Vámház körúti Vásárcsarnok

My favourite place to shop in Budapest is Vámház körúti Vásárcsarnok, although i love all the markets (piac) in Hungary. The prices are great, probably not as cheap as the major chains, but the produce is a hell of lot fresher than Tesco. U.S. does not have these kinds of markets in every neighbourhood, which […]

After Aggteleki Nemzeti Park

Yesterday i mentioned that a visit to Aggteleki Nemzeti Park could be a two-day trip and that there is a village just below the caves, so today i will show you the other places to see on your journey. After you exit the cave you will more than likely be hungry. Of course, you could […]

Aggteleki Nemzeti Park

If you ever find yourself in Hungary and want to get out of the filth of Budapest for a couple of days, then i would recommend Aggteleki Nemzeti Park. It was founded in 1985. It contains 198.92 km² (of which 39.22 km² are under increased protection). It has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage since 1995. […]

töltött káposzta

Today i prepared töltött káposzta (stuffed cabbage, but i did it Beáta Stanicsné Bödő-style and i layered it). It is one of my favourite Hungarian dishes. Please do not tell me that i prepared it the wrong way because there are as many ways to prepare it as there are families in Hungary. Some families make […]

Friends

The best moments in life, at least for me, are the ones that i share with great friends. i am a bit sentimental, or perhaps i am just mental, but i love my friends, my true friends and i miss them when i cannot see them or talk to them for long periods of time. […]

A Week In Debrecen

Debrecen is the second largest city in Hungary. i affectionately call it “a big village” because on any given day i could see a tractor riding down one of the streets, the same streets where a little old lady would carry a basket of baby chicks and the same streets that the one tram crossed […]

The Donut Library

Doughnuts. Doughnuts in Hungary are good for many things. You can use them as a door stopper, weights to build up your muscles, tires for a child’s wagon and as a weapon against an enemy, but they are not good for eating. Until now. The Donut Library is a great place to get an American-style […]
