Europe » Slovakia » Bratislava Region » Bratislava » Old Town April 5th 2018

Bratislava is a jumble of elegance, style, history dating back thousands of years, and happiness, all wrapped up with welcoming friendliness that is too often missing. I came to Bratislava on a suggestion from Tim and was prepared for an interesting stopover on the way to a desired destination. After two and a half days of turning up tiny laneways, visiting majestic churches, traipsing over castle grounds that date back thousands of years, I’ve come to realise that this should be a quiet priority on any Eastern European itinerary. It may not have the high reputation bestowed upon Vienna, Prague or Budapest, but it sits proudly on the Danube and compares favourably with these cities. As you pass by stately, sometimes neglected, buildings, plaques stop you in your tracks to announce that Napoleon signed the Treaty ... read more

Today I struck up a conversation with 3 young Germans from Berlin. Just 18 years old and recent high school graduates, 2 of these men have opted out of normal society for 10 months, determined to find their place in this world. Their trip is called Lost In The World and can be followed online. Their other option was backpacking in Australia but they concluded “everybody does that.” Their goal is to ride to Tokyo, heading towards Vietnam before turning left into China and onward to Japan. Think of what you were doing at 18; i challenge you to match this. In 2016 I met two 25 year old Koreans in Spain, who had ridden 20000 kms from Seoul , and like the Germans, carried 40 kilograms on each bike. They said their experiences and adventures ... read more

. Our taxi to the airport today was a mix of Uber and the guy next door with a car we can rent. It was a little old corolla type of car with half the boot taken up by an LPG bottle. I’m pleased to report that he has the same sense of pride in his car and makes sure it is washed at least once a year. The case had to sit in the front with the driver and 3 of us squeezed into the back. I didn’t even bother with the seatbelt. The upside was that he knew the way, took a few risks to get us into the traffic, and he only cost about $5. He had a very good tip because where were going zloty are of no use. , We are ... read more

Co cloveka napadne ked sa mu nepodari ani druhy dlhorocny vztah? Kupit letenku a vypadnut z europy. Prvy plan bol juzna amerika, plan na pol roka prakticky vypracovany za dva tyzdne, uz ostavalo cakat na zaujimavu letenku s odletom v maji. Najlepsie to vychadzalo s turkish airlines, pristatie v bogote a odlet o pol roka z rio de janera (cca 650€). Lenze moj datum este furt nebol. Neskor prichadza super sprava od miriam, na svet ma prist male kakavko. Nuz tak trip vylucujem a opat sa snazim zaclenit do spolocnosti. Co sa uz moc nedari ked kazdy z rovesnikov uz ma rodiny. Mesiace utekaju a na svet prichadza kakavko. Parada. Po tom co som dal vypoved to najskor vyzeralo, ze od buduceho roka zakotvim v inej firme, lenze som sa jedneho dna zobudil a povedal si, ... read more

Opat skore ranne vstavanie. Na motoracik ma odprevadza vajco spolu aj s dcerou. Ta ide na bicykli a samozrejme, ze vyhladava vsetky bariny. Cesta do prahy trva dlhsie, bo z berona idem osobakom. Stojime skoro vsade. Okolie je fajn, na turistiku velmi vhodne. Raz to tu budem musiet prist preskumat podrobnejsie. Z nadrazia pesi presun florenc. Flixbus prichadza nacas. Kontrola listku a smer brno. Bus bol poschodak, tak strategicky som si sadol dole do storky. Bohuzial v brne stretko so soulikom odpada, tak idem do blizkeho obchodaku na zachod a na jedlo. Ha ale clovek si za 15kc moc toho nekupi. Fakt nepochopim ako v dnesnej dobe vo fastfoodoch v obchodakoch neakceptuju platobne karty. Nic mi neostavalo a musel som skocit do mcdonaldu. Samoobsluzny pultik a cakanie na jedlo. Prave tu zaucali novu babu, tak to ... read more

