Budapest Dinner on the Danube: I felt spoilt!


We celebrated our anniversary (not a big number yet) with an evening I have longed or long wanted to try. My friend did not say a word, just that I should be pretty. I guessed that we would go to a special place. I kept nagging him, Costes? Comme chez sois? Balettcipo? I have like a dozen restaurants on my list I want to try in Budapest!

When we were heading to the river Danube, down to the cobblestones of the docks I knew it would not be the land restaurants of my wish list, but the boat dinner I was so curious about. And there it was, our beautiful ship, all glassy and classy! It was the best dinner cruise in Budapest (apparently there are more, we had the Pay as you order dinner)

The food was delicious! The dessert was ooooohsoyummy. I could have done with a bigger salad, but all courses were good and light. Plus we had a bottle of champagne (easily done). I felt really spoilt with all the panorama, and love, and champagne!

There is no smoking on the boat, so we had to go out on the deck for a cigarette break, but all in all it was a cheesy little evening I can put in my photo album!

If you have a Budapest Card you can get some discount I think.

Budapest New Metro


New cars are coming to Budapest, I mean new metro cars, which is really cool. The old ones are very old and rusty.

I don’t like traveling by metro in Budapest unless I have to. OK, it will take you everywhere in the city as Budapest public transport is quite efficient, but I don’t like traveling underground. The noise is killing me. Not on the new metro though.

You can see the new metro cars in Budapest here. BKV, the official public transportation company needs some serious modernization.
