Hello From Budapest

Having a great time, wish you were here (this particular here is the Parliament of Hungary, which is very ornate).

Tonight is for packing and tomorrow is for traveling, and I’ll have a fuller update of my adventures once I’m home. The short version is that our trip to London and Budapest was everything we wanted it to be, and really could not have gone better.

That’s it, see you again once we’re back to Ohio.

  1. Davida Chazan – Jerusalem, Israel – I have been writing on-line content (reviews and articles of all kinds) since about 1998. Since 2013, I've been specializing in writing book reviews. Aside from my blog, I write reviews for Book Browse, Curious Book Fans, and have a blog on the Times of Israel on-line newspaper. If you have a book you want me to read and review, please send me a brief summary (including genre and age group of the target audience) and if I'm interested, I can accept ARCs in all formats including PDF, ePUB and mobi.

    Yes, a very lovely place to visit – but their coffee is HORRID!

  2. Budapest is on my (long) list of places to go. Italy first (how is it I’ve never been to Italy?) but then, eastern Europe.

  3. That’s a nicely composed picture of an interesting subject. I know very little about Budapest beyond it being two cities that merged. I second Redhead’s request that you post more pictures of this trip.

  4. Would have sworn that the picture was of your hotel room, so SHOCKED to find it was a public space in Parliament… who knew they even had a Parliament in Hungary!?!?

    We visited Tuscany and searched hard for bad wine. There was none to be found, nor bad food either. Maybe they ship the bad wine away?


  5. kirizar – Michigan – I am all things to all people. As long as people are looking for a mom with diverse interests and a homebound tendency to look through the window of life and wish (or imagine) something just a little bit different. I am like the Tardis on Doctor Who. I am much bigger on the inside.

    I hope you got a chance to try the cuisine. The most memorable soup I ever tasted, was a chilled, cream and cherry soup I had in Magyar, Hungary. I also learned to like aubergines there. Very tasty grub there.

  6. It would a much easier trip if you didn’t have to jump through so many airline hoops to get there. I recently went there for a four hour meeting. It took thirty seven hours for the 11.5 hour flight time.

    Coming back took 54 hours because it happened to be the day that the Boeing 737 Maxes were grounded. A direct flight would make it worth going back to experience that charming place. Maybe stay long enough to explore the caves on the Pest side of the river.

  7. One of my favorite cities in the world. Hope you had a chance to see more than a couple things. There’s a lot going on there.

  8. @johntshea, the dinosaurs are living there. Unfortunately they even create laws there. Fortunately we did not meet them.

  9. I always get the impression the Hungarians saw the Palace of Westminster and said, “You call that gothic? We’ll show you gothic…”
