The lake of Velence / Hungary - storm incoming
According to some sources, the lake once named Fertő (sink, marsh) owes its current name to Italians settling in the town now called Velence (Venice). The lake water is rich in mineral components and is thus refreshing and regenerating for the tired body.

Getaway as Flights Are Now So Possibly Cheap

Expats or tourists can enjoy cheap airfares from Travelgrove to stay in touch with friends or relatives living overseas. In itself Hungary is a place that is cheap to visit. Some accommodations are less than 40 Euros and this means a good quality facility. The purchasing power of the locals may not be as high as the western european cities, hence much of the cost savings can be turned in for having fun, tickets to museums, entrances to thermal baths and so on. 

Considering to meet your friends or close relative living in the US, a good solution is cheap flights to Houston. Imagine flying to meet them over weekends as a short visit. You can even arrange to meet them on a regular basis with the cost savings from these Travelgrove cheaper airfares which are on offer.

If you are opportunistic enough, you will realize that when one of the Hungarian public holidays fall on a Friday, it can give you more time to maximize the savings yield. Families gain more opportunities to see each other for a longer weekend, just by making use of such cheap airfares. 

Rome, travelgrove.com

When we planned our visit to meet Erika and Marco, we made good use of the cheap flights to Rome. It takes about 1 hour 40 mins from Budapest to Rome. Cheap flights by Travelgrove also make Rome very affordable to visit as compare to the towns and villages within the same country.

Rome is a place which celebrates the glories of Ancient Rome. Most likely if you like Budapest, you will find the Ancient Rome's huge amphitheater, the Colosseum of Rome, very fascinating. Others which you must see is The Pantheon, Roman Forum and The Capitoline Hill. I remembered the Piazza Navona, the Palatine Hill and the Baths of Diocletian which was so huge as once it covers 32 acres!

Besides the Trajan's market, the world's oldest shopping mall, you must see the monumental ruins of the Baths of Caracalla (2nd to 6th century AD). The Via Appia and Catacombs and Ostia Antica (ancient Rome port ruins) are not to be missed too.
