Next stop on the big trip is Zdiar in the High Tatra mountains of Slovakia. There is a very nice little hostel in this town which got recommended by multiple other travellers. Turns out this town is a major snow-sport destination and I got in exactly while the snow was perfect! So after 3 hours in town I already had some skis rented and got to night skiing with some other guys.... The next days were pretty much filled by skiing and relaxing in the hostel.... not bad!!
The hostel was great fun, with a good group of other backpackers and random travelers, some good snowboarders, some not like me. Every night was a big party in the living room of the hostel which, just like the kitchen and other parts of the hostel, is entirely made of wood and just gives a great atmosphere. The hostel, called Ginger Monkey, also organized a pretty massive Australia day celebration including Australian food and live radio broadcasts from downunder - a good preparation for my trip there!!!!!
