This summer our travels took us to Europe. We were heading to Bordeaux for my (Kirsty’s) cousins wedding; but being the travelling souls we are, eager to get the most out of any trip we researched many, many options before we set off. We started some time ago with a plan to go there via Jordan, Egypt and into Libya before heading across the Mediteranean from Tunisia – but that one fell apart – as did the option via Iran and into Turkey and across. As time went on the time available to travel decreased and we plumped for a shorter trip flying into Prague and heading across Germany, to Paris and down to the South of France… it’s going to take me a few blog posts to tell the tales… so here goes…
We flew to Prague, headed by bus and metro across town to hop on a bus to Cesky Krumlov for an initial few days of relaxation. And it was… touristy, but quiet and laidback all at the same time, we spent a few days exploring the winding alleyways, and acclimatising ourselves to Europes cold, cold weather – and RAIN!!!!
These posts are going to be photo heavy that’s for sure but it’s not the first time that I’ve admitted that one of my main aims here is to capture us and the kids on our travels in pictures at least as much words…..
Hanging out at the bus station in Prague – coffee for Mama, rainbow unicorns for Indy, Rainbow magic for Saffy 🙂
Sleeping beauty on the bus
First view of Cesky when we got off the bus and set off to walk into town
The tower of the castle, visible from everywhere in town
Checking out the viewDining at Laibon Vegetarian restaurant – so very good we went back twice!
That’s it for now but I’ll be back with more tales of Cesky soon….
