    My husband and I returned last week from Slovakia, where we spent time in Bratislava, Kosice and several locations in between. We travel often, and were amazed at how much Slovakia has to offer – numerous UNESCO World Heritage Sights, excellent hotels, good meals, very palatable wine, friendly people, and no crowding – all priced very attractively. Our guide, Peter Blazicek, was a gem. Full of knowledge and enthusiasm, excellent companion, linguist, and driver, he was the guide one always wants but doesn’t always find. He and his wife, Jane, who drove us from the Vienna airport to our Bratislava hotel, were great from beginning to end. Any visit to that area of Europe would be enhanced by their presence. Fay & Ed
