Spontaneous Combustions

Forward – Preview – or just a taste of what’s to come

Inspired by my fathers mis-adventures as he set out to explore free’r far away lands – at a time when escaping from your own Country was frowned upon, if even for an adventure, sound familiar!?

Istvan V1st was my father, who I never got to know so well.  His own adventure ended abruptly, riding his electric scooter to Safeway’s, irony hey.

Crazy life of travels – spontaneous overland momentum

Istvan randomly decided one day – he’d move his entire house contents 150 miles to a bungalow in London, a slight issue was ‘he didn’t actually own a bungalow in London, nor anywhere else.  This wasn’t going to stop him, after-all he’d already transported himself from Budapest to Britain, fleeing from the Russian uprisings without documents, no idea where he’d ultimately end up or what he’d do once he got to ‘where-ever’ he was heading.  He must have literally just decided one day ‘I’m not a tree – I can move’ – so of he set with just a bit less than he could carry.    

Spontaneous combustions started out with inspiration from Istvan’s willingness to ‘go see for himself’.   Spontaneous, mystic influences from our past and its ability to bring out the curious adventurer in us, however it goes.  It’s my hope that it can be helpful, in some way, maybe jogging a memory, mood, emotion or inspiration.  Some things that might be useful with your own ideas and ventures, however you like to see it.  “That’s the reason”  as Istvan liked to put it, when-ever he had a simple crazy plan.  

What evolved from my own, ‘no real crazy master plan’, just turned out to be, a million miles worth of bumpy roads.
