Yes, I know here I was with all my good intentions and now it´s been almost a month – wait it´s been a month (!) – since I last posted something! Wow! Time flies when you’re having fun!
And that is exactly what I’ve been doing, I’v been working (more than usual) and I had a lot of appointments during the weekends, some which even got me away from home all weekend or I had visitors who slept at my home. And I really couldn’t tell them to just take a seat on the couch and wait while I write a post for my blog. That would have been weird! Although it would have been quite funny to see the reaction to a statement like that!
And lets not forget that my sister got married, usually that takes away a day … maybe a day and half. But in this case it took away almost a week and a half from my usual schedule. On the first Saturday my sister and her husband got married by law here in the Netherlands and the next Saturday they had the church wedding in Hungary. Which was awesome! Both weddings were beautiful and it was really special to see my brother in law’s hometown and family. However since we didn’t just want to fly out to Hungary for the wedding we decided to make a small vacation out of it and it was an awesome vacation. We went to Budapest for the second time and it kind of felt like coming home. It’s a beautiful city and I really felt at home there. I talked about Barcelona a couple of weeks back and that city still is my number one, but Budapest really is a close second. I love old buildings and both in Budapest as well as in Eger they are really working hard to restore the old buildings to their former state.
And I would recommend visiting Budapest to anyone who’ll listen to me and to prove it to you I’ve added some pictures to this post.Long time no posts … Yes, I know here I was with all my good intentions and now it´s been almost a month - wait it´s been a month (!) - since I last posted something!
Today, be inspired by a favorite childhood meal. For the twist, focus on infusing the post with your unique voice — even if that makes you a little nervous.
Write today’s post as if you’re relaying the story to your best friend over a cup of coffee (or glass of wine — your call). Don’t worry if it feels like you ramble a bit, or a four-letter-word sneaks in, or it feels different from what you usually publish. Take a deep breath, tell the story in your own words, and send it out the virtual door.
The Daily Post / Writing 101, Day ten – Writing 101, Day Ten: Happy
When I was little we always used to have spaghetti with tomato sauce and meatballs – usually on Wednesday. I loved it! I don’t know why. It’s not really a special meal and it’s not like I only got it on certain occasions or something like that. But I loved it, to me a week between Spaghetti Wednesdays always felt like it was too long. And it really ruined my day whenever my mom decided that she wanted to make something else on that day!
As much as you can talk about a day being ruined by something like that, but at the time – when I was little – it was as if the world would stop turning as ridiculous as that sounds right now. It strange how a simple meal like that can be so important. But maybe that has something to do with the extremely variety of pasta and pasta recipes there are to choose from.
I love cooking and pasta is still one of my favorites to make. So if anyone has any must try recipes feel free to add a link in the comments. I’m always open to trying new recipes.Writing 101 – Day 10 Today, be inspired by a favorite childhood meal.

Remember in 1993 when Jurassic Park was like…the end all, be all of special effects?
not gonna lie that still looks intimately real
I’m still somewhat convinced that someone sold their soul to create the special effects in Jurassic Park because that shit is over 20 years old and it still really, really holds up, better than the stuff in a lot of current movies, even.
Fucking witchcraft, man.
Honestly, a couple of weeks ago Jurassic Park was on tv and I was still in awe by the effects. Unbelievable!
