Memories From Europe – Part 5 – Czech Republic


Click on the above button for more "walks down memory lane".

Today’s "walk down memory lane" will be about our time in Czech Republic during our trip to Europe in May 2005.  After our time in Salzburg, Austria, we made our way to good friends of ours in Czech Republic.  On route we drove for a bit in Slovakia.  We arrived at the Czech Republic border around 10:00pm at night and that was the only border who gave us a hard time.  They had us wait there for about 1/2 hour and they were even on the phone at one point, thankfully they let us continue on.  Our friends had given us basic directions to their place, but we couldn’t find the village in which they lived.  We saw some people waiting at a bus stop, so my husband stop and went and asked them for directions to the town where our friends lived.  The two of the people lived in the very town and knew right where our friends lived.  What blessed words to hear.  We gave them both a ride to the town and they showed us right where to go.  That was just another time the Lord was so good to us on our trip!  We had a wonderful time visiting with our friends and seeing the sites around the area. 

Some neat birds! 

We took a train ride just to see a different view of the country and plus our children had not been on a train before.  In Czech Republic our children had a train, bus and subway ride all for the first time.

Just a quaint little street.

In Prague, a statue of John Huss

The neat clock in Prague, we were even there at 3:00pm and saw it do all the neat things.  The 12 disciples come out on the top of the hour and I can’t remember all what else this clock does.

My family and I on a busy street in Prague.

Here we just turned around and this was what we had been facing before.


All the red roofs!

I really enjoyed seeing the old architecture in Europe.  Just so beautiful!!  Our friend took us to his home town as well and we had a tour through this really old palace type place.  When our friend was young, he and his friends would go in the place using a"secret" door.  It was really interesting to hear about his adventures!  We had a great time with friends and saw many lovely sights.  We stayed a week with them.  Next week will conclude our trip to Europe.
