Train to Szentendre. Hungary.

What a wonderful day we have this morning, we are going to Szentendre! or St. Andrew’s, a small and charming coastal village 20 km from Budapest, on the shore of Pest. There are two ways to get there if you don’t have a car, by train and by boat. We, my “lovely Hungarian family” and […]

The statues of Budapest

I walk and find them here and there, in the middle of the sidewalk, in a park, by the river. Budapest is a city full of curious statues. I encounter them, some are very pretty, I even have a favourite one. If you are thinking about the typical statue of a war hero, even though […]

My favourite unknown corners of Budapest.

I adore the city, the whole of it, but there are some places, maybe not that popular, that I fell in love with. The first one is very close to my home, the New York Cafe, a literary cafe frequently visited in the past by well known writers such as Sándor Márai. Since 1894 has […]

Buda and Pest

When I was a little girl, I read a book where Sissy loses her memory and recovers it thanks to the waltz “The Blue Danube” yes, that tribute of the grand river that crosses Europe and the city of Budapest. In 1873 the hilly side, Buda, and the flat one, Pest, united resulting in a […]

Roman Museums with Basak.

Today I go back to Pincio’s Terrrace, I walk around this beautiful park full of Roman statues, fountains & a lake liven up by the music of this artist that enchants me like the “Pied Piper of Hamelin” I have my ticket that I bought in advance, I arrive earlier to drop off my bag […]

Bernining in Repubblica, Quirinale & Popolo. Rome.

One of my Roman routines is going to yoga; thanks to a friend I found a very pretty studio called Ryoga very close to Piazza Repubblica. The metro stop is right underneath, the first time I exit it I don’t only find myself into a magnificent semicircular square, but facing the exuberant Fontana delle Naiadi right […]
