Bratislava Castle / Bratislava, Slovakia
The steps leading up to Bratislava Castle are reflective of my morning drive into the office; it seems every road is under construction with one lane or the other closed. I decided last night to map out an alternate way in - google maps told me it would be about 15-20 minutes longer than my normal route but I figured I'd otherwise be sitting in traffic anyways. No sooner had I ventured past the point of no return on my alternate route when I came face to face with - road closed - with no detour direction. At that point I zigged and zagged through small little villages in the Black Country only to end up right at the major congestion point of my original route.
