About me:

Normal guy trying to enjoy life. I was living with a younger boyfriend/partner with whom I was happy and our family supported us, until in December 2016 he passed away of lymphoma. I am running my own eshop with flower bulbs, ornamental and fruit shrubs and trees, perenials, grasses as well as an unusual hostel in our greenhouse. In my free time I am working as a tourist guide presenting several tours. My other leisure activities are hiking, riding a bicycle, swimming, walking with dog or meeting and talking to foreign people. In 2013, I started an association called "Vypestuj Dobro" (= Grow Good), which tries to encourage people to share their surplus of garden produce with the families with children in need. I really enjoy working on it. Read more

I love my city because: I was born here, my family lives here, my friends live here and from my foreign trips I know, that Bratislava city is not the largest village in Slovakia as many people think but it has a lot to offer to the people with various interests.

Great tour, feel you’re helping the dogs
I loved this tour, it was the highlight of my trip to Bratislava. Erich was extremely knowledgable about so many topics. You could see the dogs were well looked after at the shelter despite awaiting their forever homes. The staff at the shelter make sure that you take out dogs who haven’t had a walk that day. This was a great tour I would recommend to anyone visiting Bratislava.
Great experience !
This was a great experience to be a part of. It made the dogs very happy, which made us very happy. I wish that there was a more functional way about getting to the dog shelter. One of us had to sit in the back of the van with no seats. Other than that is was such a fun day. They were very accommodating to our requests which was nice :)
Highlight of my trip
We love outdoor walks/hikes and dogs, and if you do too this is probably for you. Bratislava is a lovely city to visit, but if you want to see a small bit of the forest side of Slovakia (apparently 40% of Slovakia is forest!) and help give some shelter dogs their much needed daily walk this is a fantastic idea. Erich is also a very friendly and knowledgeable guy and made it really worthwhile. Thank you so much!!
