Back to the past - Czech Republic

Ah, so now that we are starting to settle into a normal life again. Art & Judy are off, today we believe enjoying Beijing, Tina has had a few days of down time to clean, shop, and relax, and I am now back from a short trip to Shanghai.

So this is now the perfect time to roll the blog back to what we were talking about prior to our guests, and that is the remainder of our holiday in Europe....

Last we spoke about this trip, we were still in Vienna treating Barb to a proper birthday party. The next morning we were once again up and on a train, this time heading into the Czech Republic.

First stop was in Brno, which is pronounced exactly as it is spelled. It is an amazingly beautiful city, although the area around the train station is a little run down and doesn't exactly give you that warm welcoming feeling when you first come off the train.

Once we checked in at the hotel, a few of us went back into the center and wandered around. It was nice to stroll through the square and enjoy a beautiful sunset.

The next morning we were all up bright and early for another walking tour of the city. We strolled through the streets, courtyards, squares, markets and churches.
Just another great day of sightseeing, later that evening we all went out to dinner at a bowling alley....
