      Tatra

      August 20, 2021 in Slovakia ⋅ ☁️ 21 °C

      Weiter ging es durch die Tatra in die Slowakei. Und wie es der „Zufall“ so wollte, sind wir an einer Pivovar vorbeigekommen. 😉 Natürlich konnten wir da nicht einfach so vorbeifahren. Und ein wenig Natur gab es natürlich auch noch um uns herum.Read more

      Stage 2 Moravie - Lage Tatra (SK) 229 km

      August 20, 2021 in Slovakia ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

      Vanuit Olomouc in Moravië (CZ) zijn we vandaag in oostelijke richting naar de Slowaakse Grens gereden. Vanaf daar zijn we in zuidoostelijke richting vanuit het noorden het Lage Tatra Gebergte in gereden. In het dorpje Vlkolinec, een historisch houten stadje dat op de Unesco erfgoed lijst staat was een weightpoint (dit keer niet gemist) met een special task.Read more

      Tatra Gebirge

      September 3, 2021 in Slovakia ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

      Yes, äntlich schöns Wätter und äntlich wieder Berge!
      Über d Nacht hemmer d Landesgränze id Solwakei passiert und Pole hinder eus lah. Zumindest so bizli. Eusäs Ziel sind d Tatra Gebierge gsi, welli halb zu Polen ghöred und halb zur Slowakei und da mir eus für en Gipfel entschiede hend wo d Wanderig i de Slowakei startet hämmer eus au gad dete es Schlafplätzli, gsuecht.

      Eusäs Ziel isch de Sivy vrch gsi uf 1805 Höhi.
      Dä Start wär ca. uf 1000 Meter gsi, wär… wänn mer nöd am morge entdeckt hettät das mir ime chline Skigebiet glandet sind und de Sässellift sogar im Summer fahrt.
      So hämmer eus dänn rächt gfreut das mer eus die erschte paar 100 Höhenmeter hend chönä spare!
      Schlussändlich ischs au bitter nötig gsi, ersch underwägs hämmer gmerkt, das mer bis zu eusem Ziel no 2 anderi Gipfel hend müsse passiere. Es isch es ufe und abe gsi, aber wunderschön! Ganz e spezielli vegetation, mängisch hesch dich im Regewald gefühlt, dänn wieder im Hochgebierge, nachher inere Wüeschti und und und…
      Leider hämmer uf em letschte Gipfel rächt schnäll wieder müesse de Rückweg in Ahgriff näh und de Michi het sich scho wieder müsse vo sim neue Kolleg verabschiede (siehe Video;-))
      Irgendwo hemmer ebe gläse, das s letschte Bähnli am 5i fahrt und da mir wieder alles hend müesse zrugg wandere, simmer es bizli in Stress cho.
      Mer sind aber so tifig gsi, das mer bereits am viertelab 4i bim Bähnli ahcho sind. Chum ahcho, het eus denn aber de Bahnmitarbeiter gfröget öb mir no abe welled, sie seged am zue mache… so hemmer doch no riese Glück gha!
      Mer sind eus bis hüt nöd sicher wielang de Sässel het söllä laufe, Google Rezessione säged, es chöngis scho mal gäh, das sie d Öffnigsziite nöd ihhaltet…. Danke für dä 😉

      (Fotis: Wanderig😍)

      Memo a ois:
      - Wanderprofis simmer immer noni und hend wieder mal s Ersatz Shirt vergässe
      - defür Hauptsach immer zviel Jaggene debii
      - de Michi het sogar Blüemli & Pilz ahgfange Fötele (das spricht für d Wanderig)

      Čierny Váh Blick

      June 26 in Slovakia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

      Heute sind wir recht schnell, wenn auch nicht weit gekommen. Ein kurzer Stopp in Poprad zum Einkaufen und dann auf die Piste. Nördlich um den See Váh bis zu dem Stellplatz etwas oberhalb. Der See ist Teil eines Wasserkraftwerks, das Kraftwerk ist seiner Leistung nach das größte Wasserkraftwerk der Slowakei.

