What did I learn in Budapest? This time it was really difficult to think about something. Might be that the rain just drained my brain?
Still, there are a couple of things that I believe I learned in Budapest.
1.) Bring an umbrella when traveling in winter, if possible in color. It will brighten any day (see the black one from the hotel looks a bit depressing).
2.) When taking a bottle of champagne on your trip, also bring a cooler.
3.) And glasses (the plastic cups just lack in style)!
4.) Always ask for the way first before walking 20 minutes in the wrong direction.
5.) Next to the checkout in a supermarket you find usually chocolate, magazines and other junk. Not so in Budapest. There you can find condoms and matches. Quite the interesting combination.
6.) Bring a second pair of shoes on any trip.
7.) Make sure that your guide-book is up-to-date.
8.) Travel with people you love. Everyone can be happy when the sun is shining, but when it’s constantly raining you need to surround yourself with friendly faces.
9.) And it’s an advantage if they like to go for a drink or two.
