5 Things To Do In Czech Wine Country

 Czech Republic,travel advice   Sep 21, 2017    By

I’m still searching for that undiscovered wine country. Many hidden gems emerged over the years to challenge the dominance of French and Italian wine.

Do you know the origins of the ‘one-man band’? I didn’t either. It turns out there isn’t much history to this phenomenon. Wikipedia only cites vague accounts of the one-man band appearing in Western Europe as early as the 13th century. I saw this once before years ago during a trip to Italy, however I […]

Planning a Czech Road Trip

So, I decided a few months back to plan a road trip through Czech Republic. I’d been to Prague a couple times, but I’ve heard much about the rest of the country – e.g. cheap, great beer, beer spas, etc. – that made me want to explore more. Czech road trips aren’t that common, and […]

Prague – Nice city, but not the best time…

Of course I was excited about Prague, I planned on doing a couple day trips from there, seeing a bit more of Czech Republic. Plans changed, however. First of all, the bed at my hostel was unbelievably uncomfortable, and the resulting back pain made me sluggish my first few days there so I didn’t do […]
