Ive been checking out Bratislava for a few days now and its a pretty sweet place, i really dig it here. The old town center is packed with non stop little cafes and bars which are all uber trendy. Today im going up to the castle, its the big assed thing which looks down over the river danube, thats if I can make it up there… walking is a bit difficult right now…
Last night i went to a bar called the "Sub Club" upon Dieters recommendation and it was rockin, its in an old bombshelter, inside the mountain underneath the castle. I met this cool Slovakian bloke called Boris and started drinking with his friends and then we went to another bar and the shots kept coming… jesus… i totally forget the name of what we were having but it is traditional slovak stuff and not too bad… beside the obvious alcoholic effects. There was even some absinthe in there too, the good stuff, like the stuff they cant sell in the rest of europe… it stung on the way down but it was a smooth stinging feeling… if thats possible… not like the moonshine in romania which had a harsh, cutting stinging feeling to it. Together we drank to health, to Slovakia, to Australia, to Kangaroos, to it all. So i had a great night with my new friends, we went to go to another bar but the absynthe scooter got me and took me back to the hostel, god bless you absynthe scooter.
Tonight is some big party they have been organising with a DJ from london and all, so Im definitly off there… maybe less of that local drink and more dancing.
Slovakia is what most people think as "eastern" europe but its not that far out of the way, only 70km east of Vienna, which is literally the cultural capital of the world, even paris hilton says so, however unlike her my passport is in order. It just so happens they had some lowsy commies roll into this place at the end of the second war but check it out for yourself below, the marker is the net cafe im in now, just to the left is the castle and thats the danube under it. If you zoom out just a little the Austrian border is right there too, thats where im going on Saturday, sweet as bro
