I was on holiday earlier this month and my wife and I had decided to visit Budapest. We had not been to Hungary before and had long discussed it so took the opportunity to do so. I can honestly say that it was an absolute wonder to visit. For those interested in history, it has that in abundance and some of it heartbreakingly sad. For those that love scenery and architecture I can tell you it is visually breathtaking. I took over 1300 pictures and we walked over 47.5 miles in the five days we spent there. We only skimmed the surface of what this delightful city has to offer.

Everywhere one turns there is something else to see. In truth, I am surprised we ended up seeing as much as we did, it was pure visual and information overload. Couple this with the wonderful café culture and delightful helpful people we encountered, it is on our list to go back and explore the city and its surrounding environs more fully.

As you can imagine, with so many images taken, I will be sharing with you and the readers of Woodcarving magazine many more pictures over the coming months.

Send me some images of what you have seen architecturally that you have found interesting.

Have fun,
