A Trip To See My Parents In Budapest: Part 2



The last two days of my trip included more walking and riding around the city, more delicious food, a swimming break at the thermal baths, Hungary Independence day celebrations and a few important stops with my parents to say goodbye to their close friends, which luckily for me, took us into their homes for some authentic Hungarian food, history and culture.

Some captions below:

Stunning. Once again, I feel like I'm hitching a ride on your backpack tag. Thanks for the ride!

Love these pictures and the expressions you caught. Got a bit teary-eyed thinking about mom and dad packing up and moving... Love that you're there.

Looks like a great trip. Glad you were able to go again before your parents left. Also, welcome back to life in the US mom and dad Jackson!

We never made it to Hungary on our big trip six years ago. And I was pretty bummed about that. Now, even moreso!
Great shots, as always.
