Photography & travel tips from an award-winning photographer, educator & wanderlust

Budapest, Hungary

What I loved: cities with a river – rock (for picture opportunities, walks, free entertainment); free booze on a river cruise; looking over top of the city from Gellert Hill; free water fountains; ability to cool off feet in non-drinking water fountains

What I didn’t: summer time heat; difficulty of the language; paid toilets

Quick travel tips: definitely take a night river cruise to see the Parliament all lit up as well as other buildings; don’t bother with the Ferris Wheel; get ready to walk; subway system has an honor code at some stations (unless we just rode it for free by accident)
