This weekend, we went to Budapest, Hungary! It was a lovely trip and we will both have lots of photos to post. While we work on editing and organizing them, I wanted to quickly post a little something. These pictures were taken from a moving bus on a very cloudy day, so they are not the clearest I've ever taken.
Nevertheless, they manage to capture the essence of the Slovak/Hungarian border. As both nations are members of the Schengen Area, they essentially have open borders. This means that their border check-points are not used for much. When you travel through them, they seem completely abandoned with the exception of a few cars. On neither of our journeys did we see a single person nor a light on.
