Passport to Adventure The ‘Good Life’ in Hungary
Spas, equestrian centers, wineries &the splendors of Budapest make Hungary ideal for 5 star travel on a budget. Thermal waters, enjoyed by the Romans and Turks, continue to ooze up through the earth in spas all over Hungary. Romans also get credit for bringing the first grape vines to Hungary. Julie &Mark sample the legendary wines of the Tokai region and cycle through vineyards and medieval towns. The early nomads who settled Hungary were famed horsemen. This tradition is carried on in the Great Plain region where costumed ‘csikos’, or cowboys, perform amazing feats on horseback. For those serious about their riding, there are first rate stables and arenas throughout the country. Mark &Julie get a taste of old European elegance in cosmopolitan Budapest, where an exquisite meal prepared by a Michelin rated chef can still be enjoyed by the frugal traveler!
