I think traveling for New Years should be a new tradition.
Preferably somewhere warm but if not, I'm sure you'll have a great time.
Off i went to budapest and what a great time Laura and I had. It was freezing but walking around and seeing all the sites was a great way to stay warm.
As a treat to ourselves, we stayed at the amazing St George Residence, this was located in the Buda side of Budapest next to Matthias Church and Buda castle. The suite was amazing and was bigger than my whole flat.
When in Rome; as they say. So for food, we had some local delicacies and these included a Goulash soup and the Chicken Paprikash (as above). Both were okay, but i wasn't such a big fan of the Hungarian food- SORRY.
Two extremes here, above and below. Gerbeaud is a traditional coffee house in the centre of Budapest and here we both had desert and coffee (add a touch of alcohol). The very next day we went to the next extreme of McDonalds. It was just what we had wanted and we were very happy with our decision.
This was a really great holiday and start to 2015. Fireworks went off throughput the night on NYE, which kept us up later then we had wanted, but we didn't complain. Budapest is definitely a good destination for all and i am sure you will enjoy it.
