We had a quite unusual and rather special Foodie Tour this weekend with my travellers. Instead of visiting several markets and shops in the city we focused on the Pig Slaughtering Festival held on this beautiful and sunny weekend in Budapest.

I can’t tell you how much we were overwhelmed with all the sausages and meat, the amazing smells and flavours. We tasted so many different things that in 4 hours I ate just as mush as I usually do in a week.

I’m very proud of all our meat products and what I can recommend you the most is to try mangalica sausage, which is probably the best of the best.

I woke up early this morning and witnessed a most unique moment: the sun rising up over the beautiful buildings of Pest. It was just a few seconds but made my entire day.

Tip: the best location in Budapest to watch sunrise is the top of the Fisherman’s Bastion (I took the video and the picture from there) or the top of Gellért hill.
