I was skeptical at first but after checking in I realized that this place was awesome! Nice clean room, free WiFi internet, and a free breakfast buffet, all with a great view of the river and within walking distance to downtown Bratislava. And for $33/night you can't beat it.
They had a bar and restaurant on the boat, so since I was exhausted from traveling all day I just decided to lay low and grab a bite to eat there. Little did I know that I had stumbled upon the ONLY INDIAN RESTAURANT in Bratislava. I love Indian food! But again I was skeptical. After all, how good could an Indian restaurant in the middle of nowhere Slovakia be? It turns out, REALLY GOOD! And cheap too!

... of sodas... whenever I travel somewhere I try to taste as many local sodas as I can. When I was in Cuba, a waiter told me as if it was a big secret thing: "I've got Coke", but I still wanted a TuKola, as it's something I can't drink elsewhere.
Ok, so after the ads break, I went to the appartment and stayed there for a while. Then, my host told me how to get to the train station, my idea was to go walking, but as it was raining and the station was ...
We crossed the bridge and entered the old town. Had a spot of bother attempting to find our street, so,we did the next best thing - off to the Info Centre. Followed the signs through cobblestoned streets past beautiful old buildings - delightful. We had been within about 200m of our hotel before we headed off to the info centre. So backtracked and found it easily.
The hotel has been recently renovated. It has ...
... while Dad and Dan had chicken caesar. The bagels came out in little individual bags and toasty warm. They were very yummy.
After a quick look at the weather forecast and being told there was a 90% chance of snow at 1pm and 100% chance at 2pm we decided that the bus tour of old town was probably better then the 2pm walking tour.
The bus was supposed to pick up from the main square ever half an hour. So we waited in the cold and rain for almost an hour awaiting said bus. ...
... the captain points out certain features along the way, when you cross over the Slovakian border back into Austria etc. So all in all it was a cute little trip and well worthwhile if you want to experience two cities in two different countries. But our midweek break has come to an end and we are now sat on the train back to Salzburg, then on to Prien am Chiemsee. But Slovakia makes it country number 6 on our European journey. Who knows where will be next! Alleys gute, ...
So my next to last day in Vienna I bought boat tickets for a trip across the Danube, to Bratislava, Slovakia. Did I do this to add another country to my travel blog? Maybe. But still, Bratislava was very nice, someone described it as a 'small Vienna', and I can see what they mean. The entire city is walkable without the need of public transportation. Right away I ran into ‘Cumil’, one of the ...
