Friday Snapshots: Budapest to Kraków

Greetings from Poland, and happy Friday!

This week I’m updating from Kraków with a double-feature.  I’ve been a bit too wrapped up in trying to experience and enjoy my latest destinations to keep up all that well with blogging on top of my other responsibilities, but now that I’ve been in Kraków for nearly a full week, I’ve found a bit of free time to catch up.

If you’ve been following along on Snapchat (and if you haven’t, get on it! –> @lamochilera) you might know I had plans to head to Wroclaw today.  Well, surprise!  I’ll be staying in Kraków until the end of the weekend and I’ve just impulsively purchased tickets to a small electronic music festival in a city called Katowice about one hour from here.  I’ve been trying to make it to one of these European festivals all summer (like Sziget Festival in Budapest, which I regrettably missed last week) so when I stumbled upon this opportunity, I couldn’t resist.

Anyway, I’ve absolutely loved both Budapest and Kraków and only wish I had more time to spend in each.  They’ve got me seriously considering moving back to Eastern Europe to settle in for the long haul after my upcoming stint in Thailand.  There’s just something so captivating about these cities, and they’re so different from any of my previous travels that every new day is an adventure.

So without further ado, please enjoy this week’s snaps of my two favorite cities so far: Budapest, Hungary and Kraków, Poland.

    I haven’t been to Hungary or Poland! I have been intrigued by Eastern Europe. Hope to make it there this year or next! Great photos!
    ps. I am new to snapchat, but I’ve added you now! It seems like a fun way to find out about the gritty day to day things about people’s travel!

    Such beautiful photos. And also, I’m loving your Snapchat!! It’s something Aaron keeps pushing me to do, though I’m far too camera shy! You’re killing it though. Keep it up 🙂

      Haha I’m so glad you like it! It gets easier over time, I think, but it’s definitely strange putting yourself out there that way at first. Ya’ll know what my voice sounds like now! Oddly I think that’s the part I’m most self-conscious about…

    Great photos! I wish I had been in Budapest for Sziget, but I hadn’t even heard of it until after I visited! Enjoy the electronic music festival!

      Haha I didn’t know about Sziget either until a few days before arriving in Budapest, and by that point it was a little late to try to find people to go with. Oh well, the one I just went to in Poland was a blast! 😀

    This post makes me quite nostalgic. I lived in Krakow for a semester in college and absolutely fell in love with the city. Budapest is one of my favorite cities as well, love the Széchenyi Baths!
