About this blog

I’m an Irish chap currently living in Hobart, Tasmania and loving it. This place is special and I still have so much to see! You’re probably wondering what living in Hobart has to do with the name Czeching Out? I started writing this blog back in early 2013 when I moved to the Czech Republic with my then girlfriend. We spent two years living in the beautiful town of Pardubice, which was a great base from which to explore the rest of the Czech Republic and farther afield throughout Europe.

I’m very much into my photography and have enjoyed exploring different aspects of it over the past few years. It’s resulted in a few paid gigs here in Tasmania and I’m hoping to keep improving and work on more projects with interesting people over the coming months.

Usually I won’t write a post unless I have a series of images to illustrate it as I feel the waffle I often write doesn’t quite do the location justice. I’m working full time at the Tasmania University Union and it’s been awesome so far. Looking forward to the new year and all the fun and challenges that will come from that.

Thanks for reading!

  1. James, came across your blog and am quite interested in talking to you about some freelance work. Can you get in touch with me?

    I too am in Pardubice

  2. Dear James
    My name is Joe Pinzone and I’m casting an international travel show about expats moving abroad. We’d love to film in the Czech Republic and wanted to know if you could help us find expats who have moved there within the last 15 months or have been there for 3-4 years, but recently moved into a new home. The show documents their move to a new country and will place the country in fabulous light. The contributors on the show would also receive monetary compensation if they are filmed. If you’d like more information, please give me a call at 212-231-7716 or skype me at joefromnyc. You can also email me at joepinzone@leopardusa.com. Looking forward to hearing from you.

  3. Hey James,
    I’m Irish and just moved to Prague, and I was wondering if you could help me out with some Irish communities around here or something that you may have encountered while you were in CZ?!


    1. Hi Ciara,

      Unfortunately we didn’t get into Prague too often other than to go to the airport so I didn’t get a chance to socialise much there. Expats.cz is probably your best bet. One of my former colleagues is Irish and she works in the Prague office so I could put you in touch with her maybe. It’s a very multicultural city though so you should have no problem meeting people of all backgrounds which can be fun 🙂
