On The Way

fisherman's bastion, Budapest, Hungary, travelOn the way to the Fisherman’s Bastion, on the Buda bank of the River Danube,   you can ride in a beautifully decorated old,  wooden elevator to the top of Castle Hill. I took these photos as we slowly made our ascent. In the distance, you can see one of eight very different bridges that span the Danube.218 215

This is what awaited us at the top.

    • Thanks, Dave. The snow had a lovely effect, visually. I only had my mobile phone with me. The camera in it is okay, but not great. I must learn how to use my husband’s super-macro-optical-zoom-but-too-complicated-for-me Olympus. 😉

    Great photos, Jean (I’d have had white knuckles, terrified that the funicular would slide back down…..). Did you get to any of the thermal springs/baths in Budapest and would you recommend it as a place to spend a few days?

    • Funicular! That’s the word I tried to recall when I described the elevator. It wasn’t that scary, I was too busy photographing the fabulous view, my phone camera doesn’t do it justice. I would definitely recommend a city break to Budapest, but you would need at least four or five days, there’s so much to see. We decided against the baths, as we only had a few days there. We did go to visit one of them, but opted for hot chocolate instead (it was January, after all, lol).
