On The Road Again with Debbie

Budapest, Hungary

Budapest, Hungary's capital, is bisected by the River Danube. Its 19th-century Chain Bridge connects the hilly Buda district with flat Pest. A funicular runs up Castle Hill to Buda's Old Town, where the Budapest History Museum traces city life from Roman times onward. Trinity Square is home to 13th-century Matthias Church and the turrets of the Fishermen's Bastion, which offer sweeping views.

I stayed at the Hilton on the Buda side of Budapest and loved the property and area which is the heart of the Castle District. I felt like a princess living in a castle. The charming, magical, historical area that I enjoyed walking and exploring every day.

Activities in Budapest

Budapest is beautiful, plenty of history, safe, tons of things to do, tasty food, good beer, and budget-friendly! If you are visiting to do a meeting or going on vacation you can walk across the Chain Bridge...hire dancers to greet your attendees in an outdoor space....take a ride in mini cars, motor bikes and my favorite a Tuk Tuk!!! Amaze your group by going to a winery for lunch or dinner and of course lots of wine tasting!! Best of all you end your day with a beautiful sunset. Budapest is the whole package!!!


Szentendre is a Hungarian town on the Danube River, north of the capital, Budapest. It's known for its baroque architecture, churches, colorful houses and narrow, cobbled streets. The main square, and the alleyways around it are lined with art galleries, museums and shops. Just off the square, the 18th-century Greek Orthodox Blagovestenska Church has elaborate decor and an ornate partition screen.

Our group took a boat ride to this charming little town and we loved it. I enjoyed walking the cobbled streets and shopping the quaint local shops and looking at the hanging umbrellas and light shades. This is a great off-site destination for a group to do a team building activity such as decorating vases, making art, etc. which can be done inside or outside on the cobble stone streets. I loved this little village and I would recommend to take this day tour. You might even catch a rainbow!!
