Honourable Mentions

“In June, 12 friends joined us to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and cycle with Great Explorations from Prague to Vienna.  We had a beautiful afternoon ride from Prague to Ceske Budejovice, enroute to Cesky Krumlov.   The ride took us across a beautiful farming plateau with working horses (Belgian or Clydesdale?), deer and tidy quaint farm homes.  Veronika, Niko, and Robbin led us along quiet roads with little vehicle traffic.  Rounding a corner, this gentleman was sitting watching the world…and the stream of bikes pass by.  I couldn’t resist and stopped and sat with him for a few minutes.  Then asked if I could take his picture.  I think you can tell from the grin that he was ok with it.  A great country, friendly people and a fantastic trip.”
Brad E.- Prague to Vienna
