Athens to Stuttgart Road Trip Part 12 – Budapest

Athens to Stuttgart Road Trip Part 12 – Budapest

Today I was the tour guide for Mitsos. The big walking tour of Budapest. From our place to the bakery on the corner and further to the river, over the bridge and up the Castle Hill. And from there in a circle back home again. Since I have been so many times in Budapest I spare you the same pictures. I focused mainly on buildings this time. But if you want to see more of Budapest: All the Budapest Posts.

A 1969 Ford Capri. We had a Silver one when I was a kid. The lowest car on the streets at this time.

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
