The cruise was supposed to leave at 7:30pm, I was at my hostel 2.8 km away from the boarding point and the maps said 29 minutes to the destination and it was 6:59 already!!
I thought I would walk faster and reach on time or may be take the 10pm ride, but I was solo and I didnt want to risk walking the lonely streets at 12pm for around 3km as the place near the boarding wasn't really crowded so I started off.
I stoped a few times,talked to few locals,took a few pictures and well, I missed the 7:30 cruise.
I callled on the number mentioned near the boarding point and he said there is one cruise that leaves at 8:45 and I can buy a ticket on board.
I walked a few kms from the city center so there wasn't much to do in the one hour but I had the most beautiful sunset in front of me and it was calm and relaxing so I decided to sit back, took small walks,video called home basically felt at peace.
When the cruise arrived it still wasn't dark so I began calculating if i should really take the cruise or just leave. I anyway enjoyed the sunset.
The ride wasn't really expensive and I walked a few kms and waited for an hour so I decided to go for it anyway and that was the best decision I took in budapest.
When the cruise it was still bright so I could see the whole city, beautiful architecture,amazing colours of sunset, soothing music, siping the welcome cocktail onboard.
When the cruise took a U turn and the sun sat, that's when the magic happened. The whole city lit up and the sky still had the sunset colours, I could finally see what I wanted.As they say everything happens for a reason, I was so glad I missed the 7:30pm cruise, I was so glad they had one at that time and i was so glad I took the decision to get onboard. Pictures won't do justice but here is one which might give you a little idea!! couldn't really take many as my battery was dying and was too occupied socking the beauty.
MAGICAL is what defines it.
