Budapest & Amsterdam

Well I blinked and another month went by!

I’ve traveled to Budapest & Amsterdam since my last post; I’m obsessed with both of them {my love for Europe will never stop growing}. Budapest was overflowing with beautiful buildings and statues at every corner. Never would of thought a parliament building could be a main attraction. The best part of that trip however was going to St. Stephen’s Basilica during a Sunday service. It was crazy the feeling I got as soon as I walked in there. We’ve been to plenty of churches but seeing a service going on was a once in a lifetime experience. If you are traveling anywhere in Europe I would highly recommend seeing just part of a service. Even if it’s in a different language, it’s just awesome to see that you can still understand what’s going on all the way across the world.

Hungarian Parliament Building

Amsterdam was equally another city that’s worth all of the hype. Just walking around the streets makes you feel like you’re in a movie during one of those happy montages. Unless your walking through the red light district then you’re in an entirely different movie.

There are canals everywhereeeee, I really do mean almost every street. We went to the Van Gogh Museum which was a crowd favorite. The popular Amsterdam sign is also right besides this. I’ve come to love art while being here, which is crazy because museums used to bore me to death. Also if you don’t owe a bike I don’t think you could live there. Everyone bikes, young & old. It’s insane.

Other Things We Did

  • Anne Frank House. So we really wanted to do this but we didn’t get tickets in time. Make sure to buy tickets in advance!
  • If you’re into this sort of thing…. try out some coffee shops!

With the weeks that I have left here keep getting smaller and smaller, I’ve come to realize that I’m not coming back the same person. I’ve been to 9 cities over the past 2 1/2 months and am on the way to Paris as I’m writing this {the amount of pastries I’m about to eat is going to be world record breaking}. So if anyone can find out a way to slow down time a little bit, HMU because I don’t think I’m quite ready to go home yet.

    I’m so glad that you’re having a fun, growing, learning experience in Europe. The worship service sounds fascinating. Now you’re making me want to go next. Hope your final weeks bring you plenty of blessings! Philip Beisswenger
