TATRA WINTER ACTIVITY WEEK
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
I really loved the dog sledding because the huskys are such a friendly breed. That morning flew by it was just not long enough. I would have liked to have spent the whole day at this activity but not at the expence of the thermal baths which were lovely and relaxing. As a group we had some good laughs, my funniest moment was when I took off my snow shoes and tried to walk disappearing up to my thighs in the snow I just couldnt stop laughing. This was captured on camera by the rest of the group. I thoroughly enjoyed every day and every activity although my muscles might have told a different story!!
What did you think of your group leader?
Erik was our group leader and he was second to none. A great guy very helpful, pleasant and fun and nothing was too much trouble. He even carried my equipment when I was struggling and gave me a lift when it was very icy. He also managed to arrange a massage for me at the pension which was really good and set me up for the next days activity. I would definately consider another tour with Erik as leader.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
I would say that although the pension was clean. It definately was not 5 star! The beds were incredibly hard and pillows not much better. If you do not like light when trying to sleep take an eye mask as the room doors have a glass panel and a lot of them did not have curtains. I also found my ear plugs essential - I was not sharing so the things that went bump in the night were not down to a room mate!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
What can I say - I had a wonderful time and wish I was back there now.
