Snake in lake
I was laying on beach shore and relaxing. In one moment I notice something among rocks on shore. One young water snake lift hers head high next to one rock and just watch me curiously, occasionally hiding behind a rock. Not a pretty sight or nice surprise! I found out that is not dangerous. My online research come up with the one possible name - The dice snake (Natrix tessellata). This is a European nonvenomous snake and it belonging to the family Colubridae, subfamily Natricinae. It can be found in many countries including mine.
No, it didn't scare me enough to run from beach even not preventing me to step again in lake. I saw snake one more time enough to take photos of her.
Balaton lake have a rich natural life in it and around it. The governments of surrounding counties recognize importance of preserving its flora and fauna.
Things probably change a lot here during summer, but Siofok seemed to me a very quiet and peaceful city. Walking around seemed very safe.
On Sunday we came back from the city center to Adler Hotel (45 minutes walking) late at night. In spite of the complete darkness surrounding us, which was a little scary, I felt safe there.

Look for the prices before You order in a restaurant or a pub or somewhere else, because some place works with "free" prices. It means the price depends on the nationality of the guest. The foreign tourists sometimes get extreme bills!
A Bad Mood can spoil a town.
I am sorry if this page is depressing, but I generally loved Hungary, perhaps it was the weather, or going from the beauty of Tihany to the modern and charmless Siofok, but every trip has it's low spot. This was mine, and I apologize. I hope someone builds a more positive site to show me what I missed. The picture is from Fertud.
