Of all the amazing days I've had in Budapest, Saturday was by far my favourite. We went to a place called Budapest Park to see a Hungarian band called Irie Maffia (consisting of no less than TWELVE members!), and their concert was soooo much fun! I am also really greatful to have had Eni with me, because she made the experience even better - not only by being good company, but also because she automatically translated everything that I couldn't understand (recommendation: get yourself a local friend) :D Anyway, anyone who enjoys live music, a festival feeling and cheap beer: Go to Budapest (Park)!
After the concert we ate some street food, took part in a Hungarian bachelor party, sneaked into a club, danced in the empty streets of a sleeping city at sunrise etc etc
The day after (Sunday) I didn't really take any photos as I was pretty much struggling with being alive and being sad about having to leave this wonderful city and saying goodbye to the best friend/hostess I could have asked for
Since I had heard so much about a certain bar in Budapest, we spent most of Friday afternoon at Szimpla kert. This is probably the most famous ruin pub in Budapest, popular among both locals and tourists, and I could definitively see what all the fuss is about. On the same street as Szimpla kert, we found a street food market where I nearly had a heart attack when I saw what Eni had ordered for us. Langos is a traditional hungarian SNACK that Eni wanted me to try, and let me just tell you... I LOVE CHEESE, but this was basically a donut with way more than enough of cheese - even for me! And she didn't just buy one for us to share, she bought TWO. Köszönöm Eni, I am still in shock :D

I woke up to a sunny Budapest in Enis super cute apartment, located right in the center of the city (such luxury!). Due to a truly Hungarian welcoming (with an x amount of home made pálinka and wine) during last night, as well as some serious catching up that kept us awake until late (or early to be precise), we started our day with a pretty slow morning. When we finally left the house we went straight for lunch with some nice Hungarian girls; drank some fröccs and ate a cheap three course meal at nice garden restaurant. After the meal(s) we went for some sightseeing, and I must say that Budapest turned out to be even prettier than I expected. Before I end this post I want to recommend you to learn one phrase as you're probably going to need it from the very beginning of your stay in Hungary: Egészségére!
