Europe » Slovakia » Bratislava Region » Bratislava » Old Town August 17th 2019

I very much enjoyed my short stay in the Hotel Lev, but after a coffee it is time to walk to the Old Town to meet Martin Sloboda. I know he has an extremely busy schedule, and at best I expect him to have a quick coffee with me to give me a speedy overview of the walking tour that he will do with our guests. Instead, he spends the best part of the next two hours giving me a personal walking tour and showing me the highlights of Bratislava!! I feel enormously privileged as he is such a knowledgeable and interesting man, and I see and learn much more than if I had simply explored alone. Bratislava is the capital of Slovakia, situated in the south western corner of the country, practically on the borders ... read more

Todo fue idea de Borjita, como iba a Eslovenia va y me dice que cree que Melania es eslovena y me busca el pueblo de donde viene. No esta totalmente en la ruta pero al Borja no le voy a decir que no. Bueno, he tenido que cruzar unos montes que no tenía pensado cruzar pero ya estoy en Sevnica, el pueblo de Melania. Me esperaba encontrar la estatua en la plaza del pueblo, o al menos frente a la estación de ferrocarril. Pues no, hay estatuas pero de héroes soviéticos, una gran fabrica de filiburcios, y cero Melania. Preguntando al final me entero, como 3 km por el carril bici al este (que ultraje no?). Pues donde dicen 3 mejor cuenta 11. Al final preguntando mas y consultando google se encuentra. Esta a 11 kilómetros ... read more

Tento trip trval skoro pol roka a asi by som to rozdelil na dve casti, na vychod a na zapad. Vychod, filipiny, indonezia, malajzia a zapad ostatok. Obe casti su diametralne odlisne. Na vychode som vedel do coho idem, na zapade ma cakalo nezname prostredie. Vychodnu cast vo velkom ovplyvnili moje zdravotne problemy takze som si to nemohol uzit naplno, co bolo velmi na skodu, hlavne filipiny a cast mindanao kde clovek spocita turistov na dvoch rukach. Tam sa isto este musim vratit vdaka fajn cs babam a hlavne ma laka okolie general santos. Indonezske regiony (sumatra, severne moluky) moc neprekvapili, skor by som povedal, ze citim mensie sklamanie. I ked treba povedat, ze na molukach mi absolutne nevyslo pocasie. spodna cast bornea bola fajn i vdaka fajn ludom z ubytka a np bako. Penang bohuzial ... read more

Ako vzdy pred letom ani cul som moc nespal. Rano sprcha, ranajky a smer na dohodnute miesto kde ma mal vyzdvihnut bus. Cakal som od 8.45. doslo neake auto, z neho na mna hovorili gruzinsky, chvilu som bol v tom, ze ma asi transportuju k busu ale nie. Okolo 9.05 prichadza za mnou majitel ubytka, ze bus je uz na ceste. Masina prichadza 9.15. klasicky minibus. Rozlucka s majitelom. V aute dve lezby a dvaja chalani. Vyplaca sa klasicky po vystupovani ako v kazdej marsutke (mimo miest kde su ofic,predajne) Cesta nieco okolo 20min. Letisko z vonka okej ale dnu malo priestoru. Cela hala zapratana ludmi cakajucimi na odbavenie sa. Eticket tu nefunguje, kazdy musi ist k prepazke. Skoro vsetci mali vytlacene letenky ale neni to za potreby. Pri pultiku som dal pas, ukazal letenku v ... read more

After the night on the bus; leaving wet Krakow at midnight we arrived in Bratislava to sun at 7 am. Our airbnb was a short walk from the bus station and we were invited to check in before our host went out at 8.30 am, eventhough her official checkin time was 4pm. This allowed us to recover from the overnight before going out to explore. She was 60 and lived in a huge, very stylish apartment with high ceilings. We later found that she had many stories to tell and we learnt how it was for her to live here under Soviet occupation. Her brother had escaped 2 years before independence and it resulted in her father getting a demotion and losing his and the rest of the family's travel privelages that had come with his ... read more

Today we have a 5 hour drive to Slovakia for no particular reason other than so the old man can check Slovakia off his list of countries visited. It’s actually only 200 miles, but involves crossing the Tatra Mountains. We plan to stop en route at Oswiecim to visit the concentration camps of Auschwitz. A visit to a concentration camp turns out to be surprisingly expensive. By the time you’ve added parking, entry fees and a trip to the toilet, it’s over £30. In any event, you’re not allowed in without a guide and the next English tour is in 3 hours time. So we depart for Slovakia instead. We stop for brunch in a pizzeria too far off the tourist trail for English menus to be an option, so it’s a case of pizza Russian ... read more

Po navrate domov bolo vsetko fajn, dokonca sa aj nieco zacalo rysovat ale to skor skoncilo ako zacalo.No i tak dobre sprijemnenie dni pred vianocami s blaznivou matkou (23). Potesil aj vylet s korejkou (35) (budapest - dolna streda - praha) co som stretol v soule (cul studuje vo finsku). Po tomto vylete vsak musim dat za pravdu jednemu korejcanovy co som s nim pil v neakom korejskom meste. Ten mi povedal - korejky su nahovno, japonky moc kricia, filipinky su best :) V januari som bol prakticky cely mesiac sam doma (rodinna dovolenka na sri lanke). Nuz ale aspon som hostil cez cs jednu taiwanku (35), co povodne mala pracovat v budapesti rok, lenze biznis nevysiel tak ju firma stiahla nazad domov, s tym, ze moze este 2 mesiace cestovat po europe. Opat som trosku ... read more
