I was opportuned to be among the delegates to go for women's conference in Budapest in Hungary. I appreciate this opportunity because I may never have thought of going on a holiday there as there are so many other popular European countries to be visited, but truth be told it was not a bad experience as I have not really gone out of uk in five years I've lived here except Nigeria which is like an every year custom that am willing to take a little break from.
I am not the only one guilty of procrastinating on kicking some stuff out of her bucket list, but life happens and we were not able to follow through especially when you have kids that always come first even before yourself, but no time is too late and getting away really clears your mind and gives you time to think of what's really important. Enough on what seems to be average man's problems. Budapest city is such a lovely place, the building structures there are beyond amazing and the creativity that goes into it is wonderful. Each building you look at in the city kind of tell a story which you will most definitely be attracted to, their main source of generating revenue is the tourism and to be candid they seem to be doing really well as the tourist tour the city through the night. What I just don't get is why they are really not trying to better themselves by trying their hands on some other things to generate revenue so that their citizens can benefit more. From what I gathered there is no much job opportunities and the world doesn't sit on their back side for things to happen anymore, I will give it to them in the department of management though as the building structures are still in their tip top shape unlike Nigeria whereby embezzlement and mismanagement is a must except you are cursed. All the columnist buildings look like they are recently built, the lifts to the top is like the ones I have seen in old movies which is really fascinating.
Another thing I noticed is the language Barrier which is like a big deal if you don't have a tour guide to show you around, they are also backward when it comes to communicating with the rest of the world. I am blessed to have my pastor as a tour guide who showed us a little of the city, stories he discoverd and heard after couple of years in the city. I really commend him for such a great job he is doing in that city. God will continue to make him grow from strength to strength.
The few people I met during the conference were so nice and are so enthuisiastic to learn the word of God, they are so kind hearted and warmed up to you like you've known them a long time although the cab men and shop attendants were not as nice as that , but in all is a great experience. If you are really interested in going they have some nice hotels with great views that are not really expensive. Hire a tour guide if you are not willing to pay double for your cab as they might take you elsewhere if they don't understand what you are saying. I wore a printed skirt from marks and spencer which was worn (here) crochet top worn (here) and (here) a flat sandal to work around and a big bag to keep all my stuff in one place.
