A Holiday to look Forward Too – Budapest

Good morning all,

Another Monday morning and an unsettled week of weather ahead.

If you’re like me, dreaming of getting on a plain won’t be far from your mind especially with all this unsettled weather we are having. No doubt you will be wondering if there will come a time soon when travel to far away places, exotic beaches and stunning city sites can return to normal anytime soon.

For a second summer, our wings have been clipped and many of us will be eagerly waiting for announcements from our government. What countries will have formed an alliance to open the travel corridor and in turn be added to our green list.

We, as a nation, have been told that 2 doses of vaccine will build our immunity against Covid-19 and it’s very unlikely we will contract this horrible disease. With that in mind, surly people with 2 does are safe to travel to countries that have adopted the vaccine policy? Especially as there are so many rapid flow test everywhere to confirm our negative results.

Let’s hope Boris can create an alliance with countries to open up travel and allow us to fly away to destinations with guaranteed weather. Yes, i’m aware Ibiza is accepting us British travellers but, i’m afraid as i’ve got older, I don’t want “BOOM BOOM” I want something different form my holiday… Relaxation and hustle and bustle when I want it.

Budapest

Long weekend in Europe.

If you are looking forward to a long weekend away or a holiday there are many places to visit across the globe.

Sometimes it’s nice to stay in the UK and sometimes it’s great to get on a plane.

With Covid 19 restrictions being slowly lifted a starting point for a break could be that long weekend in a European capital.

For a great time anytime of the year check out Budapest.

Getting to Budapest is easy from many UK airports. Flights with the budget airlines can be as little at £18 one way with Ryanair from Stansted. Flights are less than two hours.

Travel from Budapest airport in to the city takes around 30 mins and can cost as little as a few pounds on a bus or around £30 by taxi.

All the travel options are available from outside the terminal.

You may know that Budapest is split in two by the River Danube, Buda on one side and the area of Pest on the other.

The city is broken down in to Districts so it is easy to plan your stay in your chosen area.

Don’t forget your walking shoes as there is plenty to see and do.

Buda

Buda is built on a hillside over looking the Danube, the area has many more older buildings to visit and is easy accessible via the wonderful Funicular Railway.

At the top of the hill there are many small cobbled streets and restaurants to choose from. If you are not hungry then take a visit to Buda Castle, Halászbástya and the Matthias Church. The view from Halászbástya in the evening overlooking the river and Pest is wonderful.

Pest

The Pest area of Budapest is more modern but with some beautiful buildings and sites to see in particular St Stephen’s Basilica, The Government buildings and Parliament are stunning to see from the land or the water.

If shopping is more your thing all the major global outlets are there along with local Hungarian shops.

Food is aplenty, get off the main roads and find the small independent food outlets for quality local traditional food.

If afternoon tea is your thing then do not miss a visit to the New York Cafe. A beautifully decorated and designed building with a classic afternoon tea experience. Book in advance is critical.

River Danube

Don’t miss a boat ride or meal on the Danube and get to see both sides of the city from the river.

A walk along the river particularly on the Pest side is a must to see the Hungarian Jewish Shoe memorial, a haunting and thought provoking experience.

Depending on what time of year you go you may we’ll need to wrap up warm as around Christmas time with the festive markets it can be freezing!

At Christmas the markets are all situated down around the main streets of the Pest side with a selection of festive gifts, trinkets and incredible food stalls selling traditional foods and deserts.

If you fancy trying your hand or feet at Ice Skating then Budapest is the place to go. The outdoor City Park ice rink is huge. You will see some amazing skaters on the ice, join in or stand back and watch.

City tours are not all about walking and eating, in Budapest visit the outdoor Széchenyi Thermal Bath a wonderful experience especially in the winter when it is -5 outside and you are in your swim shorts sitting in hot water!
