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!

For a good six months of the year, the snow piles so high against the timber walls of Horský Hotel Popradské Pleso that it rather resembles a giant igloo than a mountain lodge. Abutting the rugged lakeshore of Popradské Pleso, this hotel … Continue reading
