Budapest Hungary Cat Cafe

Last month, my husband and I visited Budapest Hungary.  I'm not much of a cat person, but he is, so when I saw the card at our hotel for 10% off if you took in the card, I decided going to the cat cafe could be interesting.

I'd never heard of such a thing, but I don't have TV, so it's not unusual for me to miss news of unique things like this.  From my understanding, there are a number of these in the world.

The food was good, and everything cat cat themed.  There were rules for visiting, such as the cats had the reign of the cafe, no flash photography, etc.

To keep things sanitary, the food was prepared in an area closed off by glass so the cats couldn't get in the food prep area.  The cats' litter box was downstairs.

Budapest Hungary 3-D Art Gallery

Last month, my husband and I returned from a trip to Budapest, Hungary.  This is a first in a series of posts relating some of the things we did while we were there.  I received no compensation for this post, it was a fun experience, and wanted to share this neat idea.

Many places in Budapest close at 6 pm.  Because of jet lag, we were still fully awake of an evening and not really into the nightclub scene so we look at the lobby cards to see if we could find anything open a little later.  There was a 10% off coupon for the 3D Art Gallery.  Those of you who are regulars to this blog know I'm a coupon fan, and to be using a coupon overseas just made me laugh.

Book Review: Travel & Shop The World For Free

FTC disclaimer:  This post contains affiliate links.  All opinions are my own.  I borrowed this book with the Kindle Unlimited program.

I wish I could give a higher rating to Travel And Shop the World For Free.  I really wish I could.  However, I feel it is more of a "Travel to England and France" guide.   Plus the information is geared towards Australians.  This isn't what I was expecting, and while still informative, I would have liked more general knowledge -- even if she had asked the shipping company information on shipping items to the USA would have been helpful.  (Yes, I know, I'm being an ugly American with that statement, but there was nothing to indicate this was mainly for antiquing in England and shipping to Australia.)

That said, this *is* a great book about antiquing in England and France with brief mentions of other places.  Because England and France are not high on my travel list, this book wasn't as valuable to me as I wished it was.  Plus, living on the East Coast of the USA rather than Australia means I wouldn't really have the opportunity for stop-overs in Asia as she mentions.
