(Érték) válságban Görögországban -15 hónapja Rodoszon

A possible English version of this post will coming soon. 😉 Évek óta sok-sok íráson keresztül fejezem ki rajongásom a görög hagyományok, és az itteni természet kincsei, szépsége, gazdagsága iránt. Mindig őszintén írtam minden felfedezésemről, tapasztalatomról. És pont az őszinteség miatt most fontosabbnak tartom arról írni, ami ugyanitt Görögországban napról-napra porrá zúzza a hitemet az emberekben, ami nem csak az én jó közérzetemet veszélyezteti, de elhomályosítja sőt a kihalás szélére taszítja ezeket a természeti-, kulturális gyöngyszemeket, melyeket szűz tekintettel oly nagy szerelemmel fedeztem fel és osztottam meg számos formában. Ez most nem az az írás lesz, amit a turisztikai irodák majd felkapnak (már a terjedelme miatt sem). Rengeteg dolog cikázik a fejemben mostanság. Nehéz lenne róluk listát készíteni, de a környezetemmel kapcsolatban (amely most Rodosz szigete) egy folyamatos reflexív monológ fut bennem, melynek egyik konklúziója egy kezdődő általános bizalomvesztés, ami iszonyatos frusztrációval tölt el. Nem jó jel. Az egyik lehetséges oka ennek a széllel tovaszálló be nem tartott ígéretek garmadája részben a könyvemmel kapcsolatban (hónapok óta húzódó hatalmas lelkesedéssel beharangozott interjúk, találkozók, segítségek önkéntes felajánlása, majd minden …

The importance of our intuitions and our own nature in raising a healthy generation / Megérzéseink és saját belső természetünk fontossága egy egészséges generáció felnevelésében

* Görgess lejjebb a magyar verzióhoz * Dear Reader, this time I would like to post a video about a very important topic. This topic is exactly our culture that we live in, and the way how we can live a healthier life inside this really crazy social/economic environment. In the recent past I participated in a Birth Doula Training in Hungary, because I was pretty much sure that the roots of everything in our life goes back to the beginning of our life. And the impact of the environment, the experiences that surrounds us already when we are a fetus, and then especially around the birth process throughout our early years. Women’s health in general, the health during pregnancy, the emotional support of the mother during the birth process, the support for the new family that promotes bonding and nurturing environment for the new life can establish our healthy future on Earth. And it is not an extreme romantic statement. Too many things around us indicate that we just don’t give a damn about …

Weekly HELLO from Rhodes – 28/01/19

*magyar hanganyag a post végén! Hello, welcome to the weekly magazine of a Hungarian woman, who moved to a Greek island in 2018 and writing a book there through an intensive research and interviews with locals. The purpose is giving you an insight about the daily life of this island as a foreigner all around the year, and also about the book-writing process. And you can participate in this process too!

Different approaches, different way of thinkers are always create movement. And this is what we need!   Week 4th / 21st January – 27th January The Apocalypse is here The weather last week on Rhodes was very similar to a catastrophe movie. We had 3 earthquakes in one week. No injuries or damages happened, but it is a very scary feeling. I felt only the one on Thursday 22nd January, which was the smallest (4.6), but all the furnitures were shaking …

Mushroom collecting in Monolithos

Once upon  a time, last December I visited the charming, peaceful mountain village in the southwestern coast of Rhodes island called Monolithos. The name Monolithos means ‘single rock’. The village got its name from the nearby castle that was built 300 meters above sea level on a ‘single rock’ in the Byzantine era and which was fortified in 1476 by the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes, Pierre d’Aubusson. It has majestic view, one of the main attractions of the island. It has a small church inside the remains of the walls of the castle worshiping Agios Panteleimon. My visit to the village had a certain purpose that time, because I was invited for a mushroom collecting walk in the neighbouring pineforest by Manolis and Despoina the owners and chefs of the one and only Old Monolithos Taverna inside Monolithos village. Their kitchen is always authentic, clean, fresh, local and of course the food is made by lots of care and love with decades of experience. Because of this authentic kitchen with the fresh …

Why you should spend the winter on a Greek island

Winter is a really good period for travelers, who are deeply interested in the local culture of Rhodes, a perfect occasion to observe the authentic everyday life of the community of the island. This period is also for the travelers who adore nature, silence, who prefer to visit a Unesco site, and ancient, byzantine remains without the crowds of people. For people who are looking for an alternative peaceful, relaxing holiday. Because Rhodes is such a big, fertile, diverse, interesting island with too many gifts of Nature all around the year cycle.
