Emilja & Regensburg

Time to pick up the churned up maps, do away with sat nav and re-enter the Czech Republic, this time via its western border with Germany

A short drive to Nyrsko and we found ourselves on a good site with superb restaurant. (No stellplatz or wild camping allowed here in the CZ so you must use campsites)
We came a few days early in readiness for Emilja's arrival in Prague and after several days of rain and less than average sites we collected her from the airport amid lots of smiles and hugs

So plan was to travel back to Germany next day and spend a couple of days at a Therme as we knew she was a bit of a water baby at heart and we'd seen nothing of interest between there and Prague to be honest. The scenery is really good but the infrastructure is streets behind with little for eager 'sensation seekers'. 

So, after parking up at Bad Abbach Kaiser Therme we set off on the midday bus in to Regensburg

It all started quite well with a culture trip to the Cathedral

Then a tour of the small quaint back streets full of boutique shops for the girlies

I got quite bored with this and suggested to Emilja that we seek out a Brauerie we'd seen earlier...
Big smiles revealed the longing in her heart too and soon we were entrenched in the local drinking emporium thus ending the sensible part of the day...

Who's that drunk!

Prat! It got out of hand very soon afterwards
The flasks are 2 litres of dunkel and we had a few...

Nice to see chef getting 'time out'

Next day and seems only me has a headache..

Spa full of duddies but we can see why the older generation love these. A great way to relax all day

So to Prague......
