This is our first time on the Eurail because we flew from Munich to Prague. Hurray!
Cesky Krumlov is a town I could live in. It's so homey! Not to mention vegetarian friendly!
The first night here, Phuong and I found a vegetarian restaurant where we were seating at a picnic table next to the river. The food was awesome, but the view and atmosphere was unbeatable, so we sat there for a couple of hours just taking it all in! Everyone is very laid back, and no one is in a hurry to get anywhere.
We went to the castle today. Apparently, in the 17th century, the royal family decided (mistakingly so!) that they were related to an Italian royal family, whose name they translated to mean "female bear." So, the royal family here became obsessed with bears and added them to their coat of arms and started breeding bears at the castle. They roamed the moat to fend off invaders! Today, the moat area is completely renovated and full of flowers and waterfalls and such... and there are still bears!
Tomorrow, Phuong and I are going to go rafting on the river that runs through the town. We'll probably also eat a few more 8 Kc ice cream
I'm so excited! We're really backpacking Europe!
(40 cents!). Other than that, we don't have much planned; this was the perfect stop for us to choose to relax before heading back off to big cities like Venice and Vienna!
