Earlier this summer I went to Lake Balaton in Hungary, to do a travel story from this lovely and beautiful region. The rest of the summer was so busy that first now I have been able to edit and photoshop the pictures I took back then. As I am heading for the Burning Man in Nevada soon now, I thought it would be a good time to post some of the pictures I took around Lake Balaton. From fresh water to dust, so to speak.
Lake Balaton is the biggest lake in Central Europe and because it’s so shallow (only 12 meters at the deepest) the water in the summer time gets really warm. We are talking about temperatures around 30 °C (or around 85 degrees Fahrenheit). Very nice indeed! In addition the lake is full of minerals and supposedly very healthy for body and soul. If that isn’t enough, around the lake there are many thermal springs, so a lot of visitors to the region come for the spa and treatments that goes with it.
As I mentioned I am on my way to Burning Man now, which means I won’t be able to stay much in contact with the blog sphere the next week or so. But I’ll be back hopefully with some fun pictures from this special event.
