Three years ago I with my friend got Schengen visa. During the next two and half weeks, we were wandering around Europe. We had been visited such countries as Hungary, Spain, France, Monaco, Italy, and Poland. Almost every day we arrived in a new city, met new people, swam in the Mediterranean sea, saw different styles of architecture and museums. Each of us had only 300 € in the pocket but in our mind, we had incredible wish to make our trip come true.
04. 08. It was 15 20 than I ran out metro like a bullet with rucksack on my back, packet with cake in hand and 300 E in my pocket. All money that I took for traveling in Europe. It promised much adventures. And adventures started right now! . Our train came in 15 24!!!!!!!! Tania and her friend shouted me in a mobile that the train leaves from the first platform. I flew up to the second floor and O MY GOD – there was second platform on the board, not first!
Some people ran somewhere to the right. Instinctly I followed them, jumped in dark coach and shouted: “ Does this train come to Chop! (Chop is town on the border) Conductor said me something but I didn’t hear her. Only at third time I understood. Yeas, this train to Chop. Yeas, yeas, yeas! I was ready to kiss the conductor.
Near hundred youngers were sitting on stairs of huge st. Stefan’s cathedral. In front of the cathedral there was nice narrow street with nightclubs. Its come to Danube river. I heard that Budapest is very attraction at night and I was charmed by its beauty. Whole city was in lights. There was Gothic palace on the other bank. Huge light bridge throw river.. Many big and small buildings in antique stile. It was really like in fairy tale. Like my dream in childhood.
06.08. I woke up at 8 o’clock becouse by our neighbors shouted much. They thought, if they wake up the same must do a whole house. I looked on my cake. Its seams delicious with chocolate cover. But something was missed. Nothing to do and I put nuts on it “Buda”. End didn’t fit so I write “pest” up. I really felt in love with this city.
When Tania woke up we came to palace of Hungarian king. Now there is a museum. Administrator was so pleasant that let us go free as museum workers!
It was so huge four floors museum. Underground was the most attraction. Came down and down to cells there Hungarian kings had kept their enemies. Another surprise for us was cheap and delicious food in Hungary. Particularly, ice-cream, watermelon, milk.
07.08. We spend night in Budapest airport waiting for plane. There was so cold. Tania slept covering with carpet. I had nice conversation with some Hungarian man who travel from London home. He treated me London’s bananas ( Ha-ha London bananas the cheapst food there. Now I know it) and told that he works in London as a builder. His lovely religion family stays in small Hungarian village on the boundary with Rumania.
