It's going to be a long one, people. But well worth it, because you see, we left Budapest. We even left Hungary and it wasn't to go home! Frankie had been wanting to take a train to somewhere, anywhere, ever since the first time we went to Europe. Now was the time! Rick Steves (have I mentioned how much we like him?), mentioned several day trips from Budapest and we looked at them all and decided we would add a trip to another capital city to our growing list.
We decided to hop on a train and travel to Bratislava, Slovakia! Don't worry if you don't know where that is. Honestly, I didn't even know Slovakia was a country before we decided to go there. Yes, that was embarrassing to admit, but hey, as I told many people, a lot of Americas are really really bad at geography! Let me help you out some by showing you a map and it may even help you see where Budapest is located as well. (I was surprised at the number of people that thought it was in South America or Africa!) I still have to search to find it on a map, but now I know the general direction to start looking!
Frankie liked his "fine dining" on the train in Europe! (Hey look it's Rick Steves!)
It was Slovakia's final revenge to this man, a lifetime of people laughing at him. By this time we were hungry again. Didn't we just eat on the train?? We decided to eat at Roland Restaurant Cafe in the Main Square. This was taken from inside the cafe through they window we sat at.
We got out before anyone was the wiser! Along our path we managed to find a grocery store to go in and look around. I was happy to find the tortillas (I do worry about places where there are no tortillas) and found it hilarious that they were with the other "ethnic" food.
We started back towards the main tourist area of town and Frankie decided to share some of his Red Bull he bought at the grocery store with a random statue. I think the statue appreciated it! She even got the buzzed look from all the caffeine of the Red Bull!
