Reunion in Hungary

Written by

At the end of May, a portion of the Inspiro staff met in Budapest, Hungary for a team reunion. Having not been together in person for over a year, the time for fellowship was most welcome. Our purpose for the week was two-fold – to spend time catching up as a team and to scout out places for the Incarnate students to see during their time in Budapest. The later half of this goal involved visiting places like Memento Park, the Hungarian House of Music, and the artistic village of Szentendre.
