Monthly Recap: December 2018

We’ve just arrived home from a sparkling, freezing (and occasionally stormy) winter wonderland! And December is the time for Christmas, Christmas markets, lots of chocolate and delicious home-cooked meals, and all things good. It was a great month.

Highlights

Lake Poprad, High Tatras, Slovakia

Winter hiking in Slovakia. We’ve spent a lot of time hiking in the beautiful mountains of Slovakia in the past years, but we’ve never been in winter – until now. And we love it! Though we definitely prefer hot to cold, the only thing that makes winter good is snow. Frozen waterfalls, thick white blanket of snow, white peaks sparkling in the sun – those were the highlights of that 4 days we spent in the Tatras and Fatras of Slovakia at the end of December. You can be sure to read a detailed post about it soon. 😉

December 2018: Winter in Gödöllő, Hungary

Visiting the Royal Palace of Gödöllő after the first snowfall. We had the first snowfall in Hungary in December! This hasn’t happened for years. A castle with a lovely little Christmas market in its park was a magical place to enjoy all the nice, white scenes.

December 2018: Bratislava, Slovakia

Bratislava. We visited Slovakia’s capital the second time this December. We went to see the Christmas markets, but what we really liked was the street art and the architecture. Bratislava is a much more beautiful city than what we remember from our first visit 3 years ago. Conclusion: it’s worth revisiting places we already know. (I’d like to know though how we will visit EVERY place in the world if we keep going back to the ones we’ve already been to. 😀 ) We also updated our Bratislava sightseeing guide, check it out here!
