camping in Mala Fatra national park
After an unimaginable day at Auschwitz the day before, the six Dutch guys and I headed to Mala Fatra National Park in Slovakia to camp. I wasn't prepared for the freezing nights in Slovakia. With no sleeping bag or tent, I slept in the freezing van with as many clothes as I could fit on my body.
Before that that miserable night of sleep, I had a enjoyable night drinking beer and camping around a fire with the six Dutch guys. We ended roasting some disgusting Slovakian hot dogs. They tasted like hard plastic beef jerky. I recommend to not eat the cheap Slovakian hot dogs.
Scouting out the river near our camp site
It was a welcoming change to be able to camp. I hadn't been out in the wilderness with a fire going in a few years. It brought memories of sitting around a fire with friends in college. I'm hoping for more spontaneous adventures like this one.
