APR 8, 2016 – I arrived in Budapest and was impressed how close it was to Vienna, yet how foreign it seemed to me because I couldn’t understand a word of the written language. Oystein, a Norwegian exchange student, had agreed to be my host here, and he even had time to show me around. I loved the city for its street art, but also for the “ruin bars” and other alternative nightlife outlets. Budapest has the beauty of an ancient capital, with the vibe of a modern student city. I will return for sure.
