We arrived at Budapest Keleti Train Station on a cold, rainy afternoon after spending some 3 hours on the train from Vienna. Our original intention was to head to the House of Terror but we were soon put off by the snaking queues that extended beyond street level. Eventually, we settled for a nice lunch at Fridays. The ribs and salad portions were generous and the price was a fraction of what I was paying in Oslo. We had a great dining experience.

After our meal, we took a ride on the iconic Metro Line #1 to Deak Ferenc Terminal Station. This was Budapest's downtown core where the glitzy malls and hotels are located. We spent sometime walking around but the rain and unforgiving weather proved too overwhelming for us. Days of travel have certainly took a toll on our bodies and we gathered that we needed ample time to recover for the rest of the afternoon in order to welcome another brand new day tomorrow.
