As promised, here’s part 2 of my Budapest post….
I really really wanted to visit the floating village at bokodi hűtőtó. I did some research on it and it was just stunning!
It was a one-day trip to the lake, but it was met with so many difficulties that I regretted suggesting to go.
We got lost TWICE heading to bokodi itself, and when we reached, I was quite disappointed. It was nothing like how people described it to be or anything like the photos I saw. Really an utter disappointment. We then missed the bus back to Budapest and the next bus was in 2 hours. There were no restaurants for us to sit and wait and it became too cold to wait at the bus stop. I felt like I was in a nightmare, the temperature had dropped and I was shivering like mad. We were all in a foul mood.
Luckily, the owner of a gas station was nice enough to let us hitch a ride to the train station. So very thankful for him and his girlfriend. Plus, they were so very friendly to us.
So yes, this day trip was a complete failure!
On a better note, our last evening in Budapest was spent at Aria High Note Skybar, where we got to enjoy some drinks and tapas and watched a beautiful sunset. It was a great way to not only end our trip in Budapest, but our 3-week stay in Europe as well.
I highly recommend going to this skybar. It’s really worth it. Plus you get such a beautiful view of St Stephan’s Basilica. You won’t regret it!
