Budapest 1

So, with no further ado, a little update on some of the excitement in my life.

I went to an Erasmus contact seminar in Budapest from November 30-December 4th. Actually, the conference ended on the 2nd, but I worked things out to get a bit of time in the city on my own over the weekend. I figure I won't be in Budapest every day.

First impressions? To me, Budapest was more sprawling and grandiose than I had expected.

(I hate to say that I didn't do much research before I left, or else I would have known that Budapest was sprawling and grandiose.)

There may be more to come on this subject.


  1. It also looks cold and fairly wet. Which - considering the time frame - isn't particularly strange.

  2. Yes, it was rather cold, extremely foggy, and quite not the best weather for getting a feel for the city's beauty, although it did give it an ethereal atmosphere. Luckily it didn't rain too much, though.

  3. Welcome back to the blogging world. I was once in Budapest in the summer and thought it was a lovely city.

  4. @Linda -- Some people told me it was a city better appreciated in the summer.
