Visiting Vienna

Karlsplatz Station -- Art Decor Exterior

Last week I shared some details on our trip to Budapest. Well, we also visited Vienna, Austria! Here are some tidbits from that portion of the trip.

Why Austria and Hungary?
People keep asking us why we chose to visit Vienna and Budapest. The honest answer is just that I saw awesome photos of Vienna and was completely drawn in. We love to travel and have a long list of future destinations, but I guess beautiful pictures clinch the deal. Since we were already going to be in Europe for Austria, we added on an extra stop of Budapest. Why not?

So many museums
If you like visiting museums, Vienna is the place for you. You could spend weeks going to see art, natural history, Austrian history, Jewish culture, military history, and so much more.

Visting Budapest: Photos, recap, and favorite spots

Oh hello there! Sorry for the lack of posts recently; I’ve been off adventuring.

I recently returned from a vacation with George to Budapest and Vienna. We spent about 5 days in each place, and today I’ll share some stories and my favorite spots from Budapest.

Overall impressions
Budapest is a really neat city. It definitely has the old, European look, with stone front facades and historic buildings everywhere. Almost everyone we met was very kind and polite. Most Hungarian people we encountered in the city spoke at least basic English, which is great, considering how difficult Hungarian is to learn.
