We're going gourmet this year: expect our output on where to eat/drink out to increase dramatically (quirky places only mind)! And because we like you to sleep well - and wackily: more features on some of Slovakia's more interesting hotels.
PLUS Lots of suggestions for getting out exploring a wilderness of mountains and forests.
AND what happens if you wake up one morning in London and decide, impromptu, to take the train all the way across the EU to Slovakia!

First, you have to imagine what a month or more of snow on the ground is like – easy enough for you Central and far-North Europeans but for the rest of us (me included until this January-February), not so easy. … Continue reading
It doesn’t sound a bad job, right? A lady who goes by the name of Emmy Eats… going around Europe, tasting all their different junk food… (how is she still so slim?) Well, Slovak sweets and snacks can throw up … Continue reading
