It was a computerless holiday, 9 days away from my link to the rest of the world. And a nice break it was for the rest of the world no doubt but I will not do it again.
We had six excursions as part of our package. Bus and walk; bus and walk; bus and walk. By Thursday my knees were so bad I could hardly keep up but by Saturday I was doing not bad for an old fat man.
Our first excursion was to Vienna and I will come back to that when I get pictures better sorted. The second day we visited the Chateau Hluboka nad Vltava and Czesky Krumlov (which I will come back to later).
Tanya got a few pictures of the outside of the castle (below) but for pictures of the inside you need to go to the official website (link above in Bold). No pictures allowed inside the castle. And the rooms were dark. And our guide was in a hurry. The schpiel was all in Russian but I imagined it went like this:
And this room is either Princess Gabriella's Bedchamber or the Knights' Dining Room; I'm not sure which...or maybe it was both. If there was light in here you would see this and this and this and this and this...but since it isn't and you can't, we'll just move on to the next room which is either the kitchen or the library...
