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.
Growing up listening to the music of The Carpenters, he decided to name this blog Budokan in remembrance of their Live at Budokan Tour in Tokyo in May 1974. He finally made a trip to the Nippon Budokan in September 2017, 43 years after the Carpenters held their 18 sold-out concerts in Japan!
Hailing from the tropics, Budokan is fortunate to reside in Singapore where jetsetting around have become very affordable. His greatest passion lies in cultivating his lifetime career of travelling, blogging and tour guiding.
