This is just a "Spur" of
the moment thought, but I might be interested in going on your tour in
June. It's a tough time for me, because it's my busiest time for
business... but I'm not getting any younger and maybe I should consider
Here's one of my
concerns. My family ties are in a little town called Havlikova Borova, in
the northeastern part of Vysocina. It's kind of north east of Havlickuy
Brod... but much smaller. It's actually the birthplace of some famous
poet...you may know who I'm talking about. Anyway. I really
want to visit the place. I paid a researcher to go and take pictures of
the family homes there that are all still standing. I just
don't know how close is it to Brno time wise. I see that you
have free time in Brno.. but could this be something I could do on a day
I don't speak Czech.
My grandfather was born in Borova...and my father spoke Czech, but they didn't
speak it at all around the kids. You know... new country... new
language. So I may be at a loss if I take out on my own. BTW..
I'm a 54 year old single woman. Pretty feisty... and still think I'm in my
30s.... and while I live in Austin... I'm originally from Stamford,
So can you tell me about
the possibility of visiting my grandfather's roots? That would really be
my main reason to go on the trip. Sure, I want to see the rest of the
country... but I would really love to see the little town where they were
born. I don't think there are any other living family members except
for a cousin in Brno...and he hasn't responded to my letters. So I
don't have anyone to really visit at this time.
Thanks for anything you can
tell me about the trip other than what is already on the web. I printed
that off and am looking it over. Who usually goes on these
trips? How many? Do you speak Czech? etc....
Thanks so much for your
