    Sad times.
    Yes, why aren't you? It'll be loads of fun!

    I think it's kinda dangerous if you want to travel to an event just to see one specific skater. Will the whole thing be ruined for you if the skater withdraws?

    Sigh I reeeeeally want to. Live Euros + Budapest + meeting FSUers for the first time + (Hungarian men) = deliciousness, but it's the £££. That 'ole chestnut. I have a big move planned for next summer, and as I can only work part-time at present, I have to depressingly watch every single penny (still, it'll be worth it )

    Oh I'd want to watch and support them all. There are so many I'd love to see live (S/S, Korpi, Sot, Tuk, V/T, P/B) but I'd just enjoy the whole thing and take in the atmosphere. There's nothing quite like sporting events in person IMO. I'm going to see if there's a way I can make it

    Oh I wasn't referring to you (Eladola mentioned hoping mostly to see Plushenko), I know you support them all.

    Fingers crossed then! Also if it helps at all, I've been checking out accommodation etc. in Budapest and it's CHEAP (dirt cheap compared to e.g. Paris and going to TEB).

    I'm hoping the all-event tickets will also be very much affordable.

    ^I've just been looking on HostelWorld, and yes, it's VERY affordable.

    Hmm...

    Very true, I was checking the prices and a week there costs half of four days in Paris!

    and yes, the hungarian is a very weird language..this was the Hungarian song at the Eurovison Song Contest 2013 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJwk8E0XUo0 it's not a very good song, but the singer sang in Hungarian and many people like it, and voted for it because of the language.

    I didn't bother to read the tread until now because I didn't plan to attend Euros, and now, I'm clearing my schedule to go!
    I'll wait until we know the price for the all-events tickets, but Budapest seems an affordable city compare to Paris

    Even though it is off topic: The hungarian eurovision song was the best in years, even I voted for it (your link does not work with me though). I guess tastes differ, but it definetly was no cheap dance thing solely composed for points, it had heart. And I like indie boys...

    I also like the song, I just wanted to say, the song isn't a tipical song for the Eurovision. Simple, sweet song in Hungarian language, I think this is the song's magic.

    ^I did like that song. And even though I usually have allergic reactions to guys in those glasses, a slouched beanie and a leather jacket, I could just about stomach it.

    The same here. I thought it was the best song this year.

    I'm seriously considering going.. I met so many nice people when I was volunteering at Worlds last year and previous Grand Prix events in North America.. anybody else from Canada considering going the flights and hotel from Toronto are really good - you can do the full week for less than $1500..

    Mind if I join the fun/help?

    I'm trying to get myself free at work for Euros, so hopefully I'll be able to attend.

Generally public transport is pretty good in Budapest, and there's also a quite decent night service, especially in the center. (Although like someone else said, make sure you have a ticket, because the inspectors have a thing for fining foreign tourists who don't have one, but you won't be able to get on a metro without one anyway, since these days they check tickets at the enterance. Tickets are not too expensive btw. Website of the Budapest public transport company is: http://www.bkv.hu/)
    That is true. There is a funny saying here: Try looking bored and/or depressed as usual Hungarians do, because once ticket inspectors find out you're a tourist, you're gonna have a bad time. They think tourists are walking purses.

    On youtube, I've found another video from a foreigner guy looking at the things he loved and hated while in Budapest. It's worth watching.
