Slovakia Update #111 – Spring!

I love the fact that spring is here. You look around, everything is green and flourishing. The earth is happy and ready to party for the next 4~6 months. I took advantage of that today and decided to get a pair of inline skates and ride…

Slovakia Update #110 – Books

Today I want to talk about my mass consumption of literature over the past few months. After about three months, I noticed that I had come down with a terrible disease, known as boredom. This disease is not curable, but it is possible to delay the…

Slovakia Update #105 – Day Trip to Bešeňová

Although I can’t call myself a connoisseur of water parks worldwide, I can note some very interesting differences between Slovak waterparks and Californian water parks. They both have their different perks, and both being aimed towards different audiences. We began our day in the early morning,…

Slovakia Update #104 – Košice Day Trip

Slovakia Update #99 – General Update
