27 · Care for One Another






This bracelet was given to me when I was visiting Szeged, Hungary. Szeged is the home of my favourite men’s handball club and you can see their logo on the bracelet. I was visiting the city for three days and stayed with an Hungarian family that I had met via the Couchsurfing platform. My host was also a very big MOL-Pick Szeged fan and he knew most of the players and even the coach. We went to see the match together and had a beer afterwards. He is the one who gave me the bracelet when I continued my travel.

I decided to stay in a Couchsurfing community because I wanted to learn how the locals are living and under which conditions. I was interested in their stories and their history and wanted to get an idea of their everyday life. I think it’s a great system to learn about each other and offer a bed to people who need a place to stay. It is very important to me that people still care for one another and help each other out.

Jeg fik dette armbånd, da jeg besøgte Szeged, Ungarn. Min yndlingsherrehåndboldklub kommer fra Szeged og du kan se deres logo på armbåndet. Jeg besøgte byen i tre dage og boede hos en ungarsk familie, som jeg mødte via couchsurfing-platformen. Min vært var også en meget stor MOL-Pick Szeged fan og han kendte de fleste spillere og endda træneren. Vi tog hen for at se kampen sammen og fik en øl bagefter. Det var ham, der gav mig armbåndet, da jeg fortsatte min rejse.

Jeg besluttede mig for at bruge couchsurfing, fordi jeg ønskede at opleve hvordan lokalbefolkningen lever og under hvilke forhold. Jeg var interesseret i deres livshistorier og om Ungarns historie og ønskede at få en ide om deres hverdag. Jeg synes, det er en god måde at møde nye mennesker at kunne tilbyde en seng til folk, der har brug for et sted at overnatte. Det er meget vigtigt for mig at vide at folk stadig tager sig af og hjælper hinanden.
