Vienna to Bratislava Travel Day

We had a relaxing morning since we knew we could buy tickets to Brastilava almost every hour. We decided not try try and rush breakfast and packing and take the 11:16am train.

We had a leisurely hotel breakfast. The kids went out into the patio and found worms. Which L then tried to feed an apple to. 😄 Back up to our rooms to finish packing and brush teeth. We lazed a bit and let the kids listen to Harry Potter before finally heading down to check out and get an Uber to the station. But what we didn’t realize was that we’d daudled a bit too much and now our train was leaving in about 20 minutes and we were still at the hotel! Thankfully though the Uber driver was quick, we hopped in and he zipped off. We got the train station with a plan, Ty would go buy the tickets and Papa, the kids, and I would find the platform with the luggage. We made it to the platform just as Ty arrived with the tickets and we had 2 minutes to spare. Guess we shouldn’t have taken things quite so lazily!

An hour riding through the country with various stops. It was relaxing and the kids enjoyed their Peppa Pig time. Also something to note about this train, when you use the toilet and flush all of a sudden you can see straight down to the tracks. 😬 Not so much for plumbing.


I cant stay the train station in Bratislava is my favorite. Smells a bit like garbage around there.


But once we made it to our hotel things perked up for sure.


There were two big draws for us to come to Bratislava, it was only an hour away fro Vienna and they had a hotel that was super cheap points! It cost us just a few hotel points to stay here. (Another big Ty skill is navigating hotel points) Above was a glimpse at our Suite and the kids and Papa have a super big room with two twin beds and a pullout couch. It’s huge! And they gave us free warm cookies upon our arrival. 😄

We dropped our stuff off and then Ty found us a place nearby for lunch. It was in the mall by the reviews said it had a kid play area next door to it. That’s all we needed to read! What we found was even better. It was a kid play area that they’d incorporated tables into it. For grownups and kids to both enjoy. Why don’t more places do this?! It made for such a relaxing meal. Yes, Ryder is on day three of wearing her drindl.
