How will you Choose to go Through This Holiday Season?

Share

Here we go! The holiday season is kicking into high gear, and usually what that means is that people are cooking, cleaning, hosting, shopping, and stressing. It’s a time of year when we give thanks and join family and friends around the table, and then after stuffing our faces beyond belief, we stumble over to the living room and fall into food comas around the television.

The other route, the one I took on this particular day led me […]

For some reason, the city of Budapest always seemed like a mysterious destination to me and its been one of those places I didn’t know much about. I had heard people talk about it, seen a couple of photos, but it had never ranked on my short list of ‘must-see’ places. Not for any reason in particular, but more so because of my lack of knowledge and information about the Hungarian capital. Just having the name Buda in the title […]
