Category ‘09.28 – Czech Republic’
We spent 3 nights in Cesky Krumlov, a really small town in the south of the Czech Republic. Since it’s small, there’s really not a ton to do there – which was perfect because we needed a little break. We pretty much spent a few hours each day out walking around the town, and the rest of the time just hanging out at the hostel. We stayed at a really cute & cozy little hostel called the Krumlov House. The managers were two girls from New Zealand who were traveling around Europe but stopped there for a few months to make some money. They were awesome, although a little tricky to understand sometimes (thick accents and goofy words – it’s harder than you’d think!). There were also some really cool American visitors there, so we had a good time just hanging out with everyone.
Anyway, here’s a few photos from our time there… (more…)
I’ve been slowing down on the blog lately, I know. It takes a bit of time and usually I enjoy it… but the last couple of weeks I’ve been appreciating my time off and relaxing a little more (in other words, being lazy). So for those of you who are following along, here’s a quick update. I hope to post more about these places later.
FYI, even when I’m not posting I usually keep the “Where are we now?” box on the right side of the page up to date, and every once in a while I update the map on the “Travel Plans” page at the top menu. And if that’s not enough, join Facebook and add Ben and I to your friend list, we add things there occasionally too.
Cesky Krumlov (Czech Republic) – 3 nights in a hostel in this small medieval town. We had a good time wandering the streets, and also hanging out with the hostel managers and guests.
Ben and I spent two nights in Prague, Czech Republic; just enough time to realize that it’s an amazing city, but hardly long enough to even scratch the surface. Prague has really cool architecture, something I’ve heard before but I couldn’t have imagined without seeing it in person. So far it rivals Paris on my list of beautiful cities in Europe. Paris is a little softer and prettier, and Prague is a little more striking and edgy.
