    • 024 Von Podersdorf nach Samorin

      August 20, 2022 in Slovakia ⋅ 🌧 23 °C

      Lido de Jeselo am Neusiedlersee, so könnt man meinen. Heute radeln wir erst an einem Windpark vorbei, so viele Windräder habe ich auf einmal noch nie gesehen.
      In Kittsee haben wir in einer Buschenschenke Mittagspause gemacht. Kurz durch Bratislava durch und weiter geht's wieder an der Donau entlang. Auserdem kommen wir in Land Nr.4 an, die Slowakei. Tagesetappe waren 80km. Am Ende müssen wir noch eine Umleitung nehmen wegen einem Triathlon. Fernsehen und Hubschrauber alles war da. Aber nicht wegen uns.😏Read more

      Danubiana, Teil 2

      September 13, 2022 in Slovakia ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

      Auch der Außenbereich und das Dach sind mit Kunstwerken voll.

      Und auch das Café hat etwas zu bieten.

      In unmittelbarer Nähe ist ein Stellplatz, wo wir übernachten, wobei wir vorher noch ein Bad in der Donau nehmen.Read more

      Trnava

      June 10, 2023 in Slovakia ⋅ ☁️ 22 °C

      Heute morgen ging es vom Campingplatz weiter nach Trnava. Trnava, zu deutsch Tyrnau, ist eine Stadt mit 64.735 Einwohnern im Westen der Slowakei nordöstlich der Hauptstadt Bratislava.

      Unser Hauptziel war aber nicht die Stadt selbst, sondern ein dort befindlicher - mittlerweile selten gewordener - Webcam-Cache.

      Einige Virtuelle und Labs wurden als Beifang natürlich auch noch mitgenommen.

      Die Stadt selbst ist aber auch sehr schön. 😁

      Tree fell on our train to Esztergom

      October 20, 2023 in Slovakia ⋅ 🌬 24 °C

      Ruby had a very hard time finding the most direct way to Eztergom and one with the least transfers. She was met with Hungarian websites, no translations, train runs that are there one minute and the gone the next. This was further complicated by track works happening in the area.
      She finally found the most direct from Vienna through Breclav in Czech Republic to Sturovo in Slovakia, then a taxi to Esztergom in Hungary; we will be in 4 countries during this journey. Sturovo is just across the Danube River from Esztergom, about 8.5km from our accommodation.
      Got in our train in Vienna to Breclav without a hitch. Found extra Czech money in Ruby's wallet which was handy, so we had quite a feed in Breclav cafe of sandwiches, cakes and ice-cream. Even got takeaway cakes as there was money left over.
      Caught the connecting train at 1213pm which took a detour as there were works done on the tracks. So a slight delay was announced. 2hrs into our train ride, the train came to an abrupt halt in the forest, in the middle of nowhere because a tree fell on our train. All announcements we're in Czech and the lovely young lady sitting behind us translated. We have been stopped here for an hour, twenty three mins and counting....

      When stuck on a train, one needs to eat cake.....

      After 2½hrs, rescue train is here....

      After 3½hrs, we're still here. Fortunately we not in need of emergency rescue.

      3 hours and 50 mins and we are GO!

      We finally arrived at train station destination at 7.30pm. Next challenge was getting off the platform to the station side and onto the road to catch a taxi. The was no lift to go down the stairs. So we heaved the suitcases down the stairs only to find it went to platforms. Heaved suitcases back up the stairs as we saw an overhead bridge. Dragged suitcases to the overhead bridge which on closer inspection led to further darkness. Fortunately a guy came down the bridge and we gesticulated getting to the office. He gesticulated back to go downstairs and around the corner. More heaving and puffing later, we were out of the station.

      Our walking tour guide in Prague warned us to not catch taxis from train stations but to call one from Uber or Bolt. He gave us graphic details from bad experiences of people on his tours that scored into our memory. Scary. However, those services are not available in this area. With that severe warning in mind, we were rather worried about shonky taxi drivers or even finding one in the small town of Sturovo, Slovakia to take us across the bridge to Esztergom, Hungary although it was only a 10 minutes drive. There were 2 taxis outside the station. The first taxi driver didn't want to know us and our English. In a feeble effort to look like we knew what we were doing, Grace has the address and route on Google map to show the driver. The second driver looked like a Mafia muscleman and had a very old taxi. He looked up our apartment address on Google map ( exactly what was in Grace's phone), showed us the route and time it'd take, helped us with our luggage, and most importantly, put the meter on before driving away. We were so relieved that he was so honest we gave him a big tip and thanked him profusely. It was instant noodles for dinner.

