home thoughts from abroad

Home thoughts from abroad is a new series on Travel Words featuring a single photograph that reminds me of a country visited and showing something that uniquely identifies it as being ‘abroad’.

One of the best things about Prague is the transport system. Buy a pass to cover how long you are in the city to make it easy to get around. Trams and the metro are plentiful and hopping from one to the other simple. Although  I prefer to walk around a city, we stayed a little way out of the centre and the weather wasn’t all that good in late September. Cold and wet. So I happily used trams to take me closer to where I wanted to explore.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Definitely abroad! 🙂
    When we went to Prague, we walked everywhere, even though it was January, and quite cold. But we were only there for three nights, so didn’t got too far from the centre.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. I liked the way the colours of the overalls the workmen are wearing matched the tram in this shot. It was quite wet when we were there, not so nice to walk in. I was heading for the metro on this day to go into the centre.

  2. Horray for a good public transport system. In the last few years, I’ve tended to prefer accommodation just outside the CBD and have begun to use buses, trams, etc more. It’s become part of the pleasure of being in another city.
