Breakup Song

Day 63: “Think about your last breakup. What song do you think should have been playing at that moment?” I have never really had a breakup. I haven’t really dated anyone in the long term tradition sense of dating. I have mostly been alone all my life. I tried a few times, but only because […]

#1052 Adele – 21

Adele! Who hasn’t heard of her? I mean really who? I remember her second album 21 so clearly. I was living in Budapest and everything was going good for me. I may have been stressed financially, but I had friends, food, and a flat. What made this album different is that other artists were singing […]

Smoking in France

i noticed something here that i had not noticed in the Hungarians, but know to be true of them as well; the French people smoke a lot. It is a bit strange since the government seems to be against it and they have banned smoking indoors, but you can smoke in the tram stops and […]

A Walk In The Park

My best friend, Pál Tamás, and i decided to take a walk in the Városliget (City Park) in Budapest. We found street art and a great cafe to eat a hamburger, in fact it was the best burger i have had in Hungary. If you are travelling to Budapest and want to eat a very delicious hamburger, then […]

Scenes From The Road Of Racism

After i returned to Germany, where i stayed in my friend’s caravan, i travelled to Hungary in a hired van. There are many people who drive vans across Europe and they rent space out to people looking for a less expensive alternative than the normal modes of transport across Europe. It is cheaper, but the […]
