King of the Castle

Three things I learned today:

  1. Your feet will feel like they are being burned by the fires of hell if you walk too much. Conclusion: Walking is bad for your health (right?)
  2. McDonalds is delicious anywhere
  3. Ice cream should be considered as a crucial component of the food pyramid

I started off my day by heading off to the train station with my mom to buy our tickets for our trip to Budapest (leaving tomorrow morning) and Prague (going to be there next week).

I swear the first 5 minutes of a Supernatural episode could take place in this house

It was on our way back from the train station that we came across the president’s home. And dayuuuuuum was it every big. Like I genuinely cannot imagine why somebody would need a house that large – any ideas? (One room for the president’s office, one for his bedroom, a kitchen, one guest room, and thirty rooms for his stuffed animals?)

Behind his house, there was a garden that was open to the public as wellProcessed with VSCO with c1 presetProcessed with VSCO with c1 preset

Side note: for some reason, these statues reminded me of titans from AoT….

Anywhoooo

We then wandered off to find Bratislava’s Castle. It was while wandering into the castle and exploring its surroundings that I wondered what it would be like if we could actually ‘magic schoolbus’ back in time and see what life would have actually been like hundreds of years ago for the people of Bratislava. What would the castle life be like? Would there be war? Would the rulers be kind or cruel? Would the city be hustling and bustling with individuals wanting to trade their goods or sell their handmade crafts? What clothes would they wear?

By the time we had left the castle, I was starving – so I opted for a traditional Slovakian meal:Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Re-energized by our ever-so-healthy meals, we walked to a mall and then headed back to where we were staying.

Aaaaaand I may have ended my day again with some ice cream…Processed with VSCO with c1 preset
