As I mentioned in my last post, my brother, Brian, came to Budapest to visit me for two weeks. He just went back to Colorado Springs yesterday, and I finally had a little bit of time to take a look at the pictures we took. It was a fully-packed two weeks and we all had a great time. We spent the first part of the time exploring Budapest. And since he is a History teacher, we made sure to see the relics and museums of the various conflicts, occupations and revolutions. We did some touristy things and some non. By the end of the trip, he knew his way around the market, how to order a cappuccino and scones, and the value of sausage and palinka. We had a wonderful party with friends in Szeged, and at the weekend he was even able to eat a shnitzel in Vienna. We ended our trip with a four day adventure in Bovec, Slovenia, which is by far the most beautiful place I’ve seen. He went mountain biking, while Györgyi and I went on a white water trip. The next day we all went on ATVs in the mountain passes. I know I could drag out a blog post all week long and the next, probably, just to tell every detail of his trip. But I think the pictures will do a better job with the story. To see the set from the last two weeks, just click on the picture below.
Fantastic photos — and what a great trip. Can’t wait for our visit and the Gyorgyi and Jessica tour!
Well we are very excited to give you our tour now! And don’t listen to any of Brian’s warnings about Palinka– you’re going to love it here!!
