ADMIN: Valtice trip
- Hello everybody,
The current state of play with the planned trip to visit Todd in Valtice is
Irena, Otto, Rachel, Simon, Martin J., Zdenek, Vlasta, Kostas and his wife +
yours truly have
expressed a strong interest in going down there for the weekend of 13/14
On the phone, Todd has assured me that nobody will be without a roof, he can
fit those who
are willing to rough it into his shop and back room and he has a large tent
which sleeps 4-6 people.
Cosy. Apart from that, the best opportunities for accommodation are
apparently in the nearby
town of Breclav, which is a CZK 150 taxi-ride away, and in Mikulov. More
details on these will be forthcoming shortly.
As for transport, Todd tells me the express train from Prague is a nice way
Some sample times:
Hlavni nad. 12.12
There is also the bus.
Other times can be found on the Idos Universal timetables:
(from www.seznam.cz follow "cestovani" then "jizdni rady, zeleznice a
autobusy" then "jizdni
rady" then "Idos Universal")
Kostas has offered a lift in his car for a couple of people on Saturday 13th
March and there is also Zdenek's offer of a lift from Brno.
Todd can book a wine cellar for Saturday with a minimum of five people. He
says that if you
are willing to cough up a couple of hundred crowns, there are some excellent
available. For my part, while this is a pleasant little extra, I do not
consider it the most
important thing and Todd says there are other ways for us to enjoy ourselves
Please direct any corrections to the above info or any queries on the trip
to me privately by e-mail or phone (0603 942 957). I would be especially
interested to hear of your preferences for time of travel (Friday or
Saturday) so we can maybe get a group of us to go together. Will do my best
to coordinate and keep you all posted.
Have a nice long weekend.
