... for the beer history (and other history) of Plzen.
After Michael had given us a great run down on the city, we headed off.



First stop was the Brewery for Pilsner
Urquell, one of two massive industrial facilities in Plzen, the other being the

Got back to the van to make our way to Prague, only to find our battery was completely dead so unfortunately Skippy wouldn't start. Took a ...

... shops and cafés. We've today seen hang gliders, gliders and, landing in an adjacent field a few minutes ago, a hot air balloon. Another hot sunny day and last night I collected my first mossie bite. Ten minutes after draining my shoulder it floated into the beam of my torch. A delightfully executed up swinging backhand Federer-style with my electric racquet resulted in a satisfying crack, flash and sizzle and the slight whiff of chargrilled ...
