    Let's move on to our next group of countries, this time accompanied by a piece of music you are most likely familiar with. It was part of the medley during the Parade of Nations at the Beijing 2022 Opening Ceremony. If we had Romanian folk dances, we must also have the Hungarian Dances, composed by Johannes Brahms in 1879, performed by the Hungarian Symphony Orchestra.

    Now that the voting order has been finalised, let's have a look at the projected finishing positions for each nation based on previous results achieved by nations in those voting slots in the previous 17 contests. What say you? Would you sign on the dotted line and accept the projected result with open arms, or would you rather dare to take your chances on Saturday?
     
     
       Nation Projected Finish Notes about this voting position 1   New Zealand 34th New Zealand becomes the second nation in TISC history to kick-off the voting for a second time, Slovenia being the only other nation to do so. The last time New Zealand voted from position number 1, they finished the contest in 33rd place out of 34 nations. They will be hoping for changed fortunes this time around. 2   Tunisia 13th A favourable draw for Tunisia perhaps as this voting position has seen 2 winners in the past. Tunisia voted previously from position 2 at TISC Annual 2019, finishing 8th, one of the nation's best results. Position 2 has been very fruitful with no less than 5 top 5 results and 7 top 10 finishes in the history of the contest, both are TISC records. 3   Poland 23rd This is the earliest voting slot Poland has ever had but could be a lucky one as we have seen 2 previous winners come from voting position 3. Could this give Poland a first ever TISC podium? 4   Bulgaria 32nd Bulgaria has not voted this early since they opened the voting at the TISC Open 2016, finishing a very respectable 10th. Early voting slots for Bulgaria may be a good omen then. France twice one bronze from this voting position, but apart from that, this voting slot has offered limited success and Chile finished rock bottom at the TISC Annual 2019 from this position. What's it to be for Bulgaria? 5   Spain 30th Spain has history of voting from position 5, finishing 26th at TISC Annual 2019. Nothing notable has been achieved from a nation voting in this position, though Hungary might disagree as they finished 4th at TISC Open 2019 from position 5 in the order, the best result from any nation from this slot. 6   India 26th Incredibly, this will be the 4th time that India has voted from position 6 and the third time in the last 5 editions! The fact that no nation has finished on the podium from position 6 and India finished last from here at TISC Annual 2014 doesn't offer much hope for India. Or does it? It was in fact India who achieved that 6th place from this voting slot, their best ever TISC result. Can they continue in that vein of form at TISC Annual 2022? 7   Colombia 16th Colombia don't have a good record from voting early so perhaps they were not jumping for joy when the draw was made. However, Italy won from position 7 at TISC Annual 2018 and New Zealand claimed silver at the most recent TISC from this very voting slot so it's not all bad news for the Colombians. 8   Germany 7th Position 8 seems like a lucky voting slot. A winner may have not have been crowned from this voting position, but it did give United States a silver medal as hosts at TISC Open 2018. Added to that is that fact that 7 times, nations voting from this position finished in the Top 10. the one caveat for Germany is that Croatia finished last from this position at TISC Annual 2014 when Germany won their only TISC crown. 9   Hungary 12th It's the first time a host nation has ever voted from position 9 but it has been a relatively good slot, offering 5 top 10 finishes but only a solitary bronze medal from the United States at TISC Annual 2018. Position 9, a safe pair of hands but not spectacular enough to make it to the top. And although it is a relatively decent voting slot, Moldova did come last at the most recent TISC Annual from this position. Will Hungary be able to bring some glitter to this voting slot? 10   Croatia 28th Reading into the history of this voting position offers a bit of a conundrum for the Croatians. Sure, it has given out bronze medals United States and Ireland at TISC Open 2017 and 2018 respectively, but it has been calamitous for Bulgaria who finished at the foot of the table from this slot at the last 2 TISC Open contests. The only 2 occasions Croatia voted earlier than this has offered mixed fortunes also, a respectable 15th place at TISC Open 2019 but a last place finish at TISC Annual 2014. So the bets are off for this one, only time will tell which side of the coin luck will shine on this time. 11   Sweden 33rd An unlucky draw on the face of it for Sweden, who finished in 27th place the last time they started at position 11 in TISC Annual 2015. No medal has been won from here since Italy won silver all the way back at the very first edition of TISC in 2013 and we know that was an unlucky finish with Italy just being pipped to the post by none other than Sweden. Two 4th place finishes at TISC Annual 2016 and 2017 reinforces the "unlucky" tag of this voting slot. Can the Swedes change all that in Hungary? 12   Slovenia 29th Slovenia don't exactly have the fondest memories of this voting position, having placed 38th from here at TISC Open 2015. In fact the highest result from any nation voting at position 12 is 5th from Algeria in TISC Annual 2016. Apart from the fact that 2 host nations voted from this slot, there is not much of note happening at this voting position. 