  • Descrição


    I live on an island in the River Danube in an orchard with a meadow. Summer is beautiful with blue skies, sunshine and colourful migrant birds visiting the garden. I need a bit of help in spring and autumn and can give a a comfy bed and a veggie supper to a couple of cheerful, energetic people willing to give me a hand for 3 or 4 hours a day here in return. Might suit a couple or friends willing to share space. I’m English and speak some Hungarian and a little Spanish. It’s a beautiful life here, between trees and river, in a small village. Farming practices on the island are small scale, gentle and friendly for birds and butterflies and the history and culture of Central Europe is fascinating to explore. I’m about 45 kilometres from beautiful Budapest.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    Hungary is somewhat off the beaten track, with an interesting history that shaped the culture. The language is a challenge but every graduate learns a foreign language as part of their degree usually German or English. There are many Nobel prize from Hungary and inventions- the biro, rubics cube are two, as well as discoveries related to nutrition, trace elements and vitamin c have been made by Hungarians. The small population gives a feeling of space and freedom, with open puszta and unspoilt forest easy to explore and enjoy. The people are polite and helpful as well as proud. A bogrács on an open fire under the stars is a lovely way to spend a summer evening!

    Beautiful walks, regular foot passenger/ bicycle ferry that links with buses to Budapest and Szentendre; a pretty local town. Local kocsma ( pubs) restaurant, beach burger bar at sziget csucs ( the tip of the island) river swimming - respect must be shown to the power of the Danube, the current is powerful. Canoes , kayaks maybe available to rent nearby, with life jackets. I have bikes to borrow. Birding trips easy to arrange. Budapest is the centre of Europe pretty much, you can reach a beach on Croatia in 5 hours… great sketching / painting opportunities everywhere.
    Accommodation is separate to mine, but you might need to share bathroom etc with other guests from time to time. Easy going, considerate about noise after bedtime, veggie kitchen please, no smoking inside obv. Dispose of butts and avoid fire hazards. Take care with camp fires, look after each other if you’re having a drink, palinka is powerful! Take care with fences and gates to keep animals safe. Be good company or take some time out!

    I welcome forward looking, International people who see the great harm caused by negative racial/ sexuality stereotyping; people who see it as a personal responsibility to examine their own attitudes, use of language and habits of mind in the light of this. If you are comfortable with the full range of lovely people, I look forward to welcoming you!
