This time we gave Pesht a miss and by the time Ms Pacifica returns from the monastery Girl Viking had arrived and let herself into the Buda apartment and proceeded to make herself familiar with the city.

Introducing  Girl Viking, who is a great writer, Aussie and currently living in Istanbul and serious world traveller, eco warrior and wine aficionado. Check out her blog at https://girlviking26.wordpress.com

Ms Pacifica and Girl viking met in Argentina some years ago on a bus and also endured a memorable (with some moments that we’d rather forget) trip to India and Sri Lanka a few years ago. More sedately Girl Viking also did the rail trial in NZ a couple of years ago.  Because Girl Viking can be a little bossy and is Aussie, Ms Pacifica likes to refer to herself as Madge sometimes with suitable mousey facial expressions, which irritates the S**T out of Edna. However Madge is also known to go ‘off duty’ sometimes. We did watch a quite elderly couple of English/ American? ladies on the bus bickering away at each other and wondered if that was us traveling in the future. Hopefully not.

We’ve also moved on from the shabby chic to just chic apartment living in Buda – although with many odd design features.

And so being in the heart of the old town we headed out for dinner and Palinka!
