The castle is still in use for few days in year as the Quin residence. If you so unlucky to get there along with the Quin most of the attraction will be closed. I was lucky, the Quin was busy in London and the entire castle was at my disposal. The castle is heavily guarded even the Quin is not there. I am not big fan of all "royal" stuff but there is not better way to see royal guard and ceremony of change of the guard. The castle itself with museums and churches makes it as a very interesting destination. Even struggling with jet-lag I enjoyed this.
Driving on the "wrong" side of the road is actually not that complicate. I just had to repeat to myself "mantra" turn right into left lane. Left turn is obvious since you do not change the lane. Much more challenging was to use to right steering wheel. It confused my feeling of car gabarites and I tend to get closer to left shoulder. Since there no shoulder on most of English roads it gets pretty dangerous. When I finally understood this I started to "link" myself to right side (middle line) and that resolved the problem.
Prague was patiently waiting in my destination list for long time. This year I decided that it is time to balance my wilderness adventure by something more civilized and Prague appeared as a best choice. I also figured out that I never been to Vienna which is in proximity of Prague, so second point was also defined.
The rest was relatively easy:
One week in Austria and one in Czech Republic.
After small research I figured out that Prague is also cheaper to fly to then any Austrian destination.
The brilliantly whitewashed villages and towns of inland Andalusia are called Pueblos Blancos. These are archetypal towns and villages that dot the steep slopes of the mountains, which extend north of Gibraltar. They occupy that part of Andalusia that is between the Atlantic in the west and the Mediterranean extending eastward. One of the most traveled routes through the towns is the road that stretches from Arcos de la Frontera all the way to Ronda in the east.Many towns have "de la Frontera" as part of their name, an ancient reference to the frontier towns that formed a boundary between Christian-held territories and Muslim towns and villages during the Middle Ages. Although the Catholic troops eventually triumphed, it is often the Moorish influence that makes these towns architecturally interesting, with their labyrinths of narrow, cobblestone streets, their fortress-like walls, and their little whitewashed houses with the characteristic wrought-iron grilles.
A few miles east of Telc is the big, busy town of Trebíc (TREH-beech, pop. 40,000), with another wonderful main square and, just over its river, the largest intact Jewish ghetto in the country. While Prague’s Jewish Quarter is packed with tourists, in Trebíc you’ll have an entire Jewish town to yourself. Trebíc’s Jewish settlement was relatively small. Though lonely and neglected, its remains are amazingly authentic. Orientation to Trebíc Three hours in Trebíc is sufficient—everything’s close by. The main square affords a funslice-of-local-life look at a humble yet vibrant community, while the near-ghost town across the river was once the Jewish ghetto. The two main streets that run parallel to the river (which separates the ghetto from the Christian town) are connected by a maze of narrow passages, courtyards, and tunnels.
