We drove our car 3,300 km from Minsk, Belarus where we are teaching to see the cities, Christmas markets and quiet snow covered countryside of Belarus, Poland, Czech Republic and eastern Germany.
The majority of our 3 week tour was spent in friendly Czech Republic. We have long anticipated our eventual trip to Prague and the Czech Republic. It did not disappoint. We found beautiful Christmas markets, delicious beer, comforting food, and interesting architecture. It was cold, but we made the best of it. We recorded many 10,000 plus step days on our Fitbits.
We had a fun Christmas Eve dinner near our hotel (Hostal) at the French restaurant Chez Marcel. The waiters were a lot of fun. We took an Urban Adventure tour of Prague and had a cooking class with Tereza and Pavel with Prague Cooking Class. We visited the Communist Museum that exhibited the bleak life under communism in a Soviet Bloc country, and included some very emotional exhibits about the Prague Spring revolution in 1968 that was crushed by the Soviets. Freedom finally came with the peaceful Velvet Revolution following the fall of the Berlin Wall in Germany.
