Holiday is a big thing in Prague. Many Czechs go away every weekend to a family cottage outside the city, and even more expats return to their home countries for the entire summer.
So last month when the Ortegas invited us to stay a couple of nights with them at a country house outside Prague, we were excited to go and see what it was like.
We traveled about two hours, to the northeast. The drive alone was awe-inspiring. We passed at least 5 castles on that short trip– each representing a little kingdom that had once stood there.
The countryside was gorgeous– so refreshing to see wild berries and dirt paths when we’re used to so much concrete.
We have a new admiration for people here.
When it’s summer, you swim, and Czechs will swim in water I would’ve run from in the past. This is as far as the Hunts ventured in this time. We’ll toughen up eventually.
Thanks for our first Czech-cation, Ortegas!
