Tips for trips

Return to the campsite La Rocca, or tips for trips around

And here it is !! The weather in September wishes us, so we are planning a trip to the La Rocca campsite in Konstantinovy ​​Lázně again. This time already in full formation, even with his daughter. The last time we got there with bicycles was by train. This time we put it in full fire on bikes from Pilsen to the camp - 45 km. We are waiting for our daughter to get out of school, things packed and around 16.00 we leave.

A tip for a walking trip - a hike through the Brdy Protected Landscape Area

Martin and I have one thing in common. Our girls like to ride a bike, but they don't despise other outdoor activities either. In order to preserve the decor, we arrange a walking trip. Now straight to the Brdy Protected Landscape Area with a great destination, namely the TOK signpost with an altitude of 865 meters. Even now, as I write about it, my legs hurt, but what else. We have to snatch. The girls slapped their bikes last week.

With the family by bike to the Karolina campsite

For the past month, I've been covering the girls in all the places where there were some hills. Everything was heading towards this year's main goal, namely: Take a bike trip from Pilsen to the Karolina camp (Planá village) - 66 km. The girls asked how many meters we will climb. I read that around 750m they took quite a bit. But the ladies forgot that sometimes I lie ....

From the Lusatian Mountains to Germany to Oybin Castle

The time of covid was not over, but my friend and I still wanted to go somewhere on vacation. I was driving the internet and came across a beautiful caravan. I immediately fell in love with her according to the photos. The bungalow was located in the Beautiful Field. We decided to go out on the weekend, it's better for us in time. I had the reservation done in a few minutes and it was enough to wait a week and we could go.

Campervan in Slovakia - Across the Tatras to the Danube

The Covid madness continues successfully for the second year, and in my opinion, even those who invent it do not know the measures. Probably the goal :)). After the experience from last year, when we toured the whole Balkans without any problems, I know that we would be at peace by the sea, but the circus after returning to Slovakia is not worth it.

Bikers in Germany in Šumava - Bavarian Forest and Falkenstein National Park

Everything I made up about cycling activities came out this week. That's why I wanted to use the wool and finally ride the border bikes from the Czech Republic to Germany. As a destination I chose the German Šumava - Bavarian Forest National Park and a clear goal in it, namely Grosser Falkenstein with an altitude of 1315 m. However, I did not tell the girls that it will be "probably" only uphill.

For the first time on foot to Šumava via Čertovo and Černé jezero

When asked Míša if we would go on a hiking trip there and there, my answer was always: "Why would we walk on it? It will be faster on a bike" However, under the weight of her argument, I decided that the hiking trip would be nice. Understand the word argument, it inflated me so much that I had no choice .. :)). In addition, buddy David is also a hiking enthusiast. So we just got together and drove.

At the weekend by bike - direction Hromnické jezírko and Horní Bříza

I accidentally managed to plan a nice route around Hromnický lake near Pilsen. I added a few extra kilometers to the route, so that this bike trip was worth it and Kája (daughter), who seemed a little busy .. :)) The weather was good. To motivate the girls, I promise at the beginning that at the end of the ride we will go for a bath .. :) The whole route can be downloaded here:

Bikers on a trip around Hracholusky, or where not to go

Finally, a nice day was looming, so it was clear that we were going for a bike ride. The goal was to bypass Hracholuska, which would mean driving around 75 km. I wanted it to be a Challenge for my Míša, but I had no idea that we would all rake to the bottom of our strength, including my friend Péti, who joined us on the first part of the route ...

With bikes for the weekend to the camp La Rocca - Constantine's Spa

We have been going to the La Rocca campsite on bikes for a long time. Unfortunately, the weather didn't like it, but in the end it worked out. Originally we wanted to ride bikes straight from Pilsen, which is about 45 km, but somehow it didn't work out. My daughter had scouts for that weekend, so we had to escort her, and then it was too late. However, we enjoyed the bike ride (even with a swim) at the weekend anyway, but only then ..;)

Rating of the Bear Grylls knife from the cyclist's point of view

Finally, the weather came out for the weekend and we decided to ride our bikes and go roast our sandwiches. By the term "weather came out" I understand that we only got wet once :). On that occasion, I decided to finally evaluate my darling, namely the Bear Grylls knife, full name "Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Knife SE" ...

Kempervanem to Liptov - a pack in the wild

Four days off have come and no one will keep us at home anymore. We went where the senseless Covid measures allow us to. Our pack, which last year passed through the whole of Slovakia and grew to include a French Renault Trafic polish with a lifting roof. The circle has closed and the number of children has been added, so they are happier again.

Flooded ”Prague and where to go on a bike trip with children

Where are the times when types for cycling trips and everything connected with it, read only zealous riders in cycling jerseys and full equipment under the ass ... Or dreamers who hoped that they would one day be the zealots in the jersey. Probably most of this change was felt in Prague, where the wave of renting bicycles, scooters and everything that would move us came, without crowds in public transport.

An adventure into a gorge with waterfalls

If you want to experience a beautiful and adventurous Saturday or Sunday, bake the cutlets, put them in a backpack, put on proper shoes in nature and go on a trip just outside Tišnov to Trenck's gorge. You will have to overcome a lot of pitfalls and obstacles and you will also test your courage, for example when descending from a rock with the help of a chain or a climbing rope, which are attached to the rock with staples.

Christmas competition with the Vranovská pláž campsite

And we have a long-promised Christmas competition here, where you can win Vouchers for camping places to the Vranovská pláž campsite (Vranovská přehrada). This camp is one of the most visited and at the same time the best rated campsites not only in South Moravia, but also in the Czech Republic in general, so we do not have to introduce it in any particular way. Who was not in this camp, be the first to throw a stone ...

Autumn hiking trip to Krehor

The Hont region, which lies in the southern part of central Slovakia, offers many natural and cultural monuments. We are located in a seemingly inconspicuous southern part of the region, where there are less visited natural monuments, but perhaps more interesting for the wider area, because they are little "peeked" ..

Wandering around Slovakia - on bikes to the Devil's Gate

The motivation of this trip was to combine recreational cycling with a visit to beautiful mountain places. While wandering around Turcom, we discovered a pleasant village with an atmosphere of folk history, culture and architecture. In the distinctive village called Blatnica, we were interested in Blatnica Castle, but also in the nice folk houses with the original Turkish architecture. Nature completed the magical atmosphere of this place.
