We moved to Hungary in 2005 and built a house in a small village just outside of Budapest, backing onto the national park.. Moving from Southern England to Central Europe has given us the opportunity to travel widely in this part of the world and we have enjoyed destinations as far apart as Firenze and Warsaw. We try to find the bargains and little gems in Europe and had a great week in Paris last year using a fellow host.
We enjoy hosting and meeting people and rent our apartment with the ethos of providing a personal service rather than just another place to stay. Budapest is a city of many layers and every time I am in there is always something different, which in turn we try to share.
Hungarian food, its beer and wines once you have sussed them out are excellent, as is the hospitality.
One of airbnb's questions for describing yourself is do you have a life motto...well As Captain Kirk was drawing his last breath in one of the Star Trek films, he leaned to Spock and said "did we make a difference.......?." This seems to be a reasonable way to live life.
