Back in Pest

So good to be back in Budapest. Even though I speak less than 20 words of Magyar, I feel at ease in this city, so different from my home in Stockholm for the past 2.5 years. Fair enough, my girl is Hungarian, her family and friends live here and it’s our default holiday destination, so […]

New Progress Pics for May

I’ve just updated my Progress Page to display the latest photos (for May). The pictures were actually taken by Liliane after I arrived in Luzern as things got a little crazy during the last few days in Budapest.

Krisztina, co-owner / teacher at Bikram Yoga Kozpont was on the ground chasing leads while I was working cyberspace – emailing friends, posting on Facebook and sending out Couch Surfing requests.

In Budapest, just in time

Before leaving Australia I decided not to purchase a round the world ticket (quote approx. AUD $9000) in favor of booking each segment of the journey on the fly. I calculated it would cost me about $1500 more but this gave me the most flexibility in case my destinations changed. Of course I was warned […]
