Day 228 – Budapest, Hungary

Ryan and I did a TON of walking this afternoon while exploring Budapest. Under the scorching sun, we crossed the beautiful Szechenyi Chain Bridge to see the Parlament building up close and personal (what a remarkable structure!). We continued wandering throughout this interesting city for over five hours. On the way back to our hotel we rode on the historic Line 1 (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) which is the second oldest metro in the world. Line 1 was originally drawn by horses and was created to transport people from the city to the City Park for the Big Bash in 1896. Quote of the day: “I’ve never ridden on a World Heritage Site before”. That’s my comedian husband for you…
