Wondering around the streets of Český Krumlov we stumbled across lots of local street artist's work. We are thoroughly in love with how witty some of the pieces were, interacting with the streets imperfections and beaten up walls. Can you spot a dinosaur? I love the fact that the man on his way down the stairs can't see anything from his angle and thinks we just really love the tatty corrugated metal ha. Whey... Mexican wave :o)This one is very fitting as when in the Czech Republic we had so many thunder and lightning storms that were like nothing we'd ever seen before... Fork and sheet lightning combined :o)
Hello!! Eeeek it's been a while! As most of you who
follow us on twitter probably know, we went off on our hols to the Czech
Republic for 10 days. When we go away we like to go completely internet cold
turkey...partly because we're terrified how much our phone bill will be and
partly because it's just nice to have a break every now and then! We spent
almost a week in Prague and then travelled by train down to Český Krumlov
which is a MAGICAL little town we visited when travelling 4 years ago. The
architecture is like something out of a weird fairytale, the castle tower is
surrounded by bears...yep bears! And the river which runs through the town is
stunning and always full of rafters braving the rapids. If you can get a
good seat in a riverside bar it's VERY entertaining...lots of capsizing! We did it 4 years ago but were too wimpy this time!
Oh...and so back to the title of this post, we got engaged!!! :o) :o) :o) After seven and a half years together Jam decided he liked it and wanted to put a ring on it! The poor boy was apparently carrying the ring around for days trying to decide where the perfect location would be. He did very well, Český Krumlov is such a magical romantic place close to both our hearts. He picked a lovely spot in a quiet park by the river, under a willow tree! I was also totally blown away by his ring choice! Bought in the Brighton Lanes (where my Mum got her wedding ring!) it's gold with a pink sapphire with two little diamonds...a total Princess ring! I'd never really given much thought to what sort of ring I'd like other than I knew a coloured stone would be lovely. This is so me it's ridiculous. The boy did good! To commemorate this exciting event we almost immediately purchased two matching 'I heart Český Krumlov' t-shirts...I never said we weren't total losers! Our accommodation was owned by a crazy painter, performance artist and drag queen...sadly we didn't get to meet him though! Český Krumlov is full of amazing street art like these paper pigeons which we were a tad besotted with. You noticed so many different things every time you walked down the street.
