Song have been inspired by the great beauty of this area. Historic and modern day converge. Love the food photos!

Blue Danube
I can't say I know this song, so will have to check it out but I have no doubt that this place inspired a lot of people as it sure has a special kind of aura around it.

Cheapskates of the world unite
We are so glad we are not the only ones to balk at the entry fees to sites. We both were shocked at the cost to enter the Great Synagogue and the baths and decided to give them a miss and you sort of feel upset that you don't see them and also angry that they are so expensive, but it is always compensated when you can get a cheap meal and a beer. Looking back at our trip we both really loved our time at Budapest and you reminded us of what a fantastic place it is.

Cheapskates of the world unite
Well said! I also do feel bad for skipping some places, but some entrance fees are simply way over the top... Happy to hear I brought you back some good memories from Budapest. :)

Sneaky Granny
Love the story of the sneaky Granny on the train stealing seats, and also of the restaurant stealing a bronze statue. Only had twenty minutes in Bratislava sitting in a bus at a bus station, and once again you have us wishing we had stayed for a few days, the town really does look beautiful and with goulash and beer it sounds almost like paradise.

Sneaky Granny
We really did enjoy our time in Bratislava. The goulash in Devin was simply divine and as for beers, some good ones for sure!

All Blacks vs Wallabies
So I just want to check... when Millie grows up, will there be issues about who she will be supporting? ;)

All Blacks vs Wallabies
Grant always says there'll be no issues whatsoever... as long as we support the All Blacks of course ;)

Super tasty goulash with dumplings, yum!

Goulash looks fabulous...
I've never goulash served with dumplings that looked like that...we clearly need better goulash representation in Australia :)

Goulash looks fabulous...
It was definitely one of the best I've ever tried, so reach and full of flavour and the dumplings... yum! Agree, no such goulash in Australia... yet! :)

Slovakian Tatras
Remarkable the Polish side is crawling with tourists but from your account Anna, the Slovakian side is not. Poprad sounds the sort of place we would choose as a base, 'cause we love spectacular countryside with NO TOURISTS! Amazing trip you are having and Millie looks as if she is also having a ball. (What a cutie by the way...and doesn't Dad look proud)!

Slovakian Tatras
We do prefer places with the least amount of tourists possible as well, I was just really surprised that the Polish side can attract so much tourism and the Slovak side hardly any at all... Yes, dad is very proud and we are all having a great time. Thanks for commenting Dave!

Nothing to do...except blogging
Our travels (and blogs) are littered with towns like Poprad, which are not exactly what you expect and we always tend to get caught there longer than we wanted. The upside is it gives you the chance to take it easy and catch up on blogging. It is sort of funny when you find a town that has so much tourist potential but isn't doing anything about it, unusual in this day and age. Great photos of those peaks.

Yes getting caught in a place like that certainly has some advantages. And yes it is very unusual that a place like this doesn't try to get some more tourism... especially after seeing so many places that are trying to make money on absolutely anything... Funny world!

Slovakia
You are doing some great travels. This is beautiful!! Keep the details coming....we hope to follow in your footsteps.

Slovakia
I wish we had more time in the Slovak Tatras as there surely was a lot to see... Next time! Hope to give you even more reasons to come to this part of the world in the next blogs.

Each blog gets better and better and you've stirred our interest. Amazing photos and trek. Glad it wasn't raining.

Thank you. We were really happy it wasn't raining too! Tatras are really beautiful.

Good comedy and travelling - its all in the timing.
Heard that the treks in the Tatra Mountains was good but never realised how popular it was, but then I guess if I have heard about it most of the rest of the world has too. After seeing your photos I understand why they are so popular - really spectacular. A 3 hour wait for a cable car would have had me back at a bar and perhaps rolling down the hill later. Congratulations on the line I have never seen written before "Since the forecast for the next day wasn’t too bad – 4C in the morning but no rain throughout the day" 4C in the morning wasn't bad??? but then I looked again and hoped that you didn't mean -4C. Looking forward to Poprad

For a moment we thought about staying longer in the bar also, but rolling down the hill in the dark put us off a bit. Haha, yeah it was 4C, not -4C, though it probably wouldn't have been much of a difference anyway...It wasn't raining and that was the most important part of that sentence. Thanks for reading!

Tatra Mountains
What a spectacular part of Poland Anna. Kinda confirmed by the crowds that also think so. Thanks for doing the trek for me. Is Koscieliska the feminine for Koscielisko? Any relation to Kosciusko?
25th November 2016

Tatra Mountains
Yes it is a really beautiful part of Poland. And yes, Koscieliska is a feminine of Koscielisko - for example Dolina Koscieliska (Koscieliska Valley). As for Kosciuszko, no relation to Koscielisko. Tadeusz Kościuszko was a very important military leader in the end of the 18th century, while Koscielisko is just a name of the town, which was most probably derived from word 'kosci' which means bones. Thanks for reading and commenting Dave.
