If it’s Wednesday it must be Prague.

Dear God, the alarm went off at 3-15a.m. Flight just under two hours, all on time; Thankyou B.A. And hello Prague airport, sunshine and 19 degrees: and lunch at the Penta Hotel.

Then away to the Prague Castle via the underground and admiring the trams and to the inside of the St.Vitus Cathedral, where the Cecilia Singers (Mary’s choir, not hers personally you understand!) will sing on Friday. These will probably be the shortest blogs you have read from me, (loud cheer, wasn’t it?) due to the crap wi-fi connection.

A very interesting guide called Jitka, who will be with us for the duration, gave us facts and information but read that first line above again and you’ll begin to realise why not a lot got retained in my exhausted brain.

Strange how things begin to haunt you because on the outside there were more grotesques, similar to Exeter. Anyway, the stained glass on the inside was spectacular.

I shall take more of these on Friday but my knee was playing up something rotten, even despite an old knee support, donated to me many years ago by a generator driver called Ken; BUY the Autobiography! So I ducked out a little early and took a taxi back to the hotel with two ladies and Karen (whose choir it is!) and then spent far too long trying to write this blog and download my pictures. Serious drinking time in the bar is being wasted; now you understand!

So, for the moment, while Mary is rehearsing within the hotel confines, I shall call a halt to this blog right here. And tomorrow brings the choirs first concert at St. Martin-in-the-Wall, and an evening on a Jazz Boat, till 23-00hrs (!) so tomorrow’s blog may arrive on Friday morning.


Quite a place, I think you’ll agree?

Thank you for reading, M & M 🎵🎶🙏😇🍽🚃

Malcolm and Mary

Malcolm worked for LWT. Mary worked for TRL. They live near Camberley in Surrey and did achieve their life long ambition to visit New Zealand. They have two daughters Laura and Hannah and two grandchildren Zach & Safi. Having done the big trip they then went to Canada, which was amazing. Scroll down it’s all here. They have visited Venice that they both so fell in love with in 2009 again. And recently returned to Lefkada for one week in glorious sunshine. Where next? Well, Canada is calling again in 2019; this time including Alaska. So stay tuned if you enjoy the ups and downs of travelling.

  1. Quite a place indeed..Mind you,one can get quite nice pictures at St Paul’s Cathedral in London as well. And no 3.15 am alarm call needed and free English speaking guides! Happy Wi-Fi… (and Jitka)

  2. It brings back memories of a wonderful weekend Jackie & I had in Prague a couple of years ago. Enjoy the rest of your stay and I hope all goes well for the concert.
