About Me

My photo
Here I would love to share with you our travels and adventures as international mushroom consultants. About living in Italy, the Veneto area near Venice; in Indonesia, central Java. Why we love the southeast of the United States and moved back from Italy. Our love for gardening, the botanical way. Sharing with you our manifold treasures from exotic places and even offering several at Spectrenoir: http://ebay.to/2xI69uc, for others to enjoy. As well as high end silver items from Giovanni Raspini, Italy. I also do classes and consulting... too much to list here! Love to bring back some romance and quality to the daily life of others...

Driving to Communist Hungary with Husband Pieter Part I - Mayerling

With only 17 days in-between the MGA Conference in Manchester, England, we again departed from Atlanta, USA for Europe on Wednesday, October 17 of 1984.
This time we both would be driving all the way from The Netherlands to Budapest in Hungary for attending yet another Mushroom Conference.
We started out in our Talbot rental car from Timmermans in Horst, The Netherlands and drove by turn.
First day we made it till Mayerling in Austria in 1,100 km or 683 mi.
After a very good night at Hotel Helenenstüberl, we of course had to visit in the morning the hunting lodge where Crown Prince Rudolf killed his mistress and then himself... See full Youtube movie in two parts below post.
The above post card's lower left corner shows the original 1889 Imperial Hunting Lodge.
That's me pointing to the house number 3 on the wall with Mayerling on it as well.
Feeling so happy for having been at the place from a historical movie I watched...
Though not happy because of the tragedy that took place here!
I'm standing somewhere to the right on this building, you can still see the carved statue above the door.
 It looks like some changes have taken place in over 34 years!
Click here to see this photo on my Pinterest.
What I have gathered is, that at present the Sisters Carmelites live in Mayerling click link.
It is only 5 minutes away from the Cistercian Abbey Stift Heiligenkreuz which dates from 1133 and is located in the Vienna Woods.
We need to go back for a longer time to enjoy all the above!

*
We went on our way after visiting Mayerling, as we had to cover still quite a stretch and not all was Interstate at the time during Communism in Hungary!
No problems at the border and we continued via then Interstate E5 via Magyaróvár to Budapest.
Now Magyaróvár and Moson have been merged and it is called Mosonmagyaróvár.
We enjoyed seeing the impressively large agricultural areas but not so much the poor villages.
We stopped alongside the road to buy grapes, pears and in a village we changed money and bought quark, yogurt and pure fruit juice.
We arrived in time in Budapest around 14:30 at the Congress Centre having done now a total of 1,500 km or 932 mi.
Pieter's Campbell Soup colleagues from the USA had arrived by plane and Long Chi Wu is standing next to me and Pieter on the right (for the viewer), Colleague Frank Gabel made this photo.

Stay tuned...

  1. I would very much like to be at that same historical building. The tragedy is sad, but being there would have been riveting to me. I did have a chance to do quite a bit of travel but never to that Country. It was not permitted when I was abroad.

    1. Dearest Katie Isabella,
      Yes, being in the town and reading about it at our hotel, we just had to go there and see it!
      Both of us love history, however sad at times.
      Maybe you get to travel a little bit along with us this way...
      Hugs,

  3. Hello Mariette, Despite the risks, you and Pieter were lucky to see such an historical country at a time when it was basically denied to most of the world. Part of my family is from that area, so that is the style of cooking I grew up with.

    1. Dearest Jim,
      Yes, we have been very lucky indeed. It also did enrich us for seeing the struggle for life by people who knew absolutely no freedom. Their homes and possessions could be confiscated any time... They literally were shut off from the rest of the world and one can only admire them for making do with the local produce and things they grew or made! It sure made us appreciative of what we got.
      As for the culture, guess we both have it in our blood as we love the music and sure also the food!
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  7. Dear Mariette - memories from that period in time are so important both historically and for people to remember just how difficult it was for those living behind the Iron Curtain. Anyone visiting today would not realise exactly how it was in Communist countries then.
    We also visited several different Communist countries during that period - Bulgaria, Russia, Yugoslavia and Romania. It was very hard to see the struggle that people had to contend with. I was interested to note that you bought yourself some yogurt - when we were in Bulgaria it was the first time that I had ever tasted it. Strange as it may seem today, but yogurt was only available here in specialists shops.
    Pieter must be really happy to read all of these memories that you are busily documenting for him.

    1. Dearest Rosemary,
      It is indeed an important historical story that needs to be preserved for future generations to read.
      Oh the yogurt we bought was very good but coming from a dairy rich country like The Netherlands, we were very much used to it. Not so much in Georgia/USA, aside from the very sweet versions with fruit taste.
      Yes, so far Pieter has enjoyed reading these posts very much and also the comments left!
      Hugs,
      Mariette
