    Roadtrip

    May 15, 2017 in Slovakia

    Today's roadtrip was through the Orava country side. We travelled over 250 km through Dolby Kubin, Trchova, Namestovo and Liptovsky Mikulas. We went to a remote village where the village people set up a mill in a valley to accommodate both valleys. The road was very ragged and one school was three km away. The mill is being restored and was incredible to see the joinery involved in the operation of the mill. There were free range goats and chickens on the property. We stopped off at one of Marienka's friends for a glass of wine and then headed to Turcianske Teplice. This is another spa town with healing waters for gastrointestinal problems. I drank a glass of the stinky sulphur water to keep myself healthy.Read more

    Harmaneska Jaskyna (cave)

    May 16, 2017 in Slovakia

    Headed out for a walking tour up 1.5km to Harmaneska Jaskyna. The stallogmite cave was discovered in 1932. We traversed through the cave for 45 minutes and travelled down 850 metres. The air was incredible in the cave. Our guide cut the lights at one point of the tour to show how dark it was for the miners when the tunnelled through and their lamps went out. Some interesting rock formations were a lions head, witches face, three wise men and the Empire State Building.Read more

    Pavlík při sestupu ztratil foťák, to nám trochu zkazilo náladu. V Lipt.Mikuláši jsme proto zašli do bistra zapít žal vínem. Naštěstí dobří lidé ještě žijí a tak se nám foťák po dvou dnech vrátil zpět. Navíc se nám nálezci zvěčnili do foťáku, tak na ně nikdy nezapomeneme (foto 2).
