Budapest Greetings!

The past few days, I took a short trip to Budapest. It was rainy and dark skies the entire time, but still a fantastic city, where I hope to return soon for a longer spot of adventure. We were drenched at Heroes’ Square, we were soaked at the Széchenyi baths (well, I suppose one is always a bit damp there), and adequately moist hiking up Gellért Hill to The Citadella. So, I leave you with this photo taken from the top overlooking Pest. More bookish things to come, I swear! I’m now suitably tired in my apartment in Berlin where the sky is also a foggy grey, which doesn’t help how entirely shattered I feel. But, for now, here is my little postcard from Budapest, which you can click to enlarge.

  1. Budapest keeps popping up in my circles this week! My weekly short story for Deal Me In was written by A Budapest native, Edina Doci (now living in Belgium) and I read some news about a chessplaying friend who is a grandmaster player from… Budapest! – And now your postcard. I’d like to visit it some day as well, but probably most of my European destinations will likely only get their turn when I retire. 😦

    1. Yes, you must! I wish I could’ve spent more time there, but we really only had 2-3 days to spare. I look forward to jumping into some more Hungarian lit once I return stateside. I’m a bit behind, but I’ll definitely take a look at your short story this week.
