My publisher (Tu Books) asked me to write a brief travel guide to Slovakia a few weeks ago. I was more than happy to comply, although there was too much material to cover in a brief post. I mean, this is Slovakia here. A paragraph or two wasn't going to cut it.
So it turned into a two parter, and I restricted it to just Western Slovakia. Check it out here:
And really--if you haven't been to Slovakia, you're totally missing out. I've been to France, England, Germany, Austria, Ireland, the Czech Republic--Slovakia can compete with any of them, and it's less-well known. If you want to get in on the cool before it becomes cool, now is your chance to go. And did I mention it's less expensive than the rest of Europe?
