Winter In The Czech Republic

January and February 2004

 

I almost went to the Czech Republic on my 2002 European motorcycle odyssey, only to bypass it because I heard it was underwater at the time.  Tosh Skoda!

 

When I went there in January 2004 to visit Lenka, the place was blanketed in snow and looked incredible.  I've never seen anything quite like it ... especially when I was flying into Prague over snow covered fields and villages on New Years Eve.  I finally got my wish to have a white Xmas (well, nearly ... I was a few days short).

 

I didn't spend much time looking around Prague ... it was too frigging cold to spend all day outside gawking.  I also spent a lot my time sleeping as I was completely exhausted for about  month after returning from Mexico.  Still, I did get the opportunity to get outside Prague and see a castle, the world famous Bata shoe factory in Zlin (sorry no pictures) and a get a taste for Czech country life in Lenka's home town of Luchacovice.  I also got to taste Lenka's mother's Moose Goulash.  Delicious!

Anyway ... enough talk ... it's time to r-r-r-r-rumble!  Here's the photos from it all.  Enjoy.
