Flew from Geneva to Budapest (thank you Phil le Taxi!).  Think our fellow passengers were quite envious of our packed lunch compared to the overpriced plane fodder (cheers Emilie!).

Our accommodation was overbooked so they put us in a different hotel further away from the train station - bugger!  By the time we'd sorted ourselves out then gone back to suss out the train to Bratislava it was dark so the best we could do was wander round and see various sites lit up - mostly on the opposite side of the Danube (the liberation monument, statue of St Gellert, Buda castle, the chain bridge).  Had dinner at a waterside bar & grill but hadn't reckoned on the service charge (higher than the tip we had intended to leave) and had to scrape some euros together to make up the difference.  Totally cleaned us out of Florets and a bit peed off afterwards when we worked out the sterling cost of our meal (it was like the praline incident Dad!) - that will teach us for being so green.  Still all part of the learning curve!
