On the Wing

Flying in the face of widespread left wing extremism!

Prague rocks!

Posted by Exile on October 21, 2006

Early morning - Wenceslas Square.I am home from The Czech Republic. A terrific holiday where I visited Marienbad, Prague and Karlsbad. Three beautiful towns. There is a sort of optimism there now. With entry into the EU and free from the shackles of communist oppression, CZ is beginning to recover some of it’s former glory.
The Hungarians took the world pipe smoking championship. The guy smoked for 3 hours and 3 minutes before his pipe finally burned out. I wasn’t even close. They came from all over the world. Mexico, Russia, Japan and the United States, and almost every european country you can name. I met old friends and old combatants. We had a ball.
The sun shone throughout the holiday and it was a trip to remember. I am definitely going back to Prague.

I hope everyone has been behaving while I was away. I have a lot of e-mail to catch up on, not least from the 910 group (404 messages!) and some personal stuff to get through.

Damn, my holiday was great, but it’s good to be home.

    Hello and thanks for the opportunity to read and post on your blog.

    I’ve just posted an article related to travel tips for seniors on my blog and I thought maybe you’d be interested in reading it. Here is short preview of some of the areas I covered:

    – Prefer a backpack on wheels instead of a suitcase, you could pull it behind you when your back hurts or you are exhausted.
    – Consider checking your bag in with the airlines, because it would become an unnecessary burden to be dragged all over the airport or the city if you are going to have a short visit.
    – You could stay outside the city, in a hostel maybe, because it is cheaper, less crowded and the air is much fresher, but you have to walk or use the transport more, to get in the city or to the station.
    – Most museums, some concert halls, railways, airlines, bus lines, ferry and shipping lines have a discount policy for seniors.
    – Electronic devices are useful but sometimes they can give you a lot of headaches. You could help yourself with a micro-tape recorder to record your notes. It would be easier than to write and you would put them down on paper later, to share your notes with your family.
    – If you bring a camera with you to keep the beautiful images alive along the time then make sure you know how to handle it or you might fail to record them not only on that camera but also in your eyes.

    For more resources on visiting Europe you are welcome to visit my blog, where you can also get acces to some excellent maps of Prague and Prague hotels, together with information on restaurants adn rent a car services.

    Best regards,

    Michael R.
