#SoCS – Ent, ten, net

It is every entertaining to go abroad on holiday and see all the amazing historical and natural beauty sites that make other countries and places famous and interesting. We were recently in Budapest, Hungary and these are ten of the great places we visited.

Our internet is still giving us trouble as the service provider has not been to fix the cable. I am still having to use the back up wifi which is not as strong or quick. I did manage to get these 10 photographs uploaded which I thought was quite a feat of determination.

This post is for Linda G Hill’s Saturday Stream of Consciousness prompt. Linda is away so Dan Antion has graciously hosted the prompt this week. You can join in here: https://lindaghill.com/2019/09/27/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-sept-28-19/

  2. What a lovely tour! Thanks. A world in one city. Many layers of history.
    My uncle is Hungarian. He and his sister escaped the Russians but it was a long time before they saw their parents again. (K)

  3. A lovely city. Some related family hails partly from Hungary… though I can only wonder if any of their names would be found on that Willow Memorial. So many records from so many people were lost. There are still discoveries being made today about the people who risked their own lives to help others in distress.

    The photos are lovely. While I was away I finally got up early to take some photos of a sunrise. It might be awhile before get them down loaded. It was sort of an extended weekend after the official end of summer – It wasn’t that crowded where we stayed. But finding an open restaurant one evening was tricky. I think business weren’t expecting so many last minute visitors.

      1. Possibly still today as well as throughout history (still reading about Cleo – though not non-stop), once borders are changed the old is wiped out and replaced with the new. Other Egyptian Queens – just because they were women – their histories were literally chiseled off the stone by those Kings who felt they shouldn’t have been. Unfortunately paper is easier to destroy…

        I’m not usually a morning person. Though I’ve been getting up earlier these days… Hard to tell dawn from dusk if you have just the progression of photos without orientation 😉
