First glances at Budapest


Unfortunately, it has been raining since I got here a week ago. However, I still managed to steal some time to check out my new home for the coming half a year.

Here are a few first impressions:


An abundance of pretty buildings. More to come


8 meters tall, this is the world’s largest sand clock. It rolls out in one calendar year (and also has adjustments for leap years)


The Budapest Metro Line 1 is considered to be the oldest metro in Europe (For some reason they still don’t count London in Europe, theirs is actually older).  Line 1 was declared a World Heritage Site in 2002. It is – for lack of a better description – very cute. Feels like something out of a Dickens movie.


Last, but not least: Hungarian food is DIVINE.

Stay tuned for more.

Oh, and here’s a tip: if you are in a foreign city on a low budget, one of the best ways to check it out is to ride on a bus. Maria and I used to do it all the time in Paris – and I tried it here already. You just hop on the bus from a familiar place and ride it till the last stop and back. Pretty damn cool.
