The journey in between two “storms” / Prophylactic self-isolation series. Day 213rd.

The statue sitting on the rails by the river

The journey to Budapest, Hungary, took place in between two “storms”: the first one was the real storm Ciara, a powerful extratropical cyclone, which has affected north Europe in February 2020, and the second one – “storm” of COVID. Fortunately, life experience says, any storm comes to an end…:)

So, Budapest!

You will not get lost along the river Danube – the views are outstanding, with a great nice buildings along two sides of the river. In fact, one could overview all the main objects to visit as a one-two day tourist just by reaching the river and looking around. However, wear a comfortable shoes! The distances are huge if going by foot:)

Croissant in Hungarian style

Tasty bun filled in with poppy seeds. I cut it in half and add a portion of butter for more pleasure. Yep, that was still a time when I ate cakes and buns time to time…

The Little Princess statue

I am honest with you, the name of the statue I found only today while writing this post. When you are in the reality – there are no time for scrolling and watching the phones…

I also have found an interesting site to visit (as we are in virtual reality nowadays, mostly) and learn about statues of Budapest. Now many things make sense! But during the journey it was just a pleasure to be there, to be and be alive.

Matthias Church is not only one of the top attractions in Budapest but also one of the most romantic places! at daytime and nighttime, both!

Library of the Hungarian Parliament

We entered it by making call reservation in advance. I am pretty sure, Harry Potter spent lots of time in this library!!!
