Exploring Budapest I couldn’t help but feel like it’s a city that’s still very much haunted by the past. I didn’t know much about Hungarian history before I arrived but, once there, it was hard to escape. Hungary as a whole seems to be still very much reeling from the horrors and tragedies of the last few hundred years.
Sometimes opportunities crop up out of the blue and there’s no way you can turn them down. So when a classmate of mine asked if I wanted to spend Christmas with her family in Hungary, the only sane response was “Ahhhhh! Bien sûr!”.
