The Dawgs Travel Diary: New Year Morning

His Royal Orangeness Karl Willem and PA/PR Gromit greet you a Happy New Year from the Budejovicka Gate of their new favourite old town. Welcome, Tuloy Po kayo, paki-iwan tsinelas sa labas

But first, the dawgs must have an energising breakfast as today we will show you around our Czech 'hood.

HRO Karl Willem shares a banana cake with The Nashman while PA/PR Gromit looks up what's happening in and around Czechia.

HRO Karl Willem and PA/PR Gromit are among the town's early risers.

Yes, the dawgs are in Sexy Krumlov.

The dawgs were a bit disappointed that our friendly neighborhood sausage stand has not yet opened for the day.

HRO Karl Willem and PA/PR Gromit and a relic of the East Bloc. A very very very important relic!

It's a fully working Trabant!

HRO Karl Willem and PA/PR Gromit raise their feet on the river bank.

What up with the pow-leeees?

The Dawgs Travel Diary: New Year's Eve in Sexy Krumlov

Would you like to try on the local windproof Gore-tex?

His Royal Orangeness Karl Willem and PA/PR Gromit, and The Nashman are so happy we get to celebrate New Year's in Sexy Krumlov.

We love the spaced out barn animals. Dude, we've been awake all night. That Jesus baby kept crying all night..then some shepherds came, then some wise men, then they started singing carols..

HRO Karl Willem and PA/PR Gromit chilling with the frozen fountain.

The castle complex and the Vlatava beginning to solidify as the night cools down...

..but no worries as HRO Karl Willem and PA/PR Gromit found a cozy place for us to have a simple New Year's eve dinner, surrounded by photos of dead aristocrats.

We had a starter of buffalo mozarella and tomatoes.

..and tried out the carbonara. This pizzeria has been around for centuries.

HRO Karl Willem and PA/PR Gromit then have the customary walkabout.

It's a beautiful city, no?

HRO Karl Willem and PA/PR Gromit think this is one of the most beautiful cities they have ever visited. It's very small, it's got a river, it's got art, it has got loads of cafes, it's got lots of beautiful people.

To warm us up for the festivities, HRO Karl Willem and PA/PR Gromit serve a shot of Czech spirit.

...then it's off to the town plaza to dance the night away with the natives. was also bring your own fireworks. There was a chinaman who brought out one launch pipe and kept reloading and reloading with very impressive fireworks. We were really surprised and awed. It was a scene straight out of Coneheads.

We loves that it's like the Pelefins. Health and safety? Whut's that? Let's play with fire! The Nashman's first kiss for the year was from a very charming and pretty Scottish lass. She is also an actress (they just filmed this surreal scene of her in a wedding dress crossing the freezing Vlatava.)

..then off to an underground swing party!!

HRO Karl Willem had a blast.

This being Bohemia, the stench of alcohol, sweat, and cannabis hung in the air. It was magical. Plus, The Nashman met a very seductive and stoned French girl. What is it about stoned philosophy major French girls that make them so irresistible?
