OF FAIRY TALES & TWIN CITIES

Prague, November 2013


Budapest, November 2013

Reminiscing on those cold wintry afternoons, surrounded by unfamiliar architectural monuments and the perfectly seasoned air in Eastern Europe. It's times like these, laden with work and a mumbo-jumbo of responsibilities and my self persevering philosophy, that I find myself detached from reality, and instead craving long, stimulating trips to off beat places where you can let your hair down and allow chance to take over the reins of your life.

I can recall my 38 hour solo journey from Montpellier-Prague to Warsaw-Budapest, which was a series of delayed trains, broken engines, & a stop over at my favourite Berlin, picking up friends along the way. With occasional hiccups like losing phones, falling ill, train accidents, delays, and the mighty SNCF strikes, our impromptu trip was quite the experience.

Prague: Despite the sublime beauty of this Bohemian city, the one thing that I enjoyed the most were the spiral potato wafers  on top of the Prague Castle. SO SO YUMMY.

Warsaw: It was a flash of 2 zloty vodka shots, 90's music, & ridiculously early sunsets. My apologies for not having any photographs to display; we were barely in our senses for most of the time, if you know what I mean.

Budapest: Not as magical as Prague on print & paper, but Budapest, in its rustic disposition has everything to guarantee you a jolly good time. From the blue Danube to ruin bars & thermal baths, this twin city (Buda-Pest) is a clear winner if you want to just unwind and relax.
