The Summer House

When Adam was a little boy he and his family spent some of their weekends and holidays with their grandparents in a summer house north of Prague. It is a near Litomeřice, a picturesque town in Bohemian Central Uplands which is a beautiful part of Czech republic with hills, orchards, street markets and one of the most iconic mountain in Czech history – Říp. Today it is mainly Adam’s brother Martin and his wife Zuzanna who take care of the cottage. And because Zuzanna, her friend and four children are spending the first week of summer holidays there Simona (for those of you who had not had the chance to meet her this is Adam’s mum), Adam and I have visited them there.

The day was like from a magazine (that is what we say in Czech), sun was out, it was boiling hot and we all stayed out for light summery lunch, followed by coffee and cake. Since we came to Czech (and trust me already few hundreds miles before that) Adam and I have started listing to each other what food we need to try again before we will set off. One of the thing, beside ice-cream, that means summer in our memories is water melon. And so we bought one by the road which weighted about 6kg and ate more than half of it. Well not only the two of us as you can see. There is not really much to say except for continuous repeating how nice afternoon we had there so here is few photos instead.

Oh the only thing I should add – on our way back home we stop at friends of Zuzanna and Martin who were giving away this very rare model. This is just a sneak peak so when we get back to Prague and do some more on it, you will see all the hidden gems of this unpredictable beauty.
