Budapest 

I recently visited the wonderful city of Budapest. With endless attractions and events, spread over both sides of the Danube, we walked over 10 miles everyday. It’s amazing what you can pack into one day. One morning we scaled the 700 ft Gellert Hill, to see the Statue of Liberty and Citadel. Had an afternoon stroll along the Buda side of the Danube to visit Buda Castle, Sándor Palace, Matthias Church and the stunning Fisherman’s Bastion. Then we ended the day with drinks at one of the famous Ruin Bars (until early hours of the next morning).

The ultimate Breakfast Club on Tour

In a 24/7 city, with so much to do in a limited time, the only thing that kept me going was food. Luckily for me Budapest is a foodies dream. Offering every type of cuisine in hundreds of restaurants. Restaurants offering breakfast and brunch were very popular with tourists wanting to fuel up for another busy day of sightseeing. All restaurants offered the staple breakfast items, but some were extra special. Garzon Café introduced me to Nutella stuffed French Toast, it’s as sickly and dirty as the name suggests. Á La Maison have perfected my favourite breakfast, the poached egg. I went for the Flat Avocado Sandwich with poached egg, delicious.

My top 5 must do’s in Budapest 

1. Pay your respects at The Shoes on the Danube.
2. Cross the Chain Bridge at night to see the city in lights. 
3. Walk everywhere, you’ll stumble across hidden gems you won’t read about in the guide books. 
4. Have a drink in the unique Ruin Bars
5. Reserve tables, Budapest has some incredible restaurants that fill up quickly with both locals and tourists.
