bags (14KG!!) at the Astoria Hostel we ventured in to Pest's center which is very trendy and then sat on the bank of the Danube.

Today we went across the Danube to Buda where we caught a cable car up to the castle. This afternoon we went back to Pest for a bath at Szechenyi furdo which we highly recommend.
