Timeline: 24h romance in Budapest

November 16, 2016

-18 degrees FREEZING in Budapest and its my last night there. I’m alone in a lovely apartment rented for my final days.budapest

Idle, I browse online.. me and L match on tinder and we arrange a time to meet. I love when things happen so swiftly.

9:30pm
We meet outside my apartment and L navigates us to a bar

9:45pm
The first few conversations were awkward! L’s hard to crack but we got chatting. No matter who.. people love talking about themselves.

11pm
The reason I invited L back to my house is because it was getting late, I had wine and it was too dam cold to stay away from the warmth.

11-3am
Talking and drinking wine

3am
The clocks been ticking and now L’s definitely missed her train. Staying is definately the polite thing to do

3:15am
Laying in bed, kinda close talking about films (L’s a film student)

Until 8am morning
As L was talking L starts to touch my arms gently. It was just a matter of minutes or was it seconds until the kiss. What a moment.. I haven’t been kissed like that in a long time. Passionate, the kiss was like sex. I haven’t been kissed like that in a long time.

Sex… yes, it was bound to happen. This was the best sex I’d had for a while.

10am
Sex in the shower

3pm next day – I fly back to London

I’m comfortable with it being a one night romance.

    this reminds me of the movie before sunrise, where two ppl met on a train and fell in love walking around vienna. and good for you for being comfortable with a short romanace. time really is a man made thing, in the usa the govt alters time twice a year. ive had multiple experiences where the connection was so deep, time seemed to slow down.
    i usually dont leave comments, but i like your blog and i support you sharing your experiences. im a solo black female queer vegan traveler so its nice to read stories i can relate to as this is a very particular persepctive of travel.
