This weekend we decided to take a trip away from Pardubice to unwind and reset our minds after being cooped up in our little apartment for perhaps a little longer than is healthy. I sent Sinéad a message on Facebook on Wednesday saying we should do something this weekend and go somewhere new…..an hour or … More Weekend trip to Olomouc in Moravia.
Following on from the last post about Sedlec Ossuary, I quickly ran downtown to try and get some photos as the sun set over the old town in Kutna Hora.
