We knew from a few on our Eastern Europe tour group that we needed to add Cesky Kromlov (pronounced Chesky) to our cities to visit. Thanks Huff and Theresa for pointing us in the right direction on this one. We love these kind of towns...beautiful settings, interesting history, walkable sites and a "cool vibe." The city sits in a nook of a river that snakes through a valley. So, there is a nice river which adds to the rolling hills of the area.

Some of you might know that the Czechs are known for their beer. So, we went to the Eggenberg pub which has been around for over 500 years to have some of their locally brewed beer. Jana even liked the dark beer which says a lot! There were plenty of locals partaking too which is always a good sign. Then, we went to a local hotspot called Krcma v Satlavske where we ate dinner of meat, meat and meat...there are not a ton of veggie options in Czech Rep, just FYI. Meat, bread, and cream are found on many of the menu items!

As we were headed back to our hostel for the night, we saw a fun family taking a picture. The mom saw Jana's shirt that says "GLENROSE TEXAS" and asked us if we were from Texas. We of course replied yes...come to find out they used to live in Dallas and now live in Austin. The mom and dad, Steve and Jerrie (sp?), were visiting their daughter, Kelly, and her husband, Paul. Paul is in graduate school in Prague. Steve and Kelly were even Aggies to make the story even better AND Paul was from Shiner! We hit if off so well that we all went to have a few more beers! What a fun time we had with them! If any of you four are reading this, just know that Cesky will ALWAYS stand out because of you guys! Paul, we owe you a few beers too... Oktoberfest???

The next day we hit the sight seeing...we made it to a tour of the castle and did a self-guided audio tour of the town. Then in the late afternoon, we hopped on a bus to Prague for a few days.

We had the best breakfast here. Eggs, toast, GREAT fruit, potatoes, sausage/bacon and coffee...we had not had eggs in a while so this was quite a treat!
