just a couple of random things from Hungary

Today was a momentous day, I survived my first rugby training session with the Szeged rugby team! Lots of forwards work tonight with rucking and maul forming... I am sure that I will ache tomorrow but all good fun
Also, I had my fifth Hungarian lesson. My reward for doing so well, it to receive more work!!!
Hungarian is quite different from Latin based languages with suffixes doing most of the work in the language. The best analogy I could think of is that of tagging mp3 with possession, tense, plural status and much more being bolted together to form monster words!!!
I've also lost 10kg in weight in 6 weeks!!!

I wish to propose my first of many photos of hunglish, part Hungarian, part English (angol) all bad!

Hungarian Bank holidays

Thursday the 23rd of October is a bank holiday remembering the Hungarian revolution.
So the next Friday is an "unoffical" holiday to make the weekend 4 days long. However, this day has to be made up, so this Saturday I will be working(!!!!!) the day which would be the 24th!
Confused, you should be!

Half way there

We've (Chris O'Shea and Andy) made it to Hungary in a large
The journey in 2 days a nutshell

  • 1300 miles
  • 13h / 10h on the road
  • no accidents
  • 3.5 hours spent in traffic jams
  • Too many cans of coke and too much junk food

Now the return leg!
