Jack and I agree that it is A) Difficult to choose and B) Czech Republic! Turkey! Israel! I guess if we could choose....ummmm it would be these three.
We did not post too much on our way back through the Czech Republic because our hosts were very magnificence and very thorough. We saw everything in their tiny town of Kopřivnice and learned so much of their Czech custom and food. We met Pavel and Lenka on a night train from Romania and on a whim (and after a bottle of white wine they shared with us) we decided to spend the last week of our trip in their home. It was one of our most memorable experiences by far!This is in Stramburg, after we hiked a trail to a cave where a child neanderthal skeleton was found, we headed up to this picturesque tower to watch the sunset.
Our fire in the old quarry! Pavel and his brother Michael are in the background playing their song 'Ahojte!' and Elena roasts delicious cheese over the flames (which Jack and I later determined to be Halloumi which we have done on the BBQ at home!)
This is the wild (WILD) hedgehog we ran into on our trek home through the dewy fields. I was in awe that he let us pick him up....Pavel's friend 'Peppa' says he knows him and sees him often in the area at night searching for bugs and slugs and whatever else hedgehogs eat.
Well I gotta return to school work, which is seemingly never-ending despite the fact I am part-time?!?!? Hmmmm....
Over and Out, Deeeeeeelilah
