1. Where did you grow up?
I was born in Debrecen, the second biggest city in Hungary. When I was 10, my parents decided to move to the capital, to Budapest so I live in Budapest since then.
2. If you could be an expat anywhere in the world, where would you choose?
I’ve never lived an expat life however I would like to try it. I think living abroad for a while can extend the perspectives, can help adapt different cultures and habits in addition it would be a great opportunity for the kid(s) to learn the language.
Meanwhile being far away from friends and relatives, let the cozy home behind can cause emotional and physical difficulties which mean pros and cons of living an expat life.
There are lots of fantastic countries where an expat life would be amazing so it would be difficult to choose one. However, I love the sea and sunshine so probably these two features would be given.
3. What would you miss most if you moved away from Hungary?
I would miss my parents and closest friends and the beauty of the Hungarian language.
4. Friends are in Budapest for a weekend - what must they absolutely see and do?
The first place to recommend would be the St. Stephen’s Basilica.
The second would be the Buda Castle, Gellért Spa and the fourth would be one of the Ruin Pubs.
5. What is your favourite food?
6. What is your favourite sport / form of exercise?
I used to be a professional handball player. So sport is a lifestyle for me, I cannot live without it like we cannot live without air. I love running, functional training, CrossFit with small weights 😊but I also like skiing, hiking so it doesn’t really matter what kind of sport.
7. What is your favourite place in Hungary?
Badacsony and Esztergom.
8. What career other than yours would you love to pursue?
Actually, I’m in a transition and turn to the human side of life. I do believe that human beings are the key in the 21st century and as a business coach my mission is to unleash your potential and support you to become a better version of yourself. If not coaching or marketing, I would host a talk show or inspirational show where inspirational thoughts and ideas would be spread and shared with the community through the discussions.
9. What’s a job you would definitely never want?
10. Where did you spend your last vacation?
Traveling is another passion. I do believe in experiences and moments and traveling is the activity that gives me inspiration, motivation and moments. My official vacation was in Mallorca in September however just after that I spent a month in Spain because I walked through the El Camino from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port to Santiago de Compostela, around 800 km in total.
11. Where do you hope to spend your next one?
In Asia. Indonesia is on my bucket list so I hope next year I can make it real.
12. What was your favourite band, film, or hobby as a teen?
Oh :D, favourite bands were Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, Celine Dion and Dj Bobo. Sorry, no Hungarian songs from that era.
I had two favourite American movies, Grease and Dirty Dancing. I know, they are typical girlish movies.
13. Apart of temptation what can't you resist?
Victoria Secret Bombshell
New running shoes
…and airline tickets :D
14. Red wine or white?
In Hungary during the summertime I prefer white wine from the Badacsony region.
In wintertime I would rather drink red wine from Villány.
15. Book or movie?
Book & Movie
16. Morning person or night person?
Morning person, usually wake up at 4.30-5.00 am, this is the ’me time’.
17. Which social issue do you feel most strongly about?
Well-being as a key future focus. I mean well-being from a holistic view when we have to manage our physical, emotional, mental, financial, career, social, community to find the meaning & purpose and the balance in our life.
18. Buda or Pest side?
I rather choose a bridge which connects the two sides. Buda and Pest have its own amazing stories with its wonderful buildings and streets. In my view there’s no Buda without Pest and vica versa. I never mention them separately.
19. Which achievement in your life are you most pleased about?
I’m in a transformation period and just finished my El Camino. I was walking almost 800 km to find my inner voice and intuition again. It wasn’t planned by myself, I just got a ’calling’ one day and I let this journey happen.
This journey inspired me to launch my CAMINO COACHING PROGRAM which will support individuals and companies to create their own Well-being map.
20. What would you say is your personal motto?
I don’t really have one single motto however I have some thoughts about what I’d like to share with the Xpatloop Community.
’Today is your day. We, all have the feedom to choose. Choosing change can take us to the unknown and undiscovered territory of life. It can be fearful as it’s not known however amazing things can happen when we start it. Be open, be inspired and not just hear but listen…’ – Nikolett Huszák
