We arrived in Budapest late yesterday and checked in the new Ritz-Carlton. What an AMAZING hotel.
They cater to runners, so we could not resist running first thing this morning 🙂
We ran down by the Danube of course, it was tempting to run across the chain bridge, but I had another mission…
Running around Margaret Island in middle of the Danube. We saw hundreds of runners running around it last night…
Why was it so popular? It has a 5K running track built into the island! (see the red rubber track material?) Brilliant!
I did have to stop and try and take a quick pic of the storks that were nesting on the island when I saw them. Sorry it was not a perfect picture, I was in running mode 🙂
Great morning warm-up. Off to check out more of the city!
Running around the world is always fun. Some of my other favorite spots:
- Suzhou China
- Dominican Republic
- St. Lucia
- Casearea, Israel
- Hanoi, Vietnam
- Hakone, Japan
