On the road – technical Prague


“Just follow the kids!” could have been the motto of this day. We decided to visit a museum on our third day in Prague. As we weren’t really interested in Medieval Art or the like and the National Museum (Národní muzeum) is currently under construction, we decided to go to the Technical Museum (Národní technické muzeum). We checked it on google maps and it didn’t seem far away, Continue reading


On th road – Prague Josefov


After our first big tour through Prague we started the morning with what we had finished the last night with: Walking around the former Jewish Quarter Josefov. It was really nice seeing these beautiful houses at day time: lots of pastels, floral elements and the like. Art Nouveau for the mass market, I would call it. Just beautiful. Continue reading

On the road – All around Prague


We arrived in Prague on a sunday around midday. Getting there was not very difficult even though at the beginning we were trying to avoid highways to avoid toll charges. But when we crossed the border we realised that you didn’t need to pay toll charges for certain routes but rather needed a vignette for certain streets (that are not clearly marked by the way). And as the vignette for 10 days Continue reading


On the road – Passau


Our next stop after the Allgäu was Thyrnau near Passau. We spent three wellness days in the Parkschloessl Hotel with very relaxing sauna hours, lots of sleeping and three meals a day. Now while it was very nice it was nothing really to write home about. The hotel and its spa area was very clean, but what was missing was a general line in styles. You could see lots of styles, from very Continue reading


On the road – The Allgäu


We finally decided on a trip for our holidays a week before we wanted to leave, so about four weeks ago. A friend was visiting and we were discussing our many options. And our friend, who lives in Bavaria, in the Allgäu, said that depending on were we were going we should come visit. This helped me to convice Michael to go on a road trip. Continue reading


And what do you do today? We go to a monastry.


I just realised that I forgot this post here from our last holiday. So before I start writing about our road trip I want to share with you a few more pictures from Portugal: After our first surf lesson, Ulrike and I had some extra power so we decided to go on another sight seeing trip while the others were still in the water. We chose a destination a little but closer to Praia da Area Branca: Continue reading


Duisburg Landschaftspark Nord – the other sort of monument


October 3rd was German Reunification day. As it was a public holiday I had the day off. Supringly enough Michael had the day off too. But even more surpring was the fact that it was bright, sunny and warm. So we decided to go on a little trip. After some thoughts we decided to go to Duisburg’s Continue reading
