View from Castle Hill, January 2018
I turned 30 last month. Depressed by the thought of spending a seminal birthday at work, I booked a trip to Budapest and spent three days moseying around the city enjoying the local sights and food. It snowed frequently, and persistent grey clouds hung over the city, meaning that the Danube manifested itself as a murky brown rather than blue (Strauss lied!). Despite this, the inclement weather only added to the ambience, and I’m happy to have seen out my 20’s in such a beautiful location.
