    Babsi on the Beach..

    July 12, 2019 in Slovakia ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    Das sanfte rauschen strömenden Regens weckte uns heute morgen zärtlich..angesagt war Regen bis 17 Uhr..Im Zombie-grummel-modus verpackten wir uns regensicher und brachen etwas später als sonst aus dem grauen Wien auf..irgendwie muss das Wetter Angst vor uns gehabt haben..in dem Moment als wir die Straße betraten, hörte der Himmel auf zu weinen..
    Den richtigen Weg aus Wien haben wir zu unser eigenen Überraschung schnell gefunden..dafür haben wir uns beim nächsten Ölhafen dann verfahren..😅..
    Der Tag sonst führte uns entlang von Sonnenblumen-, und Windkraftfeldern, eine kurze Fährüberfahrt auf steinigen, wilden Donaustrand und auf eine erfolglose Suche von groß angekündigten römischen Ruinendörfern..nach 93km haben wir einen stop in Bratislava eingelegt und uns schockverliebt..die Stadt ist bodenständig und sympatisch, gespickt mit großartigen Restaurants und Straßenmusik und von der örtlichen Burg hat man einen einmaligen Ausblick auf das grüne, von Windkrafträdern bevölkerten Österreich zur rechten bis zur etwas chaotischen, von Kraftwerken übersäten Slowakei..wir entscheiden uns zu bleiben..morgen gehts dann nach Ungarn..

    Budapest - > Bratislava

    July 6, 2019 in Slovakia ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    Nach einer sehr kurzen Nacht sind wir früh morgens zum Bahnhof (leider genau in der Zeit in der Macces für eine Stunde schließt 🙄) , haben einen wunderschönen Sonnenaufgang beobachtet und uns dann ein Zugabteil organisiert. Dann gings von Budapest nach Bratislava (Burgbild) und auf eine kleiner Erkundungstour durch die Stadt.Read more

    Bratislava

    January 1 in Slovakia ⋅ ☀️ 2 °C

    At the Budapest airport and finally have a good signal and free minutes to update.
    Been a few busy days, seeing a lot while cruising in the morning to Bratislava, Slovakia on 1/1/20. Beautiful little city with castles, churches and Brew pubs. Guess what tour we took? City-beer tasting! Did a bit of site seeing through the local markets then back to the ship to change for the Captain's Gala reception and dinner. Oh, yes, we sat at the Captain's table! Meal was amazing, wine and drinks were excellent, and the conversation exceptional! Others at the table shared their past AMA journeys some as many as 7 and ready to go again. Onward to Budapest where we spend the last part of the cruise.Read more

    Bratislava

    December 28, 2018 in Slovakia ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    After a 2:30 min bus ride from Budapest, we arrived in Bratislava. The Virgo Hotel was just a short stop for leaving the luggage and we immediately started walking to the castle. This a huge building with a stunning view over the Danube, the UFO bridge and St Martin’s Cathedral. Downhill, after a long stop for lunch, we walked to the Old Town and could still see St. Michael’s Gate (Michalská brána), Schöne Náci Statue, Čumil, the Primate’s Palace (Primaciálny palác) and Blue Church (Modrý kostolík). It was a pity that by 16:30
    It was already dark and that we couldn’t see the magnificence of the church by daylight. Nevertheless, the city is nice and all main attractions are within walking distances. It would all be perfect if we didn’t have to eat out or buy groceries. Most people aren’t friendly. In fact, it seems that smiling is a bit difficult for their facial muscles. As for communication, it is not so easy because most people, like shop assistants, waiters and bus drivers, don’t speak English... that’s about it for Bratislava.

    #1 Slovak Pub

    January 3 in Slovakia ⋅ ☁️ -2 °C

    Dinner of assorted meats, and sheep's cheese pierogi at 1. Slovak Pub, the biggest in Bratislava and allegedly #23 best in the world. It has 9 rooms and can seat over 600 people! Food was very nice, especially the crispy bits of bacon fat on the dumplings mmm.

    FACH that's good

    January 3 in Slovakia ⋅ ☁️ -2 °C

    Quick post to memorialise the delicious 'lemonade' in the far right of this picture - sea buckthorn, earl grey, and rosemary flavour, and DELICIOUS. Duck soup and bread and butter great too, at Fach Bistro in chilly, pretty Bratislava.

    Secret City Trails Bratislava

    January 3 in Slovakia ⋅ ☁️ -2 °C

    Our second Secret City Trails experience and this time we placed 29th with a time of just over two hours, for which we are blaming the -2 temperature. It was also trickier than the other one and we were less familiar with the city but pah, excuses, we're fine with it, really. No, really, we are. Stop asking about it. Go away.Read more

    Fife, Andy and Andy

    January 3 in Slovakia ⋅ ☁️ -2 °C

    At Baudelaire bar, which, quietly, I chose, and was well timed defrosting, Rich discovered an excellent drink so we've nicked the recipe and intend to recreate it, with raspberry instead of mango as that's what they did now, to his delight.

    We've just booked a post-communist tour for tomorrow using the Christmas money Mark gave us (and Jo - I bought a lovely cashmere scarf today, finally, thank you!!), so looking forward to that, hurrah.

    Not that we're big on chatting to people at the best of times, but we ended up talking to a gorgeous Irish couple, Andrietta and Andy, at Baudelaire for about an hour, and could have stayed longer - they've got kids about our age and we ended up swapping emails in case we ever visit each other's countries and need some tips.

    Post-Communist Tour

    January 4 in Slovakia ⋅ ☁️ 5 °C

    Got in a man's old, rusty van with strangers.

    Was a great tour. Got the rundown of Slovakian history from the occupation in WWII, liberation by the USSR, and the subsequent communist Czechoslovakia up until 1989.

    Highlights: the old radio/tv building (upside-down pyramid), memorial to Soviet soldiers that liberated Slovakia (mass graves and monument), and the Iron Curtain and remaining outpost bunkers.Read more

    Cat cafe #2 - Mačkafé Klub

    January 4 in Slovakia ⋅ ☁️ 4 °C

    Treated ourselves with another cat cafe to escape the cold. Just down the hill from the city castle.

    Have never seen so many people in a cat cafe before, particularly grabby children (Lex's mates).

    Some good looking cats around with one inquisitive enough to come and have a crack at someone's hot chocolate.Read more
