What was your motivation to do the project/Why did you decide to be a volunteer (in Hungary)?

-One of the motivations was working in the school because I want to be a teacher later so the experiences are so helpful and one very good friend of mine is a half hungarian so I knew a little bit about the culture.


What was your project? What was a regular day like?

– When I worked in the primary school in the first time I woke early, at 6:30 and after breakfast at 7:30 I walked to the school which is really close to the volunteer house. My task was to help in german language lessons and sometimes preparations to project. In the afternoons I walked around in Nagyvázsony or in this area, In Veszprém or I was in the youth Center with the local guys.  In summer there were 2 German Klubs, one in Tótvázsony and one the other is here in the youth center, me and an other german volunteer created them together.



Which is your favorite memory of the time you spent here?

-I think the visit in Kéked is my best memory. I felt myself there so well-coming and happy there. We visited the place who experienced non traditional tourism and those things we visiting a national park and there we made our own Lángos ( Lángos is a hungarian speciality)


 A funny memory you’d like to share with the readers?

-There was a festival in Leányfalu where we cooked pörkölt together and afterwards there was a priest blessing the cows😀


 What do/did you like the most about Nagyvázsony?

How was life in the flat?

Why would you recommend doing volunteering? Why at Fekete Sereg?

-I would recommend it because it was a very nice experience to get to know the hungarian culture and the people at fekete sereg were all very helpful.
