Chorin Abbey

Back in August, my sister visited us in Berlin. And during the time she was here, we decided to do a daytrip outside of Berlin during a weekend. So we went to Chorin. We decided to go during the weekend because train tickets were cheaper, especially since there were three of us. So off we went, to the north, to Chorin, a town in Brandenburg. This is a small town, but the thing to see here is the Brick Gothic abbey.

Hungarian State Opera House

For some reason, when I spent two weeks in Budapest back in 2008, I didn't do much sight-seeing. I remember seeing things, but I also remember having just stayed in my parents' flat for a bit. Anyway, this is one of the things I didn't see back then. So when I had the chance to spend some more time back in July, I went ahead and visited this building, the Hungarian State Opera House. I paid a visit to this architectural wonder, by doing a guided tour, before I went to the airport to fly back to Berlin.

Islamophobia? Excuse me?

I don't know how to begin this post. What I do know is that there are plenty of thoughts that have been brewing in my head recently, and I need to write it down to get it off my head. Where do I begin? Right, let me begin with Paris.

Liszt Ferenc Memorial Museum and Research Centre

Last summer, I was in Budapest for a short while in order to attend a wedding. I had an extra day, and therefore I opted to take that as an opportunity to do some sight-seeing in the city. I have been to Budapest before years ago, but there were still plenty of sights around the city that I haven't visited. This time, I opted to visit the Liszt Ferenc Memorial Museum and Research Centre, which is a reconstruction of Franz Liszt's last Budapest flat on the first floor of the old Academy of Music.
