I took enough photos to justify this car ride from Brno to the base of the High Tatras needing its own post. I know I have cool friends because a five-hour-turned-nine-hour car ride was one of the favourite parts of my entire Eastern Europe trip, somehow. I’d kind of forgotten how much fun my crazy Zion friends are to be around. A lot of these are from Žilina, Slovakia. Unfortunately, the castles we wanted to visit were all closed, but we still found gorgeous places to stop on the way.
