Update: August 2017

vintage Budapest spa

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer! I can’t believe it’s already August.

This week I’m on vacation to Budapest (and maybe Vienna, I don’t know yet). I will have posts scheduled, so please keep stopping by! However, there will be a delay approving comments. I’ll approve and respond as soon as I can. If you don’t see your comment after posting, that’s why. I haven’t approved them yet.

When I get back I’ll be visiting my in-laws in the Midwest (since I haven’t seen them in a decade). The same thing applies. I’ll have scheduled posts and there will be some delay approving comments. I won’t have my laptop with me. I’m trying to have some Screen Free time because…

School starts back the last week of August. I may not be posting as frequently but I hope to have at least 3 posts a week posted. Perfume is my “escape” so I enjoy taking the time to write about what’s happening in Perfume World.

Also before I go, do you guys have book recommendations? Or any recommendations of things to do in Budapest? This was a trip that was planned last minute. I plan on doing all the thermal bath stuff, getting a facial at Omorovicza, doing the usual tourist stuff like visiting ruin bars, gazing at architecture, etc.

  1. Have fun! It’s a beautiful city. Go to the Opera House, see a performance of any kind if possible. It’s like sitting in a little jewel box, it is Gorgeous! (Plus it’s considered to be the third best opera house in the world for acoustics). Go to lots of coffee shops and eat lots of amazing pastries!

  2. I absolutely loved A Tale For The Time Being by Ruth L. Ozeki, and I strongly recommend it if you’re looking for a novel. Also A River Sutra by Gita Mehta is an excellent novel as well. Enjoy your trip!

  3. You can’t go wrong with ruin bars and all the thermal baths. In addition, I’d recommend a wine tasting (just at a decent wine bar is great) and also a ride on the railway at the top of Buda hill run by children! Followed by the chairlift back down the hill. And spritzers. Lots of spritzers – it gets hot.

    1. Did it all! It’s such a lovely place and we kept busy.

      Their wine is so amazing. I ended up doing 2 tastings to familiarize myself more with Hungarian wines.

      The railway was adorable!

      It was extremely warm while we were there (107 F). Spritzers became my bf.

    1. I keep reading rave reviews of it!

      I was able to squeeze in some “fun” reading while on my trip…I need to make that more of a priority in my life.
