    Kosice

    October 21 in Slovakia

    Da das Wetter weiter südlich eine bessere Prognose hatte, ging es durch die wunderschönen Herbstwälder erst mal zum Gejsir nach Herlany. Wir konnten aber nicht herausfinden ob er vielleicht gerade Winterschlaf machte und da er wohl nur alle 32-36 Stunden "ausbrechen" soll, hatten wir keine Lust auf den richtigen Zeitpunkt zu warten. Also ging es weiter nach Kosice das unweit der ungarischen Grenze liegt. Ein wirklich nettes Städtchen, mit viel sehenswerten Bauwerken und einem mächtigen Dom an dem 130 Jahre gebaut wurde, bis er fertiggestellt war.Read more

    Kosice

    August 23 in Slovakia

    I originally had plans to spend two days hiking in the Tatras, but the next day I was hobbling around like a geriatric and the one flight of stairs in my hotel were bringing me to tears as my foot and joints remonstrated me for pushing them to their breaking point. So. Cutting my losses I decided I might as well push on and decamped to Kosice.

    Kosice is the second largest city in Slovakia, but with only 250,000 people this isn’t saying much. It is, however, an undeniably beautiful city with one of the broadest pedestrianised boulevards I have ever seen running through the middle of it, complete with a cute little stream running down the centre of it leading to the largest cathedral in Slovakia, also the most eastern gothic cathedral in europe.

    I spent 3 days there in total not doing much, partly due to the lack of things to do and also taking the opportunity to relax and recharge and letting my aching body recover. I spent most of my time hanging out in the many very cool coffee shops on the main drag doing some planning for my remaining 2 weeks and connecting with the local cafe culture.

    The cafe culture in Eastern Europe is surprisingly strong, this is something that always surprises me, never fitting comfortably with my stereotypes. People sit out in cafes all day long, ensuring they are always packed. Starting with coffee in the morning and moving on to beer and wine in the afternoon, which is something I have always been only too happy to play along. After 2 days of doing little else, I felt like a new person, however, restless and ready to move on.

    Day 243: Working in Kosice

    October 15, 2017 in Slovakia

    Feeling a bit better today, but decided to use one of our spare days today for staying in and recovering. Shandos went out and about for a bit doing various things, but I mostly stayed in and relaxed and worked. Got through a few videos, did some organising and research etc.

    In the evening we went out for dinner and drinks at a place on the nearby main square - good food and good drinks. I had a pork neck burger while Shandos had a risotto.Read more
