    Back on British soil!

    March 27 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    It feels strange to think that I haven't been in the UK for a whole 3 weeks. It's been incredible but I am definitely happy to be back (can't wait to see my puppy). Going to explore London for the day as my last city!

    Donuterie

    March 26 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    Lunchtime doughnut and hot chocolate. I'm not exaggerating when I say this is the best doughnut I've ever had. Off the tourist path and nestled in a little side street.

    Chocolate orange doughnut for now and a white chocolate raspberry to take away!

    Terezin

    March 25 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    Final concentration camp of my trip today. I think the way Prague and the Czech Republic as a whole remember the Holocaust is very simple but respectful. Small plaques stand in front of houses where victims lived, commemorating the individual lives that were taken by the Nazi's. The plaques themselves are made of a metal that becomes shinier the more it is walked on symbolising the fact that the more we ignore the past the more present it is. Drove along the road when the assassination of Heydrich took place, the road itself has changed dramatically over the years but is marked with another simple memorial. The past couple of days have given me a massive amount of respect for what Czechoslovakia (as it was at the time) went through at the hand of the Nazi's, and I am in awe by the resilience of the people here at the time and their resistance to the regime.Read more

    World War 2 and Anthropoid tour

    March 24 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☁️ 9 °C

    Interesting tour today focused on World War 2 and the Operation Anthropoid. Saw the church where the incredible parachutists who assassinated Reinhard Heydrich fought bravely for 6 hours against the Gestapo, eventually giving their lives rather than being captured. Met Jakob, a brilliant tour guide, who has introduced me to Prague beer. I don't drink beer but this may have converted me...Read more
