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.

I knitted a hat for my roommate, Jackie! Here are Jackie and Paul in their matching hats, overlooking Bratislava.

I knitted this (4,2) torus link headband based off of this article:

It probably would have been better if I had knitted it a little bit wider to cover the ears; I was just too excited!

Graffiti of Venice

This was some of the graffiti I encountered while exploring Venice.
