Under my coat I am wearing a cashmere sweater. I love the warmth it provides, but don't like the feel against my skin, so I am wearing a cotton button down under it.
My leather pants are the warmest pants I own. No wind will ever penetrate these. There is a slight stretch to the fabric making it also very comfortable to wear.

I love coming to Budapest as this is the city I grew up in. These picures are of my favorite parts of the city. Vaci street is a walking street with many shops to stop by. At the end of the street, at Vorosmarty square, there is a great Christmas market. Hungarian markets have many handcrafted gifts to choose from as well as traditional Hungarian food. I am eating langos, fried dough covered in sour cream and grated cheese. I also had the best hot chocolate of my life here!
Hosok tere is another favorite of mine. It is a giant square with statues towering over it. A short walk from Hosok tere is Vajdahunyad vara. This castle offers great architecture on the outside and a museum of agriculture on the inside. Right outside of the castle is an ice skating ring. In the summer it turns into a pond for rowing a boat and feeding ducks! We will have to come back in the summer next time!

We booked a hotel in the center of the city, so everything we wanted to see was within walking distance. We visited many Christmas markets. Viennese markets have many booths for food and drinks interspersed with a few booths offering handcrafted gifts. Holding a hot spiced wine is essential in keeping your fingers warm; nearly everyone walks around with one, even children, as it comes in an alcohol free version.
The Spanish Riding School is also a must see, especially for horse lovers like my husband and I. We decided to see not only a night performance, but a morning practice as well. It was very interesting to see the training of horses at different ages and levels.
