VisuaLiving > Festetics Castle Wedding

It’s funny, the memories that stick with us. For me, memories from a wedding I attended in Keszthely, Hungary have little to do with the castle it took place in, or the even the bride and groom (dare I say).  What I remember is the flower girl, the flow of her dress, and the light that made her glow like a light bulb as she left the castle to get on with her day . I also remember the man who wore traditional Hungarian boots. It actually wasn’t the man so much. It was more about what he had on his feet.  I thought, “How can I get a pair of those boots to take home with me on the plane?”

This is the only traffic I encountered along the 5 km stretch of forest
that connects Hévíz to Keszthely, Hungary.

Before heading down the pathway, I asked a local woman:

Any wild animals that should concern me?

No, she said, then laughed, and looked at me funny.
