Last night we arrived in Vienna at about 7 pm. As we were standing in line for a Bankomat in the train station in Vienna, we literally bumped into our roommate from Prague. Derek did not have a plan for a hostel, so we told him to follow us to our hostel where surely he […]

Budapest in the Evening

We arrived in Budapest just in time for the rain to come down on us during our walk to our Hostel. Not the greeting we were looking for, but a welcome temperature drop we did not mind. We bumped into Christy on our way through the grey streets of Pest. The hostel is seemingly in […]
