Greetings from Rajecké Teplice, Slovakia

You may have to look a bit to find this place. We are just south of Zilina in a spa and winter resort town.

We are here because on this northern part of our trip we are following the Edelweiss Kings and Castles Tour. Kings and Castles Tour Map We don’t have the exact route, of course but we will find our way along the general route.

Another great ride today. Very pretty country and villages along the way. As soon as we crossed the border we were in farm country. Long stretches of tree-lined roads next to brilliant green and yellow fields. We had joy in our hearts.

We rode long stretches of these tree lined roads. Wonderful!

We lost the sun somewhere this morning and soon after we had the Gerbings back on and cranked up. It was very chilly, especially over the mountain tops near here. We have come a long way north since Athens! We are about the same latitude as Vancouver, BC.

We are in a very nice hostel and when we returned from dinner there was a FJR from Finland in the parking lot. Maybe we will see him at breakfast.

We are hoping for a bit of sun tomorrow. We are off toward the Tatra Mountains.

Beautiful fields just north of the Danube in Slovakia.
