The day of the trip came at last. We travelled by train from Zagreb Central Station on Wednesday, March 19th 2014. The trip was relaxing although it took seven hours, and we couldn't wait to arrive at our destination. We stopped at many stations and even saw the Lake Balaton, or how the Hungarians like to call it, their "sea".
Finally, we arrived in the village Pusztamerges, about an hour and a half drive from Budapest. The first day we presented our traditional Croatian dishes and we were all very nervous. But we got over it soon. We also participated in a cooking competition and made Hungarian gulash and pancakes, all by ourselves. We were placed forth!
The second day we went on a tour of the city called Szeged. The town was beautiful. I was most impressed with the story about how all of the buildings were renovated after the great flood that happened in the late 19th century. After the tour we visited their Aqua Park. We had a lot of fun there.
On the last evening we had a big dinner together and danced with everyone.
I really liked the trip. It was interesting, informative and fun.
