Hi! I’m Aniko from Budapest,Hungary. Everybody just calls me Annie,its easier to pronounce. I worked as a licensed tour guide for more than 12 years, working mainly in Hungary, Greece, and Thailand. I enjoy discovering countries (as a tourist), like Australia, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Panama, Mexico, the USA, and many more. I am a real foodie, so I spend quite a lot of time in the kitchen, preparing (mainly) sweets. Yes, I am always on diet! My son just finished at Cambridge University, so I am the proudest mom on the planet, of course. Budapest is fooody and I truly enjoy showing it to friends and tourists!
