It's easy to criticize poor George W. Bush for confusing Slovakia and Slovenia. On the other hand, most people on the planet wouldn't know the difference between those two countries either.
One guy who does know the difference is Eric Wiltsher. This lively British gentleman has been broadcasting for Radio Tatras International in Slovakia for several years now. Eric has traveled all over the world and has endless stories to share.
On January 1, 1993, Czechoslovakia split in two: the Czech Republic on the west and Slovakia on the east. Although Slovakia may not be as economically rich as its western brother, it has mountains and nature that blow away what the Czech Republic offers.
Tune in this WanderLearn Podcast on Slovakia, where you will hear Eric's entertaining perspective. We will occasionally take a break and listen to traditional Slovak music. By the end of the podcast, I promise that you will know more about Slovakia than George Bush.
I will write all about Slovakia in my 2nd book, The Hidden Europe: What Eastern Europeans Can Teach Us. For now, please enjoy the podcast and tell me what you think on my forum!
