Where I stayed
After the castle tour we did a brewery tour. The Eggenberg brewery was first established here in 1560 as a castle brewery. Today they make several kinds of beer through the use of computers, but also have a brew master who makes a yeast beer through traditional methods. The tour was a lot of fun thanks to our guide who was an older retired gent who had a bit of a struggle with English - he was quite entertaining. Erick and some of the others in our group did a tasting (two pints!) and were a little done in before lunch. After lunch most of our group did a rafting trip, but we decided to walk around town and do some shopping. Later we met up with Claire, Tamara, and Varsha for a feast at a local restaurant.
Yesterday when we arrived in town we did and hour bike ride through the forest and back into town. Erick had a pretty epic tumble into the bushes, but he was just fine except for a few scrapes. Brian was in his element - he loves being on a bike! After that we had a tour around the town with a quirky local woman, and then a nice dinner at a restaurant on the river with a view of the castle. We were watching for a sighting of the ghost they called the woman in white who is said to appear at the castle. If she is wearing white gloves it is good luck, black gloves are bad luck, and red gloves warn of fire. Sadly, we did not see her.
Tomorrow morning we are getting on a bus and heading for Prague!
