Oct 18, 2007 - Sopron, Hungary: Princesses for a day

After experiencing the Hungarian city life, we decided to get out into the country and experience another side of Hungary. We went to the little town of Sopron, where we walked around all morning and dont have much to report other than our yummy breakfast at a German place and the Hungarians curious habit of saying "hello" everytime they mean to say "goodbye." This can make for quite a hilarious conversation actually. Anyway, the highlight of this little corner of Hungary was staying in our own palace for the night. The big yellow place...

Jul 30, 2004 - Sopron, Hungary

We started the side trip with a train ride to a Hungarian city on the Austrian border. It is super cute and is just off the tourist track enough to make it feel like a find. We spent the night there, having dinner on the main square with live music playing next to us. Moving on had a few problems, though. First the train that we were planning on taking did not run on Sunday, so we had to take a later one. Ticket office was also not open on Sunday. Once the conductor came to check on/sell tickets there was a problem. He wanted Euros...
