I tell my stories, with a humorous twist, of living and teaching English in Békéscsaba, Hungary.
I write about many things, such as my trips, my job, and my experiences.
My main focus, however, is on the Hungarian life. I try to bring up everything I notice, and I highly encourage readers (Hungarians and non-Hungarians alike) to join in the conversation.
