Today we went to some thermal baths called Gellert Baths, with Luca's dad Brett. He said that there were actual hot natural springs under Budapest, which supply the water from deep underground. There are heaps of minerals in the water which some people say are good for your health. You can read more about this on their website, which is gellertbath.hu The description says that it's like having a bath in a cathedral. It was! After getting into our bathers, we went into the first room. It was incredible! There were 20° pools, 36° and 38° pools, and 40° pools, plus steam rooms, dry saunas, wet saunas that were as Hoyas 55° and two cooler plunge pools, which were 15° and 18°. After a 55° and a 50° sauna, these were freezing! It was great, then when we thought we'd found everything, we found a whirlpool! The water jets pulled us along, they were so strong! Wil and I tried to swim against them but we were pulled back. It was actually hard to get out, the currents were so strong. Dad had to drag us out, I wish we got there earlier so we could have stayed longer.
