I have good intentions, but the only time I really blog is on a trip. I’m fortunate to return & visit family here. This time, home base is Prague, where my cousins have a flat. Yes, I know, it’s hard to take. Prague in the spring – or any other time – is beautiful. And I look forward to doing more exploring. I arrived Friday and have been on the go ever since. Today is a break from my vacation. Time to catch up. A few highlights so far:
A weekend in Adrspách, an area of spectacular rock formations in the northeast near the Polish border.
A day testing out trams and metro to wander Prague. Stops at the castle garden and stag moat. Fitbit logged 5.5 miles. Prague is on both sides of the Vltava River valley and hills are the norm here.
Yesterday was another walking day in Krivoklat and Rakovnik. The goal was to visit the castle. Negotiated the train station and almost got off at the wrong stop. Who knew a tiny village would have two stops? Surprise! Castle is closed. They are filming a movie there. So it turned into a crazy uphill walk to not find a tower recommended at the infocentrum. Train back to Rakovnik and great $8 duck dinner on a patio on the square. No, I did not eat all the dumplings. Fitbit said 6.5 miles.