      An observation in Breclav, there must be lots of cyclists in Breclav because they have a multistorey parking for bicycles here.

      Walked only 4.2km, but sat for hours and hours and hours....

      Étape 24 (Olivier) : Sturovo - Soprona

      June 12, 2022 in Slovakia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

      Distance : 99 km
      Dénivelé : 260 D+
      Temps de parcours : 3h30
      Tracé GPS : https://strava.app.link/TISpfC9Y2qb

      Les prix de l'auberge où je souhaite me rendre à Bratislava sont deux fois plus élevés le dimanche soir que le lundi soir, je décide donc d'y aller en deux jours. J'appelle Hubert, un copain marié avec une slovaque, pour avoir des bons plans sur la Slovaquie et faire mes plans de route pour la suite de Bratislava. Il me met en garde sur les campings sauvages à ne surtout pas faire dû aux nombreux ours ainsi qu'à la conduite très dangereuse des locaux.

      Je confirme à 1000% le deuxième avertissement lors de cette première étape slovaque. Ce sont 100 km sur des grandes lignes droites où les voitures roulent relativement vite. Sur le bord de la route je vois beaucoup de tombes au bord de la route qui signifient qu'une personne est morte sur la route. Il n'existe pas de petite route ici et sur les grandes routes il n'y a pas d'espace pour les vélos. Une étape qui est donc peu intéressante et je suis content d'arriver me baigner dans un lac le soir avant de rencontrer Jan et sa famille chez qui je dormirai.

      C'est la première rencontre Slovaque et Jan est content de trouver un cycliste, il est partant pour aller à son boulot le lendemain en vélo avec moi.

      Donauinsel in der Slowakei

      June 4, 2022 in Slovakia ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

      Nach einem langen Fahrtag, an dem es von Augsburg über München und Branau (wegen dem Pfingstreiseverkehrs) an Wien und Bratislava vorbei ging, erreichten wir auf einer Donauinsel unseren Standplatz für die heutige Nacht. Nach einer Gulaschsuppe und einem Bier betteten wir uns in unserem 3,5 Tonnen Integral-Wohnmobil.Read more

      May 7 in Slovakia ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

      in der Früh als erstes eine Dämpferwartung machen lassen müssen, danach ging es auf den 003 kleine Karpaten »Radweg«, primär bestehend aus mittelstark befahrenen und sehr hügeligen Landstraßen. Zwischendrin hat es auch noch angefangen zu regnen. Dadurch heute kaum Strecke geschafft. Erst am Abend nach einer reichlichen Stärkung in Vrbové ging es wieder.Read more

      Transfer Day

      July 24, 2018 in Slovakia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

      We are on our way from Olomouc to Bratislava today. We checked out of the Clarion Congress Hotel at 10.00 and we are due into Bratislava at about 13.30.

      We stopped at a service station and whilst most students went to the loo and bought some lunch, there was a contingent who chose to entertain themselves during the break in different ways...

      ...they kept it going for practically the entire 30-minute stop which is something - exactly what I'm not sure?!?! It made everyone laugh though!

      Schleuse Gabcikowa

      November 5, 2022 in Slovakia ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C

      Die große Schleuse für 4 Kreuzfahrtschiffe ist ein ungarisch slowakisches Projekt . Es ist ein Kraftwerk angeschlossen das 10% der slowakischen Energie erzeugt. An der Schleuse warteten wir 2 Stunden, sodass es wieder finster ist. Das Schleusen selbst in 20 m Höhe dauert 30 Minuten.Read more

      MCB and Zinnia Quartets

      July 23, 2018 in Slovakia ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

      Before the concert this evening there was an opportunity for two of our string quartets to perform as the audience arrived at the church. There was a steady stream of locals who stopped to have a listen,and both groups did a sterling job! The Zinnia quartet played Por Una Cabeza by Gardel and the MCB quartet played a movement from Dvorak's American Quartet.Read more
