Aug 28, 2013 - doing the tourist thing in Beroun and Karlstejn

27 August - Up to a bit of a gray day but not to be deterred we donned our trusty daypack loaded down with our camera, lunch, rain jackets, sun glasses and maps and caught the local bus to the nearby community of Beroun. More beautiful old buildings, another wonderful city square this time with veggie vendors hawking their wares, more tourist info people that don't speak English, more smiles and nods and sign language!!! We are convinced the locals in Rudna think we are mutes as all we do is smile, nod and point. We learned how to say...

Aug 26, 2013 - checking out our neighbourhood

24 August - The time is passing very quickly and we have become very comfortable in our little nest here. Saturday we took a walk in the countryside passing through a couple of nearby villages as they are spaced very closely. You can see the next town as you exit the one you are in.

They both teach social anthropology at the nearby university and get three months holidays every year so have done lots of travel worldwide. Very interesting folks. We had an early supper then headed...

Aug 22, 2013 - safely in CZ

We are in Prague and officially on holidays now. We were met at the airport by Lenka at whose home we will be staying for the next 10 days. After a nine hour flight from Seattle and a 4 hour layover at Heathrow airport in London we made the easy 2 hour hop into Prague. Actually the worst part of the whole trip was the mis-named “Quick” Shuttle to Seattle. We didn’t realize that to clear customs the whole bus must empty out and all luggage must be inspected airport style. Anyone who travels south will be familiar with cheerful,...
