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.

Friendly fun relaxed walk with Erich and rescue dogs
Erich communicated well before we arrived at the Tesco in Lamac so we knew where to meet. A very short drive across the highway to the rescue dog centre where the dogs are chosen for you and you get given treats to give to the dogs.
After getting accross the busy highway roads. Is a nice relaxing 3 hour walk with the dogs through the park/forest. Dogs are on the lead the whole time. We visisted parks, lakes, a cafe where Erich bought us cold drinks and a choclate wafer treat. Passed a refurbished water mill and an old ammuniction bunker from the war.
Erich has alot of knowledge of the history of slovenia and surrounding countries. If you want a break from the normal city escape and love dogs then this is a nice little change of pace
I Very Good and Intresting Tour
We booked the tour trying to find out more than just the tourist information about the city. We really were getting a feel for the city we were staying in.
The tour was around 2 hours and our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
I would recommend the Off The Beaten Track tour to anyone who wants to know a bit more about local life.
A great experience!
We really enjoyed the dog walking tour. Erich was a brilliant guide - he was very friendly and had lots of local knowledge of the area and of Slovakia in general which was very interesting. The dogs were lovely and quite energetic, and it was great to be able to help the animal shelter, which we got to look around after the tour. It was nice to be able to take a break from the city and walk around the forest, and we had a nice break with a drink and snack. Overall, a brilliant tour!
