this was my last day in budapest and i finally had time to visit the city a little.
during my trip, my mind about budapest changed completely. at first, i thought that it was a glorious city once, but there is not enough money in hungary to keep the buildings renovated and as beautiful as they were – and i was right with this opinion, but i can see the true beauty of budapest now as well.

the magnificent buildings get a mysterious touch through their crumbly facades, there are flower shops everywhere around the city and i believe that budapest has to be the greenest place in europe around summertime because you see trees and parks simply everywhere. for every house there are 3 trees, it seems.
i couldn´t really take pictures because i did a hop-on hop-off tour, so i have to preserve the beautiful images in my mind somehow – do you know this feeling when you see something so surreal and overwhelming, it simply takes your breath away? that´s how i felt today! even though i couldn´t take great pictures, enjoy the ones i captured over the past days:

west end shopping center – 3000 brands in over 300 shops
ready for business
isn´t this a great lamp? maybe one of the next diy projects…
today afternoon i got to budapest and managed to take a few snapshots! as far as i can say right now, budapest is a beautiful city but it´s a lot different from what i´m used to in austria – but i still have 2 more days here and i definitely want to check out the biggest shopping centre in europe with 400 shops, west end city center or one of the newer ones in the heart of the city!
this weekend was so nice and relaxing for us. friday i went for some drinks with my friend and yesterday we went shopping (see last post). in the evening, my babe and i stayed in, ordered some amazing sushi (which would have been enough for at least 4 people) and watched some dvd´s. today was more or less the same, so my outfit was only something really simple – without any accessories or anything, but nice enough to go for a coffee at my grandparents house.
first time driving with my rooftop open, yay!!!
really good olive oil at the italian restaurant we had lunch at yesterday
best lunch ever: warm bread salad with prosciutto crudo, rocket, sun-dried pickled tomatoes, olives, avocado and parmesan! it´s a quick lunch to do at home as well – just roast the ciabatta bread, insert the rest of the ingredients and warm up everything a little – and there you go!
sushi party set 🙂
wish you all a nice sunday evening!
p.s. off to budapest tomorrow, be sure to stay updated!
