I hope you all had a nice Easter break, and hopefully managed to get some rest from your studies. My ‘break’ has certainly been busy! Over the past few weeks, I think I’ve spent more time at Warwick than I’ve spent at home (slight exaggeration, but that’s what it feels like!)! I had an assignment due yesterday, which has kept me busy. To say I was relieved to finally finish and submit it, would be an understatement! I’d like to say that I’m going to have a breather now, but with two 3000 word assignments looming, that’s not really possible. However, I have decided to give myself this weekend off!
My Easter break wasn’t all study though. I did manage to have some quality family time, which was great! This also included a lovely trip to Budapest (Hungary). I went there, at the start of the Easter holiday, for a 4-night break with my husband and daughter. For those of you who haven’t been, it’s a beautiful city. We had a great time. The public transport is fab; we travelled by metro, tram, bus, taxi and boat! The city is split into Buda and Pest, with the Danube flowing between them. We stopped on the Pest side, a short metro ride from the centre. The Pest side is flat, whereas the Buda side is hilly (not the easiest for sightseeing when you have a pushchair!). The food was lovely, the people were friendly and there was loads to see and do. Even though we were only there for 4-nights, we managed to take in a lot of sights. We did a free walking tour on our first full day, to get our bearings. After that, we were off exploring what Budapest has to offer. And, we certainly weren’t disappointed.
Some of my sightseeing highlights were: St. Stephen’s Basilica, the Royal Palace, the beautiful bridges, the street art, the Hungarian Parliment building at night and a boat trip on the Danube.
These are just a few of the highlights of the trip though. Narrowing it down to only 6 wasn’t an easy task!
Sadly, the trip now feels like a lifetime ago. However, I had a well-needed break from my studies, spent some quality time with my family, and I visited a new country. Plus, I’m now ready to take on the 3rd term!
Overall, I couldn’t have asked for a better Easter holiday! 🙂
