In the years 2003 to 2006, I was travelling overseas a lot: a term abroad in New York (including a trip through California before the start of the term), a month in Australia, and trips to both Western and Eastern Canada. But I also spent some time abroad in Europe.
Two Hungarian friends of mine wanted me to come to Budapest with them for years. In early July 2007, I finally made it to Hungarian captial. Ironically, my friends did not have a lot of time during the weekend I spent there. Therefore, I explored Budapest mainly by myself.
