Meet the Author

Robert Smyth is a Budapest-based travel/wine writer who hails from the faded seaside resort of New Brighton, directly across the River Mersey from Liverpool, England. He has been living in Budapest for almost 18 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 U.K., 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.com; he also writes articles on wine tasting. He also still sometimes puts his qualifications to use in covering Hungary’s hairaising economic woes.
