Kutna Hora, Czeck Republic


This is the Sedlec Ossury, with bones from 60,000 people. 



Arranged in pyramids, garlands and even a coat of arms.





Looks like an ordinary church on the outside!

Sketchbook diary, from Slovenia to Italy


My two travel companions and I decided to leave the European Peace Walk at Lake Bled in Slovenia and take a bus to Trieste, Italy where it is sunny. We can start walking the Roman Road Via Postumia in Italy. It heads across northern Italy on the way to Santiago de Compestello, Spain. But we are only going to walk to Venice, this trip.

My sketchbook diary in Europe.






On May 23 I started walking the European Peace Walk, a trail starting in Hungary and going to Trieste, Italy. 



The first day of the walk we had breakfast in Hungary, lunch in Slovenia and dinner in Croatia. We wandered around looking for the trail in the woods and again in the fields. The countryside is lovely.

We are loosely organized as a group, but I did arrange to meet two walking companions in Budapest and we would walk together, was the plan.
