When Austria and much of Europe began to slowly open up after Christmas, friends from my CrossFit gym and I began to plan some activities for the upcoming year. The first on our agenda was a trip to Budapest. On the last weekend of March, we piled into a few cars and made the short drive to one of Europe's most beautiful capital cities.
The entire trip only lasted two days but was nonetheless memorable. We strolled much of the city, taking in the must-see sites, historic locations, and hotspots. On Saturday evening, we went to an authentic Hungarian restaurant east of the city center. The small restaurant's staff was undaunted by this metropolitan group of English/German/Portuguese/Spanish speakers and seated us at their largest table in the back of the restaurant. As chronic CrossFitters, we did not fit fully into the two booths, so I took a seat at the end of the table and tried my best not to crowd the narrow walkway behind me.
