So I didn’t want to go out last night but ‘peer support’ from the staff persuaded me to. It started by myself thinking, I’m just going to get a body shower, because it’s been a long day, but I don’t want to wash my hair. I just automatically got in the shower and started washing my hair, like I was on autopilot. I didn’t even realise until I already had a head covered in shampoo. How annoying!
So I met shannon back at the room and I say ‘I’ve just had an accidental shower! And she went downstairs to get me a hairdryer and told everyone about my accidental shower. So I got a few strange looks when I came downstairs later on!
We had some pre drinks and played some drinking games with the others before heading to retox next door. One of the main reasons we wanted to go out was to see the jäger train. Guess what we missed. The jäger train! But it was still a good night nonetheless!
Shannon went to bed a little bit earlier than me. Me and a staff member, Damo, tried to wake her up and fed her McDonald’s chips (they weren’t even my chips, sorry whosever chips we stole!) but she didn’t, so me and Damo went back to retox, but it shut soon after so I ended up in bed too.
This morning we felt like crap. But we still wanted a productive day. We got up, and had scrambled eggs on toast. We first went to the bank to change some of Shannons money because she has old money. The bank was so warm I nearly threw up in there but luckily I didn’t! Then we booked tickets for the spa and for the boat party tonight. All you can drink! (I know I’m contradicting myself, but hopefully tonight we’ll be okay enough).
We then walked all the way to the zoo about 25 minutes away. The zoo was fab! They had everything! Lions, elephants, sloths, armadillos, meerkats, EVERYTHING! (Except alpacas which I was annoyed about). Half way through the day we went up some stairs and there was a slide that we decided to go down instead of the stairs. What a mistake. It was the fastest deadliest slide I’ve ever been on. I have a big bruise on my elbow, on the video you can hear the bang on the way down…
After the traumatising slide, we carried on with the zoo and saw lovely animals and a sea lion show and a gorgeous baby elephant!
We had a sandwich in the cafe before heading to our next stop. The Széchenyi baths. It was lovely! I thought it was weird though that we were in the baths about 200m away from an elephant and rhinos and stuff but it was such a good few hours! We just chilled and chatted and went around and around the whirlpool for ages. We also ended up doing an accidental water aerobics class, which was weird but fun!
When we got out we looked like prunes! We got dressed and walked back to the hostel, going to the pasta/pizza place again for food. We had lasagne and a slice of pizza. I was so full! We then broke our rule and had a coffee after 5pm. But we really needed it. As I mentioned earlier, we booked boat party, and right now, we felt dead. So we had an iced coffee and walked back to the hostel. Now we’re going to the boat party. I wouldn’t say we’re ready for it, but we’re ready as we will ever be!
We had to uncork a wine bottle and we actually had to both do it. One holding the bottle, one pulling the corkscrew. We’re too tired for this. But roll on tonight!
