As you guys know, I love making unique, customized handwriting fonts — for free!!! I love seeing my fonts in use. Today I found them all the way in Budapest Hungary!!!
OMG. You guys. You will NEVER guess what happened to me in Budapest!!! We were walking down a pedestrian street near our hotel — actually one of the most beautiful pedestrian shopping streets in the world — ranked 7th out of 16 among shopping streets in Paris, Milan, and Amsterdam.
It’s renowned for it’s atmosphere and attractiveness, and is one of the most popular things to do in Budapest. It was right by our Budapest hotel, so we walked down this street multiple times a day.

I looked up at one of the many colorful outdoor cafe awnings lining the street, when to my complete shock I saw MY HANDWRITING. Like, my ACTUAL HANDWRITING on a restaurant awning in Budapest!!! How totally amazing is that??!
They had it on banners and signs all over the restaurant…

They even had a flat screen TV where the logo would occasionally pop up with my handwriting. See “The Italian Kitchen in Budapest”??! That’s my handwriting! You can download it for free here.
Earlier this year I took a “What Font Are You?” quiz on Buzzfeed and also got MY handwriting. So crazy!! I feel like I’m in an episode of The Twilight Zone!!
Then later at an outdoor market, I found magnets with another one of my free fonts! That funky font that says “Budapest” is another font I made, Rebekah’s Birthday. So fun! I love seeing my fonts pop up all over the world! :)

Few years ago I was addicted to yout website/blog :) As the time passed I realized that how much I missed your blog and i started to read your posts again. You can’t imagine how happy I was when I saw that you were in Budapest…because I live in Hungary :) The pictures you have made are so stunning that they made me feel that actually i live in a nice country. I really hope that one day you will visit Budapest again.
Ps. Don’t be surprised that your fonts are international…because they are incredible. To be honest I downloaded all of them. If I were you I would make a copyright to all of them or sell them to Google to earn money and I think the whole world would know your name sooner or later ;)
I love Budapest, your pictures are making me want to go back for a summer visit (we stayed there for 6 weeks when we were adopting our son exactly 7 years ago…in winter though, when everything fun shut down and it was COLD!). Another place worth visiting was the terror museum which chronicles both Nazi and Soviet occupations. Very sobering, but gives great perspective on all that Hungary has had to endure. It’s a beautiful culture. :)
How awesome to see your font not only once, but twice!! :) Love it!! And your pics are gorgeous, as usual! Now I’m off to take that fun font quiz!!
I loved this post. Your pictures are beautiful as usual. And I loved the gorgeous wall and download. Thank you!
Oh my gosh what a small world! How cool is that??? And now I need to go find what font I am, because I am so addicted to fonts, it’s not even funny.
How awesome! Those Hungarians know a good thing when they see it (your handwriting).
Wow – it is a small world after all! I love seeing your pictures!
So fun that you saw your handwriting in Budapest!! Amazing photos, Amanda. I always enjoy your posts!
I am writing Budapest in my to visit places list and how cool is your handwriting girl!! Glad you guys had a great time!
Too fun!! I just took the font quiz and while I didn’t end up with your handwriting, it’s definitely another one of your fonts.
Omg! That’s so cool! I feel like that’s happened to you a few times now (“finding” one of your fonts somewhere.) Didn’t you spot another one on a mug somewhere once?
That’s really awesome!!
Amazing sights! I wish My mother-in-law were still alive to tell me where she worked in Budapest before she imigrated through Ellis Is. when she was 21 back in 1929. She was born in Papa, Hungary.
Oh my gosh hahaha how awesome is that to find your handwriting there! !
I totally forgot about seeing your font. That was SO cool!
The photos from the top of St. Stephens are amazing!! That last trip up was totally worth it.
That is so COOL! the font looks amazing in those banners, how exciting!
WOW! That is incredible!! HOW exciting!! I would have been freaking out!!! :) congrats, congrats!
I live in USA but I am originally from Slovakia very close to Budapest. I am so happy for you that people all over the world are using your fonts. I am graphic designer and have used your handwritten collection already at least on 5 projects. Keep up the good work and give us more handwritten fonts. If I may request sometime I am missing handwritten font which is slanted to the right….it is more “EURO ” : )
That is incredible that you found your font in so many different places! How surreal!?
I love your posts. The photos are suburb. I think we whould have tagged after you as you saw some wonderful places that we missed. It was great getting to meet you and now seeing your fun, fun blog.
Your photos are amazing. I have never had a desire to visit Budapest but now I really want to go!
That is incredibly amazing finding your own handwriting around town!! Coolest thing ever!
How surreal is that?! That’s amazing. Did you recognize it right away or did you do a double take? ;)
