Hey all!

I know I haven't been around for a while, but thanks to Johnny I thought I would pop in while bored in my hotel in Boston and share some of my favorite photos from my trip to Eastern Europe this past summer.

This was of course a very brief overview of some of my favorite things from my 2 month trip. There are a few more pictures back in this thread http://shavenook.com/thread-update-trave...ansylvania

Thanks!

Thanks for sharing your images with us, Anthony. I've lived in South America and in Portugal, but I have never made it to Eastern Europe.

I liked the swimming spas all around Budapest. Steam rooms, pools, just so luxurious. There are some GREAT eating houses too, but you'll need to hunt them down. All depends what you like to eat, but Hungarian food can tend to be a bit on the meaty/heavy side so go slow, enjoy. Find a place that has some live music in the old style. It's quite an experience walking into some of these places that seem to hark back to a more lavish period frequently run by long-running families. Truly superb.
