Traipsing Through Hungary.


I have caught a bit of the travel bug lately. Unfortunately, I am in no financial spot to go traipsing around the world despite how much I want to. I can, however, go back in time a bit and reminisce about some adventures I have had. I took out a few photos from my travels through Hungary. This was almost 8 years ago to the day. It was such an awesome experience and I had so much fun. The downsides: I found no one spoke any English and I couldn't speak that much Hungarian so TONS of stuff was lost in translation and restaurant food got a bit dicey sometimes. By the end I was sticking to only MacD's because at least I could count on recognizing the food! Of course all this makes for funny stories now so I wouldn't have had it any other way.

My pictures look at little creepy but at the time I only had my trusty film camera. Oh, and that is me in the pictures when I was 15.

  4. Ooo, beautiful images! I love my digital camera, but I miss using my old film camera. I think I'm going to have to dig it out again this summer!

  8. Awesome photos, I went to Budapest in 2008 and found it amazing- gorgeous architecture, everything's cheap and then there's the spas... but yes getting by was a little hard and think I resorted to a Mc D's for one meal too ;) it's funny looking back on things which at the time might have been a bit trying but which now we'd not change at all! Hope you get to travel again soon! xx

  10. I definitely have the travel bug these days, too. Unfortunately, I'm a poor college students and my spring break doesn't align to my family's. Sad sad sad. I look back on my trip to Indonesia when I was 15 all the time. I'm jealous of yours!
