This morning we visited two more chateaus: one in Valtice and one in Mikulov. In Mikulov the building looked like a quarter of it was a castle, whilst the rest was a chateau. The chateau and the town itself have many Italian influences and style. We then continued to Kyjov to visit and stay with Monika's university friend Karolina and her family. It was a very pleasant and enjoyable time including visiting their wine cellar and tasting some lovely wine. They have their own vineyard and grow various grapes to make different types of wine, mainly white with some red. The vine crop this year apparently was not looking good due to the extreme weather conditions they have been having. Kibble had a great time running around with their dog Niki. The weather was very, very hot and the forecast is for even higher temperatures in the second half of this week – up to 37 degrees! We also learnt about the birth of the royal son to Kate and William at the end of the day.



Dnes dopoledne jsem navstivili dalsi dva zamky: jeden ve Valticich a jeden v Mikulove. V Mikulove zamek vypadal, ze je ze ctvrtiny hrad a zbytek je zamek. Zamek a mesto maji velmi italsky vliv a styl. Pak jsme pokracovali do Kyjova na navstevu k Monicine kamaradce z vysoke skoly Karoline a jeji rodine. Zustali jsme u nich na noc. Byla to velmi mila a prijemna navsteva, ktera zahrnovala take navstevu v jejich vinnem sklipku a ochutnavku vin. Maji svou vlastni vinici a pestuji ruzna vina, hlavne bila a par cervenych. Uroda se letos asi moc nevydari kvuli extremnimu pocasi, ktere tu letos jsou. Kibblovi se moc libilo behat s jejich psem Niki. Pocasi bylo velmi, velmi horke a predpoved rika, ze bude jeste vic horko, az 37 stupnu! Take jsme se dozvedeli o narozeni kralovskeho syna Kate a Williamovi.
