Nut macaron, failed or passed?

I'm flying in my Christmas spirit clouds, and started to be the baking angel in the kitchen for a while! :) After the gingerbreads, I decided to bake something new.  This was my first time to bake macaron... 
The taste is wonderful, but the shape... could be better. :) But I know what went wrong... 
Anyway, I fell in love with my little darlings, first babes, so I dare to challenge them in a photo competition in Junglefrog blog. They are not the perfect macarons, but they bring the Christmas spirit, with their sweetness, and somehow they reminds me of my old snowmen, who slipped also from being perfect , they were always  a little bit gawky, but I loved them, and was really sad when they melted.

Visiting the biggest Christmas fair in Budapest

I've visited the Christmas fair in Vörösmarty square last night. I was curious about it, I like visiting it every year, it always brings me the Christmas spirit, and this time wasn't an exception, either. So let's see what shall we find there this year! :)

This is the 14th time, that this fair is organised, so we can say, that this is quite a new custom here. Originally this came from Vienna, especially from queen Maria Teresa, who has the first Christmas tree in our country.  But every time it's worth going and looking this fair, the atmosphere is fantastic. :)

Stuffed Golden apples

As winter comes, we need to take cear of ourselves more attentive, like we should eat more fruits, to get more vitamine C-s. Therefore, I made this dessert for my Granny's birthday instead of the usual cake. Fortunately she liked it. :)

Ideas for present making
Some days ago I celebrated my friend's birthday. I like making home-made presents, they are seem to be more personal. 

So, this time, I made him a coffee box, with coffee specialities inside.

How did I do that?

November is all about geese. We can find events, and festivals around Saint Martin's day mainly everywhere, when the most popular meal is the goose with the drink -the new wine. 
What is the connection between the geese and St. Martin?

It's snowing!!!

Hello Dear Readers,

It's not actually a proper tour proposer, but it's a situation report (sitrep) from Hungary.
The reason for that: It's snowing!!! In october! Here! :D
Well, actually, in Budapest it was like raining, because everything became wet, the snow melted immediately, but most of the parts of Hungary have got a nice white covering. :)
There are some pretty images from one of the weather report pages http://www.idokep.hu/percrol-percre 

Bonjour Chers Lecteurs,

Ce n'est pas vraiment recommandation de voyage, mais c'est un rapport de situation  de la Hongrie.
La raison à cela: Il neige! En octobre! Ici! : D
Eh bien, en fait, à Budapest, c'était comme pleut, parce que tout a été mouillé, la neige a fondu immédiatement, mais la plupart des parties de la Hongrie ont reçu une couverture belle blanc. :)
Il ya quelques belles images de l'une des pages de rapport http://www.idokep.hu/percrol-percre

Kedves Olvasóim!

Bizonyára észrevettétek, hogy beköszöntött a téli idő. Mutatok pár képet az időkép jóvoltából, hogy a hó hogy elvarázsolta kicsiny országunk legtöbb részét! :)

Tram 2 - among the 10 most beautiful tramways!

According to the new book of National Geographic - Tours of a Lifetime 2012 - travelers selected the 10 most beautiful tramways of the WORLD! :)

Our favourite tram, Tram number 2 is the 7th in the list! :) 
We are really proud of it, I think that it worth the title. I'm travelling by that every single day when I go to my University. 

When You travel by that , You can see the Danube, with the view of one of the UNESCO World Heritage - the riverbanks with the Castle of Buda, the Gellérthill, the Matthias church, and the Pest side, where it circulates , the Academy of Siences, our biggest hotels -Gresham Palace, Mariott, Inter Continental... And the last but not least the Paraliment (the  second biggest Parlaiment of Europe, the first is in Great- Britain)

I love it the most at night, with the manifique lights.

What is even prettier than that?
The Christmas Tram 2 - with extra decoration! It's like a dream! :)
