Ok, so heres the deal. We watch a programme called “Travelman in 48 hours” with the comedian Richard Ayoade. He reviews different places around the world in 48 hours. Now I haven’t really ever gave Budapest a second thought, however this programme highlighted the fact that theres is shed loads to do and see here, so within days me n Ang had booked our flights and holiday. Budapest here we come…

We didn’t get everything we wanted to see done, however I have noted it down as deffo coming back to this badass place! Below are some of the amazing things we experienced here. Have a click as this has some really cool hidden Gems.

Lavender Circus hostel Accommodation

This place was featured on the above show and is where  Richard Ayoade stayed, sp naturally had to stay here as our base. Imagine a hostel who has employed an artist to draw windows on the walls, elevators, and even stick tables and chairs onto the walls. This place was beyond Quirky, it was amazing! (click here)
