Salzburg to Budapest
12.7.19 - 12.7.19 34 °F
Today's project was to get from Salzburg to Budapest by train! It was easy. Took a 10 minute taxi ride to the train station, bought some lunch to eat alone the way and boarded the train in one of the first class cars. It's about a 5 hour train ride to Budapest through farm country which is beautiful, although the weather was overcast and just about freezing. We arrived in Budapest a few minutes late, and our driver met us in the front of the train. I had read that most taxi drivers in Budapest don't speak much English, so having a fluent driver and car ready for the 20 minute drive to the Hilton on Castle Hill was wonderful. Even better was the Danube view room I had booked us in. Tonight it's dinner, then tomorrow we head to our river boat the AMAMagna. As we moved east, the sunsets earlier - today at 3:45pm!
