After taking their vows, Sarah and James Erck set off for Europe for a two-wheeled honeymoon. The Czech Republic was one of their favorite destinations. Find out why.
Reason # 1.
More inexpensive than the rest of Europe (other than Prague, of course,which is still pricey) – but with the beauty, history, and architecture of Europe.
Reason # 2.
Quality campgrounds with showers are common, inexpensive, and easy to find. There are often signs along the road pointing towards camping grounds.
Reason # 3
Amazing beer is available on tap at almost all campgrounds!! Enjoy 0.5L mugs of Pilsner for only 50 cents!
Reason # 4
Lots of secondary and tertiary roads to cycle on. This leads to beautiful relaxing cycling without the stress and smell of car traffic.
Reason # 5
Apple and walnut trees line the sides of many secondary roads – free snacks in the fall!
Sarah Erck Welle and her husband James got married, quit their jobs, and bicycled around the world.
In November of 2006 they left their comfortable corporate jobs and set out looking for adventure on the open road. One year later they returned, after traveling through 20 countries and cycling over 10,000 kilometers.
