The trip begins


Well the journey down from Lincoln to was nice and easy with no traffic to contend with. Arrived at the Travelodge which is in a great location just the other side of the M11 from the airport. Must it was very nice indeed, up long drive off a country lane to what looked like a large country house. It was the a quick check in and head off to the nearby town of Bishops Stortford for a meal. We found a very nice Indian restaurant called Shadona which I would thoroughly recommend. I will do a full review on Yelp on my return.
Well it’s up. bright and early for the short drive to the airport for our two hour flight to Budapest. More later:

Anniversary trip to Budapest


Well I can finally reveal to all the destination of our next trip. We are off to the city of Budapest. Like I said on the previous post it is or was a surprise trip for my wife to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary, I say was as by now she knows where we are going. Now anyone who reads my blog knows I have a passion for travel and love visiting major cities, so after doing some reasearch on the city and the fact I found some rather enticing flight prices I decided that Budapest was the place for us. Now like I said I have done some reasearch on the city and saved a collection of various websites with tips, sights and some info on getting around on my Pearl Trees page just click the link to find out more. One of the sights I will be looking forward to is visiting is the parliament building, now I am not politically minded at all but I am a lover of architecture, and whilst looking at some of the sights to visit the Hungarian parliament came up in a top ten list of sights to see. Now a top tip I found when I was reading a review of the city on Trip Advisor was that if you contact the parliament building via email at tourist.office@parlament.hu and give them the dates you would like to visit, they will reply which in my case was within a 24 hours with a lovely official confirmation letter stating that we would be welcome to the Parliament building for a guided tour in English completely free of charge as we were EU citizens, so you can avoid the queues which apparently can be quite lengthy.

Thats about it for now but watch this space for updates and no doubt the very many photographs
