Even though we only stayed in Bratislava Slovakia for 1 night, we really got the smaller city feel and the feel for Slovakian culture. We really liked the old town, as they call it. We didn't have a reservation for a hostel and we ended up finding a gem! It was nice and close, clean and Stef and I got a separate part of the room to ourselves. We decided that we needed a break from architecture and constant walking so we decided to check out the shopping Bratislava has to offer. Lets just say we liked.... very much! Once we were done shopping, we caught a flick Married in Vegas which we absolutely loved and couldn't stop laughing throughout. We definitely needed a long period of time with constant english conversation :)
The next day, we headed to Budapest where we met this couple David and Katie from the U.
Our 3rd day, Katie, David, Stef and I rented a car and drove to the country outside of Budapest to check out some small towns since we were getting sick of the big cities and wanted a feel for the culture. Even though it was a very difficult task to physically get the rental car, it was a great day consisting of hiking up this huge mountain to a castle where we could overlook the wonderful scenery, great food in between towns where we had some VERY traditional food and just toured around and checking out the towns in general.
We are really enjoying Budapest and decided to stay 1 extra night so we could get a chance to tour the Hot springs and get this mud bath we have been dieing for :) We leave in the morning on Saturday for CROATIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
