Not all tourists are the same. Some go to places for a specific reason. A rock concert, a football game or a festival. Some care mostly about shopping and others about exciting nightlife, and others yet just look for peace and quiet in a luxurious resort. There are many online tools to help tourists find out specific information about specific things they want. If you want to find the best pastries in Budapest, you can just google it up. If you want recommendations for hotels or places to go, you can go to TripAdvisor or Lonely Planet, etc. What I felt that was missing, when I started thinking about creating the wanderlust guides, was something that will help orchestrating the wandering, the less planned or targeted part of the trip. This is why they will not give you too specific recommendations. They will tell you where are the must see sites, and in which area you can find a market, or a restaurants district or a park, but they will not tell you in detail what they are like because I know you rather find out yourself. The idea is to describe the overall experience of a trip to a certain place, to map out what is near what, and what choices you have while wandering around. Oh, and BTW, you can buy great Kürtőskalács for real cheap in the Metro stations, or at least so I was told. Unfortunately the Metro pastry shops were closed for a vacation on the week I was in Budapest.
