While here in the US things seem to be moving forward well enough regarding the Corona-19 virus and travel, in Hungary they are having issues with vaccine distribution. They are addressing the set back and they do plan to be in a positive place later in the summer. For safety reasons and for general accessibility we are moving the departure date forward to July 29th to ensure that the majority of venues will be open for us to visit when we arrive.

My whole life I felt like we were missing pieces to our Hungarian heritage. The only things passed down through the generations were the food and some family stories. After this trip, I feel like I got to fill in those gaps. I have a better sense of what it means to be Hungarian-American and I feel a stronger connection to my great grandfather.

I got a more thorough experience of Hungarian culture than if I would have traveled by myself...
