Where I stayed
The bus tour was really great! It was a full day trip to Austria! Our first stop was the Seegrotte which is a huge mine that accidentally flooded creating Europe's largest underground lake. During WWII it was also the place the German's used to secretly build and hide the world's first jet fighter. They still had some of the original parts on display! That was cool. After checking out the mine, we headed to Laxenburg Castle to spend the afternoon having lunch and exploring. They have these great electric boats you can rent and drive around the huge man-made lake built to protect the castle
On another great sightseeing adventure, Anna and I set off to find this really cool remote castle. Again I'm so glad I had my GPS iPhone App because I would've gotten lost for sure. When we finally arrived, I went in to purchase tickets for the tour and as I walked through the door I heard Guns & Roses blasting really loud from the computer at the ticket desk. Turns out the really cute blond ticket girl loves rock and was jamming out to GnR! You just never know what you'll find in the middle of nowhere Slovakia. The tour was great but the picture police were out in force so I was only allowed to take photos in certain areas including the cellars, which are the largest in Europe!
Both of these trips were really great and of course there is much more to see and do here in Slovakia, but I just don't have the time……
