    Wine a little you´ll feel better.

    Hello and welcome to a new article! As already mentioned in the previous article (“Vacation in Rheinland-Pfalz.”), after six days in the Pfalz the journey continued to the Mosel. As our first destination we chose the Schmitt-Hof vineyard, which is in the village of Thörnich. This small village is located directly at the Mosel and about 25km north of Trier. There we stayed two nights. The first day we spent exploring the surroundings by racing bike. We fought our way up the mountain between the vineyards and enjoyed the cool headwind on the way down. The next day we had no choice but to stay in the motorhome. It was…

    Vacation in Rheinland-Pfalz

    Hello and welcome back to a new article! About two weeks ago I started my second holiday with the camper. Due to the worldwide Corona pandemic it was clear from the beginning that I would not go abroad. At that time there was no real plan, where it should go to, yet. It was only clear that we would go to the Pfalz and then to the Mosel. But that’s exactly the beauty of a holiday with a camper van – you go somewhere and stay where you like it. About an hour after departure, I got a call from a very good friend who currently lives in Bochum. At…

    Goodbye

    Hello and welcome back to my blog! Today the last post about my semester abroad will probably appear, because I’m already writing my last exam on Monday. Finally I could not return to Pécs. In general it will probably take some time until I can go back to Hungary again. Nevertheless, the time in Hungary counts as one of the best in my whole studies. When I think back, I get tears in my eyes. I got to know so many great and wonderful people, learned so much, had a lot of fun and took so much with me. I have become even more independent, have experienced first hand what…

    Easter traditions in Hungary

    Hello and welcome back to my blog! I hope you all had, despite the current situation, nice easter days. Hungary has its own tradition for Easter, which is called “húsvéti locsolkodás” (english: “pouring at Easter”). On this day the girls stay at home and wait for the men, who either alone or in groups, wander through the village and “haunt” the girls. When the men arrive, the young women try to flee, but are then “captured”. Then the men recite a rhyme that they have learned by heart and ask for permission. Afterwards the women are “watered”. In the past it was a bucket of water, today it’s more like…

    Not bored at all

    Hello and welcome back to my blog! The previous week before the last, the online courses started for me. How can I put this? It takes some time getting used to it. The lecturer and we students meet in Microsoft teams for a meeting. While we leave our microphones and cameras turned off, because the internet connection is not good enough for 30 people to talk at the same time, the lecturer talks to us and shares his or her screen with us so we can watch the presentation. Even though everyone tries hard to make it as “normal” and exciting as possible, it doesn’t really work. However, I’m glad…

    The Temporary End

    Welcome back to my blog! This article is the hardest to write for me so far, because I am back in Germany. The last week began as usual. I attended the lectures, met my friends and from one day to the next it was like this: The university will be closed for the while due to the corona virus and I will go back to East Frisia. On Wednesday afternoon of March 11th I stood at the train station in Pécs and welcomed my boyfriend whom I had not seen for seven weeks. Afterwards we went to the apartment we had booked. It was located in the middle of the…

    Interesting Facts about Hungary

    Welcome back to my blog! Today with a slightly different article. I would like to give you some interesting facts and tips about Hungary. Especially since I know that some of you are now considering whether Hungary (Hungarian: Magyarország) worth a visit. At this point it should be said: It definitely is!

It is especially known for Lake Balaton, the largest European inland lake, in the western part of the country. The national language is Hungarian, although many of the inhabitants can speak German. English is not yet so widespread. This is mainly because…

    The first month in Hungary

    Hello, welcome back to a new article! About a month ago I arrived in Hungary. I can’t really grasp how fast time passes. I have experienced a lot in the past month. A lot of good things, but also negative ones. At the moment my health is unfortunately weak, so I have to take it easy at the weekend to be fit again by Monday. In the meantime I am with my grandmother and I will be nursed a little. Furthermore, there are many things I have to do for the university. Among other things I have to give two presentations next week, write a paper and take a test.…

    Flag-Party, Mohács and other incidents

    Welcome back to a new article! The week just flew by. At the beginning of the week there were lectures, homework and presentations on the schedule. Beyond that I still had to do some paperwork. When I left the building after my Hungarian lessons on Thursday morning, the weather was beautiful again. So I decided to walk the two kilometers to the dormitory. At noon I drove to my grandmother. There I used the time and the rest to do all the tasks for the university to have more free time on the weekend. On Friday the so-called “Flag Party” took place. Everybody brought the flag of his country to…

    Tiszakécske

    Today I take you on a little journey back in time. In the morning of the 15.02 I went together with my grandma to Tiszakécske to visit my grandpa. The two live about 140 km apart. The journey there and back takes 2.5 hours each. On the one hand this is due to the fact that the route only leads over country roads and on the other hand because in Hungary on country roads only 90 km/h are allowed and of course there are several villages on the way.