      Hier angekommen sind wir noch runter an den See, dass Wetter droht aber umzuschlagen, so dass wir nur die Füße ins Wasser gehalten haben.

      Cicmany & Fackov

      December 19, 2019 in Slovakia ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C

      Dale picked up the hired van to fit everyone in and we drove about 1 hour away to a small village filled with wooden houses decorated with patterns and symbols on the walls.
      We then continued on to Fackov where we had a traditional Slovak lunch of Bryndza cheese on fresh sourdough - yum!
      In the late afternoon Dale took us to the climbing centre close by that they go to and showed Guy how to climb the wall. Patrik and I watched on.
      In the evening we walked around the small Christmas market and enjoyed the music of a band of Slovak group who played cimbal and violin.

      Zakamenné

      December 21, 2019 in Slovakia ⋅ ☁️ 9 °C

      We headed out of the town of Povazska with the van packed with everything needed for the weekend and our first stop was the Slovak astronomical clock located in the village Stará Bystrica which is the biggest wooden sculpture in Slovakia, according to village information. It originated in 2009 with Slovak sculptor Viliam Loviška. We also stopped and had the lunch special at a local restaurant (pork tenderloin with postmarked and mushroom sauce) which cost about 20€ in total for everyone.

      We drove on into the mountains with a quick stop to take in the amazing views. We arrived at the home of Marta’s mother and dropped of her and the boys and then continued on to the Museum of the Orava Village, 3 kilometres away from Zuberec, at Brestová, a unique open-air museum of the Orava Village where we spent about 1 hour. Over an area of about 20 hectares is a village containing the typical folk buildings moved here from various regions of Orava.

      We enjoyed meeting Marta’s extended family over a coffee and some korbàčik (a type of string cheese). Our accommodation for the next two nights is a small but very nice B & B sort of place.

      Orava Castle

      December 21, 2019 in Slovakia ⋅ ☁️ 9 °C

      Visited Orava Castle this morning. We were first in line for a guided tour (1 hour) and were lucky enough to have a guide who spoke English. Also in our small group was a family from Perth. Orava Castle is situated on a high rock above Orava river in the village of Oravský Podzámok, Slovakia. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful castles in Slovakia. We had good weather in the morning but by the afternoon it was raining.Read more

      Next country - Slovakia

      June 28, 2020 in Slovakia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

      Our route started with a pretty steep climb: 450m of elevation gain within the first 10km. However, it was a remote forest road, the locals had drawn beer signs on the road for motivation and the view on top made up for the effort! We were in a little ski resort with cute wooden apartment houses and hotels.
      This was also the point where we crossed to Slovakia - our first time in this country! After the climb, we were treated with a super nice 23km downhill ride on a paved forest road along a little stream. It ended at a canal which we followed until we reached Zilina. Here we stopped for lunch in the historical old town.
      From Zilina, it wasn't too far to our campsite anymore. 10km along the canal again with tailwinds and another 10km on a busy road into a smaller valley. We went quite fast, as the Slovakian drivers are as crazy as the Czech drivers, so it wasn't too much fun.
      When we reached the campground, we went for a bath in the cold river to relax our tired muscles.

      Thunderstorm hopping

      June 29, 2020 in Slovakia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

      The weather forecast showed some rain and thunderstorms for today, so we got up early to start our ride. We climbed our first hill right at the beginning, went down again on the other side - and had to look for shelter for the first time. It rained heavily, but only for about 15 minutes, so we could continue.
      It was dry for the next 3 hours, so we climbed up the next pass. The bike path was really nice: no cars, green, quiet, so we really enjoyed this part of today's route.
      Then we saw the next thunderstorm chasing us from behind. We cycled as fast as possible on a busy road around a lake and found shelter again when the storm was very close. We could see the rain only a couple of hundred meters away, but it didn't hit us.
      However, we knew we only had about 45min until the next bigger storm, so we had to speed up. We were lucky again! We just reached our guesthouse before it started to rain for the rest of the evening. Glad we decided to exchange our tent with a dry bed tonight 😉
