When I first visited Budapest in September 1992 I didn’t much care for the place.
The Danube was far from blue and I found the city centre traffic a bit much, so much so that I hot-footed to Prague at the earliest opportunity.
When I returned with Mrs Wilbur in the winter c.2005 this all changed. We had a brilliant time and I quickly realised that it was the time of year that made all the difference.
This photo of the Parliament Building was taken on the second trip.
