zagreb, croatia:

We woke up at the crack of dawn and boarded a train bound for Zagreb, Croatia - a short stop over while on our way to the northern coast of the country. 
Prior to visiting Zagreb, we had heard many positive things about the city - mainly that of it being an underrated and overlooked part of Croatia - which is famous for its glistening coastline and islands. 

I'm happy to report it was definitely worth the stop!

We spent a night in the grand Esplanade Hotel and enjoyed a relaxing afternoon wandering around the historic centre of the city. The streets of the upper part of the city in particular were beautiful and quaint with loads of character. It was also very quiet, with it feeling much smaller and village-like after the larger cites we had previously visited, which seemed rather perfect as it marked the start of a slower pace for the remainder of our trip.

So yep, I'd definitely rate Zagreb and recommend a visit if you're in the area.

next: the Istrian coast of Croatia.

budapest, hungary - part two:

More snaps from our time in Budapest!

We walked absolutely everywhere, trying to take in as much as we could. We loved wandering and made our way around the Jewish quarter, the inner areas of Pest and then over the Danube to hilly Buda, where we spent a balmy afternoon at the stunning Fisherman's Bastion. We sampled the many ruin bars, bought a picnic lunch from the huge Central Market hall and ate cake at the famous Cafe New York. We packed it in and cannot wait to return in the near future for more of gorgeous Budapest.

next: Croatia!
