Virtual Paintout - Slovakia II - December 2012 (first stages)

Happy 20th anniversary Slovakia! (I heard on the evening news that they split from the Czech Republic on 1 January 1993.) Street View images of the country are filled with blossoming fruit trees so I gave up looking for snow and decided to start dreaming of spring already! (road to Voznica)

Wishing everyone a positive and productive 2013!

Virtual Paintout - Slovakia - December 2012

You have to be in the mood for spring if you travel through Slovakia using Google Street View because most of the images were taken in April or May.  Yet the spring scene I selected above has a bit of a red and green holiday feel to it, doesn't it?

This is my contribution to Bill Guffey's current Virtual Paintout. Here is the link: Liptovské Matiašovce, Slovakia.
