Budapest – which is technically the two cities of Buda and Pest separated by the Danube River – is absolutely stunning with its Old World architecture around every corner. But then, that’s Europe for you, right? That’s part of why I love Europe – history (in everything) is alive and well and ready for the taking for visitors with a penchant for that stuff (me!).

Weekend Bits & Bobs

This past weekend, I happened to be in the city center to do a bit of grocery shopping (bread, anyone?).
