• LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL

    Hol volt, hol nem volt

    …. volt egyszer egy titkos erdő. Léte annyira titok volt, hogy még a madár se járt arra. Tavaly novemberben fedeztem fel, amikor az őszi napsugár csábítóan sétára hívott.

    Once upon a time, there was a secret forest. Its existence was such a big secret that even birds seldom flew over there. I discovered it last November when the lovely autumn sunshine invited me for a walk.

    Először azt hittem, lakatlan ez az erdő, de a fák között sétálva egyszer csak megzörrent mögöttem a bokor. Odafordulva, nem jött, hogy higgyjek a szememnek: egy apró róka motoszkált az ágak között.

    At first, I thought that the forest is uninhabited, but as I walked by the trees, suddenly I heard some noise coming from the bushes behind me. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I turned around: there was a tiny Little Fox standing behind a tree.

    Szelíd kisrókával hozott össze a sors, nem kellett sokat várnom, sikerült Őt kicsalogatnom az erdőn átvezető ösvényre.

    I could easily lure the tame Little Fox to the path leading through the woods.

    – Hát te, kisróka? Mondd, merre laksz? – kérdeztem kíváncsian.
    – Látod azt a hatalmas fát? Arra van a vackom! – mutatott a kisróka.

    – Hello, Little Fox! Tell me, where is your nest, where do you live? – I asked curiously.
    – See that big tree? Over there! – showed the Little Fox.

    – S mégis, mit csinálsz itt, egyedül ebben a hatalmas erdőben? Nem vagy magányos? – folytattam a kérdezősködést.
    – Szép itt az erdőben, de igazad van…. néha picit magányos vagyok – felelte a kisróka.

    – Tell me, aren’t you lonely all on your own in this big forest? – I asked.
    – I love living in the forest, but you’re right…. I feel lonely sometimes – replied the Little Fox.

    – Nézd, milyen szépen hullanak az őszi falevelek! – sóhajtott a kisróka. És valóban, igaza volt, ennél szebb, varázslatosabb levélhullást még sosem láttam.

    – Look, how beautifully the leaves are falling! How full of light and color are their last days – sighed the Little Fox. Oh how right he was, I haven’t seen a more beautiful autumn scene in my entire life.

    Akkor már tudtam, hogy nem hagyhatom ott a kisrókát egyedül, hanem hazavittem magammal és azóta elválaszthatatlan barátok vagyunk!

    I knew straight away that I can’t leave the Little Fox all by himself, so I took him home with me and we became best friends forever!

    Itt a vége, fuss el véle! 🙂

  • MY TRAVELS

    Ballycross Apple Farm revisited

    Last year we had the pleasure to visit Ballycross Apple Farm in County Wexford for the first time. I loved its Halloween mood and as we didn’t explore to whole farm, we decided to go back this year again. We got lucky with the weather, it was fairly warm and although there was no good light for photography, at least it wasn’t raining ;). We were once again greeted by the farm animals – ducks, goats, pigs, horses, rabbits – and loads of pumpkins which set the whole Halloween mood of the place.





    Below you can see Paddy, the main horse enjoying his break between cart rides around the farm. This time we took our own Radio Flyer Wagon with us and had a lot of fun. It came very handy especially when we decided to leave the stone courtyard.



    As there were still few places to discover, we bought our tickets to the pumpkin patch and the apple orchards. The yellow trail leads through an enchanted forrest to a photographer’s dream: a seemingly endless pumpkin patch :). I loved every second of this trip, but this was my favorite part by far, a dream come true. I felt like a child again….







    I gave Little One a proper ride through the pumpkin patch too and afterwards we headed towards the apple orchards and the farm again. As treasures from the trip, we took home several types of pumpkins and a huge bag of Elstar apples that have been almost completely devoured by yours truly.





    Happy Autumn everyone 🙂
