European Peace Walk: Day 2 – Directions to Adam’s Horse Farm if Taking the Bus From Bratislava to Cunovo

Directions to Adam’s Horse Farm in Hungary from Cunovo Bus Stop

Due to the heat and the way I felt, I took the bus #91 from Bratislava (station under the the UFO bridge opposite the UFO). The cost was .90 euros for a ticket which you get from a machine.  I rode the bus to the last stop: Cunovo.

Departing the bus there is one red arrow directing you to turn left towards the main street.  Now here is where I needed directions.  I don’t know if this is the correct route but it is a route and I eventually got to Adam’s Horse Farm.

7) Proceed forward. Pick up the EPW directions from here starting with:

You keep going straight 300ms until you see an old army house. This is Hungary! You must turn right and cross over the canal 50ms away, otherwise you will end up walking all the way to Afghanistan. Over the canal, you turn left, on asphalt, for 200ms and there is a right turn into the woods. Go through the woods and then fields for 3 kms and you are in Adam’s horse farm.

  1. Route markings can be anywhere! I’ve seen them on the back side of roadsigns, on tree trunks, on the corner of buildings, on rocks, telephone poles, high voltage towers, and even (on rare occasion) purpose-built signposts. Also the practice I’ve seen in central Europe (at least Germany and the Czech Republic) is to only mark at turns, with nothing on the straightaways, regardless of how long.

    It’s a real bummer to be walking in the wrong direction and having to retrace your steps. Can you punch in your next destination town into your smartphone Google Maps, to get better oriented? Just trying to think of measures that might help.

    • Yes I understand. However, in this case, this particular area was not signed. That is why I wrote this post. I don’t have cell service here so I rely only on instinct and the kindness of strangers. And sometimes I walk a long way in the wrong direction.
