loveletters from budapest

loveletters from budapest travel post title

Hi guys!

I am in Budapest right now with my friend Mona from Canada.
I'm a bit homesick, but as usual I'm having a good time here enjoying the beautiful buildings, the good food and the atmosphere. It's my fourth (or even fifth?) time here and with each stay I love this city more. I'm glad to see new cool bars, pubs, shops and streetart everywhere - you can see the difference to when I was here last time in April 2012. There are lots of exchange students and international visitors mingling with the locals, cross cuisine mixed with traditional Hungarian food, international brands like Starbucks competing with local ones like California Coffee Company, independent Hungarian design shops spreading within the kitschy souvenir shop landscape.
I don't want to blog too much while I'm on holidays, so I'm just giving you a mix of different photos I took in the last couple of days to give you an impression of what it's like here and of what I wore.
On Thursday I'll move on to Prague - so excited already!
But first Budapest:

This is the Danube with the Elizabeth Bridge in the distance - as you can see we have perfect weather here!

Le moi in front of streetart - there are letters written on the little cubes. Plus my shirts match the colours of this thingy!


The Liberty Bridge by night - one of my favourite spots to take photos here, always so beautiful!

Yes I'm posing on some ancient Roman ruins - these photos were taken at Aquincum, the remains of an ancient Roman town outside of Budapest's city centre.

I also visited a friend of mine and her darling 6-months-old son at her shop, the Jojó Art Shop. They sell all kinds of accessories and bags made by Hungarian designers and their very own cute handmade mugs with unique illustrations on them.

Sporting my new winter jacket in front of the Szent István Bazilika - this is another one of my favourite spots in Budapest.

View on the Parliament from Fisherman's Bastion - located in the hills of Buda it gives you a beautiful view up and down the Danube.

Lounging about in a bath tub sofa - is this cool or is this cool?! Well, you can do that at the Szimpla bar, an awesome ruin pub with penis hearts on the wall.

If you have the chance to visit Budapest you really should!
You can also get more impressions in my other Budapest posts if you like.
Hope you enjoyed the photos!

Until next time (probably from Prague then),

25 first times

25 first times q&a post title
Hi guys!

This is my last post before going on holiday, yaay! So excited!
My girl Peet from For Peet's Sake did a fun 25 first times post the other day and tagged me to do one too, so here it is. Don't worry, it's G-rated! ;)

First tweet:
Sorry, I'm not on Twitter.

First blog post:
I was pretty insecure and anxious if someone would be interested in my photos and ramblings. Now three years later I'm glad I started blogging and kept going until now.

First blog you followed:
Delightfully Tacky, so good!!

First Facebook profile picture:
Haha it was a photo of an owl! I like owls.

Do you still talk to your first love?
No, 14-year-old me was tough enough to dump him and never talk to him again after he kissed my former best friend. Ha!

First alcoholic drink:
Not really the first alcoholic drink, but even better - first alcoholic faux pas: I was 14 and told my parents I would sleep over at a friend's house and of course she told her parents the same. So we hung out at the skate park, got really drunk, visited a punkrock concert and stayed out all night, got even more drunk and broke into a tool shed (no comment...). The next morning a guy wrote me a message if we would be together now and I didn't even know who he was. What do we learn from this kids? Alcohol is bad. (But fun!)

First job:
When I was 18 (late, I know - spoiled only child) I worked at a recreation park (where the aforementioned skate park was). I had to sell tickets mostly, but of course felt like the coolest kid in town when I let all my friends in for free.

First car:
Oh my God, are you sure you want to know that?!
My parents' car: back then (and fortunately long gone by now) a neon yellow Seat Cordoba. And yes when I say neon I mean NEON!! It was so embarassing...

First person that texted you today:
Someone I got to know a couple of weeks ago and like a lot.

Who was the first person you thought of this morning?
Again the same someone I got to know a couple of weeks ago and like a lot.

First great teacher:
Mr. Flecke, my English teacher in 5th grade. I think this is where my love for the English language began (I study it now).
I actually wonder how this happened because he made us stand up and sing a "Good morning Mr. Flecke" song each morning when he entered the room, damn I hated it...

Where did you go to on your first airplane ride?
Haha really not spectacular: Dresden. It's a city in Eastern Germany and I went there on a trip with a friend. The flight took us ridiculous 45 minutes.

Who was your first best friend? Do you still talk?
Thomas! I've literally known him since I was born. His mum and mine were best friends too, they lived across the street so their house was my second home. We're still best friends, so yes we still talk ;)

Where was your first sleep over?
I really don't remember but I think probably at my grandma's house. I loved it there, she always made me delicious snacks and let me watch TV as long as I wanted. Score!! In your face, mum's TV restrictions!

What was the first thing you did this morning?
Pushed the snooze button! Like every morning.

What was the first concert you ever went to?
Oh, well now this is embarassing... The Kelly Family when I was 10 years old. Looking back now I feel deeply ashamed!

First broken bone:
Never had one. My bones are made of steel, ha! No they're not, but still they seem to be pretty indestructible.

First piercing:
You can see it in my photos. The lip piercing when I was 18.

First foreign country you've been to:
The Netherlands. My parents used to go there on vacation with me almost every year when I was a child.

First movie you remember seeing:
Uhm, hhmm...I think it was Arielle but I'm really not sure.

First detention:
I don't remember if we actually had detention. But I had to leave the class room a lot because I couldn't keep my mouth shut and chatted too much.

First roommate:
Never had one (ex boyfriends don't count here, do they?).

First sport you were involved in:
I started to take jazz dance classes when I was four and quit when I was sixteen.

First thing you do when you get home:
I put on my pyjama pants!! :)

When was your first kiss:
At a summer camp when I was 12. Wind of Change was playing in the background - haha as corny as it can be, right?

Have a good day loves! :)
