SUNDAY MORNING IN ZVOLEN

Av EvaLena Hallgren - Söndag 24 juni 08:26

Around noon Mom decided her lungs needed a rest from all the exhaust fumes and cigarettes. (seems like everyone smokes here) and head north towards the Tatra Mountains.

We had a great stay at the campsite and the service was terrific. The girl at the gate spoke great English and loved me so much she could hardly keep her hands of me. She told me she too has a Shih Tzu

   

Driving through the city was a nightmare, and Mom missed Linneas instructions once so we were sent around a few narrow streets but eventually, we made it out of the city. It's very difficult to read street signs and Linnea are having difficulty to pronounce the names, can't say I blame her.

 


Driving north we're now leaving Hungary and entering Slovakia and this is how it looked at the border. We stopped and tried to figure out if we needed a toll ticket? not sure it's for big trucks only so Mom approached a police asking for help.

Not a chance she only got some barking back in a foreign language so what the heck. We have been driving on many roads without so I suppose we'll get the bill sent home later.

 

Driving along there's a lot of farmland on both sides especially gorgeous are the fields of sunroses.


 

the speed limit is mostly 90km (55miles), but through every village (and there's a lot of them) speed is lowered to 50km (30miles) 30 km (20miles) and most villages are so small that Mom just downshifted Lucy and got the speed down when it's time to step on the gas again. Keeps Mom awake ............Now we need EUros again so we stopped in a small village to find an ATM. many places do not take credit cards so we always have to keep cash on hand. We now have so many different currencies Mom is having difficulties keeping it all apart.

   

We finally stopped for the night in a town called Zvolen and it was a very nice peaceful night. I thought the best part was all the green grass to run on.

 


So today we'll continue North and we'll see what interesting sights Mom can find today. No big city ..............she promised..............at least not today.


all is well. Buttons

Sorry, there has been no updates for a few days, but we truly found a paradise where for me it means complete freedom to come and go as I please. First thing this morning I ran down to the dock at full speed, and then up the hill (which is really ste...

So we got on the ferry for a 4 hour crossing to the island. First, we found a very comfortable lounge chair where Mom thougt we could spend the evening on, but it got way to cold and windy.        Going inside to curl up in a chair was so muc...
