Summer holidays 2014: Budapest / Hungary – Abstinent symptoms…

After our short visit in Zagreb we arrived Budapest in the evening of the 2nd June. We choosed hotel ‚Nap‘ in the X. district where Kobanya sits. It is not luxury and the district seemed to be an working-class quarter but that didn’t matter. The only one that was really horrible was the coffee in the hotel. Our dive-free day before diving in Kobanya on 4th and 5th June we spent for finding a diving shop. Stefan needed to fill his bottle and Steffie needed a new mask because she had damaged it at the first dive at Isle Krk. Until then she kept her head under water with loans. After finding one and determining that some diving equipment is cheaper in Hungary and some not we went back to hotel. The name of the diving shop – it seems to be the only one in Budapest and we checked other adresses – is not considerable. Filling bottles is expensive and we didn’t feel welcome. Pity!

In the late evening we went to the capital and – sorry for your distress, Peter – to a shoe (shop) paradise. After our small stroll through different (shoe) shops we went to the direction of where according to our opinion it seemed to be the most restaurants: next to Szimpla Kert. The restaurant ‚Kazimir‚ we found towards synagogue. We loved the small garden in the backyard of the restaurant directly and had a good dinner there. After that, back to hotel? – No! We could go to Szimpla Kert, for one wine. It is next to, so… On a ‚Trabant‘ we sat down, smelt Szimpla Kert air and watched other people. Here and there something became different since our last visit. Good – it won’t never be boring there.

In the next morning we went eventual for diving in Kobanya – after water abstinence for two days…
