Destination: Prague, Czech Republic (2018 Edition, Part 2)

Old Town Square at night.

The next two days whilst in Prague were spent on taking day trips to other cities in the Czech Republic (respectively, Karlovy Vary and Olomouc– more on them in later posts). However, I made sure to save my last full day for Prague, so as to see as much as I could before I had to return to France.

Destination: Prague, Czech Republic (2018 Edition, Part 1)

View of Prague from the river (January 2018).

After partying a bit too hard in Budapest, I ended up taking it slow during my time in Prague following my stay in the former. In other words, Prague was my “recovery city,” as I spent my five nights re-exploring the places I’d seen from my first trip back in 2015— all the while checking out a few sites I hadn’t gotten to back then.

Destination: Esztergom, Visegrád, and Szentendre, Hungary

View of the Esztergom Cathedral (January 2018).

While enjoying my time in Budapest this January, I also decided to take a day trip to a few towns outside of the capital to see what the rest of the country had to offer. Considering that I only had a full day to visit, I chose to pick towns which were relatively close by for convenience. Public transport, i.e. bus, was to be my friend for the day, so I selected the towns of Esztergom, Visegrád, and Szentendre to visit, as they were the closest to Budapest for a day trip.

Heroes Square (January 2018).

Following my *wild* second night in Budapest, I managed to drag myself out of bed the next morning to leave from my Couchsurfing accommodation, as my host had originally allowed me to stay the first two nights– I would be staying with a friend of a friend for the remaining three nights, so I hit the road to meet up with him for the day.

Destination: Budapest, Hungary (2018 Edition– Part 1)

The Parliament (January 2018).

My January holidays kept on rolling after my time in Paris and Toulouse following the new year: I had only four days between returning and packing up once more, this time going international. More specifically, I was headed to Central Europe to revisit the beautiful cities of Budapest and Prague, all the while to explore a bit more of each of their respective countries.
