Isten Hozott!

August 2016

Aren’t these sunflowers LOVELY? Every day I drive back and forth for Hungarian school I enjoy the beauty of the sunflowers, fields, and the gorgeous Bükk Mountains!

We will be in Toledo and also in the Cleveland area August 27th but check out our information page HERE for events that are happening all around the USA in the upcoming months! If you have a Hungarian event coming up I will advertise it for free! Please send the information to

Debreceni Nyari Egyetem

I am still in Debrecen studying Hungarian and it is a great experience but it is also a challenge. Some days my brain hurts because the way to construct sentences in Hungarian is very different than how it is done in English. I feel ok about my pronunciation, especially when I see a written word, but trying to repeat tricky words without seeing them first is a challenge. I have learned a lot and am very thankful for my USA family being able to hold down the fort at home. I am also thankful for my sweet family in Magyarország who have so generously welcomed me into their homes and who patiently work with me on simple Hungarian conversations. May brain is very full and now I need some time to digest it all. If going to Hungarian school in Debrecen for 2 or 4 weeks in the summer is something that interests you I am happy to talk about it with you or you can check out their website Debreceni Nyari Egyetem.

Adventure in Transylvania Tour 2017

The dates are May 30th (leave the US) through June 13th. This tour will focus on the Hungarian communities in Transylvania (Romania). We will meet in Bucharest, Romania at the airport and spend 12 wonderful days enjoying the people, foods, nature and handwork of Transylvania. Join us as we travel to St. Anna Lake and Red Lake, take part in the Csíksomlyó Pilgrimage and visit Székelyudvarhely, Hargita Mountain, and Szováta. We will continue to explore the region with a visit to the Parajd Salt Mine and Korond. After traveling to Kolozsvár, Torockó we will then participate in a cooking course and then make our way to Budapest. The per person package price includes is based on double occupancy and includes all entrance fees to scheduled programs, two meals per day, 1st class air-conditioned coach, all accommodations, and an English-speaking guide during the entire trip. Flight and travel insurance is not included. We have had quite a bit of interest in this trip and the initial deposit of $500 is due by September 5th, 2016 and is fully refundable until January 15th. If Transylvania is on your bucket list this would be a great time to visit because it will not be on our schedule again until 2020. If you are interested in seeing the Quick Look itinerary and a registrations form, please email me at

Adventure in Hungary May 2017

I am still finalizing a few details on this trip but it will start around June 15th. This will be a little shorter trip that mainly includes Western Hungary with an option for a “Time in Budapest” extension. I had several teachers and grandparents ask for a tour that comes after school is out so if you know someone who falls in this category and is interested in exploring Hungary, please have them get in touch with me! We will do some city sightseeing but we will also spend some time with artisans and small family businesses in the countryside to learn how folk art is passed in through the generations. If you would like more information as soon as it is available please email me at Magyar

This past May we visited a family who works with the Blue Dye process. There are very few families who continue this tradition! Here is THE VIDEO our daughter, Elizabeth, put together from our visit! Enjoy!

New Hungarian Travel Bingo Sheet!

We have developed a few more Bingo pages. If you plan to travel to Hungary and you like a little friendly competition let me know and I can send you our “Hungarian Words” version. This one has words you might frequently see in both Hungarian and English so you will have a little bit of language learning built right in with the challenge! Email me at and put “Hungarian Words Bingo” in the subject line and I will send you a printable pdf.

All the best!
