Berlin, Prague and Budapest

I had some down time at work and thought it would be a good idea to spend it on holiday instead of going stir crazy at home. I've been hearing a lot about Budapest lately and I thought I just had to do it. But doing Budapest a lone wouldn't have felt fulfilling so I thought I'd go on a long trip to - you guessed it; Berlin , Prague and Budapest. Berlin was really spread out, and being the smart ass that I am I thought I could walk most of the locations (it's only an inch on the map, come on). The 3 days I had in Berlin was definitely not enough to get a good "feel" of Berlin. There was just too much to see and do. Only piece of advice would be to skip the Mauerpark, maybe it was just the day I went but it looked like a random assortment of junk. Not buried treasure, but things like VHSs and the assorted ball mice. Do the Berlin alternative pub crawl though, definitely fun night out. 🙂 http://alternativeberlin.com/berlin-alternative-pubcrawl Prague was so scenic, the sort of place you'd go on holiday for sure. Old town squares,  beautiful bridges, cobbled paths, small Czech bars all over, great place to be. I really regret not doing a night out at the theater and Kutna Hora  home of the bone church. Sure it's a one trick pony but you know when it comes out on TV (and it will) you can point and it and wink  and say "yeah I've been there" .

The weather started to pick up and I was there during the Spring Festival! Every picture just came out so well. Attached are the few pictures from Budapest. Seems to be a very trendy place to be, big art culture from what I saw.  If you do decide to go, check out the ruin bars which in principle is a "pop up bar".
