Then I received another e mail message on my e mail from FB saying that I was having trouble logging in and it provided a link for me to log in. It was like someone was trying to log in to my account because it wasn't me doing any of this.
Question:
Are there are computer smart people out there that can help me stop this? I have already changed my passwords.
If they have access to my e mail, FB and AdvRider page, who knows what might happen.
Lalo,
it is called a 'Phishing' scam.

Since you are on FB, they can guess email addresses, or just randomly spam emails addresses with something that looks like an official FB message, with a link to reset your password. The link goes to a fake site that looks like the real thing. The fake reset asks for your current login and password, and now they have your login and can take over your account and reset theassword, locking you out of it.

This is REALLY common with banks. I see these types of emails regularly for credit cards I don't have or use.

The advice about never clicking the links is sound. You can't trust links even from friends because they may have been hacked. When somone sends me a link i verify with them that they intended to send it to me.

Tokaj

I made it to Tokaj Hungary.
I went to the top of Tokaj hill to find a place to camp.
I found a good place, but I ended up finding a better place closer to town.....much closer

Right next to town, I strung my hammock along side the river.
The stars were out at night but I had a morning shower, so I had to put on the rain fly






I love waking up to views like this

Tokaj

That morning, the town was trying to set a new world record for the longest continuous wine glass table. They were set up one kilometer of wine glasses thru the town. And the best part was, when the record was beat, everyone got to drink all this wine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And I officially helped make this record happen.
Not only did I drink the wine, but I help poured the wine.
It is not every day you help set a new world record.

I love this shot.

And this was one of my favorites
Furmint is a type of wine that Hungary is famous for

Germany, Austria and Italy also helped make this record possible (and also brought some of the best wine)
I thought that most of the wine would be the cheap stuff.
And yes, I saw a lot of wine being poured out of a plastic jug.
but there was some special stuff poured as well. you just had to look and know what to look for

I parked my moto in the heart of the town (in a no parking zone). The police didn't seem to mind. But me and the bike got a lot of attention.

I met these people from Hungary. Nice group from Budapest.
They approached me and asked about my trip (which seems to be uncommon for Eastern Europeans to be not shy like that)

Hi Lalo,
It was really a pleasure for me to met you in Tokaj, you are doing such kind of trip that i would like to do when I will be retired.
Please don't forget that I will wait you under the hills of Collio to taste our amazing white wines.
Ciao

After we broke the record, I went around the town and tasted wine at the different wineries.
I am sure most of you have never had a wine from Hungary and probably didn't know that Hungary even made wine.
But the fact is, it is the Wine of Kings and the King of wines.
Not all wines.
But namely Aszu wine

This is a sweet wine
The grapes are left on the vine until a mold attacks the grapes and sucks the water out. It looks nasty but what is left is pure sweet nectar.
It is called the noble rot
Not much juice come out of these grapes so it takes a lot of grapes to make one bottle.
And it tastes like liquid honey
There are various degrees of sugar content and the more sugar, typically the more expensive the wine.

Here are some grapes in the vineyard being attacked by the mold, called Botrytis. It doesn't happen every year. Maybe one in 3 years where the weather conditions are just right so this Aszu wine can be made.

I went to this wine cellar to taste the wine.
The owner/wine maker let me try some of his Aszu wine from the barrel.
He was also a motorcycle guy.
He owned a Ducati Hypermotard.
I liked his wines. He sold me one of his best wines at a big discount.
Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The next winery, I met this group of Hungarian women doing the Bachelorette party thing. I offered to be their stripper for the night, but I think my price was too high

I bought a 1993 aszu wine with 6 Puttonyos
1993 was great year and 6 Puttonyos is the top (except for the Eszencia, which is the absolutely purest nectar and by far the most expensive)
