I just spent a weekend in Budapest and it was absolutely amazing. I had never been to Hungary before and didn’t know what to expect, lots of people have told me how much they loved it and how pretty it is, yet I wasn’t sure if I gonna love it too. But I did! I… Read More Hungary. A weekend in Budapest.
Last week I spent 2 days in the beautiful capital of Sweden. Stockholm was never on top of my where-to-go-next lists, I just wanted to visit a city in a Scandinavian country someday. But when I read about the Yayoi Kusama exhibit at Stockholms Modern Museum I wanted to go instantly. I found great flights… Read More Sweden. A quick trip to Stockholm.
I got back to NYC from Chicago around noon on Friday and checked into my hotel on the Bowery: the Bowery House where I had already stayed last year in May.

From Madrid I flew straight to JFK and was lucky enough to get through immigration within 45 minutes! A new record for me at JFK, I rememberd the lines to be much longer during last vistits. For this weekend I stayed at International Student Redisidence on 341 Broadway in Williamsburg, right a the Marcy Avenue stop.… Read More NYC. A weekend in May – recap
On my way to New York I had a 21 hour long layover in Madrid and this visit could be summed up as “walk, drink, eat, repeat”. After checking into my hostal on Calle Fuencarral I walked over to the Mercado de San Anton in Chueca. This market sells fruit, vegetables, meat, fish and cheese… Read More Spain. 21 hours in Madrid.
Before I flew to Florida in March I spent 3 days in Brussels. As a child and teenager I visited Brussels many times and always loved it but I hadn’t been back in about 15 years! So of course I took the time to see most of the tourist attractions, such as Kunstberg/Mont des Arts (photos 1&2), Galleries… Read More Recap. A weekend in Brussels.
At the beginnig of March I spent one week in South Florida visiting a good friend of mine who moved there a couple of years ago.

I just returned from a weekend trip to Rome and it was everything (and more!)

A weekend in Rome.
For my birthday last week I bought myself tickets to Milan for a short weekend trip. It was my 3rd time in Italy and first visit to Milan.

The mosquitos ( I got 20 bites within the first hour there!) and importunate selfie-stick… Read More Italy. 3 days in Milan.
From NYC I flew to Madrid and arrived at the airport about 10 am. I took the metro to Plaza de Espana and checked into my hostal on Gran Via.
