    Budapest is fantastic. Excellent food and wine at reasonable prices. The Mangalica (it's a local kind of pork, I think) is worth a try. Palinka, a local liquor, is also worth a try, but will not be to everyone's taste.

    highly recommend this restaurant: http://www.costes.hu/intro.html

    Has anyone found particular tricks to reduce travel cost to Budapest? I'm on the east coast, and despite checking multiple airports and times of year, the cost seems fairly static.

    (From Chicago) flying to Dublin or Stockholm is dirt cheap and then you can then use an affordable EU airline like Ryan Air to connect.

    The key phrase was "particular tricks to reduce travel cost".

    I must be in the minority of individuals who doesn't have a RyanAir horror story. With that said, I still wouldn't use them again LoL.

    Lol, reminded me that I should buy my wife something since she's pretty cool about me going on this expensive trip!


    Good suggestions, thanks. I've heard the paprika is supposed to be good as well. I love pate

    Thanks for the suggestions. I love trying local food when I travel.


    I'm also from the east coast and don't have any recommendations, but I found the accommodations to be quite inexpensive

    Yes, Hungarian paprika is the best in the world. There are two kinds of paprika, hot and sweet.

    There is a nice restaurant close to the great Synagogue on Dohany street called Fausto that has
    an excellent duck confetti dish.

    This is interesting. It looks like my Vass Oxford's with the 180 degree Norwegian stitching have pegged waists.

    Got NWOB Vass Whisky Shell Derby, P2 Last off the bay a good while ago. Still have to take them in for orthopedic work before the wearer (not me) can use them. I'm not winning any awards for my photography, but I must say they're in a different league than the AEs and Aldens I wore in the past. The heft and styling is somewhat reminiscent of American brands, which I like, but without the clunkiness. This is the first Vass I've seen in person, but I'm pretty sold on them if I ever go back to wearing something other than scrubs, crocs and the occasional tennis shoe.

    Those look lovely - very conservative design but it just allows the quality of the leather and construction to shine through....

    Why thank you. It wasn't a conscious effort, but I find I tend to gravitate toward simpler designs, clean lines and subtlety in my clothing. Even though I won't be wearing these, a bit of my bias probably slipped through in choosing them.

    It's also my first pair of anything in Whisky Shell and I notice it's a bit darker than other whiskys(ies?). Suppose the variation in shell is part of what makes it so interesting.
