About the author:

My name is Peter Knapo, alias Knaper. I am from Slovakia. I have been traveling in Asia as backpacker since May 2016.


I have master degree in electronics. I like traveling, trekking, coffee roasting and drinking, and salsa dancing.

During my journeys, I am trying to travel as locals; be a traveler, not a tourist.

When I am traveling, people usually do not know my country.


Slovakia (Slovak Republic) is Eastern-European country. Now, member of EU. Currency is Euro. Capital city is Bratislava. Country population: 5.5 million people. In the past, we had one republic with Czech republic – Czechoslovakia (till 1993). Slovakia is beautifull mountain country with many castles, caves and nice natural sceneries. We have also quality wineries in the south and good cheap beer.

I am living in village (2500 inhabitants) in north-west part of Slovakia closed to Kysuce protected landscape area and Javorniky mountain.
