A Week in the Tatras

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

It's too hard to choose from so many. I became utterly enamoured with Slovakia's culture; the food, drink, music, clothing and folklore are so charming... though I was particularly inspired by our leader's recounting of the events of the "velvet revolution", wherein the Slovakian people overthrew their corrupt government in a totally peaceful manner, without no bloodshed at all.

What did you think of your group leader?

Peter is a consummate professional; he is charming and kind, his organisational skills are above fault, his passion for local customs and culture is infectious, and his competence is absolutely evident in every facet of the trip. He is an excellent group leader.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Make sure you're dressed for the cold, and in moderately good shape. And bring a camera!
