Stop What You're Doing & Go to Budapest

How many people can tell me where Budapest is? Put it on a map? Name the country? Anyone? Probably not many people outside of the country, travel industry, or their neighbors can point to it.

Budapest is the capital of Hungary and the most populous city in the country. It is also one of the largest cities in the European Union! The city dates back before the year 1 AD when it was settled by the Celts. It was then occupied by the Roman Empire. It was ruled or influenced by many powers, cultures, and historical events: the Ottoman Empire, Bulgarians, the Italian Renaissance, the Tartar, the Turkish, Austria-Hungary, and the Habsburgs. It was occupied and controlled by Nazi Germany and eventually was behind the Iron Curtain. Whew. What a history!

As a result, there are a remarkable amount of historical buildings in various architectural designs. The history and culture is incredibly rich and interesting. There are so many beautiful sights to see and interesting facts to learn about Budapest. I am all about history and learning about new cultures so Budapest really appeals to me.

Not convinced? Here are some things to do and see in Budapest!

My name is Siggi-dubbed by my American friends because of the Icelandic yogurt-I am a writer, polyglot, and aspiring expat, not a cup of yogurt (unfortunately).

My love for travelling began with a trip to Iceland and Sweden to visit my family when I was just 15 years old. I spent so long dreaming of the possibilities of life abroad but I always figured these dreams were too far reached. Flash forward almost 10 years, here I am again, both cursing and thanking this damn travel bug.
