Budapest is one of the coolest cities in the world.
I know you think you can say that about a ton of cities, but have you been to Budapest yet? I was only there for a short 3 days (I could have stayed for a week easily). You could say this city is the best of both worlds because on one side of the Danube you have old school Buda and on the other side you have the new kid Pest.
You all know I was obviously drinking wine when I was here. But did you know that Hungary produces some of the best wines in the world? They’re known for their wine called, Tokaji. Tokaji is a sweet white wine that is usually made from grapes that have Noble Rot.
There are 4 main wine producing regions in Hungary; Eger, Tokaj, Villány and Somló.
