Ha! I knew when I decided to post every day that I was crazy. I guess these travel posts are a bit more spread out than that, but I’ll keep posting them as quickly as I can write them. Also – I should note that I started this draft about a week ago. Last week was insane! It was the first week of classes (which didn’t mean too much for me, but it did mean I had to prepare for my new interns) and I had 2 website roll outs. Enough with the excuses, let’s talk about Budapest!
Budapest was perhaps the most relaxing, and the most isolating, of the places that I visited. One the one hand, I was there for an entire two weeks, and I was in an apartment again with a kitchen! Yay! Also, the people who managed the apartment were super nice. They bought me a bottle of Bailey’s to drink in the evenings. Yum. This did, however, make me more prone to stay inside and cook instead of going out. I’m a bit ashamed to say that I only went out for dinner once. Ouch! I also speak absolutely no Hungarian. While many of the people did speak English, few of the people I worked with spoke it well though. They were very nice and accommodating though, so I can’t complain.
Perhaps my favorite part of the trip was the tea date I had with my friend Lauren from The Thinking Closet. I ended up having some hut mulled wine on the Fisherman’s Bastion overlooking the Pest side of the city. Budapest is actually the combination of two cities – Buda and Pest (pronounced pesht) which flank the two sides of the Danube. I stayed on the Pest side, and the Fisherman’s Bastion was on the Buda side.
Ok, enough with the chatter – onto the pictures!
