Budapest captured my heart. I don't know if it was the rich history, incredible architecture, vibrant (but not overwhelming) night life, the breathtaking way the city lights up when the sun goes down, or perhaps just having two amazing Couchsurfing hosts who made me feel welcomed and shared their own love of the city with me, but something just drew me to the city in a magical way.
Music is a magical thing. It has the power to make you feel something deeper and bigger than yourself. As someone who struggles with mental illnesses, that power can be transformational. It can make you feel happy, it can help you get out a good cry when you need to, it can connect you with memories or dreams or hopes, it can ground you in the present. It’s potential is unlimited.
