Czech Republic

South Moravian Region


Let the Journey begin!


The airline my husband Eric works for assigned him to work in Brno, Czech Republic. The airline gave all the employees the option to volunteer to go and to choose the time that they will want to stay in Europe. Anytime between May 2018 to October 2018.

Eric and I agreed to volunteer to go for the entire five months. It was going to be the first time for both to go to Europe. The airline notified the employees about going to Europe in March; they didn’t provide enough information about visas, or where we were going to stay, everything was in the air without concrete details.

We had to make several tough decisions in a short period. We had decided that we were going to minimalize the number of things that we owned and that we were going to move to another state after we came back from Europe in October. So, we started selling stuff on Facebook and Letgo. We also began to put everything else in boxes for the move after Europe. I had had foot surgery in April; I had to wear a boot and crutches for six weeks which made all the packing, the selling and all the situation more complicated.

Eric left on May 15 th , 2018. I had to stay home for a month to heal, have physical therapy and end the school year as a teacher in San Antonio TX.

Eric spent the first two weeks of work in Prague, Czech Republic and moved to Brno for the remaining time.

I joined him June 15 th , 2018. Two days before our first wedding anniversary. I arrived in Prague where my husband was waiting for me with a private driving service that took us in a two-hour drive to Brno. Our home in Europe for the next few months.

The Czech Republic located in central Europe.


Makes me Realize how much I haven't seen!



Dates: June and July 2018
Purpose of visit:
As I mentioned before, Eric was assigned to fly in the Czech Republic for five months. Most of the time during May and June, he was working almost every day, with only one day off in between here and there. Those rear days off were the days that we used to explore the essential landmarks in Brno. While Eric was working, I researched the internet for the most see in the Czech, and that sparked an interest to visit.

Kutná Hora

Date: Saturday‎, ‎October‎ ‎2018 6:00 PM
Purpose of visit:
In the last two weeks of our stayed in the Czech Republic, Eric was sent to Prague. We hardly had time to explore around because pilots where told that they would not be having any more time off for the remaining of the stay. So, we explored around Prague. I googled for places worth visiting nearby and found about this place. Also, ones after breakfast in the hotel, we came by one of the mechanics and he recommended it to us.
Coming Soon!

My Polish friend, the one I mentioned in the Poland section came to visit Eric and me this weekend. He had mentioned interest in this place since it is an important landmark in History. Worth the super short visit in order to increase our knowledge.
