I have been meaning for a while to write about our recent trip to the Czech Republic as well as to Southern Germany. My cousin Hana lives in Moravske Budejovice, a city in the Southern Moravia region of the Czech Republic.

My husband and I were in Cesky Krumlov 2 years ago and also loved it. It was part of our River Cruise. I hope to go back to the Czech Republic and visit places where my families are from as well. Bohemia is top on the list as is Detva (where my father's father was from). This is how I found your blog; by typing in Detva. I also have family roots in Fulda, Germany which is south east of Frankfurt; the Helts. Also on my father's side are the Schellings from outside of Prague. Because of time limitations I was unable to venture out to find the village.Thank you very much for posting the pictures of Detva. I found your information very helpful. And I "hear you" about the police and government officials. It is the same in Cuba where we have been holidaying for the last 15 years in winter. It is a "throw back" from the communist way of doing business. It is VERY maddening. As the Russians have been returning to Cuba (for whatever reason; there were 2 Russian war ships stationed in the Habana harbour when we left this April) we do not feel comfortable there. Our Cuban friends do NOT like them. It will be very hard on them. Thank you once again. I will try to "come back" to see what you have posted next. Shirley-Anne
