We visited East Germany, Czechoslovakia, and Hungary in 1991 just after the end of the Cold War...
Of the three, the Hungarian economy seemed the best...many small businesses and a lot for the tourist to buy and enjoy. I'm pleased that you were pleasantly surprised with the current state in Budapest...and there is no better way to enjoy it than having such a nice apartment in the middle of it all.

Interesting Times
It must have been an interesting time right after 1989 and the collapse of communism. I think things have changed a lot since. I don't know how much the rest of the country has changed, but Budapest has definitely moved on. Thanks for reading!

Dreaming of Venice
Up the streets, down the streets, up the canals, down the canals... wandering could become a vocation, ok, has become a vocation. The canals, the people, the food, the vitality. You will know where you are going once you get there. What a wonderful way to live. As always the amazing photos.

Dreaming....
Ah, today we wandered too far and actually woke up in a new country and a new city. Doesn't seem possible that Venice was just a day ago, so much has happened already. Wonder what the day will bring? Tired legs, for sure....

Burano Island

Your pictures!
I always love the quality of all your pictures, my favorites are all the unexpected beautiful bright colored ones, like this one! We are still working on perfecting our photography skills. It truly makes the places you travel to seem unreal and mystical, thanks for sharing them with all of us! Safe Travels!

Burano Island

Thanks
I think your pictures are great. I liked your pictures from the grand canyon. Your picture of Horseshoe Bend inspired us to go there. Photography helps us see more when we travel and the search for photos leads us to things we may not have found otherwise. Thanks for reading and the nice compliment.

Murano "Selfies"

Selfies
We often ask ourselves "Where are we now?" before we pinch ourselves. Selfies not our forte. But it may be yours! This is a glorious selfie for your memory banks.

Murano "Selfies"

Selfies
This was actually a piece of street art on the island of Murano which is famous for its glass artists. I doubt that the person who made this artwork had this interpretation in mind! Ha ha. Thanks for reading, Dave!

You discovered the perfect way to experience Venice...
I'm sorry that you are leaving so soon.

It's been fun!
We enjoyed Venice a lot and seem to know every street now. Unfortunately, time to move on but hopefully the next place will be even better. Thanks for reading!

Gondola Sunrise

Wanderlust
You've definitely been in the perfect place for wandering and stayed in the best place for finding your home again. I spent a couple of weeks there (staying with nuns on Giudecca) and while I love maps, it was so much more fun to do as you did and aimlessly wander, magically discovering all those quaint squares, bridges, churches and characters. Fab prose and photos as usual--thanks for the delicious memories!

Gondola Sunrise

Ah, Giudecca!
We spent a better part of a day there. Same architecture but no crowds. We liked Cipriani's hotel and the OCI museum. Close by San Giorgio Maggiore church was our favorite that we visited during our stay. I'm sure we'll be back someday! Thanks for reading, Tara!

Wandering
One of my favorite ways to visit someplace is to just wander. I do keep a map in case I get hopelessly lost, but as you write, it's great fun to stumble across a beautiful courtyard, an interesting restaurant, or a tiny church/temple. One of my favorite quotes about travel comes from Lewis Carroll: “One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. ‘Which road do I take?’ she asked. ‘Where do you want to go?’ was his response. ‘I don’t know,’ Alice answered. ‘Then,’ said the cat, ‘it doesn't matter.” From Alice in Wonderland.

Wandering
Venice is the perfect place for wandering. Didn't George Harrison say, "If you don't know where you're going, then any road will take you there". Thanks for reading and wandering with us!

Photos again
I know my comments are pretty much the same on every blog you write but, your photos are out of this world!
4th March 2015

That's OK!
Some things you can't hear to much! Thanks for always reading (or at least looking at the photos). ;-)

Great pics...particularly when viewed large!
Love Venice, and plan to return this summer for a few nights. You seemed to have hung around for a while. Did you airbnb?
4th March 2015

Thanks!
Thank you for the nice compliment. We stay for a month or more everywhere we travel to now. We almost exclusively use Airbnb for the last year and a half. They have such a wide variety of places and it's easy to use for us. Thanks for reading!

Thanks!
Venice is beautiful and we are a little sad that we only have a few days left!

Grand Canal Sunset

Incredible blog!
Fantastic, dreamlike prose and incredibly vivid photos! This really seems as if it could be published in the NY or LA Times travel sections. You are so brave and well-rewarded to have visited at Carnevale (I just returned from its wet version in Bolivia). I spent a couple of weeks there one autumn and loved the non-tourist feel of the place, which you now have. Happy to see you're back in Europe!

Grand Canal Sunset

Thank you!
That's very nice of you to say and we appreciate you reading! We hope we get a chance to read about your Carnival adventure soon! Venice is very nice whether crowded or not and we are really glad we finally got a chance to get here. We really like Italy and would love to do what you do with staying a much longer time here. Maybe one day....Thanks again for following along!!

Oh Venice...
You've made me fall in love with Venice all over again. Fantastic blog and photos. :)
19th February 2015

Thanks!
Venice is great and much more serene now that Carnevale is over. While the food is great here, you can't find Indian food and every time we read your blogs from Kerala or Ooty we are so starving! Thanks for reading....
