Description of Highlights:
Valley of the Beautiful Women (Eger) – Cool wine valley with about one hundred quaint cellars carved into the hills. There is a historical legend about the areas famous wine “Bulls Blood” (See Wikipedia) Very affordable wine prices and the option to fill your own container. The locals were carrying gas can type containers full of wine!
City of Friendly people & Amazing Architecture (Budapest) – We encountered many friendly and very helpful locals and travellers in this city. We stayed on the “Pest” side of the city as the “Buda” side is on the other side of the Danube River. I bet you didn’t know that it was two places!!! The architecture and historical buildings were quite spectacular and if you didn’t look up while walking the streets you would miss the most amazing features of the city!
