I'm feeling a bit frustrated because I've been spending more than a week online trying to find a restaurant in Budapest which will be open on Christmas Eve.
We'd planned a trip to Budapest, Hungary but we couldn't imagine everything would be closed for the Christmas period. I didn't think Hungary was a catholic country. Hell, even in Spain and Italy you'd find restaurants open for business on these days - also in our own country.
So we still don't know if we are going to continue with this trip. Most of the businesses, museums etc. will be closed as well. We can cancel the hotel without penalty. We'd only lose the airplane tickets, but these were cheap, so not so important (and you are paid back the taxes - found this out some time ago when we had to cancel another trip).
2016 has been a year in which many things didn't go as planned. The terrorist attacks on Brussels airport, a concert that was cancelled, the fire at the Paris theater Mogador.... Hopefully 2017 will be less eventful!
