Photography Friday: H is for ‘Hungary’!

Back in 2008 I boarded a bus with a bunch of European Erasmus students from Linz, Austria to Budapest, Hungary.

Budapest is split by a river Danube, one side of the city is called ‘Buda’ and the other ‘Pest’ or ‘Pache’ if you’re pronouncing it correctly. The parliament is glorious, particularly from the view of the Buda Castle across the river.

Rather than go on too much, I’ll let the photographs show you how beautiful Budapest in Hungary really is. Excuse the quality of image composition, this was a long time ago and my photography has come a long way since!

Despite the horrible accommodation (imagine a bed of just springs basically in like a 20 bed dorm) and long bus ride, it was a lovely weekend trip to do. The baths were incredible – like swimming in Roman Baths and the architecture around the city was beautiful.
