Thanks so much YK! If you're interested, here's the blog I'll be keeping: You've been everywhere already, it seems, but perhaps I can shed light on something for you in one of the many places I'm going. Again, thanks so much for this trip report!

Bookmarking - just starting to research Budapest. It looks very thorough - can't wait to start researching!

yk, I hear there is no snow on the ground in Boston area. For three weeks there at Christmas we missed some bad weather elsewhere in the country. Ever seen the ice sculptures on the Commons?

Regarding art nouveau. Next time you are in nancy , make sure to get a local art nouveu walking tour map.there are neighborhoods that are laden with art neuveau buildings, including many residential blocs onthe wes side.
Also add to you AN destination, darmstadt Germany. The Matildenhohe artists quater is completely restored and an art neuveau masterpiece. In the early twetneith century the Grand Duke of Darmstadt Hesse invited architects and artists of the art neuveau era to move to the matildenhohe. The centerpeiece of this beautiful ensemble is the Hochzeitturm or the Wedding Tower. W visted Darmstadt and nacy on the same trip -two very different interpretations of art neuveau.

Also dont forget ot do some exploring if you visit Pittsburgh.There are several excellent art neuveau residential complexes to the East of the University area. The old Hiedelberg apartments would fit right on the Matildenhohe. The Highland Terrace apartments would fit right into Vienna.

Reading through this fantastic report... Parts of it will be going with me this weekend!

The town in New Zealand which is Art Deco is Napier - North Island. I visited there in 2005.
