We took the 23:00 bus to Zagreb to get in for 04:50 and, after a very small amount of sleep on this 5 hour bus, we had a 2 hour layover in Zagreb before catching the 07:00 bus to Budapest. We headed to McDonald’s for breakfast during our layover but we didn’t realise just how far away it was! Though, we did get 2 sausage & egg McMuffins and 2 cappuccinos for 20KN each. That’s about £2 each!!
Once we (rushed) back to the bus station, the bus was arriving, so we jumped on, very tired… Pretty OVER tired at this point, to be honest… And ate our breakfast. We managed to stay awake for a while, but Kim fell asleep just before we had to wake up and go through passport checks at the border, which took about 2 hours!
We got through the border and headed on and eventually arrived in Budapest!
We had the clear instructions on our phone on how to get to our accommodation, which was a tram and then a bus, but we realised that we had stopped in the wrong place, so we had to walk for quite a way, before realizing quite quickly that we had no clue where we were!
We managed to find the place we are staying! We are staying with a lovely couple that Curtis’ mum works with. They have just moved to Hungary and are kind enough to let us stay with them during our short stay in Budapest.
So far, Micael & Agota have been more than welcoming and it’s been wonderful spending some time with them!
We went for a walk to a park where there was a lot going on! We got a few pictures, but the real adventures start tomorrow!
