The hostel I stayed in appeared to be a cool place to hang out but seeing as the door to our room did not have a separate lock to the landing area, we had very unwelcome idiots come into our room at some ridiculous time in the morning giggling like a couple of teenagers. Eventually someone got angry at them and chased them out. I was not in the mood for it myself feeling some what like keeping a low profile in my state of ill health and also in my night gown. I totally enjoyed my stay in Bratislava and I must say that the credit all goes to Martina!
14 EUR train got me from Vien to Bratislava. In Bratislava I met with my friend Martina who I had met in Malaga and I had a great time being treated to the sights and tastes of the city. We wandered through the old town and up to the old palace which is under renovations, the old town is small but sweet. Martina took me to a Vegetarian cafeteria and later we had a hot chocolate which had bits of fruit in it and extremely thick and rich. The best thing ever! Later she drove me to Devin the junction of the rivers Morava and Danube where Slovakia and Austria meet. There are old ruins from the Castle Devin as well as some sad stories from history. Later, after checking out the new national theatre precinct, we headed to Martina's favourite restaurant near her home which was a drive away but well worth it as it's the best Italian I have had, that I can actually remember, we had soup and then pasta dishes.
