Budapest Beckons

Posted on

Being British, we’ve come to accept train delays as inevitable in one way or another, in particular on long journeys.

To our dismay though, our train started pulling away with the vast majority of our luggage on-board as we were queueing, only to reappear 20 minutes later with more carriages attached at one end! By the time we reached Budapest (significantly later than planned) our train had at least three times the number of carriages than it started with!
