Xpat Community Ezine / Thursday 14 May 2015
Dear Member, first for your interest is a great new XpatLoop Interview:

* Nóra Szegedi, XpatLoop Events Manager. Example Q&A’s: What brings you to the Xpat Wine Club? “Well, a great friendship with XpatLoop.com, and of course with wine!  I lived in other countries myself for many years, so I feel close to Xpats living here in Budapest, and am glad to introduce them to lots of outstanding Hungarian wines and their makers.” Are you a wine expert or 'just a wine lover'? “I need a few more years of wine tasting experience until I can call myself an expert… But i’m on my way there :- ) Already I've passed the WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust) Advanced course…”. Any favourite quotes? "It is the useless things that make life worth living and that make life dangerous too: wine, love, art, beauty. Without them life is safe, but not worth bothering with.” Stephen Fry.

Also worth your attention is a related invitation to the next XpatLoop social networking event on Thursday 21 May at the Hilton Budapest. In case you’re able to join then you can get all the juicy details by simply clicking here!

Now here's hoping you like what's included for you below.
Yours sincerely with kind regards, Stephen@XpatLoop.com

Guardian: Budapest’s Margaret Island Among Ten Best Islands In Europe
Guardian: Budapest’s Margaret Island Among Ten Best Islands In EuropeBritish newspaper The Guardian has listed Margaret Island among Europe’s ten best but lesser-known islands. “Margaret Island, in the middle of the Danube in central Budapest, spends winter shrouded in mist; come summer the island is an oasis in the midst the city. Encircled by a 5km asphalt running track and jetties from which to launch small boats (and bodies – some of the swimmers here are hardy folk), the illusion of an island holiday is enhanced by two thermal spa complexes”, the piece writes in praise of the popular Budapest park and recreation spot. more »
