Welcome back!

I hope you all had a nice Easter break, and hopefully managed to get some rest from your studies. My ‘break’ has certainly been busy! Over the past few weeks, I think I’ve spent more time at Warwick than I’ve spent at home (slight exaggeration, but that’s what it feels like!)! I had an assignment due yesterday, which has kept me busy. To say I was relieved to finally finish and submit it, would be an understatement! I’d like to say that I’m going to have a breather now, but with two 3000 word assignments looming, that’s not really possible. However, I have decided to give myself this weekend off!

My Easter break wasn’t all study though. I did manage to have some quality family time, which was great! This also included a lovely trip to Budapest (Hungary). I went there, at the start of the Easter holiday, for a 4-night break with my husband and daughter. For those of you who haven’t been, it’s a beautiful city. We had a great time. The public transport is fab; we travelled by metro, tram, bus, taxi and boat! The city is split into Buda and Pest, with the Danube flowing between them. We stopped on the Pest side, a short metro ride from the centre. The Pest side is flat, whereas the Buda side is hilly (not the easiest for sightseeing when you have a pushchair!). The food was lovely, the people were friendly and there was loads to see and do. Even though we were only there for 4-nights, we managed to take in a lot of sights. We did a free walking tour on our first full day, to get our bearings. After that, we were off exploring what Budapest has to offer. And, we certainly weren’t disappointed. street_art.gifruin_bars.gif

Some of my sightseeing highlights were: St. Stephen’s Basilica, Ruin Barthe Royal Palace, the beautiful bridges, the street art, the Hungarian Parliment building at night and a boat trip on the Danube.

These are just a few of the highlights of the trip though. Narrowing it down to only 6 wasn’t an easy task!

Sadly, the trip now feels like a lifetime ago. However, I had a well-needed break from my studies, spent some quality time with my family, and I visited a new country. Plus, I’m now ready to take on the 3rd term!

Overall, I couldn’t have asked for a better Easter holiday! 🙂
