Weekend trip to Cesky Krumlov

July 2017's trip was to visit a close neighbor of Germany: Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic. It took about 3.5 hours to get there from our house, so not too bad! Honestly, CZ was never even on my radar as a place to visit, but there are so many interesting places to see there! We had been told by some friends that Cesky Krumlov was like a smaller, better we decided to see for ourselves! It was a pretty cute place, but didn't quite live up to the hype we'd been told. We toured the castle (including seeing a live bear in the moat!), ate some delicious grilled meat, saw a really cool rotating outdoor theater, toured a graphite mine, and had some yummy crepes. Our hotel was not great...I wouldn't recommend staying there. But, it was cheap, had free parking for our car, and included breakfast. The room was hot, the bedding was incredibly scratchy, and the wifi didn't work well, though.

The rain won't stop us!

Don't feed the bears!

Pretty cool idea

Ready for whatever the mine will throw at me
