Let the adventure begin!
I started off my day by literally eating the entirety of the hotel’s buffet style breakfast (which included a gazillion types of cheese which I had never seen or eaten before, delicious fruit, yogurt, freshly baked pastries [bless your soul hotel, bless your soul], eggs, and a whole bunch more).
Once breakfast was over, the hotel staff informed me that there would be pastries, juice, tea, and fruits throughout the day and that I could help myself to them.
And my mother and I took some pastries with us when we went to explore Buda.
Unlike the day before, my mother and I were able to find all the sights on Castle Hill quite quickly and easily (it was around a 15 minute walk from our hotel) since we decided to ask for directions (note to self: ask for directions in the future, or you will get lost, AGAIN). For anyone visiting Budapest, you will love this area!
Getting closer to the city-ish portion of Castle hill, you will come across the most beautifully coloured houses! In Canada (on the West side), I’m not used to seeing such stunning and colourful houses, so I was in such awe when I walked by them!
And there were so many cute, little (and probably over-priced) cafés and restaurants!
