    August 20 in Slovakia ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Ende unserer heutigen Etappe ist Košice. Eine wirklich tolle Stadt mit vielen tollen Cafés und Bars. Was natürlich auch nicht fehlen darf ist eine Pivovar 😂. Hier haben wir uns gut gestärkt und gleich ziehen wir weiter in die nächste Bar. Danach werden wir uns in unser „Zelt“ zurückziehen. Morgen geht es weiter Richtung Ungarn.Read more

    October 21, 2018 in Slovakia ⋅ 🌬 11 °C

    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

    August 23, 2018 in Slovakia ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    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.

    What a great looking plaza and I love the stream running down the middle.

    Another super pretty town - seems like there are a crazy number of beautiful towns and cities none of which I’ve even heard of!

    Zurück in der Slowakei stand Košice auf dem Programm. Es ist die zweitgrößte Stadt nach Bratislava. Sie besitzt das größte denkmalgeschützte Stadtgebiet im Land - und das ist wirklich sehenswert. Dabei sticht besonders der Elisabeth-Dom heraus, die größte Kirche hierzulande. Eine weitere Attraktion ist der Singende Brunnen. Dieser zaubert zu Takten bekannter Klassiker passende Wasserfontainen.Read more

    Day 243: Working in Kosice

    October 15, 2017 in Slovakia ⋅ 🌙 9 °C

    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.

    Pre vysvetlenie 2 marodi + 2 zatiaľ zdraví cestovatelia vyrážajú dnes vlakom smer Bratislava.

    Cca 5 dní späť Peťa zahlásila "mama mám soplík" čo spôsobilo u nás doma stresové situácie stihne - nestihne sa dať dokopy do nášho odchodu?
    Už to vieme - nestihla😭

    Dnešná Tomčova hláška - ja dnes ani zajtra nič nevypijem. Po včerajšej konzumácii rôznych "dobrôt" na návšteve košických vianočných trhov mu jeho žalúdok v noci nedal spinkať.

    Našťastie sme na takéto drobné komplikácie už zvyknutí.

    Konečne sme všetci vo vagone č. 4 a snažíme sa ubytovať v našom luxusnom kupé ktoré ako je zvykom musíme do rána kvalitne vybývať.

    PS. Som zvedavý ako Tomčo bez promile nasadené na lietadlo.
