The Family had a fairly good trip to Budapest. I'll hold off on calling it a vacation because there was really no relaxing.. 95% our time was spent going between family members houses, depending where we were staying.
Even when we went out to Lake Velence you still have to deal with worrying about people stealing shit or where Sam was running off to, or holding a conversation with your wifes cousin.
And it was so fucking hot the whole time. and no one has a god damn fan blowing, anywhere. I think electricity is really damn expensive or something.
Anyway, Ill stretch this out into a few posts to capture parts of it. I did manage to keep a handwritten day by day journal upto date. That works out well and is something I have done in the past. Not only do i keep a written log of the day but I keep tickets, receipts and other small papers in with it as mementos.
In the picture above is the Kiss (pronounced Ki-sch) residence, Wifes grandparents. Their property (~45 ft x 250ft). called in the family 'The Garden' has everything. Very self sufficient. Cherries, loads of grapes, apples, apples, peaches, cabbage, raspberries, strawberries, tomatoes, garlic, onion, peppers, squash, kohlrabi, chickens, aloe, beans, and tons more. It is jam packed with every bit of land growing something. It the shit were to hit the fan, this is where you'd want to be, or at least have something equal. The cellar under the house is a cold cellar. Down here the wine and palinka is made and stored and the apples from last season were still perfect.
And since you can access the wine right from the barrel in the cellar you might was well have some, even if it is only 8am.
