Some really nice articles. I wish I could remember exactly where I went in 1989 on my day trip to Balaton while staying in Budapest. I remember the water was warm, and the train trip didn't take too long, but can't remember much else of that day. The Hidden Budapest article is really good too. Wish I had read up more on Budapest when I went there, but I was a young, rather unorganized traveler in those days.

I like your excuse Acraven. It is going to be mine when talking about my earlier travels.
