This weekend we decided to take a trip away from Pardubice to unwind and reset our minds after being cooped up in our little apartment for perhaps a little longer than is healthy. I sent Sinéad a message on Facebook on Wednesday saying we should do something this weekend and go somewhere new…..an hour or … More Weekend trip to Olomouc in Moravia.
Going to a Moto GP race is always a bit of a spectacle and this year was no different. It’s the highlight of the year for me as it’s such a fun way to spend a weekend, I really can’t recommend it highly enough, especially the Brno round. There was a massive crowd this year, … More Moto GP Brno 2014 AKA the best weekend of the year.
Our Summer trip to Znojmo was a really nice experience, particularly the vineyard tour we were thrilled to receive. The town itself is really beautiful with narrow cobbled streets and a compact layout that makes it easy enough to explore in the best part of a day. While exploring the town we came across a … More Tainted Majesty
The Moravian town of Znojmo has some rather lovely windows. If there was a Czech league table for lovely windows, Znojmo would be right up there.

Instead of booking in advance and staying in some hotel nearby we decided to rough it and stay in the campsite next to the track. I remember over the years of watching Moto GP on Eurosport the commentators speaking of the madness of Moto GP campsites. I didn’t think too much of it, I mean … More Moto GP 2013: Brno, Czech Republic (The campsite)
Best……weekend…..ever! Our first experience of a Moto GP race was totally and utterly immense. We saw Valentino Rossi…..WE SAW…VALENTINO….ROSSI! And Jorge Lorenzo and Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa, and Matt and Azi from the BBC! I started watching Moto GP back in 2000 when Rossi made his debut in the then 500cc class and I’ve … More Moto GP 2013: Brno, Czech Republic (Saturday)
A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of visiting the beautiful town of Znojmo in Moravia. We went during the classical music and wine festival (Is there a better combination?) and were blown away by an awesome private tour of one of the vineyards there. The town of Znojmo is quite picturesque indeed … More Znojmo: A model town

We were heading down with two of Sinead’s friends, staying in a guest-house and visiting some of Veronika’s friends. Turns out that friend’s husband just … More Heaven grows on vines
