We got -21 in the Czech Republic. It was difficult to get out of the car. We wanted to cry, but we overcame the cold and got out of the car to take some photos, go to the supermarket (we like going to supermarkets in the cities we know, where we get to know the local products and it's possible to get to know a little about the culture too!) no one spoke English and the products were not in English either. All labels in their language. We wanted still water but we couldn't identify the difference and of course we bought it sparkling. So we had to go back and choose another one in a different color.


On the way from the Czech Republic to Austria, I started to feel a lot of abdominal pain. I thought: my Jesus, there's nothing like a hospital in this place. What is that! Anyway, we always carry a small medicine kit when we travel. I mentioned this part just to reinforce that having health insurance and taking basic medicine and antibiotics is extremely necessary.


Břeclav (CZECH pronunciation bretslaf) is a town in Moravia, Czech Republic, about 55 km southeast of Brno. It is located on the border with Lower Austria on the Dyje River. The nearest town on Austrian territory is Hohenau. Břeclav also lies 10 km northwest of the Slovak border at Kúty and 100 km north of the Austrian capital Vienna.

In the 11th century a castle edge was established by Duke Bretislaus. The castle served as one of the medieval administrative centers of Moravia, later becoming a mansion. The opening of a railway to Vienna and Brno in 1839 (and subsequent extensions to a junction) represented an important event, bringing industrialization and population growth. The city is picturesque and worth a visit, but not with a cold of -21.


CURRENCY: The currency is Czech koruna. 100 Czech crowns = approximately 10 reais. (2015) Just divide by 10. I took euros and exchanged them at the exchange office there!

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST: Everything is very cheap, food, hotel and drinks! Eat well while spending little.

LANGUAGE: The local language is Czech. It is a completely strange language, with different accents and symbols than our Portuguese.
