Okay, so I completely forgot about that book meme and the moment's kind of gone now.

Anyway. This time next week I will be in Bratislava! Or at least I hope to be in Bratislava, I fly into Vienna and have to get the train across, so I may get horribly lost and have to setup home.

If I find my way to Bratislava I am then meeting up with BTCV and hiking off into the remote Tatra Mountains - from which I am assured I will see bear, wolves, and a special species of goat that we have to track for 10 days.

I'm currently packing, which is usually a problematic process anyway, but this time I'm having to weigh myself and then weigh myself with my rucksack on and then pick an item to remove from the pack until I can get it down to 10kg. Reduce underwear or books, that's my current dilemma.

Any suggestions from the well-travelled amongst you as to what to visit in Bratislava? (few extra days before and after the trek).

Unfortunately my only experience in Bratislava was a 2 day stag do 7 years ago.

What I do remember is that it had a really nice old medieval core to the city that certainly deserved a day wandering around, but the outer suburbs were rather depressing East European 60s concrete (not the worst examples I've ever seen, but pretty close).

I'm surprisingly okay with East European concrete. There looks to be a promising castle as well!

Ah, there was a post - friendslocked because it mentioned people - and then deleted for reasons that are dull to explain.

It was excellent. Beautiful, energetic, fun. I thoroughly recommend it, especially the mountains.
