Budapest was the place where we met. Arriving to the train station, we already realized that this city is more beautiful and more alive than we could ever imagine. Our kind Hungarian hosts welcomed us with in a cosy bar in the center with their traditional drink Palinka. It is kind of like our Serbian Rakija, so it felt like home.
