We’ve been planning to write a comprehensive seasonal hiking guide to Central (or Eastern?) Europe since ages. We live here, we hike here A LOT! So let’s see the best hikes to do in early spring first.
Hey, we didn’t forget about our monthly recaps! But with all the…
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.
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.
We hope you had some nice holiday time with sweet family moments and lots of sweets in December. If not, we hope that this new year will bring you more cheerful moments.
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.
Autumn has flown by with lots of sleepless hours, unusual warmth and the first hikes with our youngest adventurer.
If we’d like to get away from the crowd and noise of Budapest, we go for a hike in Buda Hills. While the city is lively and magnificent, Buda Hills are peaceful and fresh. And green – uhm, actually yellow, orange and brown this time of the year. Pilis Mountains are not much further and offer even more long and lovely hiking trails. And even more autumn colors that we just can’t get bored of.
July was typically hot and sunny, with lots of short trips, lots of get-togethers with friends and family, and lots of ice-cream.