13   Indonesia 14th Unlucky for some? Well maybe not quite for Indonesia as voting position 13 has already been a successful voting slot, with Ireland winning TISC Open 2016 from this position and Denmark picking up a bronze at TISC Annual 2014. It has also been responsible for 6 top 10 finishes and only once did a nation finish outside the top 30 from this voting position so the Indonesians may be on to a good one here. 14   Greece 27th Greece has previous history with voting position 14 and not a good one, having placed 33rd of 35 nations at TISC Annual 2022. However, it's not all doom and gloom for the Greeks as it has been a successful voting slot in the past, most notably for Canada, who won the title from position 14 at TISC Annual 2020 with Netherlands also clinching a silver from here at TISC Annual 2019. 15   Netherlands 22nd Voting position 15 has been a bit of a mixed bag over the years. On the positive side, it has offered up 4 top 5 results with Great Britain winning silver at TISC Annual 2015. However it has also thrown up a lot of poor finishes, and has seen nations finish outside the top 30 no less than 5 times, the nadir being Czech Republic's last place finish at TISC Open 2017. So what side of the pendulum will the Dutch be on this year? 16   Canada 6th A very good draw for the Canadians as voting position 16 has been responsible for a record 7 top 10 finishes over the years, even if the best result has been a 5th place courtesy of Denmark at TISC Annual 2020. Canada's previous outing at position 16 resulted in a 16th place finish. The worst result of any nation in this slot was 31st so at the very least it should be a respectable finish for the Canadians this year.... well, that's what the stats say anyway. 17   Lithuania 11th Voting position number 17 is perhaps the most middle-of-the-road slot of them all. A 5th place finish for Switzerland at TISC Open 2014 being the highlight. On the other end of the spectrum, only once has a nation finished outside of the top 30 from this slot but this comes with a huge caveat.... Tunisia finished 31st and last from this position at TISC Annual 2015. But outside of those 2 results, previous results are packed in the middle  Will Lithuania follow this pattern or be a breakout star? 18   Argentina 25th Argentina return to voting position 18 for a second time, having placed 18th from here in TISC Open 2018. Germany won the very first edition of TISC Annual from this voting slot. Could Argentina follow in their footsteps? Well they will need to go against the grain as the highest position since then was a 6th place finish at TISC Open 2019 for Spain. 19   Italy 37th A bronze medal for Canada at TISC Open 2016 is just about the only highlight of voting position 19 over the years. It has been a barren desert for the most part with 10 of the previous 17 nations who voted in this voting position finishing outside the top 20. In fact, the highest position since Canada won that bronze medal in 2016 was a 19th place finish and even that came back in 2019. Not an ideal draw for the Italians to say the least, but the future is yet to be written. 20   Serbia 24th Voting position number 20 has been highly successful over the years. Ireland clinched victory at TISC Annual 2015 from this very position, and came back for a bronze one year later. Mexico also claimed silver at TISC Open 2016, giving position 20 a very good reputation of being a lucky voting spot. Well, that was then. Now? Well 16th position has been the best if had to offer since 2016 with Spain crashing to last place from here at TISC Open 2018. Have Serbia found this "lucky" voting slot much too late, or are they about to bring back the good old days? 21   Finland 31st Finland enter the voting this year at position 21, a voting slot that gave Great Britain victory on home soil at TISC Annual 2017, just one edition after Colombia crashed and burned in last place at TISC Open 2016. Apart from that win for GB and a 5th place for Italy at TISC Annual 2015, this has been an unnotable voting slot for most nations who had the misfortune to land here. Who knows where the Finnish finish this time? 22   Mexico 4th Mexico will have fond memories of voting position 22, having voted from here when they hosted the contest at TISC Annual 2019. Uruguay finished rock bottom from here at TISC Annual 2020, but apart from that, results have been largely decent from this slot with Sweden winning silver at the last TISC Annual in 2021. 23   Ireland 20th For the second contest in a row, Ireland will vote from position 23. They finished 8th last time out and can be hopeful in that Serbia won from this voting position during TISC Annual 2020 and Colombia also claimed silver from here at TISC Open 2017. There was also 6 top 10 finishes to be found from the 23rd voting nation over the years. There have been lows too, however, with 4 nations finishing outside the top 30 from this position. 24   Kazakhstan 10th Denmark struck gold from position 24 in the voting order at TISC Open 2018 with Romania also claiming bronze at TISC Open 2015. Could this be the positive omen Kazakhstan need to give them a first ever podium finish? Not too much negative to say about this voting position, a 32nd place at TISC Annual 2021 being the all-time low for this voting position. 25   Portugal 5th Position 25 is gaining momentum as being a lucky voting slot. Canada won from here at TISC Annual 2021 and there has been 6 top 10 finishes in the past 9 editions alone. Portugal won't be giving away this voting position anytime soon given those stats! 26   China 3rd This has been a notriously solid voting position.... with 7 top 10 finishes, it has a reputation of throwing up good results, including a bronze medal for Sweden at TISC Open 2019. But results in general have not been spectacular from here outside of that, but mid-table respectability is generally the worst-case scenario. In fact, India's 33rd place finish at TISC Open 2021 was the first time in 17 editions where any nation finished outside the top 30 from this voting position. 