Today we took the bus to Kesthely, Lake Balaton. It took 2.5 hours from Budapest but we missed our stop and ended in Heviz and got a taxi to the apartment. It was a very wet and cold day. The apartment was at a traditional Hungarian Pension (Bed & Breakfast). It looked like a castle!
We went for a walk after we had settled in the apartment. On the walk we saw lots of cottages growing flowers and fruit trees with a ton of fruit on them. My dad envied them because at home all our fruit was eaten by possums.
We had a really late lunch at a restaurant close by. My mum ordered a light chicken salad but she got something like this.
My brother ordered Gypsy pork with bacon but the bacon was just skin and FAT.
Dad had goose liver (which he said was really good!) and a raspberry palinka (a really strong alcohol)
After lunch we went for long walk in the rain. On the way we saw huge chestnut trees lining the streets. They dropped fruits everywhere. There were also huge slugs the size of my middle finger. Every time I saw one I squealed like a crazy (they’re too yucky to take photo of!).
The lake was just 10min walk away but it was too wet so we just stayed in for the night.
