Day 24: goodbye Bratislava, hello Budapest!

Today we got up at 9:30 and checked out of our hostel in Bratislava but we left our luggage there for a few hours while we went to explore.

Our first stop was a geocache, we found one in a park which was right next to a blue church, so cute!

So I got my Slovakia stamp on the geocaching app and we made our way to the nicest place for burgers. The street food cafe. Omg it was so nice again. The jalapeño sauce is to die for, everyone needs to try it!

Bellies full, we were going to leave the street food place because it was 12:20 and the bus to Budapest was at 1, when I got a message from flixbus saying our bus was 25 minutes late. At least they told us! So we chilled for a bit longer and we were chatting about life decisions and I started to panic that I haven’t got anything figured out. It got to the point we’re we were walking around Billa trying to find a notebook and pen to mind map my life. Turns out Billa don’t do notepads.

After panicking about my life we went to pick up our bags and made our way to the bus. The bus came 25 minutes late like flixbus said and we chilled on the bus. Me reading and shannon napping. It took us about 3 hours to get there, but we got there in the end!

We then got the underground to the hostel, and found it pretty quickly. Very nice hostel, but as I said on the previous blog, a party hostel! We had to go and get some money out and we went to Unicredit. The ATM was inside and the bank was shut… and you swiped your credit card to get in! How cool is that!! Everyone seemed lovely. We settled in, got our towels, had showers, got ready for the night ahead and went out for food. We went to a small place that does pizza and pasta. We got a small bowl of pasta each and a slice of pizza each, yum! (Such a healthy day!)

We went back to the hostel, ready for the ruin bar pub crawl! We had some wine in the hostel and went to the hostel bar to start. The people seemed really nice. Only problem was, we went out without a jacket. I thought the bars would be inside, but no, they were outside. It was FREEZING. Between the first and second bar me and shannon ran back for coats, and met everyone at the second place. Problem solved!

We were judging people in one of the bars because in one of the loos was a wall full of lipstick kisses, like who kisses a toilet wall? Then shannon goes ‘do you have lipstick?’ Which I did, so of course we joined in. Grim but why not?!

I had an argument with someone about Trump and a weird guy followed shannon around for a bit and somehow someone spilt a drink down Shannons back but all in all a successful night! We’re both still alive!

Feeling rough today though!


P – Alphabet Dating

My time to drive this time as I knew where Roundhay park was and where we were going to park so Hayley met me at mine.

We made a quick stop at the co op before heading there for our picnic. We know we  should of fully made our own but we alway forget this, just like when we went to Eccup. And quite frankly, we didn’t have time!

We got there and had a little walk around the lake and discovered there was lots of geocaches  around but as we hadn’t planned to do any we had forgotten a pen so we could of gone but wouldn’t of been able to sign the book after, unfortunately.
We found a bench perfect for a picnic and filled our stomachs to the brim, we love our food! We also had home made Moana cupcakes, that weren’t a packet from ASDA, promise! A big plus of being here is also the amount of dogs you see!

We walked the rest of the way around waterloo lake before heading back home to get some jobs done with the promise that we will come back better prepared for geocaching.


H – Alphabet Dating

Harewood House! We had double H! Actually we had Hayley in Harewood House and we saw a Horse! So quadruple H! We tried to Hitchhike with a Hot ranger guy to add two more H’s but that didn’t work out, unfortunately. 

We set off at 9 and parked down wyke lane. I got attacked by trees while geocaching, literally brushing tree off me for a good half an hour after, I wouldn’t normally be bothered but I didn’t even find the geocache, just a small jar with a tiny bucket in it..

We did successfully find one geocache though so that was exciting. 

Why are the cows so friendly here?! A huge cow came up to us like it thought it was a dog or something and I’ve never been so scared. Cows are cute but in a fight I think a cow would beat me. 

Lovely walks around here though, especially if you park were we did because you have the views of the beautiful house but you don’t have to pay a penny. Lovely place! 

Time for work now!
