As I mentioned previously, this past weekend, I went on a scavenger hunt with SELTI. Together with the head teacher, we put together a list of things teams had to complete on the hunt. Some items were things people had to do, others required you to go there and snap a photo. The team with the most points won.
Because I put together the list of things to find or do, I wasn’t eligible to win, but I still wanted to participate. I love scavenger hunts! We had really bad timing though – we managed to organize the hunt just when summer was kicking in. Imaging running around in 30C+ degree weather in the middle of the day. Not so fun. By the end of the day, I was utter exhausted. But it was such a fun day! I discovered some new things and rediscovered old places. I’m constantly surprising myself at how well I know the city (at least the tourist sites!).
Every photo you took needed at least a team member in the photo which is why I’m in a lot of these photos. We started off the day at Hero’s Square where we were looking for statues of men on horses (and a man under a horse!). Hover over the photos for my comments on the photo.
Then it was off into Városliget (City Park) in search of a statue hidden in the shadows of a castle, but first, an encounter with a boat.
Then to the center of the city: Deak Ferenc Ter.
Then up to the castle district, before going to the Cogwheel Railway.
Our final stop? Parliament to do some cartwheels and a quick visit to the only Communist statue remaining outside Memento Park.
In the end, we collected 93 points. Not bad for running around in the heat for 3 hours. I’ve learned a little more about the city and it was a fun afternoon spent outside. Till next year!
