Day 2 and I had my heart set on touring the city on a Segway. I've seen these things around Florence and thought that it would be a cool way to tour the city, if a tad nerdy. But I didn't care, I was having too much fun.

One a turnaround before my leave, one of the crew who had been to the Czech Republic before was raving about this place they went to. "You just HAVE TO GO to Český Krumlov!" As I knew that at some point during my stay I wanted to see the country beyond Prague, I boarded a bus to see what was so special about this town. And yes, whilst it was beautiful, unique and somewhat resembled an adult Disneyland, I had the feeling it's hype was slightly unjustified.

Views of the town, with the Vltava river winding throughout. (The same Vltava river that runs through the centre of Prague)

Bohemian "Grafitti"

Strange place for brown bears. Native to the Czech Republic.
Had a very interesting lunch too - a traditional Czech soup that had an insane amount of garlic mixed in. The garlic was so strong I had to take 3 Listerine pocket packs to feel comfortable taking to anyone, and after I got back at around 9pm, I still felt the garlic on my tongue.
The food I had on my holiday was very nice, but after my 4th beef goulash and 6th breaded herb dumpling I got sick of the cuisine. I made myself eat one traditional dish every day I was there, which varied from pork sausage, to pork chops, to pork roasts. The amount of pork I had missed out on living in Dubai was more than compensated on this trip. I was very satisfied.
There's still more photos to post, so until next time... safe flying :-)
