Budapest

Here we are in Budapest, Hungary after taking an airplane from Naples to Budapest, 1 bus and 2 trains to our airbnb… With 3 kids under 3 and 4 purses… HERE. WE. ARE! First time traveling with my 2 kids, (2.5 years old and 7 months old) It is fun, it is challenging, it is awesome, it is exhausting… But I’m glad my friend is with us and her 15 months old giving me a hand! We have walk so much, carrying the babies, taking the strollers, walking and walking. Budapest is such a beautiful city, the people is amazing, very generous and kind specially with young children.

The food… So far, nothing to die for… But we’ll see what the next days bring for us.

About friendship… Oh well, things are pretty good, but always remember… It is really different to travel with someone else and with kids. Flexibility and eating is a MUST! I used to travel alone and it was really great but lonely (although I didn’t care too much about being alone!) Now we wake up at 6am (usual time for my toddler) and by the time we are ready to go it is about 10am. Between 6am and 10am I have changed diapers twice, prepared breakfast, prepare our bag for the day and convinced my toddler to get dressed!

Anyway, so far everything is going better than expected and I think we make a good team. 

If you can visit Budapest, do it! It is a very beautiful city and really affordable. 

Suitcases

And here we are… packing again, leaving for a new short adventure to Budapest!!! Last week when I moved from Pittsburgh to Italy (indefinitely) I had to leave 8 suitcases with everything I had! So, 4 suitcases went back to my old place and 4 stayed at the airport waiting for my friend to pick them up. I guess… I HAD to konmari! Well… things go and come. 

As I was saying, tomorrow we will be flying to Budapest. It would be: me, my friend and our 3 children under 2 years old. We are planning to ride the train to Bratislava and Vienna, so wish us luck!
