Vienna Austria

While travelling through Europe this year we stopped in Vienna. I had no idea why I wanted to go there or what I wanted to see, I just knew I wanted to visit it! And when we started looking up what to do there, we were blown away at the amount of things you can do and see, and the best part is a lot of it is free! We visited so many palaces and gardens, they were all so amazing! The landscaping, sculptures and architecture were stunning! My favorite place was probably Schonbrun, the arch ways of vines and lilacs were incredible, and those greenhouses that look like early 1900’s architecture with the wirey metal structures, amazing! And once you hike through all of the gardens and up a very large hill, you have the most amazing views! and on the way back down there are so many more things and sculptures and fountains you can stop and see! While in Vienna we stayed at a hotel right across the street from the Opera, it was the perfect location to see most things via walking and hop on the trains to visit the farther sights! I must say the one thing I always pictured when I thought of vienna was the biggest let down of all and that was Hunderwasser House. I didn’t realize it was just a painting on the side of a building until we made it all the way out there, save your time, visit more palaces instead!

Budapest

While we were in Europe, I wanted to see something different, as nice as France, London and Italy are, I wanted to experience something else. I really wanted to go to a number of other places, but Alan, being the worrier that he is, vetoed them all due to “dangerous circumstances” or something. So the farthest east place I could get him to go was Budapest. & boy is he glad he went, it was our favourite place by far! I had no doubts it would be my fave! It was interesting and unique and cheap, which was probably the best part! We stayed in an amazing little apartment just a block away from the New York Cafe. We fell for the tourist trap of the hop on hop off busses, it seemed like a good idea. on a map Budapest looks huge, in reality, its not that big. We took the bus once, and then, honestly, they wouldn’t let me on with ice cream so we walked every where else. We saw some churches, some stunning churches that were actually different than the usual western Europe ones, very elaborate, but to the point of it being almost gaudy, same with the New York Cafe, very pretty but almost overwhelming on the eyes. the outside of the churches was the most spectacular, the multi colored tile work was phenomenal. The Parliament building was a sight to be reckoned with, its apparently one of the largest Parliament buildings in all of Europe, or so they tell you. Either way, its gorgeous! And the copper roofs & detailing on the building is incredible, and how well they maintain it, when you look out over the city, most have oxidized and are green, but the Parliament building ones look brand new. We continued along our self guided walking tours of everything thought the week, but by far my favorite part of the whole trip was the Funicular on Castle Hill. Not just because I saw that movie Grand Budapest Hotel and they had one which was ridiculously cool, but it was so much better in person. Its an elevator that goes side ways, maybe this is only exciting for me, but we watched it for a solid half hour or more, it was awesome! Our last night there we tried almost every flavor of this Hungarian alcohol, Pálinka, it was esophagus burning kind of alcohol, but it came in these pretty little shot glasses! The fancy raspberry flavored one was the best!
