I have always believed that traveling is good for our senses. It makes us experience things that we wouldn't normally encounter. In addition to that, it makes us understand things better and even make our views wider.
One of my dear learners, Megumi, went on a Europe trip with her friends. I'd like to repost her series here.
At last, we had arrived Europe! I was enduring to long flight...
I almost never sleep inside an airplane, but I feel high.
You see, finally our exploration will start!
I don't feel jet lag. Good job! My adrenaline. ;)
We went through the formalities at the Budget rent-a-car.
Our buddy is a Volkswagen Golf, stick-shift, left-hand drive car.
We had made a reservation for this car and first and last accommodation.
It's one of the pleasures ... finding a good, inexpensive accommodation.
Don't forget right-hand traffic.
Today's destination is Karlovy Vary.
According to long-Range weather forecast, it'd rain everyday in our travels, but it was a sunny day!!!
How lucky we are!!
We unexpectedly discovered brewery, of course we had brief detour there.
I looked wistfully at beer tap, but I couldn't drink.
(Because I'm the designated driver.)
But we were delighted to buy some beauty products made from beer.
I was driving to today's destination again for the sake of drink "delicious" beer!
Karlovy Vary is a big town different from my image.
There were rapid, narrow, curved and one-way roads, like in Atami.
I had a hard time to reach today's hotel.
Although, hotel was very convenient because it was located in the center; the room was spacious. Staffs were friendly.
Immediately, we went out to eat Czech food! We were very hungry because we didn't have lunch.
Wow, this is Czech beer! It's as good as I've heard.
Good taste, but cheap!!
I felt Czech Republic is a happy land!
Today's travel distance: about 150km
