Photographer's Note

This is Saint Peter and Paul Cathedral in Brno, Czech Republic.

Its located on top of Petrov Hill, and can be seen from almost any point in Brno - its absolutely beautiful.

I have a funny story to tell about our first moments in this fine city.

We arrived by train, and thought we could simply navigate the city and find our Hotel without any problems. Well, you know that didn't happen now don't you!

Our Hotel is the white/cream colored building sitting directly below the Cathedral in this photo. We decided to "go all out" and treat ourselves to a upscale hotel for a change - trust me, we never do such things. It's not as expensive as you may think because its in the city of Brno, not Prague. It was easily the most luxurious hotel we ever stayed at, it was beautiful!!

We totally got lost walking the city with our heavy heavy backpacks, plus it was super hot and humid. We walked for what seemed like an eternity, and we basically circled the entire city like rats in a maze!

Of course we found the Hotel eventually, and when we walked in we realized everyone was wearing suits and ties, dress shoes, full of business-man-type clients.

The man working the Check-In counter took a long look at us, from head to toe, looked me directly in the eye and said...."Hi, you look terrible!"

lol

I guess all that walking around the city trying to find the hotel really made us tired :) I'm sure he thought we walked into the wrong hotel!

I'll add a couple of photo's of Brno in the WS too.
