I’ve arrived in Budapest and am half exhausted from the last three weeks and half excited to be here. After figuring out the currency and taxi to the hotel, I was very happy to arrive at Le Meridien, where the rooms are modern and spotless and everyone speaks perfect English. Might as well be in Chicago (which I am happy about).
On the way to the hotel I realized that the language barrier will be much more significant than in Italy. Here they use the same letters as English but since it is not a Latin based language, I can’t read a word of it. It might as well be in Russian.I don’t think I’ve ever gone anywhere before where I haven’t done some research to prepare. I wanted this to be an adventure, albeit a relaxing one… So all I did was book a hotel in the center of town. I think I’ll take a bus tour tomorrow to see the sights, and just wander on my own the rest of the time. Now… a snack and a nap! – Posted from my iPhone in Rome
