Adventures Past #3: "Eastward Ho!"
(Czech Republic to Munich - Tues 24th June to Fri 4th July, 2003)
|Climbing the hills to the castle was a lasting memory...|
|The centre of city life in Prague|
is the bustling Charles Bridge
We took a walk on our first day here through the parks leading to the huge Royal castle on the hill overlooking Prague. It has a really beautiful gardens and a huge old church called St Vitus.
|More objects I collected,|
including a wooden disc
from Terezin in Czech,
a harrowing former
Nazis labor camp
|People-watching in the majestic|
St Michael's Platz is highly recommended!
|We were treading the same pavements as Julie Andrews & co,|
humming as we went in Salzburg!
|Not sure why I needed a photo|
next to a big triangle! But when in Germany...
|Never leave home|
|The gobsmacking Rathaus in Marienplatz.|
(I have memories of using an international phone card
to ring home and speak to my family from a callbox
in the lefthand side of the square in this picture!)
The cooler weather in Munich was to prove to be short-lived when we got to our next stop of Venice where we encountered mosquitos literally the size of small birds at the camp site we stayed at...
|The second leg of our grand European Vacation|
was at an end but the adventure was just beginning!
Next, we made a beeline due south into sunnier climes...
