Day 1 – Budapest

I could feel it, this is gonna be legendary. So I took took bus from Amsterdam Central to Eindhoven airport. It was sunny and shining out there. I could see happy people all around walking around and enjoying sunshine.

I took the flight from Eindhoven and sat with two high school kids, they came to visit their friend in Utrecht, we talked briefly about life in Amsterdam and where and why I was headed.

After getting off from the plane I took bus 200 that drops you at first metro station. I had to take two metros to reach my apartment. Metros are different here compare to Central Europe.

My metro journey ended at Hósök Tere. Hősök tere (English: Heroes’ Square) is one of the major squares in Budapest, noted for its iconic statue complex featuring the Seven Chieftains of the Magyars and other important national leaders, as well as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. After getting out of Metro station, I was here

I walked around the square and took some pictures and then started to walk towards apartment. On the way I grabbed pizza which by the way was crappy.

Weather was quite decent. For some reason the weather reminded me of winters of Karachi. I closed my eyes and the cool wind and sound of tires on road made me feel like as if I am in Karachi.

I walked a little bit more and then I reached apartment and here is how room looks like
