    Where to next?

    June 10, 2017 in Slovakia

    Well my intention was to go Ceske Budovice today but by the time I got to Katowice from Wroclaw and found out the train was 7.5 hours (had to double back and go through Prague) I decided not too. My decision was to go back to the homeland for my final two weeks. I really loved Wroclaw. After having problems with my credit card at the train station, I caught a train to Zilina and once there caught a train to Blava. I had to withdraw money from the debit machine which I don't like to do because of the crappy exchange rate. I spent the train trip in the restaurant train having dinner and enjoying the ride away from all the travelling kids. I booked into a botel in town for the night because I wanted to spend the day in the city tomorrow. It's going to be hot here for the next three days. I'm going to sit in the river bank and read my book tomorrow.Read more

    Unexpected Slovakia Sailing by Night!

    October 2, 2017 in Slovakia

    An unexpected extra country along the way... around 11pm we passed through Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. We all traipsed out to the front of the boat briefly to see the lights of the city and snap a couple photos. We can (sort of) say we were in Slovakia too along there were no stops there.

    Beautiful Bratislava

    May 21, 2015 in Slovakia

    We did a quick bus tour of Bratislava this morning, and finished it with a walk through the old fortress and the downtown area. The Czech Republic is really trying hard to make self government work. Katerina our guide had a wonderful wit, and was frank, humorous yet cynical about the ability of government (any government) to fulfill its promises. From noon until 1:30 pm I had a long talk with John and Dawn from Canada. He enjoys photography, and is finding great satisfaction in his church. It has a Mennonite heritage, but a contemporary format.Read more

    Bratislova, Slovakia

    July 10, 2016 in Slovakia

    Even today, it seems the locals keep a watch over their shoulder and won't do anything to catch the attention of corrupt police. They remain affected by both communist and Russian rule last century. Slovaks are quite different to their Czech neighbours and pleased to be separated now. However, they're very proud Bratislava is the EU capital city right now.Read more
