It was time to pack up and leave Budapest--which was no small task given our vast amount of gear.
Fortunately, Miles lead the way.
We said farewell to the Grand Hotel on Margaret Island...
...and took a final drive along the banks of the Danube.
The Boxing Day traffic was light, and we had much smoother sailing on the way back to Munich than we did on the way over. The highlight of our journey was a stop at Landzeit, a chain of Austrian Autobahn restaurants that we discovered on the first leg of our journey.
If a more splendid buffet can be found on earth, you would certainly have to exit the highway to find it.
