My friends who know me very well know that I'm not traveling for fun. My main goal is to know myself, humans and countries. Because of this sometimes some people may think that I'm too friendly. Maybe you know that I'm reluctant to sit far from the window on the plane, At the time of booking the seat, I could not find any empty seat near the window. Anyway I saw a lady sitting beside me, and a girl on my left side by the window. I asked the girl to change her seat with me, but she preferred to sit next to the window. But after I was silent and listened to this lady (next to me), I found out that her eyes are a beautiful window to the world that could be stared at and listened to.
Fortunately my first new friend on my new trip was this lovely lady. Liza has an interesting and perhaps strange life story. Maybe it's sad or maybe happy, but in any case, this photo was taken at the time of Liza's happiness.
Liza is a lovely Australian-Hungarian woman, She had a flight from Australia to Qatar, and then to Hungary. In this photo we are both going to Hungary for the first time. Maybe it's a bit strange why Liza though her father is Hungarian is traveling to Hungary for the first time. Not just for her father, but her family.
I asked the story:
Her father emigrated to Australia in the 1956 revolution, where he fell in love and married. And then Liza was born and then even now she owns a family.
The Hungarian Revolution of 1956 was a nationwide revolt against the government of the Hungarian People's Republic and its Soviet-imposed policies, lasting from 23 October until 10 November 1956. Though leaderless when it first began, it was the first major threat to Soviet control since the USSR's forces drove Nazi Germany from its territory at the end of World War II. (You can read this on Wikipedia for more information.)
Liza had not seen her father's family since then, and she was very excited to see her cousins after this long-lasting friendship in virtual networks.
We are a leaf in the air which can change its fate with every wind. All wars around the world has changed the lives of so many people and they are still going on. Separation from the father's family, separation from the fatherland, Separation from a part of your soul, And many other things that I don't know had written the fate of Liza. I'm sure that the fate of many other people like Liza has changed because of the wars.
Liza has read many books, has watched many films and is very literate. She is so kind, I can say that I was so lucky that I could sit next to Liza on this plane and I hope to meet her again.
