I think, just maybe, my new favourite city. Spontaneous trips to new places are the best – even better when they’re full of good food, weather and views.  There was something even nicer about going to a city (or a country) where we both knew pretty much nothing. I didn’t know a single word of the language, the currency looked insane and I didn’t have any idea of the things we *must* visit. Armed with a seriously crammed backpack and a camera, we headed off for a couple of days of wandering around and exploring. Walking up all the hills (even better at night!), across all of the bridges and climbing all the stairs – the iPhone health app practically died we walked so many steps. The buildings so grand and with so much character, the trams looking oh so rEtRo and a serious escape from the manic of London. A perfect weekend, what a dreamy city. I love it.

To eat:

To visit:

  • Szechenyi Thermal Baths (40 degree outdoor baths and beer)
  • Any shop because there’s pineapple Fanta over there, I tell ya
  • Everywhere around by the Dohany Street Synagogue – sweet vintage, street art and independent stores
  • A walk up to Citadel and St Stephens Basilica

In other news, back to the grrrriiiiiiiiiiiiind (spent all night staring at an empty InDesign doc, fun fun fun). Also, WHERE NEXT?

now playing: duh

    Oh man, I can’t wait to go to Budapest!! It looks fantastic. And the salted caramel ice cream detail made me drool tremendously. How many days would you recommend to visit the city? Is it huuuge or ok to walk around?

      I only went for 2 nights and it was perfect to see the main things but I would’ve loved to have spent longer there!!
