Folks, just an enthousiastic bit of support on my part, for this great
initiative. I spent a summer holiday in this magnificent little country, and
was overwhelmed by its beauty. And most of all the flowers. This is truly a
'flower country'. At least in Holland and I think most places in Western
Europe we are not used to such a floristic abundance. Allready on the camping,
you can't put up your tent, without being afraid to crush some Orchid or other
rare plant :-)
Especially Slovensky Raj ("Paradise" - truely): you walk in amazement from
one Orchid to the next Soldanella... Campanula carpatica ?: whole blue
Take this chance !
