Enjoyed everything in Prague except smokers

I search for the realness, the real feeling of a subject, all the texture around it…I always want to see the third dimension of something…I want to come alive with the object ~Andrew Wyeth

Prague is a beautiful city, spending a couple of days was not a big issue. We were not lucky enough to have sunny days but at least it was not snowing or raining 😁. That’s fair enough. We were saved from the first snow which they in the last week. Walking on cobblestone roads in snow wouldn’t be easy.

Alcoholic or non-alcoholic beerany guess?

Approximately 5,400 people die each year from lung cancer in the Czech Republic. Lung cancer epidemiology and prevention is one of the top-priority health problems in the Czech Republic. The incidence is one of the highest in the world especially for males; in females it is continuously increasing. Primary prevention is available but difficult to implement, particularly non-smoking. Reference: Lung cancer incidence in the Czech Republic: a time-trend study

A mid week walk

For what it’s worth… it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit. Start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you’ve never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start over again. ~F. Scott Fitzgerald

Yesterday was my birthday and as a gift from the universe, the sun was shining ☀ . We decided to keep it simple and planned a couple of hours hike with some picnic food. There were lots of butterflies of which some were quite bold. On our way up the top we chatted with an elderly couple (age 75+) with whom we got acquainted during covid-19 lock down in 2020. The gentleman had walking poles but they both were in good shape. Walking on steep trails is not easy for their age. The lady chatted with us and told us about her hospital stay due to some breathing problems she got recently. I am sure there is nothing serious as she is able to hike three times a week. After car parking there is a gravel road (toll road) in steep terrain all the way up to the post. The elevation difference for them was from 260 – 600 m. We need no formula to know how fit they both were.

For Jo’s Monday walk

Never take good weather for granted

Six Word Saturday – The title (😀)

These images were taken on the day when our beloved sun was shining. The weather forecast for today was “uvanlig kaldt” which means unusually cold. Temperature dropped down to 11 degree c as it is grey and cold with good amount of rain in past two days. Anyways, we have faith and hope actual summer days are approaching soon.

Hope you all are having a fantastic weekend.
