A quick walk tot he train station and we were on our way to the Bohemian forest for the weekend! We had one very important stop on the way though, to the Pilsner Urquell brewery in Pilsen! The brewery was built in 1839 after the city became upset at rising beer prices. To this day, the brewery still uses the same recipe to make their golden beer! The tour we went on was informative and a lot of fun! The brewery site is huge, and we took a bus around and got off at each of the buildings. My favorite part of the tour was going down into the cellar and drinking beer straight from one of the massive barrels!
Once the tour ended, we had to rush to the train station to catch our ride to Stribro, where AH's mom would be there to pick us up and drive us deep into the forest where we would spend the next few days prepping for one helluva wedding! The train ride was, once again, a highlight of my trip. The boys had a couple beers and we played some music on IC's bluetooth speaker in our private cabins with the window down. The trains were mostly a group of small cabins inside each of the cars. The cabins had 6 seats, a door, curtains, phone chargers, and a small table! It was very relaxing, especially good for longer trips when you want to spread out a little! I also liked how quiet it was, and how I knew we weren't disrupting others with our music and laughing.
When we arrived to Stribro, AH's brother and mom were there to take us to the forest! After a little bit of a car issue (overheated engine) .. we hit the road! The drive was about 30 minutes through canola fields, so it was obviously gorgeous! We were so excited to get there and to see everyone, and to also get to work! The 'tent guy' was already there when we arrived and the boys got straight to work building it. My job was to take pictures.. so I got to relax a bit and just snap a few photos. After the tent was up and stable, the guys got to working on building the dance floor while MW, AH, and I started on some smaller things like decorations! For dinner BHW and IC grilled us all brats and we ate and worked well into the evening. I went to bed around 11 but the guys stayed up and drank beers while working on the sound system and rigging the tent with lights for the reception! The wedding day is quickly approaching and we are glad to be able to be here and help out!
