It’s that time again; time for the last article in this series and, as always, it’s The Good, the Bad, and the Thank-you’s. While I’ll stay in Budapest for a couple more weeks until I leave for the next location you’ve chosen (have you voted? Still a couple more days left), this will be the time I catch up on my work and maybe, just maybe get one of thoses Thai massages that are very popular in Budapest. I don’t think they’re that creepy kind of massage, although the posters can be kind of creepy, with Thai women looking at the camera either seductively or with those “I’m a little-girl come play with me” looks. Still, as long as there’s no “happy ending,” I’ll take it.


If you’re new to this, this is where I tell you what’s great about the location, what’s not-so-great, and I thank those who have helped me along the way. I also give you all of the links to the accommodations, restaurants, activities, organizations, and anyone else I’ve provided a link for in the series. But here, they’re all gathered together and grouped according to type (it’s a great one to save in case you ever do a trip to this location). But wait, there’s more; this is also where I tell you how much I spent, and on what so, if you decide to do a similar trip, you’ll have an estimated budget.


So, without further ado:


The Good






The Bad



The Thank-You’s

Thermal Bath

While I’m still here, the following are my approximate expenses from January 30 – February 18; pretty much what I’ve written about here. Please remember, I traveled in low-season and costs in the summertime will, most likely, be a little higher.

Accommodations – $633 (Like I said, it’s a really inexpensive city.)

Activities – $137*

Transportation – $30.80

Transportation from Freiburg, Germany to Budapest, Hungary – $166

Food and Drink – $282 (Staying in an apartment and cooking can be very economical as can flirting with strangers and having them buy drinks, not that I’d do this. . .)

*Includes actual cost of all activities including some which were discounted provided for media consideration. As always, no positive reviews were guarantees for considerations.

Note – Average exchange rates used – 1 Euro = US$1.14 and 100 Forints = US$0.37
