    A Day in Hungary

    Our one-day trip to Budapest quite an interesting experience. Having traveled quite a lot our entire lives, we usually feel prepared for travels, especially single day trips. However, no amount of experience prepared us for our road trip to Budapest. Driving from Prague to Budapest takes about 8 hours, which isn’t too bad. And we didn’t have any issues in Czech Republic, or Slovakia for that matter. Our first problem was on the border between Slovakia and Hungary. We had to stop and pay for the highway toll, which really, really should not have been a issue. Yet somehow it was the first hiccup on our trip. We thought we…

This proved to be an adventure, as the GPS decided to guide us through a web of side roads and right past a…

    5 hours at the Frankfurt Airport

    When traveling back to Boston, I had a 5-hour layover in Frankfurt. This gave me plenty of time to walk around and see what this airport is about. My gate was Z50, so right after landing from Prague I headed for that area of the airport. The Frankfurt airport is huge, which means it looks extremely empty. At one point, it looked like I was completely alone. That didn’t bother me, I prefer the emptiness over crowded airports, where you constantly crash into somebody, because they are standing in the middle of the hall. One thing did bother me at the airport, though, the WIFI. Everywhere they advertised free WIFI,…
