Sunday Smack

Happy Sunday, all! 

In Hungary we are past a nice long weekend that I have spent in the countryside. I am typing these words on a train back to Budapest, that was delayed 70 (!) minutes (Edit: departure time was delayed 70 minutes, and another 60 minutes was added during the train ride, so I got home more than two hours later than planned, I’m not one to complain, but I wish I could say this is not typical in Hungary…).

That means I had more than enough time to catch up with my reading for this post. Hope you’ll check out some of my travel reads too.
