Down to Szeged, Hungary! — How quickly things can change!

Hello, my fellow world travel enthusiasts! I am reporting from Budapest, Hungary!

Okay, so here we go — our final days in Hungary and Europe — WOW!

Our first class Eurail ride was a beautiful 50’s coach, in impeccable condition! We even had wifi!

We took a train from Budapest down near the border of Serbia, to Szeged, which held great surprises for me!

Walking to the hotel and water slide park

Waterslides!

Five stories high!!!

Yes, The biggest waterslides in Europe!

One of my favorites was shaped like a bowl, or a teacup when you got to the end of this really long slide you would go round and round and round until you fall through the bottom.

The red and orange “tea cup”

My parents and I tried them all out – although both of them did not like the teacup. You ended up dropping about six feet, head-first, a bit out of control  🙂

There were more than 10 huge slides and the whole park!

There were slides that started five stories up inside and then went outside, then came inside, and back outside where you splashed in the water at the bottom!

See Mama — Splash-a-rooni!

BTW – Can you say this street name?

The hotel, recommended by our friend, Andy, was awesome, too!

They had a wonderful spa that my parents took advantage of, and also, a bowling alley that we enjoyed.

STRIKE!!

STRIKE!!!

Szeged was a very nice and quiet town and the people seemed happy!  Shocking is that today, just a few weeks later, we would not have been able to go to Szeged or enjoy Budapest the way we did, with the refugee crisis in that part of Europe now!
