After my Scotland trip I went to Bremerhaven in Germany where I stayed with Dennis and Jenny, friends I made in Prague last summer. I borrowed their couch for a couple of days. Dennis showed me around in the port area and we went to see a German WW2 submarine U-2540.
The day after I arrived, Ann came from Malta Yay! We spend a nice day with Dennis and Jenny and had a really nice sea food dinner on the boat Seute Deern in the picture above.
The next day we headed east towards Prague. The first leg was with a mitfahrer to Dresden and then a train along the Moldau/Vltava to Prague. The next week I had Ann in Prague
Last weekend I joined the local chapter of IAESTE on a trip to Southern Bohemia. We were 50 people from about 20 different countries so there were a lot of different talks and a good atmosphere.
Friday we drove to a camp site on the Vltava River were we camped for the night while making Czech sausages and drinking pivo around the camp fire.
Next morning we got up and got suited for a canoe ride seven kilometers down the river.
It was a warm day with temperatures up to about 35 degrees so it was great day for cruising on the river. I think Dennis and I capsized 4 or 5 3 times during the sailing because we had to get through a couple of falls which we werent very good at.
I ended up getting my camera wet so no more pictures from me that day. Instead Im borrowing some from Dennis who was a bit more thoughtful with his camera.
We sailed until we reached Cesky Krumlov which is a really magical town with a huge castle overlooking the town. The centre of the town itself is also very beautiful. The city center is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Here is one of Dennis pictures overlooking the town from the castle.
Sunday we went to see the real Budweiser brewery in esk
