    Strbske Pleso, Stary Smokevec

    April 4, 2017 in Slovakia

    Woke up this morning with horrible back and chest pain and had a hard time breathing. Aunt says its fresh air poisoning and I say it was having my backpack on for two hours in the same position. Don't know how I'm going to manage the hiking. Set out after breakfast for a 1km hike to the electric train. First stop was a transfer in Stary Smokovec and then on to Strbske Pleso. When we arrived at Strbske Pleso we did a simple hike around the lake which was only 2.25 km and manageable. The high Tatras were right above us and they were magnificent. We went down to Strba after by cable car which I've never been on so that was a neat experience. The cable cars have been running up to the mountains since 1896 and were beautiful. We had a coffee at the bottom and headed back up to the top again. Once up we headed by electric train to Stary Smokovec to get lunch and some food items. We couldn't find one restaurant that was open. We headed to Tatranska Lomnica for dinner at this point. The whole time we managed to bypass the rain storm that was passing through. We caught the bus back to our cabin and finally got caught in the thunder storm and pelting rain. Bought some topical tonic my grandmother used for pain relief made from herbs and doused myself in it to relief the pain and had an early night to bed.Read more

    Tatranska Lominca

    April 5, 2017 in Slovakia

    Feeling better today and after last nights storm the skies are blue. Walking trek to Tatranska Lomnica and wanted to head up the ski lift to the first trek point but the lifts were closed for maintenance. We walked a total of 6 slow kms today and I wanted to walk another 8 but aunt was complaining her toe nails were too long in her boots and she had to go back to the cabin to trim her nails. I had to choke back laughing this excuse. Once back at the cabin I cracked open my bottle of Rose and laid back in the sun to enjoy the warmth. Booked the train back to Bratislava for Friday ahead of time. Tomorrow I'm heading out hiking alone.Read more

    Walking trek to Stary Smokovec

    April 6, 2017 in Slovakia

    Drizzle this morning so we started with a trek alongside the river to the village if Stara Lesna. Came back for lunch and then walked to Stary Smokovec which was about 6 km. The weather cleared and it was beautiful. Took the electric train back and a good thing because it started to snow....and snow. My first sign of winter so far on my trip. Beautiful winter wonderland. Heading home tomorrow.

    Tatra Mountains getaway Day 1

    April 3, 2017 in Slovakia

    Left for the train early in the morning and when we got to the train station our train was delayed by 50 minutes. Had to stand for almost two hours as there are no benches at the station because of the drunks and Roma's
    at the station. Our trip was four and a half hours long but a beautiful trip because I got to see the northern villages in the way. Totally different from the city. When we got to Poprad-Tatry station Benzik picked us up and dropped us off at the cabin. He's a friend of Zdenko's and air traffic controller at the airport. The cabin is quaint and lovely and 30m from a creek. Went for a short walk and then unpacked our things. Tomorrow will be a hiking day.Read more
