Next day, it was back to Vienna after a stop at the Budapest Market. This place opens at 6 in the morning and it’s huge! All the locals shop here for everything. The upstairs has a lot of tourist goods and fast food, but the downstairs is fruits, vegetables, meats, spices and baked goods.
Wouldn’t you love to shop here everyday?
We each got a pastry and since Hungarian is a beautiful but difficult to understand language, I ordered using my usual method of point and smile. I thought I was getting an apply tart but it was onion! Sweet-savory though and delicious.
Back on the train and it’s a long ride to Vienna – about 5 hours. We went to dinner on the river and upon coming out we circled around this amazing church.
Here’s where our trips split – Steve goes sight seeing and I head off to my conference every morning. In the evenings we catch back up.
Seriously, is there any city more beautiful than Vienna?
So clean and orderly and beautiful.
More to come …
