Winter Trip to Budapest

Hello everyone! I'm back, at least for now. My first few posts will be catching up with all the things I have been up to during December / my Christmas holiday. Joe and I went for a mini break in Budapest just a week before our actual holiday from work. Originally Sweden was going to be our desired destination but we discovered that Budapest is a beautiful, historic and interesting city just perfect for a weekend trip. It has just enough sights to fill a few days, it has beautiful thermal spas all over the place (scroll down to the bottom) and a relatively big Christmas Market where we spent most our evenings. I hope you'll enjoy my little selection of photos!!
The old town.

View of the city from a mountain on which the old town is situated.

Checking directions.

Beautiful lamp posts all over the city.

Mulled wine on the Christmas Market.

Hungarian Christmas Market speciality: Kurtoskalacs (i.e. Chimney Cake)

Budapest's Széchenyi Thermal Spa with outside pool. It was so beautiful and relaxing. I loved it!!
