24 hours in Slovakia

Just a few hours from Vienna and we reach Slovakia, met by the soviet concrete urban sprawl of Bratislava. Looks from the outside are deceiving though, as once we were inside the city we found the beautiful, bustling old town. Five pints later, still in our sweaty cycling clothes, very tired and hungry, we realised we weren’t going to be able to keep up with our very friendly but energetic host, so made our excuses and went in search of a hostel late at night. The next day’s ride should have been short, but our route was a little more complicated than we had expected. Luckily we made it over the border into Hungary to find somewhere camp just before dark – country number 8!
