Cultural Tour of Budapest with Paul Lazenbury, Ewan And Alex
So Paul Lazenbury’s Cultural tour starts with the 7:59 train from Parkstone to Luton Airport, via London Waterloo. Then a quick flight from London Luton on WizzAir to Budapest, somewhere I’ve not been since 1998.
In fact, I am not sure that I have seen both Ewan Cairns and Alex Thomas for a beer since about 2004, following the mass exoduses from Nissan Europe. Alex returned to Amsterdam and joined Mitsubishi, Ewan moved to Bahrain with Toyota and I continued my globetrotting by joining TTS Europe. It’s crazy how quickly time flies. I have seen Ewan on many occasions, due to my frequent visits to the Middle East or flights routed via Dubai.
So why the trip?
My good friend Mr Ewan Cairns has finally decided to make an honest woman out of Maria and the day is planned for October. Now given the old tradition of looking after the condemned man, we have a stag do to attend. Given that none of us live in the same city, I suppose it did not really matter where we met. So some bright sparks chose Budapest, Hungary. What a place for a cultural tour.
So what do I know?
Ewan Cairns and Alex Thomas did arrived safely or someone has hacked Alex’s facebook. I have my passport, plane ticket (just double checked), the name and booking reference for the accommodation and a phone number to meet two of Ewan’s mates (Kieran & Neil) in the bar in Budapest Airport.. What could go wrong???
I will post photos and update this as the weekend goes along, if however you don’t hear from me again, something has go wrong..
So here we are managed to survive night 1, if fact it was couple of social beers, dinner, local show, then some wine. Sat with Outside in a little plaza, until 2:00 when it closed.
Saturday’s entertainment is 11:30 off to go shooting.
