Danube Bend: Esztergom, Hungary

After exhausting Vienna (to the extent you can exhaust that city in 36 hours), we packed up the car and headed east to Hungary.  The direct route to Budapest wouldn’t have taken very long, but we wanted to see a series of cute little villages that are tucked into a bend of the Danube river.  Turns out, the villages aren’t that cute, and the little backroads take FOREVER.  That was something I hadn’t predicted.  It took us approximately 36 years to arrive at the first village, at which point QN and I were about dead; we visited a huge basilica and had a crappy lunch (that’s the downside of villages) before skipping all the rest of the villages to go straight to Budapest.
