Visiting the same place twice in the same year doesn't happen very often with me. In fact just visiting the same place twice isn't a common feat for me, except for those I have roots or a special connection with (like studying Chinese for 4/5 years).

So why Budapest? I don't really know myself. It did feel like I missed out on a lot of things last time - and I had - on top of being weirdly attracted to a place I know nothing about. I found myself enjoying wandering about an anonymous European city.
"Anonymous" for me at first because I'm used to knowing quite a lot about the places I visit, one way or another. But I believe Budapest has now its own vibe, feel and set of images in my head. A mix of super cool bars and nightlife, baths and riverside, inner courts and food fests.
Having a good friend living there is also a good source of motivation. The opportunity to recount experiences and choices with someone sharing similar values or goals always provides great insights into the path that your life is taking.
