Love and war

"The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world, and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon"

sunny 20 °C

Perhaps I have been travelling for almost a month and have been cut off from the real world (no work, no news, only sightseeing)... I realize that everything I feel and think inside my mind has been amplified, it's like walking on the street in an invisible cape which no one could see me, but the acoustics bounce back and forth inside myself so intensely, whenever I see an art, or a sunset, or even a doggie on the street, my feelings go through my whole body. So weird. May be that's the thing about travelling.


I was all after the Before Sunrise romance in Vienna. So naturally everything I saw there was just ROMANTIC! But then when I saw The Kiss in person, I was mesmerized... Stillness filled me for a long while. I couldn't help but wonder, how would one feel to be obsessed by a man, it must be overwhelming. I would love to feel it ❤❤❤(and I have to agree The Kiss is so much better than Mona Lisa)

And then I went to the Prater, where Julie and Jesse kissed the first time in Before Sunrise


I magically felt love is all around me, even the sky loves me.... Yeh I am that silly now. Already was a hopeless romantic, now I'm worse, I guess no one could handle me :)

But then of course in this mode of amplified feelings, I was also more depressed than I would have wanted after I went to House of Terror museum in Budapest. It is a place that exhibits the sad history of Hungarians under the dictatorship of Nazis and Soviet Union. I refused to go at first because I didn't want to see horrid on my trip but everyone I've met recommended it so ok I decided to go. CHILLING!


That's some serious shit... Torture chambers, brainwashing propaganda, concentration camp, I actually went into the actual prison cells in the building. Really gave me a heart attack. But after all, I'm glad I went there, it made me treasure life more, perhaps next time I feel life is hard I should think about what these people had been through and I should be grateful of just having a home to myself, a bowl of hot rice for dinner and not forced to worship some stupid leaders or something.

Apart from that, Budapest is awesome. Everyone says the city is so photogenic in every angle and honestly expectation fails me the first day I arrived. But then in the evening...perspective changed and I could really appreciate the beauty of this city. It is just so so bloody wonderful. Love it.

In a few days I'm gonna meet up Miss Noisy and we will rock Germany~~~ yeah! Can't wait!!!!
