I went to Hungary, Slovakia and Romania 2 years ago. The countries are beautiful. It's weird seeing a horse and buggy go by, walk down to a town well to fill up bottles of water, and then being able to jump on an internet connection faster than here at home anytime I want. Talk about cultures colliding.
One part of culture they still have that I miss: Young people able to carry a conversation. Even with a language barrier I had more interesting conversations with young people there in 2 weeks than I have here in a year.
