A first Bear on our way in Slovakia

April 13 2014 , Written by Le BLOG d'Around The Rock Published on #Europe, #Travel Stories

We arrived in the North-West of Slovakia on 12th April.

At the end of the day, we were looking for a place to sleep near the mountains. We met Martin who told us "Come into our house, it's the birthday of my daughters, we're doing a party with the family !!".

After drinking a coffee with his wife Martina, all his family arrived, we were 17.

We ate typical food from Slovakia and we drank an alcohol from plum (52%). After a family concert, Martin proposed to sleep in their house and to go with him in the forest the following day.

Martin and Martina are forester and they usually observe deers and bears.

On sunday morning, after two hours in the forest where we saw deers, we had the luck to see a bear at about 50 meters from us. It was young, about four years old, the weight was about 100kg and the size would have be 1,70m if it was standing up.

Martin showed us a trap in which they catched a bear last week. The goal is to put them collars to know where they go.

It was very interesting to share a moment with him. He explained us what we can eat in the forest, like the wild garlic (food that the bears love).

Globally, we spent a very nice time with Martin, Martina and their three daughters who made us some drawings and prepared us some presents for the trip.
