We’ve chosen to live in Budapest, at least for the time being. It is a beautiful city, often rated one of the most beautiful in the world for its eclectic architecture. Many interesting sites, museums, shops, bars, and restaurants sit alongside an often troubled history. Like all cities, it has its problems and its detractors, but for us it is a home from home and we love it. So we write about Budapest and Hungary quite a lot. While we hope these articles will be useful to visitors, many are just about life in the city, and those of people we meet. If you plan to visit Budapest (as you should) don’t ignore the rest of the country. There are some hidden gems, fantastic food and wine, and wonderful festivals. Enjoy.
