    Hostel Mitte

    December 19, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    Say what you will about tiny loft bedrooms in the 4th floor attic of heritage buildings with no lifts - I love them. This one had a double bed and a 150cm thing, which I colonised quickly as the reading nook. I tried very hard not to look at Richard when we discovered the bathroom was down a flight of stairs, lest I be withered to pieces. In unrelated news, I have now lost planning privileges, along with map privileges which disappeared following the Palmenhaus Incident. Yolo.Read more

    Snack time

    December 18, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    The first few days we had tried the more efficient (time and price) method of having our biggest meal of the day at lunch. It worked well in that it's a much cheaper way to eat out, but as two idiot office workers used to skipping breakfast, having something perfunctory for lunch, and then a huge dinner, it was making us feel a bit (in my case a lot) queasy and it was cheating me out of dinner (cruel). We chucked that in today and it was probably for the best, this delicious cheesy jammy snack held us over until later.Read more

    Getting our bearings in Brno

    December 18, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    It's lovely here! A very scaleable city, everything seemed to be about 200m away. We dumped our bags at the accommodation (more on that later) and went out for a walk, then after seeing more in far less time that I'd planned (see 200m comment) stretched out with a drink in a very hip seeming place called SKOG but with that interesting Nordic slash through the O. I had the jasmine orange lemonade and it was delicious.Read more

    Brno

    August 2, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    On arrive à Brno le week-end du grand prix de moto. On comprend mieux pourquoi trouver des chambres dans la région est compliqué . Une super ambiance , la bière coule à flot.
    On mange dans une brasserie ( là où on brasse la bière) et nous regalons d un jarret de porc confit. Et monsieur finit par son traditionnel gâteau au chocolat et Ice coffee.Read more

    Ein Zwischenstop in Brünn

    October 21, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Eine sehr angenehme Stadt, mit vielen Cafés, Shops und einer tollen Altstadt. Die Leute sind mega entspannt und das merkt man auch am Flair.
    Gut zum shopping geeignet.

    Nachts standen wir auf einem kleinen Campingplatz im Nirgendwo. Wir kamen erst im Dunkeln an, perfekt für Sternefotografie.Read more

    Last day in Brno

    October 23, 2016 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C

    I found an Apple Store in town today as well as a huge shopping centre. Bad news is my phone won't hold much data let alone upload to cloud so I have to email myself my pictures to my laptop and then delete them from my iphone to make space. Pain in the ass. When I return to Sk I will buy a camera. Ntl I have managed to make some space to take a few shots today. Visited the gothic church of St. Peter & Paul, Green Market square and Freedom Square. Check out the cock clock as it is known here. Rings everyday at 11 but should be at noon and no one can figure out what time it is. It was erected (literally) in 2010 and the representation is when the swedes invaded in 1645. Every new year it's wrapped in plastic to protect it from fireworks so it looks like a giant condom. Only in Europe! Amazing.Read more

    Tag 12 - Brünn

    August 6, 2020 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Nah einem gemütlichen Mützchen bis fast halb 10 noch im Appartment gefrühstückt und die Sachen für die Weiterreise gepackt. Mit dem Bus zum Bahnhof Trutnov und von dort mit Umstiegen in Hradec Kralove und Paradubice weiter nach Brünn gefahren. Halbwegs pünktlich (wie immer auf dieser Reise) um halb 4 dort angekommen, ins Hotel gefahren und um 5 raus um die Brünner Innenstadt zu erkunden.
    Dort zunächst mal ein (sogar gutes) veganes Restaurant entdeckt und nach dem Essen weiter auf den Freiheitsplatz, wo grade ein Bierfestival stattfand. War etwas verwundert, dass wie zu vor-Covid-Zeiten gefeiert wurde und nachdem die Stimmung ganz nett war, hab ich mich noch auf zwei Biere hinzugesellt. Leicht wackelig noch den Rest der Innenstadt bewandert um gegen 20:00 noch einige Souvenirs für die Lieben zuhause zu besorgen. Letztlich gut und wohlbehalten im Hotel angekommen und den Abend bei einer letzten Spiele-Abendrunde beschlossen.

    Brno-Czech Republic

    October 21, 2016 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    Well here I am again in another amazing city. I am the only one in my six bed hostel (keeping my fingers crossed) and it is an apartment decorated for a queen. I may actually sleep all night. Brno from what I walked so far this afternoon has lots of culture, history and is the Moravian region. It's gorgeous! I will be here for the next 3 days snooping around and then will decide where to go.Read more
