A hike and lunch in Bratislava forest – Marilyn Oldman

Well, today we had a very nice walk in the forest for about three hours, the sun was shinning through the trees and there was that wonderful smell of fresh forest air and a slight breeze that was wafting the scent of the forest our way. There were families out with their children and dogs and it seemed  like a very popular spot.

Then at about 1.30, the sky started to change from blue to grey and then from grey to dark grey and then black and we all know what happened next.

As it is Alf’s birthday today, we thought it would be a good opportunity on a wet day to have a nice lunch and wait for the rain to stop. We don’t only eat lunch on Alf’s birthday :). We went into a traditional Slovak mountain ski lodge that turned out to be a really good restaurant and had an excellent meal, with some suitable refreshment for Alf’s birthday.

After the rain had stopped, we got on the trolley-bus back to the town centre and the short walk to our hotel. By this time the temperature had dropped about ten degrees, we got off  the bus to walk the rest of the journey and  we could see local people looking at Alf in amazement – he was wearing shorts and a t/shirt and you could hear them thinking “another mad Englishman!”.
