When we finally found out what train we were catching we made our way to the platform. The ticket cost us 56aud for return trip for 2 x people, so very cheap. We were expecting to be sitting with the cattle and chickens but when we finally found our carriage it was very comfortable. Nice velvet type seats, clean, table between the seats for reading or playing cards.The trip took us about 2,3 hours and we saw a few ancient castles on the way sitting atop the mountains. Plenty of fields for farming and grazing. Finally arrived in Brataslava about 1615hrs and we decided to get a cab to our apartment.

There were alot of police around outside our building when we got there and it was then we learnt that our apartment was next door to the American Embassy here in Bratislava. Amazing, right in the middle of the old city, and only 50 euro for the night for both of us. It was comfortabke and no noise outside due to all the surrounding streets being blocked. Had a walk around the old city, went to a cafe for dinner, then back to apartment and off to bed. Dave went out again for another walk, got lost and returned a few hours later.
