Four days in Budapest were enough to walk around the centre, to visit the major touristic attractions by on foot, but we would have needed at least 1-2 more days to visit the museums and go to Margaret Island. What do you know, in the end we didn’t get bored in Budapest, did we Mum and dad? :P

The first impression I got was one of grandioseness. In Vienna everything was so clasic, so perfect; here everything was so impressive. Budapest is like Vienna’s little sister gone wild: graffiti everywhere, a lot of alternative people, small streets full of surprises :)  We walked and walked and walked and we kept staring at things and buildings and I couldn’t understand why people keep mistaking Bucharest for Budapest, when clearly they are so different. I’m sorry for the suckers who don’t know the difference between the two of them.

I’ve also liked their bikers a lot! Girls in dresses or in short skirts, dudes with low-rides, families riding together despite the heavy traffic. We also attended the celebrations for Saint Stephan’s Day and yup, that is one civilized nation. Like it or not, we have a lot to learn from them! *thumbs up for Hungary!*

As for being a visitor in Budapest, one feels great. Even if you don’t make a plan there’s always something that catches your eye: a building, a street, a dude/dudette. I don’t know when I’ll be there again, but I’m planning of becoming a regular :)
