- PLACES TO VISIT -

Writing this post just reminds me of how beautiful of a City Budapest really is and today you can join me as I reminisce back to my summer trip! 
This was Mr and I first holiday trip together and we were both super excited! We don’t usually get to spend a lot of time consecutively with each other since we live about 45mins apart, and with clashes of work schedules it can be really hard to see each other. This was a break we were both very much looking forwards to and one that was much needed! 

If you are planning a trip to Budapest, I highly recommend Wizz air, which was the airline we went for. They are the easy jet of Hungry and do some great deals (this is totally not sponsored by the way) and we booked their hotel and flight package. We ended up staying at ROOMbach  (which I would also recommend) hotel for 4 days 3 nights and the total for the package came up to about £180 inc tax.
As soon as we got settled into our hotel, we made it in time to catch the afternoon free Walking tour. Whenever I go on European trips I love to go on a free walking tour on the first day, to experience an overall of the city and familiar ourselves with the new surroundings before exploring ourselves. What I love about the free walking tour is they do it on a tip basis. That means the tour is free and at the end of the tour you can tip as much as you want depending how much you’ve enjoyed it, and every time I’ve been it has always been pleasant. I highly recommend searching for on before your trip!
Enough talk here is a little photo diary of where we visited... are you ready? 
-Chain Bridge-
- Fisherman’s Bastion | Halaszbastya -

- St Stephen’s Basilica | Szent Istvan Bazilika -

- Heroes’ Square -

 - Gellert Thermal Bath -
If you’ve never experienced a thermal bath before then I would highly recommend Gellert Thermal Baths. This was Mr & I first time experiencing a thermal bath too and we really enjoyed it. A great time to go is in the afternoon after a morning full of sightseeing as it’s the perfect way to relax and unwind for the evening. 

TIP: Bring a shower cap with you, or remember to take one from your hotel before you leave as you will need it for certain pools. 


- Gellert Hill & Statue -
This was right next to the thermal bath and a great place to watch the sunset. Just to warn you there is a little hike getting up there so wear appropriate footwear, but once you’re up there its worth it. 
- Parliament -
      

Budapest is such a beautiful City and I just fell in love with it. 
Stay tuned for part 2 - What we ate in Budapest! 
Much love,
