Digging deeper
Nanci and David, always good to read your impressions of towns, cities and countries around the world. When you get back to Santa Rosa you will have to open an art gallery to display your work. You've found another town that we will add to our list.

Budapest
What a great city. This pic is the perfect entrance to enchantment.

Szentendre

The luxury of lingering
Like you two, I love slow travel; you put its advantages so well--see the famous sites the first two weeks, and then be able to dig deeper into the history and lives of the people. I was especially captured by the town of Szentendre--how great you went there on your own and could view the life that emerged between tour groups. Your photos are better than postcards--you could have a new career there!

Szentendre

Luxury of lingering
I don't think we could have been out this long without going slow. At times I don't consider ourselves travelers, but more like people who just live in different houses. We live just like we did at home, except when we are bored and want to go out, we can go somewhere cool. Thanks for reading!

from Budapest
Hello, I really liked what you experienced in my beautiful city. Just a little thing for those who are looking for some remains of the communist era. Of course Budapest looks very different from what it looked like 25 years ago but I'm sure there are quite a few people who are interested in the stories and everyday life from behind the iron curtain. There is a statue park (Memento Park) in Buda (not in the center unfortunately) where you can see all the monumental statues of Lenin, Stalin, the great soldiers of the Soviet Red Army, some newsreels and of course Trabants. So we remember our past, it's still in Budapest and it can be of course visited. Cheers, Julia

The Totems

Photos for sale
I wondered if you had a website where someone can buy a photo or photos they like? I see several I would like to purchase. :)

Budapest
Life behind the curtain has changed. Sounds like a perfect place to spend a month and think you might be back in the future if only when we can pull you away from Venice. So glad your world is growing smaller. It is always fun to change those outdated impressions. Hung on every word as always. Glad Budapest was full of surprises.

Budapest
It's been fun and I think this is really an under visited place. We enjoyed Venice so much that it was hard to follow, but this is really an interesting city. We hope to get out in the countryside a little soon. We'll see....Thanks for following along!

The Spiral Staircase

Thrilled!
How fabulous that Budapest has opened your hearts and travel plans to the beautiful East! Now I suppose, you'll be off to Prague, Cracow and St. Petersberg. A new world is before you. Hope you spend some time in the other-worldly baths there in Budapest! Thanks for the gerat memories!

The Spiral Staircase

Thrilled!
We went to the Szchenyi Baths in City Park and the Gellert Baths but couldn't muster the courage to try them. We still have a couple of weeks, so you never know. We don't like to telegraph our next place, but one of the 3 you guessed is correct....Thanks for reading!

Venezia
You've got the idea! One of the best things to do in Venice is walk and walk and walk....and get lost. It is so fun to stumble upon the little neighborhoods. Sounds like you made the most of your time here. Cheers!

Venezia!
We really enjoyed our time in Venice. We have been travelling for almost 4 years straight and I think it was my favorite place of all. We were walking by Accademia and saw the Wake Forest building. You're pretty lucky! I have to admit I was a little jealous....Thanks for reading and sharing your beautiful city!

The Surprise behind the iron curtain
You never cease to amaze me ! Your blog was so fascinating, from the pictures to the info ! You make me very anxious to go there. I don't have any immediate travel plans but I will include Budapest if at all possible. as I've previously stated, the photos are wonderful. They look like a travelogue . Keep sending all that you do, please !! A couple of things I'm wondering, what's the winter weather like? I picture really cold. Don't know why. Maybe thinking of Dr. Zhivago. And the other is what is the predominant religion ? Keep on movin' !

Thanks, Pat!
Thanks for reading! Budapest right now is actually warmer than Nashua! The highs are in the mid 50s; lows are the low 40s. I keep humming 'Lara's Theme' when it's really cold! As far as religion is concerned, about 40% of Hungarians are Christian. Thanks again for reading!

Parliament Building at Night

Nicely captured.
This is one of my favourite buildings. Like the Houses of Parliament with curves!

Parliament Building at Night

Thanks!
Thanks. I didn't think they could top the outside, but when we went in and saw the main entryway and where they keep the Hungarian Royal Crown, I was really amazed. Thanks for reading!

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!
