Monthly Recap: November 2018

So November… the month we hate the most. The beautiful autumn colors are gone, daylight hours are short, weather is cold and wet – and I’m down with a high fever. We haven’t travelled anywhere this month. Uhm.. should I even carry on? Actually, we had some awesome days, too, in November.


Budapest, Hungary

Get-togethers with travellers and bloggers in Budapest. Csaba and I have been to Járatlan Utakon Festival, a two days long travel event dedicated mostly to backpacking and off-the-beaten-track travel (okay, I know, there’s no such thing ever since all the zillion bloggers are busy exploring the world and writing about everything… sorry, guilty here). We enjoyed the sessions, and simply being surrounded by like-minded travellers was pure happiness. It gave us countless ideas not just about travel, but also about how to move forward with this blog and our career as travel bloggers.

I went to my first blogging conference, the Cosmopolitan Blogger Days, also in Budapest. I’m still digesting all the information, and trying to decide whether I liked it or not. It was definitely eye-opening.

Budapest Christmas markets. They have been opened in mid-November. Yaaay! Some merry moments, delicious chimney cakes and romantic walks for the dark evenings. I also enjoyed taking pictures of all the city lights and Christmas decorations with my new camera.

Coming up in December

Budapest, Hungary

Of course, Christmas is coming! But before that, Santa Claus is coming to Hungary on the 6th of December. He gives presents to all the kids who were good enough, so we are quite excited. 😛

We are planning to visit more Christmas markets, probably in Hungary, or maybe the ones in Bratislava or Zagreb. Any recommendations which one should we visit?
