About the author (2009)

Robert Smyth is a Budapest-based British journalist who hails from the River Mersey directly across from Liverpool. He has been living in Budapest for around 15 years during which time he’s seen certain aspects of the city change beyond recognition, but can still find enough old world and quirky charm to keep him there. He holds a degree in Economics from the UK, which he followed up with an MBA at Budapest’s former Karl Marx University only to find that writing holds more appeal than the world of business. He has written print and online guides respectively for the Blue Guides and Whatsonwhen; he also writes columns on wine tasting for the local Englishlanguage press and is Business New Europe’s correspondent for Hungary. When not writing about traveling or wine, he likes to travel and taste wine.
