West Virginia Hospitality 2005 - 2010                 

The hospitality of average West Virginians toward foreign travelers in 2003 created opportunities that were to become multi-faceted. One engaging trip was our visits to Eger Hungary; whereas we drove a 1959 Imperial with American flags in their area's land rally event; My wife's attaching American lapel flag pins to the appreciative. Later, a prominent Hungarian businessman gets emotional and states; "To think Americans, Germans, Hungarians and Romanians at one table. Our names and home State were broadcast on Hungarian media on multiple occasions. 

We would meet Jonathon, who keeps a picture of Marx in his workshop. A serious man who misses the former Communist governance, would be the same man to take us to the Budapest train station for our trip to Munich. This serious man gets emotional as we board the train to leave. A beautiful cabin has been arranged by the Hungarian businessmen with instructions that no one is to bother the Americans. Overall; a very positive experience with very positive feedback.
 


Extraordinary undertakings were engaged at home to enhance the experience for an ever-expanding list of European visitors; some from the professional realms of International Business, Legal, Engineering and Law Enforcement. New visitors, who were once under the governance of the former U.S.S.R, were introduced to Americana and an array of sites within America, Canada and West Virginia. They returned home with the most positive of impressions...

Comments

Hello, Valerie, hello, Anthony and family...We have received the package on the 15th of January. It is a miraculous recollection of a wonderful holiday with You…The flag which I have sent is a rare relic of a once existing state, that does not exist anymore…

"I was surprised to come across your painstaking preparation off Hungarian Hungarian Goulash and thought that your German friends might like to know about my new book on the famous Hungarian dessert wine...The title is 'Tokajiine - Fame, Fate, Wine... Miles Lambert-Gocs Williamsburg, Virginia".

"Hi ..... I am interested in booking a ride .....Could you please let me know what we need to do to arrange that and what the prices will be...
