Rise and shine in Budapest...............

 Early morning goodbye to beautiful Budapest.....looking 
across the Danube from the heights of Buda on Castle Hill, 
to the Parliament building on Pest's shoreline.

From our hotel room window, next door to 
St. Matthias' Church on Buda's Castle Hill........the stunning 
sunrise across the river to Pest.

We've just arrived in Vienna by train. The weather has 
changed, thick fog hanging over the city, 
definitely not conducive to taking photos today. 
Sunshine expected for tomorrow though....fingers crossed. 

Not complaining though - a tap at the door just 
brought a smiling Austrian bearing gifts. 
An early Birthday celebration for this evening - thanks 
to Hilton Hotels!

P.S. Just enjoyed a piece of cake. They were right, 
nothing can beat Viennese pastries, this is marvelous, wish
I could share it with you!!!


  1. I loved my visit to Budapest a few years back - we visited the Zoo and the Terror House among other great places. Also the out-of-town sculpture park

    Oh the cake - I'm salivating like a puppy as I imagine those silky layers!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Exquisite images of day breaking in beautiful Budapest - the tile work on the church roof is quite similar to the Burgundy designs... lovely.
    I can't wait to see Vienna through your eyes so I'm praying the fog will lift for tomorrow's photo shoot!
    Much love and warm birthday hugs
