Wherever you travel to there is something new to learn. Either about yourself, a new culture or a new people. In any case traveling educates. Even if you just sit around the coffee-house and eat cake. When you look at the world with open eyes there is so much to discover. So here is what I learned while spending two days in Olomouc. Yours, Pollybert
1.) It’s depressing when all of downtown, especially the way from your hotel to the main square, is under construction.
2.) Getting upgraded from a room to an apartment is not so great when there is neither a socket to plug your phone next to the bed nor a lamp on the nightstand.
3.) I didn’t see one church where you could light candles.
4.) On the other hand I saw my first church with televised viewing in the back.
4.) There was a lot of graffiti everywhere including houses, letter boxes and so on.
5.) It is possible to ruin a ham and cheese toast. I ate the worst version here.
6.) I spent this weekend with reading, eating a lot and walking around a bit (doesn’t really differ from what I do at home). It makes absolutely sense though to travel somewhere and not really do anything. Doing nothing in another country feels special.
7.) You can order beer to go from a pub. That’s innovative!
8.) I haven’t seen any places to eat breakfast. So maybe they are not big on this? (see also #5)
9.) Usually a little bit of rain is not a problem when you are with friends and a colorful umbrella. On your own not even a colorful umbrella helps. It’s all just grey. What helps though is # 7 ;-)
