May 8, 2012 - Plzen

Not a bad place but don´t think they are right when they say theres is the best beer in the world we know where it comes from. Being off the beaten track it was not tourist friendly and only the young people spoke English. Am now in Nuremberg only a little time left in Europe but looks like I will miss out on Cairo so I will get a few more days here. BYE FRANK

Apr 29, 2011 - A bell-free belfry

After the break in Bamberg came stops in elegant Bayreuth (once home to Richard Wagner), after the first day of bad weather, and functional Weiden. The road to the Czech border the following morning seemed to drag on and on, but after three hours I reached Barnau (home of buttons) and after a further massive climb I was out of Germany and into the Sudetenland. Immediately I spotted changes: a deterioration in the road surface and the landscape was much more sparsely populated. After a few more hills I reached a plateau, but each town was in...

Nov 28, 2007 - Totem Senior Language Classes, Pilsen

Dear students, and teachers Eva and Gabby, Thank you so much for letting us join in on your English classes last week while we were in Pilsen.

Good luck with your studies and we hope you can use your English abroad when visiting Canada, England, the United States or Australia! In peace, Kyla and...

Nov 26, 2007 - Pilsen

We had a wonderful time in Plzen, with great conversations and dinners with our hosts, Eva and Vladislav; a visit to Eva's organization, where we sat in on some English classes for seniors; and a visit to the Pilsner Urquell brewery. Plenty of more stories to come! Street of Political Errors - Nick writing We were told an interesting story about Ameriska Street , which was only named after the revolution in 1989, which summarizes a lot of what the Czechs went through over the last hundred years. At the turn of the century, the street was...

Nov 2, 2007 - Wandering, Wondering

Well this is a trip "journal," so allow me to indulge in a little "journaling." With feelings and stuff. The original purpose of coming to Europe was to find a spot to settle down and work for the winter, either teaching English or some social service job or volunteer opportunity. Then I got a little side-tracked traveling with the girls and then I'll be damned if the bug didn't catch me again and I got a little wander-lusty. The more you see the more that you see there is more to see, or something to that effect, and this is the traveler's...

Feb 24, 2005 - Pilsen Brewery & Svihov Castle

On Wednesday we went on our first trip that the ISC (Internation Student Center) arranged for us this week as part of orientation week. We basically just signed up for which ones we wanted to go to. I will be going to Karlovy Vary on Friday and Kutna Hora on Saturday. There was also a skiing trip in the mountains (not the Alps!) planned, but I decided I could ski at home. Anyway...about 40 of us students loaded up on a bus which drove about two hours to the town of Plzen, home to the third largest brewery in the world, Pilsner Urquell. Back...