Tento vylet bol hlavne o kamosoch a o futbale. Vsetko vyslo, skoda ale, ze nie aj stretko v brne. Skoro cely trip som pisal prvy krat na mobile ako sucast treningu na aziiu. Berlin Yumiko ma vazne prekvapila, necakal som, ze sa japonci vedia tak odviazat. Tanec, spev na ulici, nadavky. Uplne naj pre mna ale bolo spolocne spievanie happy birthdays, len skoda, ze nebol aj happy end :) Drazdany Futbal uplne super, hlavne atmosfera. Fajn spolubyvajuci. Urcite to kazdemu odporucam. Mesto fajn na jeden den. Navstevu by som ale asi preferoval pocas vianocnych trhov. Ubytka boli obe v pohode, prve by som volil ak fakt chcem ostat len v starom meste ( vianocne trhy), druhe zas ak by som sa chcel zabavat (chlastat pri nemeckych cenach neni nic pre mna). Praha Tu som mal len ... read more

Sedim si tak na kanadskej welcome party v ballse. Debata sa samozrejme zvrtne aj na futbal. Oooo dynamo drazdany , tam to musi byt paradne, priemerne navstevy okolo 20 000 ludi a to dokonca aj v 3.lige, no cul uz su v 2.lige tak je to okolo 25 000. Na druhy den, kuknem len tak zo sradny rozpis zapasov zltociernych a co nevidim, hraju vo stvrtok 25/1 doma a este aj proti st.pauli. Zistovanie cien ubytka a dopravy. Ubytka dobre predrazene, doprava busom v pohode, i ked za taku sumu sa da letecky otocit aj daka zaujimava destinacia. Listky pre neclenov zacnu predavat az na moje narodeniny, bookujem zatial zrusitelny hostel cez referal . Vstupenka sa mi dari zohnat bezproblemov, kupoval som ju hned po spusteny predaj... read more

Pekny mesacny vylet v relativne teplych krajoch, i ked v marokupo zapade slnka bola dost velka zima. kanarske ostrovy (tenerife) uplne paradne, neuveritelne vela moznosti turistikovat, sem sa teda este musim niekedy vratit. Plaze tiez fajn, more ciste, len neuveritelne kvanta dochodcov. Doprava bezproblemova, ked nefungovali busy, stop nebol problem. Strava sa tez dala. Ubytka na urovni ale to sa aj odrazalo na cene V maroku som popozeral dalse chybajuce casti a opat tak ako minule ani teraz ma to neako extra nenadchlo. Uz mi tu zostava len pobrezie stredozemneho mora a tura na jebal toubkal. A ak by bol cas tak aj navsteva paradise valley (to som chcel cul ale nevydalo), vodopadov ouzane ci pohoria Akchour a samozrejme futbal (ten sa ani teraz nevydaril). Ale myslim, ze sem sa uz asi fakt nevratim, mozno akurat ... read more

Tento trip vznikol necakane po mojom navrate z ukrajiny. Kedze este pred mojim odchodom k vychodnym susedom nastal na firme konflikt medzi mnou a upratovackou nezostavalo mi nic ine ako podat ziadost o rozviazanie pracovneho pomeru, ta bola po mojom navrate prijata. ok, tak co cul? Treba sa ist niekde zrelaxovat do tepla. Rychli prieskum padol najskor na barcelonu, kde som mal slubeny gratis listok na barcu od carly, ktoru som v lete hostil. Rychlo este pisem teda larine z ciny, ktora prisla na rok studovat do baskicka, ci dame stretko v katalanskej metropole a vybehneme hned aj na jej milacikov. Odpoved nedala na seba dlho cakat a uz nam rezervovala ubytko cez airbnb . Fajn, barcelona na predlzeny vikend neznie zle ale ked uz budem nezamestnany chcelo by to tam pobeh... read more

To Slovakia or not, that is the question. Formerly part of Czechoslovakia, Bratislava is Slovakia's capital city. It Is located on the train route from Budapest to Vienna, sits along the beautiful Danube River, and very close to the Austrian border. It became the capital as recent as 1993. But the nightlife is said to be among the best in this part of Europe, though the city itself is nota raving beauty. Notably a nice place to hang out, Bratislava is safe, friendly, and hassle-free. And there is always something to do, which I like. With a population of only 415,000, it is smaller than the city of Fresno, next door to my home in Clovis. The city still has a goodly share of Communist era buildings in the modern city center. The city has two ... read more
