#143 Budapest – A #GaleForceWins Tour

Home/Gale Force Wins/#143 Budapest – A #GaleForceWins Tour

#GaleForceWins collaborated with Hungarian native Judit Lovas to interview 12 Canadians living and working in Budapest. Those interviews will be released on our channels in the coming weeks. In the process of moving around the city of #Budapest over 9 days to record these interviews we captured close to 1000 images of the beautiful city and some additional footage in the winery region around Lake Balaton. In a throwback to the times when people would sit around with a photo album chatting about a trip we recorded a digital “photo chat” on Zoom sharing Gerry’s photos on the screen and letting people know the details. In addition we have interspersed video from around the city with some voiceover by our wonderful guide Aniko Dalos , Owner Pannonvoyage Travel and Event Agency.
