Although my parents took that cruise across the Atlantic to N.Y. to Cleveland, Ohio, I had never been to Hungary. Due to a notice in the Magyar Marketing e-newsletter, I took the plunge and signed up for a tour in May of 2016. I think I was the oldest traveler with the group, but I never felt that way.
It was the trip of a lifetime; fabulous in every way. Let’s start with the fact that I never wondered where I would lay my head any night. Each of the hotels was first class. There are days when I relish one of those fabulous morning buffets. “Just hop on the bus, Gus, no need to discuss much.” Each day was planned to precision with breath-taking sights and luscious meals. Funny that the stuffed cabbage on the Danube cruise tasted exactly like that my Mom made. I am so lucky to have her recipe.
Liz and Andrea made sure we drank Hungarian wine in the middle of a vineyard on the back of a truck. Not only were our meals authentic but set in interesting places: outdoor poppyseed strudel baking, etc. We observed ceramic, glass and other folk artisans. I have treasures I could not have gotten in town. You will never regret signing up with Liz. ~ Barb, Michigan
