After about a 1 hour delay at Gatwick, the plane finally took off for Budapest. First impressions, they all drive like maniacs across roads that have senn better days. Hooning around on cobbled roads, not a good feeling!
I did arrive safely at Allaine's and after a quick catch up we headed off to a 16th century bath house. It was ladies day - so no men allowed. Apparantly women have only recently been permitted to use this bath house. Hard to describe but it had several different baths and one main central one, along with sauna rooms at various temperatures. The water is from a natural spring and contains many healing minerals. Quite a magical place, built between 1568 and 1578, so used continuously for many centuries. Budapest has many of these dotted around the town.
Weather much warmer and more humid than England.
