This is my husband and myself in Budapest, the first city we visited.
But let me go back to the beginning. We left on Friday, March 28th. First we flew from the Cincinnati Airport (which is actually in Kentucky) to Dulles Airport near Washington, DC. Then we flew from Dulles to Vienna, Austria on Austrian Air (operated by Tyrolean Airways). That flight was eight hours and 55 minutes and was very pleasant. I was happily impressed by Austrian Air. It was a beautiful, new, clean and comfortable plane. The attendants were impeccably dressed and very pleasant and helpful. Even the food was good!
Finally, we had a short flight from Vienna to Budapest. When we arrived in Budapest we were greeted by a guide from our cruise line. (We were booked on a river cruise along the Danube River from Budapest to Bucharest.) We went on a city tour of Budapest, where the above photo was taken. Here are more of the pictures I took that afternoon.
It is a beautiful city and this is just a taste. I have many more photos to post, from many more fascinating places. I will talk more about it too, when I have recovered from jet lag and flight fatigue a bit more.
