Goodbye to Budapest

My flight back to Berlin will leave in a few hours, and I'm relaxing in the top floor café of the Alexandra bookstore, one block away from the בית הכנסת הגדול של בודפשט (how cool - the blog's text editor is bidirectional!). This is a great place to hang out, drink coffee and get work done in a cheery skylit room with lots of comfortable seating. And there's a fine wine shop on the ground floor of the bookstore. Very classy.

Before leaving, I had a look at the double rooms at the Danube Guest House where I stayed: very nice I think. It's a great place for single travellers or couples looking for budget accommodations that are spotless and offer friendly, first-class value. But I didn't choose the place for it's price. The location is hard to beat. I'm five minutes walking distance from the metro station where lines 1, 2 and 3 (yellow, red and blue) intersect. Getting around doesn't get much easier.

It's been a fantastic week, not only because I met a lot of great people and learned a lot about technologies which I think will play an important role in the language industry in the coming years, but also because I've been able to discover a new favorite city. I'll be back.

  1. Hi Kevin,

    thank you for writing this detailed report about MemoQFest, which I think will be very appreciated by the users that could not make it to Budapest this time.

    Also, it was good too meet you in Budapest and I hope the next MemoQFest will be as enjoyable as this one!
