  • Don't you just love Czech graphics! 1 week ago I found this bag for the disposing of dog poo (it comes with a cardboard scoop inside) hanging on a post in Vimperk. Of course I had to have a copy for my dog-owning sister. The graphic's humour  is so very Czech. As an added bonus on the reverse of the bag are instructions and this the company's...
  • About Czech Hotels 2 weeks ago For my business I stayed in hotels around the Czech Republic and I put customers into hotels. And I tried to stay in the hotels before recommending them to my customers (it was a hard job but someone had to do it). The reason I did this is that the standard of Czech hotels tends to vary and it is...
  • What are the Roots of the Golem Legend? 3 weeks ago The Golem legend, although it refers to the real historical figure Rabbi Loew, didn’t really appear until the 19th century. It seems to draw on or at least play to two separate traditions - the Jewish golem tradition and the Slavic folk story of the clay child. In the latter a childless couple...
  • Burcak - dangerously gluggable. 2 months ago  For a brief period in early Autumn stalls appear at the side of roads and outside supermarkets. Plastic barrels and bottles stand on market tables and beside them in a foldable chair sits a young woman (usually) studying at her mobile phone. A sign states Burčák, the alcoholic beverage...
  • Closing the Business 2 months ago Today the last of my tours ended. The final set of customers, a group of walkers from Yorkshire, returned home. I have really enjoyed sharing my love of the Czech Republic with my customers. What is more I can honestly say that almost without exception they have been fascinating people to meet....

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.
