Its been almost two weeks since we started this trip and yet I feel we have seen and done so much already.

Within 30 minutes of arriving in France we stopped at Carrefour and stocked up on cheese, meat, bread and beer. Before we knew it we was driving in a wonderful countryside of Belgium on our way to Brussels. "Yes" the so called boring Brussels but we were pleasantly surprised how enjoyable it was to be around the centre and yes we slept in Banksy only 300 metres from the main square. The next country Luxembourg doesnt exactly get the exotic tastebuds going but it was well worth the three days we spent there, Vianden for the fairytale castle, Echternachs ancient town, Esch sur sure quaint village and Luxembourg for the mega funfare that attracts people from all over Europe. The cycling and walking here is fantastic and the whole country just seems so neat and tidy.

Germany the next country was just supposed to be a transit place on the way to Czech Republic but somehow it managed to get it claws into us and keep us around for five days. In that time we cycled around Moselle valley, sampled some fine wines at one of the many winefestivals, visited Bamberg, Heidelburg, Rothenburg and drove along the Rhine. This whole region is beautiful and Im sure we will stop somewhere here on our return maybe in of the many medieval towns.

We are now in Prague after spending the night at Karlovy Vary which in our opinion is the best Art Nouveau city we have ever come accross. It has a compact center with riverside cafes, thermal spas and more than enough gorgeous buildings that sometimes from the distance look like they are painted in ice cream flavours. The low key town of Cheb is a gem that made us stay the night and enjoy our first Czech pizza overlooking the square while drinking cheap local beer. The weather has been fantastic, warm, sunny and blue skies every day. So today we done all the laundry and we then witnessed the heaviest downpour either of us have seen outside Asia. So when the washing is dry well let you know what we thought of Prague.

Will upload the pictures when theres a card reader available.
