Strečno in early autumn <I>(\'But my home is my hills!\')</I>
While first time hiking in the Little Fatra Mountains several years ago, my daughter and I popped into the castle of Strečno which perches on a limestone rock at the outlet of the Váh gorge, near the Slovak city of Žilina.

We spent an hour inside the walls of the castle and were pleased although the tour was guided, which is not what we actually prefer. A visit to the castle can be enhanced with a ride across the River Váh on an old ferry and a pint of great Slovak lager (or a glass of wine, often served hot).

I'll pass on the glass of "warmed-up" wine. : )

Three cheers for enhancement !!!

Fact:

[Not all Slovak (amber) beers feature blonds
on the label - there's at least ONE red head!!]

You mean this Redhead?
Well, we know Red is extremely attractive, especially Red Rabbits :)))

BTW I've just started working on some other anti-depressing SP stuff, and right away came across a Red Tarn and a Red Spur!!!
