Uw tips:Drive to little villages far outside of Budapest. I drove 3, 4 hours away to the north east and met wonderful happy people everywhere I went. When I pulled over for a break, farmer asked me if I needed help ( I was just taking pictures of wildflowers along side of the road.)
I rented a car with GPS at Budapest International Airport and drove deep into interior of Hungary into little a village where I met amazing, friendly people. From there I drove to a funeral in another small village near Ukraine border. The people there too were absolutely amazing, joyful, friendly and delighted to see me. At the end of my stay, I wished I could have stayed longer. I want to go back and take my grandson next time. I want to go back also to volunteer somewhere.
