A Little History

Hello From Hungary

Welcome to my blog, a mixture of everything that interests me and my family. Expect to see lots of photographs of Hungary our newly adopted home, tales of our mischievous dog Haley Husky and plenty of general day to day adventures that seem to follow us everywhere.

My husband (Eric) and I, with our 13 year old son (Raphael) moved from England to Hungary in 2017. We had taken early retirement and wanted to leave the chaotic city lifestyle we lived in, to continue with a more sedate and rural life. Things were not always plain-sailing and adjusting to our new life threw up plenty of challenges.

After viewing many properties across the length and breadth of Hungary we settled on this run-down house that we would soon call home. It was in a tiny village with approximately 300 residents, a small pub, a couple of shops, a school and a church.

Now (March 2020) after many renovations we can see the finishing line. Lots still to do but as with any project, the changing weather, money restrictions, and health issues have slowed our progress down. Internally we can say we have finished but the outside still needs work, tiling the veranda, car port, and the biggest improvements are needed in the huge garden. There’s always something needs doing.

So that’s a short potted history, this blog will take you on our journey with us sharing current and onward developments. I do hope you enjoy reading about our lives here and I can give you an insight into what it’s like to be an Ex-Pat in Hungary.
