It’s been a month since we got back from our first overseas trip as a family. Budapest and Vienna were amazing!!! So spectacular. I fell in love with it as our plane was descending and I could see the Hungarian farmland stretching for miles. I wondered, are any of the things I am seeing the same things my grandmother or grandfather saw at one time in their lives? Could any of these people be extended family or descendants of neighbors that survived the war? My connection to this land was immediate.
I remember my grandmother telling me about the beauty of Budapest. She was spot on. The architecture was unbelievable and the modern mixed with the historic was a visual overload for me.
We are so lucky that we were able to take this trip. If there is any positive to chemo killing my fertility, it’s that we can afford a (inexpensive) plane ride for three.
I was proud to share my heritage with my husband and son and I’m so excited to share my pictures with all of you.
In all, I took about 4000 pictures on our trip. Only a few hours after landing, Oliver exclaimed, “Mom, how many pictures are you going to take?” I know, crazy right? Here are some to start you off.
**Disclaimer: I wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t want to look through all of them. I’m having trouble showing you all my favorites because they are all my favorites!
