2016 - Day Six

Popuvky to

On Monday morning we hopped in the car and head to Bystrc to an oplatky specialist where I could buy a few boxes to bring home for us to eat, some for work and some for Claire's friend in Hythe.

Then we packed up. Posed for photos and were off.

Our first petrol stop was only a few yards up the road from Lilka's and as I had a lot of crowns I paid cash. I still had a lot of crowns. Our route back was pretty much similar to the way we had come except we strayed off the S20 to the north of Pisek and that's where things got messy. A brief ride up S3 then a left onto S19.

There were signs to say a bridge over the Vltava, Ždákovský most, was closed but we were certain there would be a marked diversion. As it happened there wasn't. Cars in every direction trying to work out where the heck to go. After about 30 minutes we reset the TomTom for Pribram and off we went in a northerly direction around a lake formed by the Vltava and a dam, to Orlik. The road here was cobble city idaho for miles and miles before we once again joined S19 to the other side of the downed bridge.

It was here we saw a marked diversion to Tabor, where we had just come from off S3!! We had another petrol and lunch stop just short of Pribram. I used up some change buying some drink and more wafers (oplatky) to take home.

Once on the D5 near Plzen we upped the pace to try and recover the lost 50 minutes on the diversion and the fact it was already 4.30pm at the lunch stop.

We arrived at Zum Grunen Baum about 1930! Here we had single rooms for €30 each complete with bathroom and wifi. Free parking outside.
