It seems to have become a tradition like going to your beach house every summer (for those lucky enough to have a beach house) that I go to Berlin every year. Besides loving Berlin, it’s vibrancy, bars, markets and culture I love my friends who live there and always anticipate with great excitement seeing them and hanging out. And there is no city in Europe that I would rather hang out in than Berlin.
This year when my nephew Natan did his after school back packing around Europe tour it struck me that this 22-year-old had seen more of Europe than I had! Not that I haven’t seen my fair share or spent more time in each place I have visited, but still, it made me aware that I am not getting any younger and that I needed to shake things up a bit! So now I have made a commitment to myself to see new places every time I visit. In truth I did this the last time I visited with my 4 day jaunt to Prague. I’m trying to keep it to places that are easy and cheap to get to so this trip it will be Budapest and Vienna each for 3 days. I Fly to Vienna, take the train to Budapest then fly back to Berlin.
I love taking the train in Europe, it’s so old world 😉
So, why, you might ask, am I telling you this?
I want your suggestions! If you have recently been to one of these places please let me know what I should be doing, which market I have to see and where is the best tucked away cafe that has the most transcendent food for a great price.
The only thing I know I am going to do stroll through the Naschmarkt in Vienna and eat at Onyx restaurant in Budapest – a Michelin starred restaurant that offers a prix fix lunch for only $30! And from what I can tell that includes gratuity. The movie clip above looks very elaborate – I can’t wait
Please, let me know any tips you have. Of course I will be blogging throughout the trip. Leave Wednesday so please if you have any ideas leave them in the comments!
