I did intend on getting all of these Budapest posts up straight after I got back to England, but in all honesty, it was just too depressing to have to go back to the daily grind while constantly thinking about how lovely our break was.
Trying to sort and edit the hundreds I photos I took also made me want to grab my passport and immediately jump on a plane.. so it’s taken a little while to get here but here’s our first full day in Budapest.
We took a stroll from our apartment through the streets of Pest, stopping to browse the souvenir stores and take in the sights, on the way to our intended destination, the Great Market Hall.
We came to a square of beautiful gardens surrounded by the most amazing architecture.
My mom and I always love shopping when we’re away, especially browsing the local markets so the Great Market Hall was at the very top of our To Do list.
The balcony floor has hundreds of Budapest and Hungary souvenirs, from shot glasses to traditional dress.
We bought a few bits and pieces for lunch and created ourselves a little picnic in the gardens outside before taking in the views over the Danube from the nearby Liberty Bridge.
With arms full of goodies we popped back to our apartment for a quick rest before dinner.. I’ll tell you all about that in the next post.
