There’s always a moment

Camping Bucek Tsjechie

Naar aanleiding van een triathlon in Karlovy Vary besloten we deze zomer op vakantie te gaan naar Tsjechië. Via Google maps kwamen we terecht op Camping Bucek. Bucek ligt ruim een uur rijden van Karlovy Vary en op 3 kwartier van Praag. Voor de volledigheid: het ligt op 781 km van Groningen. Bijna allemaal Autobahn kilometers waardoor het nog geen 8 uur reizen is.
