Heading to Hungary

We’re off on a two week stint in Budapest. Jake has always wanted to go and after doing quite a bit of research I am equally as excited to see what the city has to offer. 

Since we have worked on ships, we are fortunate to have many friends from Hungary who have given us some great ideas and tips. I am expecting to feel quite foreign but not have too difficult of a time. I do not speak any Hungarian & after checking out some of the words & spelling & pronunciation I highly doubt we will pick up much more than the basics. But I also understand that many younger folks speak English fluently… Which will make a big difference to our experience.

I am excited to check out the art nouveau architecture and hit a few ruins bars. We’re planning a day trip up the Danube river to Visegrad. We’re also hoping to hit the opera and a concert or two of both traditional gypsy and modern local music.

Our friends have a few tricks up their sleeves, so I know this will be a great adventure.

Happy End of the Birthday Month to Jake!
