 Bratislava - day 3

Bratislava #2

Hrad Bratislava (Bratislava Castle)

If you ever plan to go to Bratislava, you should really visit the Bratislava Castle (Hrad Bratislava). The view is awesome even though the weather was foul today.

Click on the photomerged images below to see them in all their glory (full size).

Beer prices in Bratislava

We did a three day trip to Bratislava to have some drinks and celebrate the birthdays of Christoph and Lydia. Beer is extremely cheap over there. The most expensive beer we drank costed EUR 1.80 (0.5L). Compare that to the beer prices in Venice. ;-)

Chucky, his bride, Nathalie and grandaunt Emmy

In Passau, we stayed at the house of grandaunt Emmy. She’s the grandaunt of my brother’s girlfriend and a nice old lady.

In my room I met Chucky, his bride and his daughter:

Würzburg, Ural, Aschaffenburg and back

The sidecar I mentioned yesterday is an Ural. We went to see and test it in a small town near Frankfurt, in Egelsbach. After examining and riding it for about an hour, my brother decided not to take it because its condition wasn’t good enough.

On our trip to Egelsbach we had a break on a motorway resthouse at Würzburg South. We had a great view over Würzburg there. I took several images and photomerged them:

After examining the sidecar and going back on our six hour trip from Egelsbach to Passau, we stopped at Aschaffenburg where we had lunch and visited the Johannisburg.

There was a great red brick wall near the Johannisburg which provided a nice motive for another wallpaper. :-) Just click on the image below. If you are looking for another red brick wall, try this one.

We had lunch in a lovely restaurant near the Johannisburg where I found these nice beer coasters. :)
