The 2 tram in Budapest runs along the Danube on the Pest side of town. It is incredibly scenic, especially at night when the bridges and buildings are illuminated. National Geographic (Journeys of a Lifetime) rated it one of the top ten trolley rides in the world, and UNESCO designated the Danube river side a World Heritage Site.
So sit back and enjoy the views from the tram route as we ride down a shoreline created for an empire.

All Souls Day in Central Europe is a day to honor the memory of deceased family members. It is a national holiday in Hungary. These pictures are from Farkasréti Cemetery up in the hills of Budapest on the “Buda side.” It is the final resting place for Béla Bartók, George Solti, Zoltán Kodály, and many other accomplished Hungarians.
Street emotions of Athens and Hydra, Greece – from melancholy children to joyful lovers, from pensive fishermen to the reverent silhouette of a priest. Greece is a street photographers canvas waiting to be filled! Enjoy!
Beautiful fall day in Budapest! After listening to Peter Turnley, I realized I need to keep my eyes constantly open on the street. Thank you Peter!
