Gone to the land of spas and home of Mozart

I am on holiday for the next 9 days to the land of spas and architecture glory. I hope my books are not soak if I ever try to read them in the spa! I will visit and comment on your blogs when I come back.

Don’t go away, I’ll be right back. 😉


Széchenyi Bath, Budapest


A video of other bath houses in Budapest, including Gellert Bath, are available to view by clicking on thumbnail after Széchenyi.

  1. Oh enjoy, I love Vienna (haven’t been to the other places but I’m sure they’re wonderful too).

    • Steph, Please do. I actually love Budapest more than Vienna. It’s just so much diverse and exciting. I have taken like 2000 pictures and I’m wondering which one to post, but will sure share some highlights! 😉

    • Mel U, the eye witness travel guides are awesome aren’t they? I love those glossy and illustrated pages, 3-dimensional structural explanation of a building and place.

Ratings Defined

0 = Abandon the book after first chapter

1 = Waste of paper, we will see what the environmentalist say about this!

2 = Skip it, read the book if you have got nothing better to do

2.5 = An average book, easily forgettable.

3 = A good read.

3.5 = A good entertaining read, a page-turner

4 = So glad that I read the book, a book with substance and invaluable for future reference

4.5 = So glad that I read the book, would pester everyone to read it, invaluable, I would want to own it and wouldn't mind a second read (something that I seldom do)

5 = The book is so good that I feel like I am on scale 4 and 4.5, and more, it blew me away and lingers on my head for weeks!

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. - Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
