Transport

Hitchhiking works generally fine even if quite often people tend not to speak much english resulting in several communication barriers.

Accommodation

Generally good hospitality exchange networks. In main touristic cities (like Budapest) you can also find quite cheap hostels for the equivalent of 5-10€. Malls are a good option to sleep if you find a good spot to hide and sleep.

Food

Generally quite cheap if avoided touristy circuit. As most of European countries good possibilities for dumpster diving, asking and other method to get free food.

Connectivity

Usually good availability of both wifi and internet cafes.

Busking

Hungarian forint is really not a good currency for busking. Even though people seem appreciate and pay street art, the biggest coin is worth around o.3€ (100forint) while get a banknote is much harder than in neighbouring countries (like Serbia, Ukraine or Romania) where it is normal and common.

Visa

Schengen area.
