this summer we have been in the small hills in an area called valassko. our typical historical cottage style hotel was in the village of velke karlovice (close to vsetin), moravia, CZ.
besides seeing all the old guys and ladies my classmates became in 32 years after the school 😃, i especially enjoyed our two hiking tours. the first one was a very convenient one to the radhost / radegast mountain (1129 m), so all 16 of us could take part in it. there is a geographical anomaly on the radhost mountain, my dears! the two creeks/rivers which have their springs out there decided to go completely different ways: the first one flows into the baltic sea (via the odra/oder river when i remember that correctly), the second one to the black sea (via the danube river). strange, isn't it?
the second hiking tour was an short but steep tour to an nearby hill before the breakfast, so only 3 of us joined that 'expedition' 💃😇.
what else? well, on top of radhost mountain there was a chapel devoted of cyril (cyrill?) + metod (method?), who came in the year 863 after christ from the konstantinopolis area of eastern roman empire, were the founders of czech + slovak scripture.
..and yes, i was really, really happy my long time buddy petr from the not so far moravian city olomouc also came to visit me on his historical norton motorbike.
enjoy few pictures:
