About Me

Hi Surfers everywhere in the world!!!

Before you send me a request, please make sure to read my profile and check my availabilities. Please note, if the calendar is blocked, it’s blocked. Don’t try to hack the matrix by sending a message with unavailable dates or later in the horizont. :)

I spent 6 weeks in Tanzania so my mindset changed significantly and I would like to keep that positive vibe as long as I can.

And last but not least I like hosting ladies with references (having a reference is a must to anyone) to stay with me. You know: my house, my rules :)

Anyways, I am a naturally curious, crazy and cheerful lady with strong interest of cuisine, sports, books and dogs. If you like to stay with me, we won’t bored I guarantee.
If you eat plant-based, it’s not an issue for me, I can serve you some delicious vegan dishes also.

This is my fav, ‘let the stress gone’ place in Budapest:
Other fun place: https://flippermuzeum.hu/en/main-page/

In summer, the best beach is Gellért! I bit pricy but there’s always place for a sunbathing. Don’t forget to mention Kopaszi gát, Dürer kert, Barba Negra for alternative music (outdoor), Budapest Park for Hungarian concerts (outdoor). If you like handpan, let’s go for him: https://www.facebook.com/AfronautaNagy He is incredible.

Tourists are always hesitating between the termal baths. The biggest hype is for Szechenyi of course. If you like the traditional, less touristy spots, I would highly recommend: Király, Lukács or Veli Bej. (Gellért is stunning also but I am sure it’s closed due to maintenance)

Ruin bars: Szimpla, in Gozsdu court: Központ, Arborétum, Telep.

Traditional hungarian dished for a reasonable price and beat in town: Hoppácska, Gettó gulyás, Erzsi mama, Náncsi néni, Fleischer restobar (modern Hungarian)
If you like Turkish food, Bogazici in the 13th district is a GAME changer, believe me! That’s my true love and happy place.

Vegan food: Veganlove (junk), pingrumba, Jimmy’Z Vegan, Leila’s authentic lebanese cuisine, Naspolya nassolda, Govinda, Plantmilkyway, Kozmosz, Tökmag, Madal.

Best artisan bakeries and croissant: Artizán, Aran, Panificio il Basilico, Jacques Liszt, Nor/ma, Butter brothers, Freya.

Wine / skyebar: St Andreas wine & skybar.

My fav place to eat: Artizán (bakery), Hoppácska (chimney cake, Erzsi mama and Náncsi néni (traditional local), Pingrumba (inspired by East), Bogazici (traditional turkish), Hai nam pho (vietnamese), Catch burger (burger), Bombay (indian), Manouche (lebanese)

If you like wine, let’s find a Bortársaság shop and they help you to make the best choice.

If you spend a week here, you should definitely see:

If you can pick up max 2, if I were you, I will visit Szeged and Balaton (Balatonfüred or Badacsony)
