hmmm guess where i am...? :)
We went to Ceske B as a day trip from Prague, cos I wanted to fufil a long-time ambition to check out the Budweiser Brewery :)
As you know Budvar is the more tasty, sophisticated cousin of that crap known as Budweiser. :) It's darker, stronger and foamy.
Those of you who know me, know that I have a very low opinion of Irish muck and that American Budweiser & Miller ***. But thats because I know better. I used to live in Munich for crying out loud, I *know* my beer. Whilst in Prague I got re-acquainted with proper vodka, bootlegged some Absinthe (that stuff is 70% proof you know, and banned in Ireland), sampled some Staromeske and had plenty of 30p pints :) We came the closest to booze heaven on a trip to the Bud Brewery in Bohemia. But it was closer to hell as there was all that beer and we could'nt drink any of it!! Though Alan had a good time trying.. Keith, Colm and Alan were captivated by our guide, one of those mini-skirted East European bits of fluff you see with fat German businessmen ;). They were so endearingly pathetic with their tongues drooling, staying at the foot of a flight of stairs so they could look up her skirt. Anyway the tour was most informative, "and I must say", and we and a lovely Australian couple went to the Budvar Bar to taste what Real Budweiser was supposed to be like, before Anheuser Busch polluted it for the Yank market. Here's some pix of our beer-fuelled odyssey
Also, things were getting kinda dodgy in Prague, as the build-up & security for the IMF conference got more and more oppressive. So we figured it might be good to get outta Prague for a day.

Surburban buses all around the city. Very easy to get around more travel advice
