What To Love About Fall?

It’s not easy for us to love fall. Our favorite season is summer, followed closely by late spring. Fall is complicated. It can be beautiful, but sad. But with time, we learned to appreciate that we live in a country with four seasons. We love the fall foliage in Hungary. Our mountains are of medium…

What’s It Like To Hike With A Baby? Part II.

We’ve already told about our experience hiking with a newborn baby. Since then our baby is already 1 year old, and we went hiking with him whenever we could during this spring and summer.

Monthly Recap: October 2020

With a 10 days mandatory quarantine in the beginning, followed by a rainy week and a weekend spent with our families, not much travelling happened in October. Nothing, to be exact.

Why Does Not Being Able To Travel Hurt So Much?

Monthly Recap: July 2020

After the high hopes for reopening the EU in June, came July. With constant uncertainty and confusion. Most countries, including our own, changed the entry restrictions – and keep on changing them -, leaving lots of people confused. We understand that no one wants the health situation to get much worse. But honestly, the situation…

Travelling In Central Europe In The Summer Of 2020

First of all, this post is not to encourage you to travel to Central Europe. (If you’re not from the EU, most likely you’re not allowed to enter, anyway. Or not without a 14-days quarantine. Or who knows? Rules change fast, so we don’t even try to update you with the most recent ones.) It’s…

Another Birthday Post In A Weird Year

Is it only one year that has passed since I wrote that post for my 30th birthday? I can hardly believe it. So many things happened since then, and my life changed so much that it doesn’t seem like a year but much more. But here I am, just turning 31. Looking back to the…
