A Trip to Prague and Budapest: Day 8

My dad and I are on a Rick Steves Tour in Prague and Budapest. Today was our first full day in Budapest.

In the morning we took a bus to the Buda side of Budapest and toured the Castle Hill. There were several fancy buildings, but the statues were cooler than a lot of the buildings.


The Matthias Church is beautiful inside and out. The tile roof is amazing to see in person.


After we explored the castle district, we went to a cooking class to learn to make traditional Hungarian food. We drew slips of paper to determine which part of the meal each of us would make. I was on Team Dumplings. Dumplings are much easier to make than I thought. Bryce is excited that I will make him dumplings when I get home, but he’ll still be cooking whatever the dumplings are going in.

As part of the class, we were given cookbooks, so I will be able to learn more Hungarian recipes.

After we finished eating, we went to the Market Hall and had some free time. I spent most of the evening shopping with some of the other ladies on our tour, while dad went kayaking on the Danube with one of the other men.


In the evening we took a boat cruise on the Danube. It was chilly, but super pretty.

Dad is having fun.
