Once upon a time we decided to visit all the Hungarian national parks and tell you why you should visit them, too. Well, the project is still in progress, but we share the news with you from time to time. This time we show you Danube-Drava National Park that we visited last spring.
We knew that the Wild Atlantic Way and its coastal hikes will be a highlight of our Irish road trip. Because we love pretty coastal drives and hikes! What we didn’t expect is that we were spoiled with memorable birdwatching moments on this road trip, as well. In case you doubt birdwatching is an exciting activity, just google for “puffin” or “razorbill”. And in case you’re eager to do some birdwatching in Ireland, we’re sharing the best places we found.
Hungary is our home. We’ve grown up here and visited a lot of places in our country as kids, with our school or our family. We still travel a lot in Hungary. We like exploring historical towns, museums and castles, or hiking in the hills and mountains. They are all perfect weekend getaways for us from Budapest. And they can be so pretty! We collected here some of the most wonderful scenes from our travels in Hungary – outside of Budapest this time.
So we started to write a hiking guide to Central Europe. Or Eastern Europe? That’s exactly where we stopped. We planned to write this guide about hiking in Hungary – where we live – and the nearby countries. And we started thinking about how to call them: Central or Eastern European countries?
Ireland’s Atlantic coast impressed us with scenic drives and scenic hikes! Those alone would have been enough for us to fall in love with this country. And they were enough for us to love it in spite of the weather that made us scream for a sunny Mediterranean beach sometimes. So let us show you the best coastal hikes we found in Ireland – all with amazing panorama and lots of grazing sheep in front of the beautiful backdrop.
Transylvania is the land of legends. The land of mountains and pine forests, too. Long hikes, unspoilt landscapes, flocks and shepherds. But this time we’d like to show you some adorable short hikes that’ll make you fall in love and tempt for more.
Ireland is also called the Emerald Island due to its lush green countryside. And that is thanks to the frequent rains. But frequent rains mean something else, too: beautiful waterfalls! As we drove around the island, we found lots of pretty waterfalls in addition to the breathtaking coastal hikes, lakes and ancient ruins. So let us show you our favorite waterfalls in both Ireland and Northern Ireland.
The Székely Land is a special part of Transylvania. Though it’s in the heart of Romania, it’s inhabited mainly by the Székelys, a Hungarian-speaking ethnic group. It has its own history, culture and traditions. And it also offers some unique natural beauties that we’d like to show you in this post.
Oh, those old Christmas Eves when I used to stand by the window, hoping to get a glance of the angels as they bring our Christmas tree. Those old, old times when I used to write letters to Christ Child with detailed descriptions and pictures of the toys I was dreaming about. Yes, it’s Christ Child and his angels who come to Hungarian kids on Christmas Eve. And this post is about how we celebrate Christmas – in Hungary and in our family.
