I am simply in love with Budapest. The capital city of Hungary. Took around 12 hours by bus from Paris to reaching Budapest. But I did enjoy every minutes of it. Especially when there was a different view from the glamor of West Europe to the countryside scenery near to Hungary border. It was my first experience of backpacking on my own. A trip where I completely being as who I was, without anyone know who really I am. I was so excited and happy. Like every inch of my blood cell dancing in a joy, eager to feel the adventurous journey. And yes, I got the adventure. An experience I will never forget. A totally beautiful city that will struck in my mind forever.

Photo 08 : I took this photo in one of the dangerous street in Budapest, dunno why, I feel it’s fascinating to capture.
It was a hot day in the summer but the heat seemed not make me feeling irritated, reaching 40 degrees when I was there. Otherwise, it was evoking my adrenaline to explore the city. As I told, trip to Budapest was my first solo traveling. Literally I was in completely stranger area, different culture, away from home, only bring certain money and should be survived with it, for the first time. In a land where the people not speak English, where they don’t know me as Dea, but I felt so much freedom to be me. It was really a good memory and experience.
