Budapest River Ride – 12/12/15

Yesterday we rode the amphibious bus “River Ride” around town and then INTO THE RIVER! Whilst it was a pricey excursion, it kept us warm and it was definitely amusing.

Take note of the moment in the video where the iPhone drops down from the windowsill of the bus and under the seat… Thankfully BK fishes it out for me and we return to regular programming as if nothing had happened. Smooth as!

Video shot on iPhone 6, using Hyperlapse. Edited in iMovie. Music by Simian Mobile Disco, “Ortolan”.

Tired musings

If I was an Egyptian or Roman goddess, I’d order Budapest water for my skin and Melbourne water for my hair. The pink dye has gone from my hair already but my eczema has also gone and I believe the term is “glowing”.

Also if I was a goddess I probably wouldn’t have such sore feet because my minions would carry me everywhere. They’d be very tired minions. Or very strong ones.
