One more day until the wedding we were invited to. It also meant it was our last day to enjoy a full day exploring Budapest. We decided we would focus on the area around the Hungarian Parliament Building first. It had been quite a while since we were actually there. And we were pleasantly surprised. It looks really nice and it has some great streets around it to get lost.Continue reading
A full day in Budapest. The sun was out and it was going to be a nice day! Budapest is amazing. We decided to walk towards Heroes’ Square (Hősök tere) and start from there. I love to roam the streets of Budapest. The buildings and streets are amazing. There’s always something happening. The summers are nice and hot. Just a great place to be. Shooting with my new favorite setup. The X-E4 with the 16mm attached.Continue reading
It had been a while since we spend a couple of days in Budapest. Simply exploring the city. Normally we just stop by to meet up with friends and family. But when we got an invitation to attend a wedding in Budapest this year in May, we decided to book a couple of extra days in the city. Just to be in the city and to be part of it again.Continue reading
Summer break arrived. Halfway September we could finally enjoy our short summer holiday. Spending a week in Hungary to catch up with friends and family and share the news about the pregnancy. This time we flew from Rotterdam Airport to Budapest where Gabi was waiting for us. We got into the plane, made ourselves comfortable and enjoyed the fact we were on the road again!
Two days actually. And one night. We were back in Budapest for the weekend on the 9th of January. And not just any weekend. I planned the whole trip as a surprise. A surprise that came with a ring and I am happy she said yes!
No matter how many times you visit Budapest, it never gets boring. 🙂 There’s always something (new) to be seen, a place to go or simply enjoy the city as it is.
There are the obvious sites you have to visit as a tourist. And they’re not all above ground. The Budapest Metro system is one of those nice surprises the city holds. Line 1 (M1) and 4 (M4) especially. My idea was to ride the Metro and take some photos while doing so.
Unfortunately I had to fly back home last Sunday. But because we wanted to show the little one to the family in Budapest and have a night out in town we arrived in Budapest on Saturday already.
With family members around to watch Iván we could escape for a couple of hours and enjoy the buzz of a Saturday night in Budapest.
After having dinner we went for a short walk by crossing the river Danube using the Széchenyi Chain Bridge (one of Budapests landmarks).
