Vienna/Budapest, a set on Flickr.

A (not so tiny) set from our five days in Vienna and Budapest. To be honest, I was toying with the idea of naming this set Monstria and Goodapest. Oh, and I did it. We deciced to spend a long weekend, five days, in two of the cities that represent the heart of Central Europe; Vienna and Budapest.

It's been more than ten years since my last visit to Vienna. I really wanted to see it again and I have to say the city left me completely untouched, so to speak. Really flat impression, empty people (not to say I was shocked by their complete lack of style - yes, we called them ugly), but the city still leaves impression of good (old) days. Pity it hasn't carried some of that esprit in present times. It

Budapest on the other hand..... My oh my. A city of such striking beauty, warmth, good energy, wonderful atmosphere it's really hard to comprehend. It's really funny those two cities were once part of the same state, because it seems that Vienna took the rational approach whilst Budapest wanted emotions and beauty. And it still has all that. Plenty of it. Plenty, plenty. We were there half a year ago. In November it seemed like a pretty postcard, lacking some of the boom. But, people, apparently Hungarians need warmer weather to display all they've got to offer.

If you can, go there. Just go.

Awesome photos. What about the boys? Are they all porn-like in Budapest?

I have some friends who were in Budapest the past two weeks. I should've known you were going. Ya'll could've possibly met.

My friend is bringing me Czech language brochures for the car I want next - Škoda Yeti. I guess basically to rub in my face that I can't have one here, lol.

Pictures, as always, a delight. Thank you for sharing, T!

My oh my, and my "adopted son" got so enchanted with Vienna last month that he is still pining for it! Do I now have to send him to Budapest as an antidote or what? :)
