Last DAY

Počuvaldinsko Jezero - Levice (cycle) Levice-Bratislava train Bratislava-Maribor(car)

overcast 23 °C

After breakfast I started pedalind in direction Bratislava because I was only 155km away and could cycle the distance in 2 days.
After 40km I have arrived to town I got strange urge to jump on first train and get back home. I was listening to my senses and went on first train. Had to wait only 30 minutes. On the train I had a big fight with older conductor who was making fun of me. Didnt let me entered on the ramp where I was loading the bike but wanted to sent me 10 meters away on public enterence. I jumped on the train anyway, which made conductor really mad. He was yelling at me, but had to stop because had job to do. After train left the station he camed again to my cabbin and yelled at me some more. This time I was polite to him, because didnt want to exit on next station. Conductor was controlling me all the way to Bratislava, so I was to afraid to go smoking in toilett.
In Bratislava I found my car without any problem. It was not damaged, so I could pack my bike inside and drive in direction home.Arrived in 3 hours. when I camed home I found out, that my father is seriously ill and that he has a problems with acceptance to the hospital. Situation was really serious so I brought him next day to hospital. Doctor still refused to accept my father, but I solved the issue in a minute. Later they found out, that my father had serious heart problem althou they operate him 1 month ago. Today he is felling great after operation and implant of peacemaker. I am really glad, that I went home that day so I could help my father.

EPILOG:
Trip was ok, but I wanted to cycle more. Didnt get what I expected. Slovakian are friendly people. Maybe is better to go there in winter for skiing.
When I camed back weather got worst so I bought cyclotrenažer and started cycling at home preparing for new adventure in December to Sri Lanka!
