    Riding in the snow

    May 6, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    A fun ride from Passau to Česky Krumlov. Cold, but exhilarating. Just before we hit the Czech border the snow flakes started coming down. Only light and not for long. I was very glad we’d stopped in Passau to pick up a waterproof coat to go over my leather jacket. We were surprisingly comfortable - except for my hands. I tried to sit on them, because my seat is well heated!
    Česky Krumlov is just gorgeous. The Gold Hotel where we stayed perfectly located and gave the bike a perfect secure spot in the entrance courtyard. Great food too! I’d like the recipe for the mushroom and dill soup.

    Paseando por el pueblo de Cesky Krumlov

    February 15, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    El pueblo es bien medieval y esta entre las vueltas de un rio tranquilo. Las callecitas estan tal cual eran en aquella epoca y nos gusto recorrerlo todo, puentes y callejones incluidos.

    Almorzamos en un restaurante muy chiquito y tradicional, que estuvo bueno. Lo encontramos atras de la iglesia medio escondido.

    El sol nos ayudo a estirar la caminata. Valio la pena el viaje en auto.

    Museo de la tortura medieval

    February 15, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☀️ 6 °C

    Antes de irnos descubrimos que en la plaza principal habia una entrada a las catacumbas del pueblo, y ahi tienen armado un museo de la tortura medieval muy bien ambientado.

    No era solo bajar las escaleras de piedra entre los tuneles, sino que estaba lleno de herramientas de tortura, figuras humanas de cera, y todo ambientado con gritos y ruidos horribles.

    Estuvo buenisimo!

    Castle & town Cesky Krumlov

    August 9, 2017 in Czech Republic ⋅ 🌧 17 °C

    In the morning we did a walking tour of the town and up to the castle. This is the 2nd biggest palace complex in Chez R after Prague Castle. The town and castle here are world heritage listed and wonderfully preserved with frescoes on many of the buildings. Town is on the winding Moldau River with hundreds of people canoeing down- only one way due to the Rapids.Read more

    Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic

    September 29, 2016 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    It's about 8:30pm as I am writing this post waiting for Mitch to wake up from a nap. I just took one before him when we came back from our walking tour of Vienna (that we'll write about later) which made us both pretty tired. We're almost back to normal from being sick so that's good news but I think a few more naps after long days of sight seeing should do the trick.

    Anyways, I just wanted to give you all a quick update on Cesky Krumlov. We decided to jump to the Czech Republic after being in Hallstatt since it was closer to get there on the way to Vienna rather than backtrack. Since I'd already been to Prague the most popular Czech city we landed on coming to Cesky Krumlov instead because we'd read that it was a smaller Prague with less tourists and cheaper prices. We'd have to agree on the cheaper prices, Mitch was happy about his beers costing only $1.60! There were still many tourists but definitely less then Prague so Mitch was able to get a good feel for a medieval Czech city which is surrounded by a winding river. The history of the town was interesting, especially seeing the recent communist influence 25 years ago.

    Ok, time to wake Mitch up so we can head to dinner and have a traditional Austrian wiener schnitzel which I'm sure we'll post about next time!

    La torre del castillo de Cesky Krumlov

    February 15, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☀️ 5 °C

    El viernes decidimos alquilar un auto y cruzar media Repubilica Checa para conocer el pueblo de Cesky Krumlov.

    Nos toco otro dia de sol y frio. Encontramos nieve por todos lados, pero al mediodia hacia mas calorcito. Casi 7 grados.

    Lo primero que vimos al entrar fue el castillo y su torre, asi que fue lo primero que visitamos. Subir era medio dificil, con escaleras muy viejas y empinadas, pero las vistas del pueblito desde arriba valieron la pena.Read more

    Rode through light snow successfully. Directions from the bike’s speakers (ex Jill’s phone map app) brilliant.

    Cesky Krumlov

    July 26, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Petite étape aujourd'hui. Mais bucolique à travers la Bohème du Sud.
    Nous arrivons à Cezky krumlov,pas moins de 250 monuments et édifices classés UNESCO et envahis de touristes. Bref , on est pas tout seul !
    Nous avons dû changer nos plans car impossible de se loger ici durant le week-end et pourtant ce n'est pas l offre qui manque.
    Les rues pavées, les murs peints ou sculptés, une ambiance médiévale dans toutes les tavernes...
    Le château qui surplombe la ville est immense, depuis le 14 ème siècle la tradition veut que 2 ours vivent sous le pont de l entrée. Pauvres ours !
