MUPA: the surprise is a little further

In my opinion this is the biggest and one of the best venues in Hungary for concerts of classical music international or Hungarian artists in Budapest. It also hosts the Ludwig Museum and Hungarian National Philharmonic. They are located within the Millennium City area, […]

Winter trip to Budapest

The life had changed a lot since I started this blog. We are no longer living in Budapest and I miss the country, the memories and friends we left behind. Then we decided to return to Hungary for Christmas. Planning what to do during the Christmas time in Budapest is not easy. It will be cold […]

Using the network!

Many years ago I went to Caribe in a cruise. A girl who was afterwards taking the same ship found me on the internet and send me a message asking how was the trip and so on. Now again, 8 year later I received a message from the same girl who now is coming to […]

Where the subway stations meet each other in Budapest?

The main cemetery in Budapest is called Kerepesi and is not a touristic destination at all but it should be. It doesn’t host the Western icons like the ones in Paris neither attract crowds to its funeral ceremonies like New Orleans’. But for those who know a little more deep the history of the country, […]

Kids around…

This morning, I saw a 8 years old girl coming back from shopping, holding her bags full of groceries and soda. She got the house key out of her pocket and entered in her house and I entered in my memories! Since very young, I used to be the one to go to the bakery […]

Spring in Budapest – good programs for sunny days

The spring is the best time to visit Budapest. The sun is shinning, the gardens are not only green but colorful. The people are so opened and so happy that makes the environment so fantastic! I can list my insights for spring but you only can experience and understand how nice they are if you are […]

Trekking

Last week I went to my co-workers to Szilvasvarad for a trekking at the National park of Bukk. It was a sort of team building and we choose this place because it is close to Budapest, nice green area, waterfalls and lakes and on top of that (literally) there is a big cave where ancients […]

How do I tell my mom this?

Nowadays the people are more enthusiastic about Black Friday than the Holy Friday, I know. But in Brazil, it is a important Christian Holiday (the second one please, not the first at least not yet!). In Hungary and in Europe in general isn´t and then comes the question… how to explain your ultra-religious Mom you can´t save […]
