I spent the summer vacation in my homeland, Hungary - as usual - and I got some great memories again. I made some pictures, not as many as I could but most of the time I was busy with relaxing and just enjoing the company of my family and friends. And of course the great weather, the beautiful landscape, the architecture and the awesome wine Hungary has to offer.
We spent most of the time at the lake Balaton, a fantastic touristic area with all the goodies one want to have to relax.
My "home town" at the Balaton is Balatonalmádi, a very quiet little town perfect for families with little kids. And for artists too, the town has a very busy group of artists, who meet regularly to brainstorm, change business ideas, organizing expositions and to have fun.
Every year there is a wine festival, what is really great to try the wines of the region and to meet friends. This year we fall in love with the wines of the Feind Winary (be a little careful with their website, it's really great and you can see some cool little movies, but it's a little too noisy). We really liked their Kékfrankos Premium '06 (Blaufränkisch) and their award winning Cabernet Franc '06 is also fantastic.
We also visited the town I grew up, Székesfehérvár, a city with massive history, but it was so hot that day that we really couldn't do much than sitting on a terrace in the shadow drinking ice cold lemonade :)
Ah, and almost forgot: I was at the concert of A-ha! :) In the first row! It was just AWESOME!!
I took some pictures too, you can find them here, just click on the photo belove:
