Czech Republic

We Were Blue Dot

We only stayed one night in the Czech Republic which lay between Austria and our destination, Poland.  Road tolls were levied by the purchase of a vignette for €17 which covered any vehicle for ten days.  The local currency was the Czech Koruna (29 CZK= £1) but everywhere accepted €s.

We stopped at a sprawling campsite by a lake near the town of Brno.  There were holiday chalets, hundreds of tents of all sizes, some caravans and a few camper vans.

There were several cafés and food stalls but it was difficult to judge who sold what. The one we chose offered spare ribs and salad.  The meal was very tasty and cost €30 for the two of us, including beer and wine.

Spare Ribs Czech Style
The Bar Staff Were Not Very Attractive

No-one spoke more than a few words of English but everyone was nice and friendly.  We plugged the camper into the adjacent electric point but there was no power; we gathered we had to go back to the reception (half a kilometre away) to request a connection.  Our neighbouring camper saw our predicament and hopped on to his bicycle and ten minutes later a staff member appeared and turned on the power.