27   Malta 15th Slovakia took home silver from position 27 at TISC Annual 2014 but since then, good results from here have been few and far between. However, results are very much on the rise.... a 5th place finish, backed up by a 4th place in the 2 previous editions for nations in this voting position gives a lot of grounds to be optimistic for the Maltese... can they go one step better and get onto the podium at TISC Annual 2022? 28   Brazil 19th There have been 3 podium finishes in the history of the contest for this voting position but never a gold one. Perhaps this is the time to change that for Brazil. However, look away now Brazilian fans, the worst-ever result at TISC was achieved in this very position in the voting order, when Venezuela scored only 4 points on their way to a last place finish at TISC Annual 2018. Lightning doesn't strike twice, does it? 29   United States 35th United States return to voting position 29, from where they finished 14th at TISC Annual 2016. However, the real story about this voting position is that it gave us the most recent winner of TISC, Czech Republic striking gold from here at TISC Open 2021. Can United States keep up the winning ways for this slot? 30   Great Britain 17th Voting position 30 is the epitome of consistency, with no fewer than 10 nations finishing 11th-20th from this voting slot. It did give Italy a silver medal at TISC Annual 2016 but apart from that, it has been mostly middle-of-the-road showings. A great voting slot if you want the best chance of a good decent position but don't expect to be winning the title from here. Well that's what the stats say, Ed Sheeran will have other intentions. 31   Czech Republic 36th As the most recent winners of TISC, you might have thought Czech Republic earned the right for a good voting position. Well the voting order gods had different ideas and placed them in one of the worst voting slots available. Only once in 17 editions has a nation broke into the top 5 from this position and that was a 5th place finish for Argentina at TISC Open 2017. It has been generous in handing out last place results however, with both Colombia and Azerbaijan both falling victim of this curse, with a combined total of just 17 points between them at TISC Open 2015 and TISC Annual 2017 respectively. 32   France 2nd France are on to a good one it seems with voting position 32. They have already finished 10th from here at TISC Annual 2018 and indeed there have been 7 top 10 finishes from this voting slot. In fact, only 4 times in 17 editions has a nation finished outside the top 20 from this position so it looks like France will be flying high, but just how high? Well here comes the drawback and it's a rather big one..... no one has ever finished in the top 5 from position 32! 33   Ukraine 21st Victory for Ireland at TISC Open 2014 and 2 silver medals from Brazil and Norway at TISC Annuals 2017 and 2018 respectively have been the eye-catching highlights of voting position 33. Apart from a 4th place finish for United States at TISC Open 2016, the reaminder of results from this voting slot have been nothing to write home about. Ukraine will be hoping to bring some much needed joy and hope back to their citizens with a big TISC result this year and will be hoping to re-write those stats. 34   Turkey 9th This has been a mixed bag for the nations who previously voted from position 34. Bulgaria finished last at TISC Open 2013 and Hungary placed 40th from here at TISC Open 2014. However, it has given us a TISC winner, with Lithuania winning gold at TISC Open 2015 after voting 34th with Serbia also bagging at bronze at TISC Annual 2017. Turkey will be striving to replicate those successes rather than the bad of voting position 34. 35   Moldova 8th This will be Moldova's latest voting slot in TISC history and it seems like a relatively good draw. Malta won bronze from here at TISC Open 2020, Australia won silver from here at TISC Open 2019.... can the Moldovans trump them all go all the way to the TISC title in Hungary? 36   Romania 38th Romania tend to finish mid-table when starting from a late voting position. Well they will need all the luck they can get this time as they have been drawn in one of the worst voting positions according to previous results. Only 8 nations have voted 38th in the order and it proved to be unforgiving for New Zealand who finished last from here at TISC Open 2019. Sweden showed the other side of position 38 however when they claimed a bronze at TISC Open 2021, so everything is possible. 37   Denmark 18th Only 8 nations have had the opportunity of voting from position 39 and 2 of those came home with medals....Ireland won gold at TISC Annual 2019 while France won bronze at TISC Open 2020. Apart from 39th place for Algeria at TISC Open 2015, results have been largely positive for this voting slot so it appears as it Denmark struck relatively lucky here. 38   Israel 1st Voting position 38 has only been used 5 times before and in those rare occasions it has given up 2 medals, a silver for Colombia at TISC Open 2014 and a bronze for Australia at TISC Annual 2019. All this means that Israel have been given the most favourable voting position of all according to our combined stats of average results based on voting position. Whether they go on to make the victory in Hungary remains to be seen. 39   Slovakia 39th Slovakia have a bit of a reputation for late voting slots, having closed the voting at TISC Annual 2019. They only managed a 29th place finish on that occasion and when they voted in the penultimate voting slot at TISC Open 2015, they finished in 19th place. So what's it to be this time for the Slovakians? Stats say that they have an uphill task.... forget the Tatras... this task is as big as Everest as this is statistically the worst voting position of all. But then Slovakia likes a challenge don't they?

