Friday, it’s all over but no fat lady!

The plan was to visit the Music Museum, but after such a late night that got shelved and a more leisurely start to the day occurred.


It had been a great evening and we did get a fast taxi ride back to the hotel. Must do the river trip in daylight sometime. So, away to the square where the famous clock was being repaired and Mozart’s piano, which should have been in the museum, (report back from those who went) was away in London, so a lose, lose situation all round, whichever way we had gone!


At least with the poster outside the church of St.Nicholas, we knew we had the right venue! And once more the interior was magnificent.


Terrible gag, sorry couldn’t resist it. Another almost full house. An excellent and again well received, hour long performance, and then back outside in the thunderstorm for a quick refreshing coffee. Then off again in a taxi but this time in real Friday rush hour traffic back to St.Vitus Cathedral.


Here the choir just excelled themselves beyond measure or description. Not only did they sing for the six o’clock service but also then gave a short concert afterwards. Truly a magnificent effort by all concerned and particularly the organ playing of Stuart McSweeney.


A short walk down the hill to a pre booked restaurant, for a meal with an accordian player accompanied by a man and a stick, with a cymbal on top, (vozembouch!) which Mary had a go at!


So, that’s it, very brief! Standby for Switzerland and Zach’s 8th Birthday!

See you all! Thanks 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. Hi M&M, I’m late to the party as usual! First of all a very belated “Happy Birthday” to Mary. 🎉🎊🎂 Prague looks great, we will put that on our bucket list. Congrats Mary on the success of the choir. The church is magnificent. Shame about Mozart’s piano! It reminds me of the time we went to see the guys from Antique Archeology (programme on Sky) in Iowa and Nashville …….. they were in the UK recording programmes here!!! Hey ho. Have a safe trip home. Sandra xx PS: Missed you last night at the presentations! We are off on a steam train today for lunch to celebrate Si’s birthday!

    1. Have a great birthday lunch! Sounds wonderful. One of the choir was a complete model railway enthusiast and had magazines with him if stunning model steam train layouts. Just been to the YCC exhibition, brilliant! Loads of little helpers there for Simon. Oh! And just found this:

      Long considered one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, Prague is the historic cultural, economic and political center of the Czech state. This “Mother of Cities” traces its history back 1100 years. It is one of the most visited cities on the European continent. Prague has a historical look and atmosphere, with its labyrinthine medieval cobblestone streets winding around extraordinarily beautiful churches and palaces of all architectural styles. UNESCO includes Prague’s historic center in the list of World Heritage Sites. Prague Castle claims the Guinness Book of World Record’s title as the world’s largest ancient castle. Source:
