In the last 24 hours, I've traveled the entire width of Slovakia. My trip began on a four hour train ride that left from Bratislava, the nation's capital city that's situated on the far western end of the country.

They come long way, even only for a weekend, to breathe the fresh air and walk/hike/climb/sky in one of the most beautiful place in Poland. The mountain resort is only couple of hours from Cracow so if you ...
