    Hohe Tatra

    August 22, 2019 in Slovakia ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    kleinstes Hochgebirge Europas (gelegen an der polnisch/slowakischen Grenze)..Leider war das Wetter nicht so toll (14°).
    Wir wollten eigentlich die polnische Tatra erwandern aber schon der Ort Zakapone war derart überlaufen, dass wir gar nicht anhalten mochten. Auch die Wandererparkplätze waren brechend voll. So fuhren wir weiter in die slowakische Seite der Tatra, wo weniger los war. Dort froren wir ein bisschen in einer Karsthöhle und als wir wieder am Auto waren, ging die Schütterei los. Wir ärgerten uns etwas, weil wir so keinen schönen Tatrablick mitnehmen konnten und fuhren bei strömendem Wetter südlich Richting Budapest. Auf einem Campingplatz "Ostblockstyle" fanden wir Champignons, die die Ehre hatten, unser Abendbrot zu werden. Am Morgen erfuhren wir von 5 Toten und 100 Verletzten durch das Unwetter. Da sind wir gerade noch einmal mit dem Leben davongekommen.Read more

    Štrebské Pleso

    September 12 in Slovakia ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Mariano hurt his foot a bit on our hike yesterday. Since we want to be fit and ready for the more challenging hikes in the High Tatras mountains, we decided against a second day in Slovenský Raj and instead took a chill day at the lake (actually also part of the High Tatras).Read more

    Hike to Skalnaté Pleso and around

    September 14 in Slovakia ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    We hiked up to this (probably when full very pretty) lake which I believe in winter functions as one of the main aprés-ski spots. From there we still tried to hike up to the peak at Veľká Svišťovka, but didn't manage to since we had to be back in time for the cable car to Lomnický Štit (this was so far the only place where the information in our hiking map failed us: the hike was supposed to be just about one hour, but apparently it's rather 2.5 hours one-way).

    Day 16, Tatranska Lomnica - Slovakia

    August 22, 2019 in Slovakia ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Left Ustup after getting the chairlift up the mountain and walking over the top of the mountains, arriving in the Centre of Zakopane. Last chance to get a Lody before leaving Poland, so we did. Caught the bus back just at it started raining. Drove then over to Tatranska Lomnica in Slkvakia to our next site. Started to rain, it must have followed us !Read more

    Day 17, Tatra mountains and Spis Castle

    August 23, 2019 in Slovakia ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    A short drive from the campsite to the cable car, went up the chairlift and walked around at the station 3/4 of the way up, approx 2000 metres up. The left Tatranska Lomnica ( tatra mountains) and headed for Kosice, came across Spis Castle, apparently used in Game of thrones. Then continued onto Kosice.Read more

    Finishing the high Tatra half circle

    July 1 in Slovakia ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    The morning started with an enormous breakfast, sun and nice views of the Tatra mountains. What else could you wish for as a cyclist?
    We left our guesthouse and started into a great day of cycling. The first little path was a bit adventurous and we had to push the bikes through some muddy bits. Then we followed the main road along the mountain range and Tatra National Park. We were happy we were here on a weekday. I can imagine it's very busy with tourists on weekends.
    The road led back into Slovakia, went around the Tatra on the East side and then turned West along the South side of the Tatra. We had to climb a lot, but with a steady elevation gain and spectacular nature it felt really easy. Plus, we also had some nice downhills.
    As we had some time left in the afternoon, we decided to do a little detour to Lake Strbske Pleso which was the highest point of our Europe trip so far. From here, we only had to roll downhill to Svit where we were welcomed by Tom and Luba, our warmshowers hosts. They also had to cut their Panamericana trip short because of Covid, so we had lots to talk about.

    Slovensko

    July 19 in Slovakia ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

    Gehaald!! Nadat we de grens over zijn is de eerste indruk goed. Mooie landschappen... en grote wegen afgewisseld met kleine bergweggetjes.
    En even langs het Andy Warhol-museum. Zijn ouders komen uit Slowakije...Read more

    Cerveny Klastor

    October 2, 2019 in Slovakia ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Wir sind an der Dunajec auf der slowakischen Seite des Flusses. Hier ist ein CP, der zum Restaurant gehört. Und wir stehen hier alleine am Fluss. Das Wetter hat noch einmal mitgespielt und wir haben bei knapp 20 Grad eine 10 km Flussfahrt durch den Nationalpark gemacht. Das war einfach nur wunderbar und bisherige Höhepunkt der Reise. Die Herbstfärbung hätte nicht schöner sein könnenRead more

    Camping im slovakischen Paradies

    September 14, 2019 in Slovakia ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Campingplatz vor den Toren des slovakischen Paradieses. Es ist Wochenenden und schönes Wetter, dies zieht natürlich viele Touristen an und auch die einheimischen nutzen diese Gelegenheit...der Platz ist relativ "voll".
    Dafür gibt es eine wunderbare Aussicht auf die berege der hohen Tatra und auf die morgige Wanderung in dieser tollen Gegend.
