Re: Budapest Travel Tips #1 - Transportation

Your guess is correct, Keleti is the East station :) Take subway M4 (green line), it has a terminus there so there's only one way. Get off at Kalvin square (3rd stop) and change for subway M3 (blue line) to the direction of Ujpest Kozpont. Nyugati (West) station is the 4th stop. From there you can u...

Re: Budapest Travel Tips #1 - Transportation

You can buy single tickets for a ride (flat rate, no zones in Budapest) for 350 HUF (1.20 EUR) but it's a bit expensive for short rides ...

Re: T-shirt size chart

Hi Lizzie, take a fit old t-shirt you like and measure "A" from the side of the neck line to the bottom and "B" (width) just under the sleeves from armpit to armpit in inches. Then use this converter for cm-s and choose the closest size from the chart. https://www.inches-to-cm.com/ Of course, it's O...

T-shirt size chart

Hi Friends,
some of you mentioned concerns about the t-shirt sizes so I asked the maker and we got a size chart. Check it and send me an email if you need a change in your registration. (The measurement is in cm not inches.)
