“Slow Living Hungary” is a non-governmental organization with the fundamental mission to strengthen and spread the value-based way of thinking in the pulsating everyday life of modern people. It is focusing on four main areas: Slow Travel, Slow Art and Culture, Slow Food Movement and Farm & Urban Life. When the invitation arrived, through my friend Silia, to attend one of their events, I was absolutely thrilled as I am a fond and true believer in the value of having a slower life in all aspects.
So, on the 16th of January 2019 we attended a remarkable event, organized by Comepass Events and hosted by His Excellency Dr. Andor Nagy at the Hungarian embassy in Vienna. The event was attended by approximately 60 guests and included an array of highlights, from the temporary exhibition opening of contemporary artist Krüzsely Gábor to a Slow Wines presentation and tasting; an exceptional Slow Food Dinner, and presentations held by a "blue dye" artisan (he generously offered the individual table linens to each guest) and Graefl Manor's manager (a dream estate located 130km east of Budapest).
I am happy to share with you a few impressions:
