I have not been 'biking' for about ten years, not counting taking a beach cruiser down to- the beach.
When Dr. J and I were in Brno, Czech Republic, we went biking with our host family as a day trip.
I was particularly nervous as I probably had the least experience out of anyone in our group of eight adults (Dr. J is one of those maddening people who is good at EVERYTHING).
We drove up to the mountains to a town called Zdar nad Sazavou
Which is surrounded by National Forests
The views were stunning and riding down paths in ancient forests was magical.
We were right on the border between Moravia and Bohemia.
We stopped for lunch in a village called: Radostin
And ate at this 'Restaurant'
The food was AMAZING!
Broccoli, potatoes done only the way the Czech can- and preserved cabbage salad
Goulash! Served with potato pancakes.
Called 'Dumplings' this was a loaf like dumpling served with a dill gravy
Garlic soup is a popular dish which we enjoyed several times on our trip-
I would love a homemade recipe so if you know one please share!
Peaches and cream
The forest was amazing-
I felt as if I was inhaling the purest air possible
The weather was perfect
I am so grateful for this experience.
