Monthly Recap: March 2019

March was sunny and busy. 🙂 We spent our time visiting family, hunting for wildflowers and waterfalls, returning to places we love and exploring new ones. We’ve been to two countries, Germany and Slovenia, and we’ve hiked a lot. We are simply happy that winter is really over and our favorite part of the year has started…


Nagy-Szénás, Buda Hills, Hungary

First wildflowers in the Buda Hills near Budapest. The landscape is usually still bare and grey in early spring, but countless tiny wildflowers give it a charm. We enjoyed our easy hikes in the Buda Hills while catching glimpse of the first wildflowers of the season.

Ptuj, Slovenia

Weekend getaway to Maribor, Slovenia. Slovenia is one of our favorite countries in the world, and we were happy to explore a new region last month. Maribor and its surroundings, the old historical towns of Ptuj and Celje, and the nearby Pohorje Mountains with countless wildflowers and lovely waterfalls made for a perfect weekend getaway. You can soon read more about them.

Széchenyi Square, Pécs, Hungary

Returning to Pécs. Pécs is the loveliest town in Hungary! Also, it’s one of the first places we visited together with Csaba. Oh my, it was about 10 years ago, it was time for another visit. We are still in love with Pécs, it has such a unique cultural heritage and amazing architecture that makes it really stand out.

East Side Gallery, Berlin, Germany

Our first visit to Berlin. Though the capital of Germany didn’t make us fall in love, we came home with some special memories. We liked the East Side Gallery of the Berlin Wall very much, and also visiting the glass dome of Reichstag, and our tour of Charlottenburg Palace.

Coming up in April

Pohorje Mountains, Slovenia

A visit to Vienna, because we enjoy visiting it each year, and especially enjoy doing it in the spring. Some more hiking. We plan to return to Romania, and explore more of that beautiful wilderness we got a taste of on our trips last year.

Then we are going to a wedding of a dear friend at the end of April. At the same time, we are returning to a barely known corner of Hungary since the wedding takes place in Gyula. It’s a lovely city in the southeastern part of the country that we visited about 10 years ago as a fresh couple madly in love. So it just makes sense to revisit after all those years and celebrate that mad love. 😀
