第一次欧洲自助游小记

因为行程准备得匆忙,让这一路上充满了挑战与新体验

--欧洲旅行很舒服:这次只有坐火车和巴士,Wien-火车-Budapest-巴士-Prague-巴士-Munich-火车-Fussen-火车-Wien
-火车-Balaton- -巴士-CK
火车和巴士都很舒服,巴士上有饮料供应;火车平稳,有桌子可以看书或是用电脑;因此我爱上了火车旅行,接下来的旅行,我决定只坐路上交通,不坐飞机或是轮船。

--时刻表可以绝对信任:无论是火车还是巴士,发车时间和到达时间都很准时,前后不会超过5分钟

--境内火车票可以到站后再买,一般不会出现卖完的情况;座位一般不用提前预定;

--最需要保护好的6样东西:护照、信用卡、钱包(包括学生证等证件)、手机、手表、相机

--信用卡要重视:网上预订的时候一定要注意有没有注明要检查信用卡才能使票生效的。这回我的信用卡被匈牙利的ATM机吞掉,后来在慕尼黑坐火车去富森的路上险些就过不了关,因为DB的网上电子票一定要结合信用卡才能生效。多亏会说德语的中国学姐的帮忙还有Nice的德国检票大叔“i wish you a plesant journey in Germany! ”

--不要随便使用自助机,包括售票机、ATM机等等,一是语言不通导致意思不清,二是规则不懂出现了问题就很麻烦。尤其是银行卡,一般用ATM机一定慎重!不管是买票还是取钱,还是要提前留出时间去窗口现场买

--提前做好充足的准备很重要!旅行准备分成三块:交通和住宿;其他生活基本准备,包括他国的通讯、语言、货币、插头转换器等;最后才是考虑游玩的景点、美食、纪念品等

--不要灰心!旅途中充满了不确定,这次我们一路上,遇到过多次惊险:在去Prague的巴士(开车前7分钟才找到那辆车!)、去Fussen的火车上被查票要出示信用卡(惊险过关!)、Fussen的青年旅舍(接待员态度极烂,且效率低下,还把我们预定的房间给别人了)、最后那趟回Wien的火车(走了1小时又20分钟要找到富森的火车站,刚好提前10分钟!)……等等,有一些是因为自己准备不充分,比如对信用卡重要性认识不够,对金融规则不熟悉,对地图研究不充分;有些是无法避免的,比如遇上素质低的接待员;有些是因为我们心性过于乐观,比如走路去火车站,高估了自己找路的能力和步行的速度等;

但是不管遇到什么困难,总会有解决的办法。总会遇到很多乐于帮助的人。且好人的数量总是大于坏人。这就可能是所谓的“船到桥头自然直,车到山前必有路”吧!

对于自己来说,在旅途中,重要的是保持一颗乐观向上的心态,怀着对美和善良的坚持,以及认真谨慎的心思,还有就是要“敢于开口”!就是豁出去嘛,没有什么丢不丢脸的,不懂就用路人,不要自己瞎找路(除非是已经提前做好了功课!)
既然出来交换,就是要敢于交流!乐于交流!

what i see in Budapest and Balaton

many little interesting things.. just write it down, for tips or simply for memory:)

-Old ladies in the subway are aways like to play "Sudok", the number game for middle school students as in my thought

-Transportation in Budapest is efficient and extensive-- that's true. however, since the city is quite small, and the places of interest are along the Donau River, i think it's quite possible to walk around.

-Subway is of long history, and also looks a bit older and thus not that comfortable compared with that in Austria.

-You cannot expect people can understand and say English at Hungary. it was not necessay for Hungarian to learn english at old times since Russia had the biggest influence at that times.

-Price is normally much lower than that of Wien, and also lower than that of Crezh, since i'm now in Prague.

First Stop: BUDAPEST

An amazing city in my eyes.. The pearl of Middle Age

sunny

We arrived in budapest on Sept.27th. the first amazing picture into my eyes is the building of the railway station, which is full of european style decorations and looks very magnificent! i really like the feel of the railway station, especially when i look up and feel the sunshine through the huge iron windows.

The guy in the information center is very very nice. really ready to help others and patient and also looks good:)

We are walking trough the streets aound the Donau, it's very convieniant to find the way to those famous places of interests, like Parliment, Chain Bridge, Royal Palace, Fisher Castle and Castle Hill..

The artitecture is really "middle-age feeling". it says that Hungary was gived in at enemy's attack during the second world war, therefore the buildings survived during the war time. who can tell if the action of "give in" is beneficial or not?

The hostel we lived is small but cozy. however, the distric seems some bit "dirty" and thus sceary at night.

The next day, 9.28, we went to a small town near Balaton Lake, Sifok. it's beatiful and peaceful, though we are taught to be care of theft there. the visitors are not many, maybe it's because of the season is not for holidays. i like the feeling when we are on the sailing boat and enjoy the pure scenery of Sky and Lake.

During the two days in Budapest and Sifok, Balaton, we met lots of problems, however, everytime we would meet someone who is willing to help. what's the most important lesson i learned is that: Nothing will be unconqured if we put our effort into it and the godness of Luck will be my side if i really do the right thing and try out my best.
