Miles, hills, lots of.
End up camping at about 1000m altitude in what would be a very disappointing ski resort.


Repeat.
There are more Romany heritage people in this part of the world, just observing, and hard not to observe as there are loads at the roadside selling mushrooms from buckets.

Met a super cool Slovak family of 5 on ONE bike!
A self built tandem recumbent with trailer (and electric but I'll let them off given the weight of sleeping children and children's bikes they are dragging around in addition to panniers etc!)

Up a big hill. There are lots of big climbs today. The railway is doing circles to get up the gradient in one place.

Stopped in a village for a yoghurt and water and notice that the shop opposite is doing a roaring trade, so pop my head in to find its selling hot doughy jam filled pastries. Which turn out to be delicious once they have cooled down enough and the local drunk has been dissuaded.

Annnd there's loads of people stopped looking at a field of donkeys. On closer inspection, the main attraction is marmots, which must be the best fed marmots in the world.

One more hill and its into the Slovensky Raj (Slovak Paradise) national park.
