- Freedom is hard won, but easily lost. 5 days ago It's late in the evening and I should be in bed, but I realize that this is an important day and I really should write a blog post.The 27th June is a day when the Czechs remember the victims of communism. Earlier this year I watched as a group of tourists posed in front of this memorial without any...
- Czech Castles - Pernstejn 1 week ago The journey to Pernstejn castle is a delightful one. It takes you through the beautiful wooded valleys of the Moravian Highlands and then suddenly you see the proud medieval fortress perched high on a large rock.This castle was so well-sited and designed that it was never taken by an enemy in any...
- Salamander, salamander 2 months ago Okay, I know it's a rubbish photo, but given how secretive the fire salamander is I was delighted to see it and manage to fire off a photo before it disappeared.Just under four weeks ago (it feels much longer, given all the things I have been up to in the meantime) I was in Czech Paradise (Cesky...
- Mikulov - Home of Wine 2 months ago Mikulov is one of my favourite Czech places. In some ways it is like Cesky Krumlov, but without the tourists and with wine. It is in the south of Moravia on the Austrian border.Mikulov sits at the end of the Palava Hills, which stand out against the surrounding plain like the back of a monstrous...
- Prague Transport - Trams 2 months ago As I said in a previous post trams are my preferred form of public transport in Prague. The metro is very limited and doesn't have the advantage of taking you past the city's sights. You can also get a much better idea of the layout of the city from a tram seat. There are a lot of tramlines, but...

One of the coolest things about Zoe's blog is that we became friends because of it. I was blogging in Prague and she was blogging in South Bohemia. I can't say I know of a single other English-language blogger in South Bohemia. She writes about incredibly interesting stuff because she brings such a varied background to it: puppeteer, NGO manager, writer of great books, and tourism organizer to name a few. South Bohemia is lucky to have Zoe advocating for it. She brings new people to a special corner of the world through her writing and work.

How exciting to move to South Bohemia and to set up a blog bringing that corner of the world to England

A lovely blog, revealing a real warmth for both the people and the place, and full of information about life in this little known area in the middle of Europe.

Always discovering the interesting details about Bohemia, the things we're too busy drinking coffee to find out about. She has a real feel for the place but with an English perspective. Good reading.

Great blog devoted to the Czech Republic, particularly the often over-looked areas outside of its capital city - with fascinating insights in to the culture and nature of various corners of the country. Occasionally poignant, frequently funny and always beautifully written.

I stumbled upon this blog purely by chance, and I find the posts about life in the Czech Republic from a British perspective a very enjoyable, well-written, and well-informed read.

I particularly enjoy reading this blog because it gives an account of life in rural Czech Republic where there are of course fewer expats. One of my favourite blog posts (on any blog I have read) was written some time ago but is so thoughtfully written, the post gives an account of a train journey to post Velvet Revolution (then) Czechoslovakia that few Westerners would have experienced. From this post I really got the feeling that life for Czechs was going to change but their history was always going to be there with them in the background. This post and many others evocatively convey what is happening in the Czech Republic from someone who knows the country and particularly South Bohemia very well.
