Lovely day for a bike ride— warm, sunny, but not too hot— through woodsy paths and little winding roads in the Czech Republic. Our destination: the castle Kunětická horawhich was near-ish to Hradec Králové.
We did make a pitstop at the recently opened lookout tower Rozhledna Milíř, which had a great view of the countryside.
Of course, we also stopped for lunch. I was happy to see the little restaurant we stopped at had veggie options— along with an English menu.
The castle itself was really neat— well restored, with a few key signs in Czech, German and English. I found the jail cell to be pretty intimidating— and I took a video of it.
And a tiny confession: while it was a lovely day today, I came home to my classmate’s back in the U.S. posting graduation photos on Facebook. If I hadn’t gone overseas, I would have been able to walk with them.
On the other hand: I spent the day biking around with friends and taking photos of a castle. Life is really pretty good, and I didn’t have to spend the money on the cap and gown.
