Bratislava – Day 3

This one is obviously a little bit late but you know, life gets in the way / i’m lazy.

The final full day included a visit to Devín Castle which was used as a border for the iron curtain until 1989 and blown up by Napoleon’s army back when he was alive.

Playing dress up would be fun!

The last place to visit in Bratislava is the Slavin war memorial which is dedicated to the Red Army who fought and won control of the city during the final weeks of the Second World War. Nearly 7,000 soldiers are buried here and their names are commemorated as the heroes they truly are.

I never thought about going to Bratislava but i’m glad I did. 3 days is enough to see nearly everything that the city has to offer. If you like communist looking cities, cheap booze then this is the place for you. Also, there are loads of strip clubs so if you’re thinking of a stag weekend then you’re likely to be in for a treat. Thanks to my partner in crime Siobhan Allen for guiding me as I couldn’t be bothered to do that either. What? I’ve been travelling on my own and it’s nice for someone else to do all the planning/work haha. Till my next adventure!


Bratislava – Day 1 (Oh yeah, I’m back)

I’ve flown a lot (that’s not a brag) and I’m still terrified of turbulence. I know I’ll be ok but it’s hard when you’re not in control. Anyway enough of that, you may notice that I’m finally updating this site and it’s not because I had a notice that my yearly renewal was up so figured I should use this site again as I’m finally leaving England for a few days to Bratislava, Slovakia. What’s there? I don’t actually know, I’ve done little to no research for it but I know that I’m going to eat some European food and look at some pretty buildings and views.

I’m quite good at packing now and fit everything I need for the next few days in one bag. Evidence:

I’ve got the essentials of multiple t-shirts, you know what..I’m not going to list it because it’s boring haha. Just think about what you’d take on holiday and I’ve probably got it (You can make your own jokes here). 

After a long arduous journey where my SatNav decided to drive through central London I made it to the airport as shown in evidence B:

Slovakia is one of those European countries that not a lot of people know about including one George W Bush who got the country confused with Slovenia. It’s also being called a Mini-Prague which the next few photos will attest to:

This was number 1 on the most instagram-able places in the city so of course your boy got a photo outside of it.

Rooftop bar with a definitely nice view. My drink was sort of fancy tea mixed with apple and honey.

First proper meal here and you bet I’m going to eat sushi.

What will tomorrow bring? 30+ degrees weather with a dash of the occasion rain. They have a McDonalds that serves a burger between two rice cakes, I’m in.
