Budapest Day 1

All excited and eager for the trip, I still have class to go to till mid-day and then to the airport thereafter. It was a short, mere approximately 2 hour journey by plane and there we are!

It was really worrisome as we can't understand a word on any signboards since they are all in Hungarian language! Then we have no idea as to where to purchase the bus tickets since everyone boarded the bus without paying. We knew which station we were suppose to go but as I said, all signboards were written in Hungarian language and so we had to ask the bus driver.

From Budapest Ferihegy ---> Kobanya Kispest

From this main station, again, everything was closed, even the ticket booth and there were no one we could ask for for direction. We just hoped onto the coming train (ie. Metro) and fortunately, Gary remembers the station we're supposed to alight at; Dózsa Gy. 

Since we arrived pretty late, we had our first, and the best ever ever ever food for dinner at Marsall. The opening time was from 12pm -12am and we had definitely made it to the right shop at the right time!

Should you want to have a visit, here's the address - 1133 Budapest, Drava u. 12.

A rather modest setting but don't leave just yet..

Beers for 2 pound a glass..Where to find in UK!

Dear's - Mixed plate of beef, wedges, etc..

Michelle's salmon fillet with lime sauce which tasted a little fishy 

My chicken in soy sauce and honey with grilled peaches and mashed potatoes

Winning meal of the day
Gary's awesome meal, Pork Medallion.

For dessert:-

Home made dumplings

Strawberry pancake with vanilla ice-cream

And we paid 13,244 thousand Forint (equivalent to 47.30 pounds), which is VERY affordable.

Stay tuned for Day 2!

I definitely want to read a bit more on this blog soon. BTW, rather nice design your blog has, but what do you think about changing it from time to time?
