As the title states I will hopefully be studying abroad in Budapest in the fall; I just submitted my application yesterday. Anyone who has been, lived, traveled there have any input on what I should do/see/not do or see? I did some research obviously but I'm just curious as to things I may have missed or have heard misinformation about. I'll be planning on traveling around to places like Vienna, Krakow, Prague and hopefully a couple others like Croatia or Slovenia while there as well.

I've never been myself, but my creative writing professor lived there for awhile and it sounds incredible. It's on my bucket list for sure.

I've studied abroad twice but on the other side of the continent (France/Spain), so though unfortunately I have not been to those locations you listed I have done a good amount of traveling/studying nearby them. If you have any specific questions let me know!

I grew up living in Europe. (Holland, Ireland, Germany)....

as said before I would just travel as much as possible. Europe is awesome because not only are there trains to get anywhere you could possibly want to go, but most flights cost around $30-$50 round trip. So you can pretty much go anywhere.

Don't be scared to try new things.

I also suggest investing in a good camera. When I was in Japan over the summer, I took amazing photographs with my camera.

Start a blog too... so Family and Friends back home can see what youre up to

Not a bad idea, but I'd be careful. You want to spend as little time as possible on the computer and personally I found it more immersive to put family/friends aside and just showcase your findings when you get home.

I ended up getting extra credit for doing one of these while I was abroad for my course. I maybe spent 15-20 minutes just summarizing my day and cultural experience as the class was called "Intercultural Communications".... I guess it just depends -

Ahh, gotcha that's not bad at all. I just hated to see all these people glued to their computers daily when I was abroad.

Yeah; it wasn't like that at all... that would have been such a waste.

I'll be in Prague or Alicante, Spain in Fall as well! Cheers!

I just need to figure out where to go.....

I studied in Spain during my first trip abroad. I believe Alicante was near Valencia - which IMO was one of the lesser exciting Spanish cities but holy shit Spain is just a swan of a country. Such extraordinary diversity and just tons of things to see and do.
