A Week In The Czech Republic #1

Czech Republic 1

At the end of February we went on a week trip to the Czech Republic with our family. We stayed in a house at the brink of a small village called Žacléř. The village lies in the North of the Czech Republic within walking distance from the border with Poland. I have been to the Czech Republic several times visiting Prague, Brno and the beautiful castle Karlštejn among other things. The bigger cities are looking stunning with their characteristic architecture, but outside of the cities you come across many abandoned buildings and houses. However a lot of these buildings are in a bad state and could use an overhaul. The houses are in all different colors- some are yellow, others are green or blue. It gives off a somewhat moody atmosphere, which I really seem to like these days. We arrived on a grey Saturday afternoon and went for a little walk. It hadn’t snowed much yet when we arrived (although the ski pistes were open). A little further up the road from where we were staying we found a little bit more snow which made me so happy. It was already more snow than we’ve had seen in the last three years in the Netherlands.

We went to bed early that evening, everyone tired from the 10 hour trip of that day. We woke up early and I looked out of the window to feel my heart pounding; I was looking at a beautiful white winter wonderland! I decided to make a quick cup of coffee and to drink it outside, something I really enjoy doing whenever it’s snowing. I loved to finally hear the snow crackle under my snowboots again. Later that day we hired snowboards and ski’s to go down to the piste for the first time.
