Motherland Tour II/ Czech Republic

First Post of 2015!! Happy New Year !

First of all, I have been delinquent in posting because of the painful switch I am currently making from Aperture to Photoshop. I think that it is time to take the plunge, now that Aperature will no longer be supported. So Photoshop has had a strangle hold on all my “photo time”….so I may now just try to throw lots of pics and less text up on posts just to get them out.

But I digress….

As mentioned in my prior Motherland Tour Sicily series, I am an American expat currently living with my family in Switzerland.  One of my goals while we are living in Europe is to bring my children to visit the places where their ancestors were born.  Recently I had the opportunity to visit the Czech Republic with my family to visit the homelands of my children’s Great-Great Grandparents. The trip was especially  exceptional because my father was able to join us from the United States on our journey, a journey that he and my mother had taken ME and MY siblings on in the mid 1970’s (then known as Czechoslovakia, behind the “Iron Curtain”) when I was a boy.

First stop..Valasske Klobouky…where a surprise party of extended (way extended) family awaited us on arrival! Some of these people I had met 37 years ago!!!
