The socio-economic fieldtrip was held for geography BSc students this year. Our accommodation was in Mogyoróska, a small (83 inhabitants) village, where beauties of rural life could be experienced: grazing horses around houses and in the morning cockcrow warned us to go for a pig slaughter.


One of the poorest and at the same time richest region of Hungary was travelled by us. We spent time not only in Mogyoróska, but the whole surrounding was visited as well. We attended gold mine, museum, castles, but my personal favourite was the Adventure Park of Sátoraljaújhely. At the lower side of the chair-lift – taking us to the peak – one had to decide how to return. All together decided to scrape through, it means to slip through a cableway at a velocity of 80 km/h to the other peak. Firstly I was frightened, but now I'd return any time to feel again the whizzing wind around me and flying above the valley.


We were lucky as catching up into an ERASMUS+ youth exchange program, so in the second day Transcarpathian, and in the third Transylvanian young people joined us. That was a good occasion for getting to know each other. in the afternoons we could taste each other's traditional cuisine and in the evenings we had the occasion to have a chat.
Some of us decided to return on Monday instead of Saturday, it was a great decision as more adventure could be enjoyed.

 

On the field trip we could get not only credits but lasting experiences as well.
