Hey. Just as I’m typing this I’m sitting on a train on my way home. There is 10 hours of train and car drive in front of me, over 21 stops till I get home as I’m traveling from Prague Czech republic to Presov Slovakia – almost the final destination of this inter-state train (and then I still have to travel some more east)


Don’t get me wrong I’m not complaining I love traveling.

I’m sitting in a comfortable leather chair, got my laptop, free wi-fi connection, Netflix, I just ordered food, got my Christmas playlist going on and I’ve got a beautiful view over the country.

There is this interesting conversation going on between two strangers sitting across me and I know it’s rude to listen to other people’s conversations but what they talk about just warms my heart. They both speak English and that’s what caught my attention in the first place as this is a Czechoslovak train. They talk about global warming, global issues, politics and it’s just so nice cuz they are complete strangers and yet they get along and share really interesting opinions.

I just wanted to share this cute experience with you guys.
But most importantly – I’ll see my family and my dog today 🙂
Thank you for your attention

    Merry Christmas to you with your family and your dog. Is there snow giving light to the scenery?

    I love Prešov! We lived in Hungary until a few years ago when we moved to the States. We lived in Eger, straight south of Rožñava, and we often traveled to Slovakia. Merry Christmas!
