4th March 2015 – Budapest, Hungary
Like a fine line running through the heart of Europe, I took a stride. Long and stretched. From west to east. There are no regrets for now, because I will be back. And not even bothered by a distant airport. Not the least.
For the longest time, I thought Paris only had 2 airports : CDG and Orly. Today, I was to find out the 3rd one.
Well, technical, Beauvais-Tille airport is not in Paris. It is in Beauvais, about 85 km north of Paris. But Ryanair and other low-cost carriers have been advertising it as Paris-Beauvais. While the flights are really cheap from this airport, you have to also consider the fact that it takes 17 Euros to get there. That is, after you reach Porte Maillot in Paris, and take a connection bus.
But I did get there in time for my flight to Budapest. Another flight, another new destination, and I was in Budapest even before I knew it. From the Budapest airport to the city centre is another connection shuttle, which costs 13 Euros. Why do all these airports be so far away from the city centre?!
I reached by the evening, and checked into my hostel, which surprisingly was located in a beautiful historic building, and had an amazing courtyard.
Since I will be here for the next 7 days anyway, the only thing I clicked today was the courtyard.
