The Motherland

My sister suggested that we travel to Prague in 2018. My mother and her sister joined us. Our trip happened to coincide with the 100-year anniversary of our Czech family establishing a homestead in the U.S.

Backroads Castle Hopping

On day 6, we caught a tram toward Prague Hilton Old Town to meet our Backroads tour, stopping on the way at Café Imperial for breakfast. 

Our first day of the bike tour was 32 miles of "castle hopping." We started Hrubá Skála castle, then rode to another castle (Kost) for lunch. Beth encouraged us to stop and enjoy the pivo (beer) along the way. In the afternoon, some rain clouds in the distance provided a beautiful backdrop for a field of brilliant sunflowers.
