Our Trip To Lake Balaton in Hungary

I realised that I didn’t share my holiday snaps from our trip to Hungary. If you didn’t already know G is Hungarian and we are lucky enough to be able to visit family and have somewhere to stay when we are out there. I’ve been to the capital Budapest a few times before and also to a city in the south called Szeged but finally this year we visited Lake Balaton, which has been on my holiday wishlist for a while, it’s a 50 mile long lake situated in the west of the country, boasting beautiful views, food and being the largest lake in central Europe.

We went in late September after the rush of the summer had died down but the weather was still brilliant, on our second day the temperature hit over 40 degrees which I have never experienced before. I’m not the best person for soaring heat but the air was clear and the breeze that swept through most days which made it very comfortable. I am now craving this kind of heat for my summer holidays next year!

We stayed at G’s mum and dad’s apartment for one night and then travelled to a small town called Balatonföldvár, which is on the south side of the lake, and stayed in a wonderful guest house. The truly magical thing about Lake Balaton is all the tiny hidden gems along it’s coastline, there a tiny cafes which sit close to small beaches, fishing spots as well as their bigger man made sand beaches. It also boasts beautiful harbours and promenades which I really want to visit on the north side of the lake next year. The water is very shallow, so you can walk a few metres, maybe more and it still be knee deep on you, I saw people so far out walking and then suddenly they drop and be swimming, it was the most bizarre thing I have seen. But this does mean it’s great for kids, Rose was in her element walking in the water and splashing about, even I, a very non swimmer, enjoyed it.

We did a lot as a family and most of which I either don’t want to share the pictures, as let’s be honest some privacy is needed and also I simply put my camera down and enjoyed the time away with everyone. The few pictures I do want to share are like my <a href="http://www.georgiapetite cialis mit rezept.co.uk/2015/12/a-country-walk.html” target=”_blank”>country walk post, they aren’t edited in any way and are some of my favourites from the whole trip.

The last two photos I needed to share, I swear Hungary do the best crepes and you can get an array of fillings from jam to a sweet ricotta! But my favourite is Nutella, boring I know. You can get crepes and other street/market food from every corner of the city which is pretty amazing and if I lived there I would be the size of a house. I also wanted to show you the cool graffiti I saw near G’s parents place, I don’t usually photograph this kind of thing but I love it. Oh and yes that is a real turtle in one the photos, my brother in law saved from the beak of a duck and we then set him free, after pictures of course!

    I urge you to go forth and explore, the city Szeged to the south is beautiful and has a great nightlife, obviously lake Balaton and there is also picturesque mountains to the north which is great for wine tasting and going to spas!

    The only place I know in Hungary is the Budapest but this one looks really wonderful.. and considering that it is one of the largest lakes in central Europe, this must be a very interesting site to visit!

    I love going on staycations where there's a lake or a good view of a body of water. It calms my nerves. How I wish I have enough travel funds to visit Europe.

  20. 10th March 2016 / 10:15 am

    Your pictures are really beautiful. Sounds like you had a great time. I especially liked the pancakes!

    I'm really a huge fan of street arts, so I appreciate that graffiti. Looks like a nice day by the lake.
