Czech inn time! 

After things went wrong with couchsurfing in Munich I felt the need to get away and just take a week to relax for myself. No couchsurfing, no whistle-stop tours, no rushing and walking for so long blisters appear with a backpack slung around me. I just wanted to slow down for a week and relax. …
