You travel, you see things. The more I travel Europe, the more everything begins to look the same. It's only when I stop being a tourist, and slowly take in the city, then I see and experience the uniqueness of each place and culture. A couple of weeks ago I visited Budapest and Vienna, located in Hungary and Austria, respectively.
Very quickly I noticed that the cost of living in Budapest is a step below that of other cities around Europe, making it the perfect place to splurge on food and desserts. Throughout my time here, we visited several different cafes, all with its own unique feel. We also hit up places such as Buda-Castle, Széchenyi thermal baths, and Szentendre.
I also stopped by Vienna for a day and a half. I definitely would have liked more time to explore the city, but I guess that'll have to wait till next time...whenever that will be :)
