….and more vacation {Budapest, Hungary}

Sorry I didn’t get right back to ya with my vacation pics.  Work, kids and a nasty cold kicked my butt and I am just now coming up for air. 

Soooo, moving on…..

We flew from Lithuania to meet the kids and the rest of my family in Budapest, Hungary.   The architecture in downtown Budapest is amazing, probably some of the prettiest I have ever seen.  The food was amazing and reminded me of the Hungarian dishes my grandmother made when we were little.  It was the only place that I ate meat….cabbage rolls, chicken paprikash, goulash…..and it was so worth it!  Friends of my parents were our fantastic hosts and gave us a wonderful tour of the city, including some places outside of Budapest.  I took a lot of pictures here.  It was hard not to.  The kids enjoyed the River Ride Bus.  Yep, a tour bus that plunges into the Danube halfway through the tour.  I could go on and on but I know that you are just here for the pictures:)

This is definitely a place where we will come back and spend some time.  Gorgeous country.  Beautiful people.

The River Bus as in drives into the Danube River.  Crazy.  The kids thought it was rad; I had a moment of pause.

Thank you George and Violet for showing us part of your beautiful country.  We loved it!

There is one more post about our vacation.  After saying goodbye to my parents in Budapest, the rest of us flew on to Venice. We were there for only a day and a half but it was definitely worth it!
