    “Hi Peter Thank you so much for a wonderful visit to your country. Tom and I had so much fun with you and your friends. We enjoyed our history lessons you gave us. Since neither of us knew anything about Slovakia, it was nice to spend a week learning the Slovakian background and seeing a variety of places and things. I especially enjoyed the hiking in the Tatras, visiting the wooden churches, seeing some of the middle-aged towns, and of course our touring of Bratislava. What we talk about the most is our time in the pension talking to Eva and Vlado (can’t forget Bella!) and our new “family” –you, Jane, your sons, Martin and his family. That bonding was special…thank you for making it possible. Peter, you are a very good guide. You were able to figure out what we wanted during our stay and you provided it. Thank you. Fondly Barb and Tom”
