Favourites of February 2018

Book experience of the month:
This month I read Short stories: The happy prince by Oscar Wilde. The book teaches a lot about the true kind of human nature and every story holds a moral lesson.
Then I read Klimt: Women, that is a short book about the muses of the painter Gustav Klimt and women’s situation in the 19th and 20th century. I got this one from my mummy when she went to see The Kiss last year in Belvedere, Vienna.

Audiobook experience of the month:
Of course I followed Harry’s adventures and fights with Dolores Umbridge in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. It starts to make me feel sad that his adventures will be over in two books…again.

Movie experience of the month:
First I saw a very unusual family story of Winnie, the pooh’s writer, A. A. Milne, called Goodbye, Christopher Robin. I finally got to see The murder on the Orient Express! It was very monumental. I also saw a Hungarian movie, 1945. It’s about a small town, where one day two Jewish people turn up after the war. People have to face their guilt and re-evaluate their old decisions. Then I watched Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, which is about the psychologist who wrote the comic in the 1940s. It was very interesting to see Ryan Gosling in a sci-fi movie. Although Blade runner 2049 may seem slow, it really gives you a special feeling. But altogether my most favourite movie this month was Lion! Dev Patel, Rooney Mara and Nicole Kidman play the main characters of this emotional journey.

Cinema experience of the month:
Yesterday I went to see the new Marvel movie, Black Panther, introducing Wakanda’s king, TChalla played by Chadwick Boseman and his love, Nakia by the Academy Award winner, Lupita Nyong’o.

Series experience of the month:
I want to catch up with the 4th season of Gotham, so that is all. Seems like Big Bang Theory and Vikings went on a holiday. 

Travelling experience of the month:
I went to Budapest twice this month to visit friends! I always find new things to discover there.

Photography experience of the month:
The ones I took on my trips and some shots of my friend at Buda Castle. Can’t wait to start taking portrait pictures more intensely.

My travelling year of 2017

2017 has been amazing! I’ve been to 6 countries (counting my own, Hungary as well). Pictures speak more easily than words, so without further ado, here are my journeis of the last year:

In my town, Szeged, I went to the Lavender Days, the Zoo and the Salvador Dalí exhibition:

I went to see Nandafalva hindu temple in Balástya:

I’ve been to Siófok (Lake Balaton) twice, for a one-day trip and for a long spa weekend. On the way I also saw Simontornya and Ozora Castles.

I went to Balatonfüred for a conference and took a boat trip to the other side of Lake Balaton to visit Tihany:

I saw Hungary’s second biggest town, Debrecen for the first time:

I took a one-day trip to the Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia. Can’t wait to go back to the most beautiful natural sight I have ever seen.

6 days is not enough for Slovenia, but it is a great start. Maribor, Ptuj, Postojna, Predjama, Piran and Portoroz, it was nice to see all of you!

I faced my fear and took the very first plane ride of my life to Barcelona and saw my favourite architectural wonder, Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia:

And of course no year can pass by without me visiting as many Christmas fairs as I can. Here is Szeged…

… Budapest…

… Kecskemét…

… Bratislava…

… and Castle Hof in Austria:

I don’t know what 2018 holds for me, but I’m ready for all the new adventures to come!

I had a pet for 15 minutes…

It all started with a huge storm… and ended in great sadness…

Let’s start from the beginning!

This summer, there are really vicious storms sometimes in Hungary. Last night one of them hit my town, but it was over till 3 a.m.

Today I found a cute little turtle in our garden. He seemed very shy and his shell was really dry. Memories came to my mind, because the only pet I ever owned was actually a turtle, and it felt like having a new one in our family!

Approximately 15 minutes later, it turned out that he belonged to our neighbour… 😦 So one of my eyes laughs, because he found his home, but the other one is sad, because I really wanted to keep him.

What I’ve been doing the past 2 weeks?

I know I haven’t been very active lately, but believe me, I have a good reason for it.

This week, I finished medical school, and after 6 years, I became a doctor. I don’t really have the words to describe how I feel, but this photo captures it perfectly.

This was the greatest challenge of my life so far, and I’m curious about what comes next.

P.S.: The photo was taken in the Botanical Garden in Szeged.
