Christmas and New Year, we celebrated with my husband´s parents in the Eastern Slovakian town Sabinov. Because Mark's mother is a great chef, there is no surprise I had a problem to close my jeans after two days. But on the table were more and more goodies every day. And so we agreed that we'll have except candy, a small excursion to the surroundings every day to little move at least.
After a day in Herlany, we drove on the E58 road to Orechova, Sobrance district. We planned some winetasting and a trip to Morske Oko, which we did on the day after. How it all went you can read in this article.
