Changes

(Listen to the music while reading blog post. Big thanks for this song for Karine Gonçalves.) As a foreigner, it’s not easy to find a home for rent on Madeira island. It took me 5 weeks to get the tiny house where I settled finally. True though, that I’ve got it in a package, along […]

Miss Recluse

(Listen to the music while reading blog post.) I was about to write a post on gadgets and how they steal our present. I already planned what I was going to write about, I was full of indignant anger for the virtual world, the mobile phones and other addictive thingies, and I definitely wanted to […]

Slow motion

(Listen to the music while reading blog post. This time big thanks to Laci Plattner for the music recommendation. Come to Madeira!) Ocean on my left-hand side, mountain on the right-hand side. I’m sitting on a chair warmed up by sunshine, the scent on my clothes is sun-perfume, just like on my hair. There are […]

Don’t stop me now

(Listen to the music while reading blog post. This time Tatiana és Catarina de Lacerda gave me the idea of this song, huge thanks for it!) Madeira. Summertime in winter, colourful flowers everywhere, the sunshine gently warms up your soul, the ocean breeze touches your face. You open yourself up to embrace future experiences and […]

Fishermen of Burma

(Listen to the music while reading blog post.) A couple of years ago in a gallery in London a photo literally took my breath away. On the picture a fisherman of Burma (yes, I know that the country’s official name is Myanmar, calling it Burma is a form of rebellion) was seen. Sunset scene, beautiful […]

(Listen to the music while reading blog post. This time big thanks to Peti Daróczi-Végh for recommending this song. The destination you should visit: Montenegro.)

Desire for real

(Listen to the music while reading blog post.) Black magic and the rain I have an everything but magical relationship with rain. Last year I spent one month on Madeira island, it started raining thirty times a day. Then I spent two months on the Azores that is soooo green because of… yes, the rain. […]

A MONTH OF SILENCE

(Listen to the music while reading blog post. This time this amazing song from the Into the wild soundtrack was Gergő Varenke’s idea, big thanks! The destination I recommend for you in return: the globe. You seem to feel home everywhere on it.) Mind the Map blog is about to go on holiday in July. […]

FRIENDS FROM THE AZORES

(As an exception, this time not only the music is important. When you watch this video, you’ll know why. It’s about the island of Faial and represents perfectly the life there. They are truly idiots, I love this band.) Meeting with the locals. For me the most important factor when I travel to an unknown […]

PORTUGAL, BARBECUE

(Listen to the music while reading blog post. Big thanks for this week’s music recommendation for Judit Neubauer. Your destination is: you don’t need to go anywhere, you’re just at the perfect place.) Eating is one of the best things in life. Furthermore, it’s an excellent excuse for a meet-up with friends. Just think about […]

A PRIVATE FADO EVENING

(Listen to the music while reading blog post.) How often does it happen to you that you call a mechanic to repair your broken water heater and soon you end up watching a private performance in your kitchen? Well, not very often to me either. But it happened now and I’m going to tell you […]
