Krakow

Krakow ALSO had an easter market, this time with pierogies! I love pierogies. I had them for lunch and dinner both days we were there. Mushroom pierogies, cabbage pierogies, potato pierogies, lentil pierogies, spinach pierogies… yum. We found two really cool coffee shops while we were in Krakow, and of course, the mound, and a yummy vegetarian restaurant, and the contemporary art museum.

Prague

Prague is a beautiful city. We were there the week before easter, so there was an easter market in the Old Town Square, where they were, oddly, selling a lot of our favorite Hungarian foods (I got langos)!  Of course, there was also beer (at the beer museum), the Astronomical Clock, and bubbles! The bubbles would make a good Renn Fayre project I think.

Spring Break Travels

Last week was spring break! I went to a lot of amazing places, to be seen in the next couple of posts. Here are some pictures from the night train we took from Budapest to Prague! It was cramped, but cozy. I was excited because it was like a slumber party.

Szilvásvárad

Today I went hiking in Szilvásvárad! We had a little trouble getting there… we weren’t sure where our bus stop was, and then we missed it, and then the bus driver pulled over in the middle of nowhere and shouted, “Szilvásvárad!” at us… but we got there eventually!

Also, spring is here!

I made a cowl! It’s the “Triune” pattern on Ravelry. I knitted it with some Malabrigo that Aya sent me!

From the Citadel in Budapest!

Vienna

This weekend, I went to Vienna! In summary, I drank a lot of cappuccinos, went up the tower, and checked out the Naschmarkt. We also walked around and explored the city a bit on foot.

Bratislava

This weekend I went to Bratislava, Slovakia! It was about 2 and a half hours away from Budapest by train. The first day we explored the Old Town, walked up to see the castle, and then went on a free walking tour. The next day we dined on garlic cream soup, and walked up to another hill to get a view of the city.
