Meet Dóri

I would like to introduce my readers to this wonderful lady called Dora – a 25 year old Hungarian who has traveled far and wide at such a young age. She loves snail mailing, the aviation and traveling. img_6548

I was impressed with her right after reading this blog post on her wonderful blog about my country. Never before had I read a foreigners unbiased and truthful view on India like she wrote.  Usually we Indians are used to reading derogatory comments about our country and even more so – certain foreign film makers that shoot in India choose only to depict the filth and the poor state of people and affairs. Dori for a change tried to present a very true picture of what it was like traveling to the capital of India.

I commented – ” For once someone is writing positively – or rather factually about India. Otherwise the poor country is always shown as a shackled unsafe place with people imagining elephant rides and snake charmers on the side of the roads.We need to meet dear lady. Next time – please make it to Mumbai”

Coming back to her blog – you can see how detailed and thorough she is in her writing. For example in a post about penpals – she has given resources of where to find them as well as in another post also told how to write a letter. Its almost like a mini learning session.

She has a pretty active Instagram account as well. I am sure you would really enjoy following her. It has been so good to know her a little bit and I look forward to meet her when she comes to India next (or when I go to Hungary)
