Cesky Krumlov doesn't seem too far away from Plzen but the last 35km is a killer. It took about an hour and a half on the local train just to get this far, because as we found out later, it follows a river. How efficient...

We arrived, bought some groceries and finally got to our pension. Unfortunately I read wrongly on the website and it didn't have a kitchen so Andrew made an interesting makeshift soup with the only heating device we had, a kettle. The soup had some carrot and so much garlic that I still had garlic breath the next morning. Noice.
We also decided to wash our clothes in Cesky, and found the only laundromat in town. Not only was it the most expensive washing machine we had ever seen, it was also the slowest in the world so we spent much of our time waiting for it to wash. Finally all the chores were over and we had a lovely afternoon wandering around this picturesque little village. It's nestled in the mountains and is so gorgeous, often likened to a mini Prague. We consumed the cheapest beer so far on the trip ($1.20) in a bar over looking the church and generally enjoyed the atmosphere. Dinner was a great experience, we visited a cosy little restaurant with local cuisine. They were quite busy so we were seated with another couple, an older pair from Guernsey. They turned out to be quite a laugh, and when they left a couple from Cesky sat down so we had a good old chat to them too. It was quite a fascinating evening.

We left Cesky after 2 days bound for Salzburg.
