What do you do and why do you do it?

I am a volunteer at a civic organization, which aims to help restaurants/bars to go greener and get a Sustainable Certificate. They promote healthy eating and try to raise awareness about the fact that what we put on our table, has a huge effect on the environment. This issue is very important to me and I am finally doing something that I love.

What are the best TV shows of all time?

Friends.

Name some spots in Budapest that are good for a Tinder date.

Apropó for wine, Zoska for breakfast.

Where do you buy those fabulous clothes of yours?

I try to avoid fast fashion stores, but I am on a quite low budget, so I usually shop at second hand stores, like Humana Vintage Boutique. They have great sales.

What’s the area/ spot in town you’ll never be caught dead in?

Crowded, touristy ruin bars.

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in your city that you never get to do?

The baths. Tourists really love them and I always swear to visit at least one, but it just never happens.

Where can you get the best cocktail in Budapest? Which one do you like?

I've had the best cocktail at Babka and it was an Aperol Spritz with grapefruit and rhubarb.

What’s the one place you think is overrated in Budapest?

DiVino wine bars.

What are the Budapest spots a first-time visitor can’t miss?

Margaret Island and the Castle district.

What’s your favorite vacation city in the world and why?

Island of Sao Miguel. It is one of the Azores Islands, in the middle of the ocean, near Portugal. Very few tourist go there, it is kind of a hidden gem, but it has everything. You can find beaches, lovely gardens, hills, lakes, hot springs and people are super nice.
