Urban girl goes to spend a few days "in the nature" as Hungarians would say. :)

If you plan to travel in Central-Eastern Europe, by train is definitely the best. You can sit back and relax in the dining car and watch the scenery go by as you're waiting for your lunch... Great!

For avid stargazers the totally light-pollution free sky was amazing in the mountains. We had different entertainment the second night with the arrival of the longest storm I've ever experienced, watching sheet lightning fill the sky over and over again, and casting an electric blue light over the mountain range.
We rented a cottage in Terchová, a village which hosted the World Potato Dumplings Championships this weekend. Before you ask, that's not why we went there in the first place, but it was definitely a great occasion to get more familiar with local peculiarities. Apart from "halusky" (potato dumplings with ewe-cheese, yummy!) cooking championships, they also had sour milk-drinking (I wonder who came up with this and how many very sick contestants cursed them that evening), and speed eating of "halusky" as well.
We had a great time with our friends, and had great conversations - if you're reading this, thank you for organising it all! :)
|How wonderful is the local folk costume?|

Let me raise a glass to you, Dear Reader, for bearing with me while I recounted my weekend, I shall return soon with an outfit post, not to worry! :)
|Kofola, a great soft drink resembling Coke, but less sweet and more spicy!|