    Our next stop is a city of 65 thousand people, West of Budapest. The name "bánya" means mine (as in the place where people go mining), while "tata" means... daddy? Uh, anyway, Tata is actually also a small city located next to Tatabánya, so you get two places for the price of one!
     

    The Turul
     
    If Tatabánya is famous for one thing, it's the Turul statue located at the top of the hill next the city. But what is the Turul? Well, for one it's depicted as a mythical creature similar to a falcon which is why I named this team the Falcons. Obviously the "Turuls" wouldn't have made much sense, it's one creature, not a spices. The origins of the Turul go back to the conquering Hungarians, it was a Hungarian military symbol during the Hungarian migration. And yeah, this statue made a big impression on me when I was a child because literally every time you travel to Budapest in the Northwest you will see it, even when you are on a train.
     

    Castle of Tata
     
    As far as other sighs go, you should visit Tata because it's an actual holiday destination. My freshman camp was located here and we had a great time. As you can see from the picture above we got another castle here because of course we do. Next to the castle you can find the Öreg-tó (Old lake), the oldest fishing lake in Hungary. This place is perfect for anyone who doesn't like the crowded vacation destinations like Lake Balaton and wants to spend some time at a quiet, peaceful little city.

    I hope in 2024 we're still here to think about this kind of frivolities and make any sort of prediction...
     
    at the moment, I wouldn't take it for granted...
