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.

The Eden Crown hotel is located in the center of Eindhoven. A big advantage of such a location is that it’s easy to enjoy the restaurants and bars in the inner city. Especially with good weather like today. Unfortunately the hotel invites to leave it…

Indian Chinese restaurant Nieuw China Utrecht

During my one night stay in Hotel Ouwi I went looking for a nice restaurant in the Bildstraat. I was quite hungry so I decided to go for the Chinese restaurant. After entering I noticed the enormous mirror on the ceiling. A nice girl asked me to sit wherever I would like, so I did. Enjoying a decently priced drink, I decided to go for a combined menu with Tjasp-Tjoy, Foe Jong Hai, Bami and sate. The Chinese Tomato soup I had before was nice but not more than that, just like the main dish. As I expected, the quantity was very good. I had to eat a little too much to clean the plates and the food was good enough to make me ;). For 18 euro’s I had a large and healthy meal with soup before and two drinks during my meal.

I give restaurant Nieuw China a 7.

Hotel Ouwi Utrecht

The next try in my search for a good hotel in Utrecht was succesfull. Hotel Ouwi is located near the city centre of Utrecht, which makes it very good reachable by public transport. Nice restaurants can be found near by in the Bildstraat. The hotel itself does not have a restaurant. For 79 euro’s a night, including city tax and a breakfast, you’ll have a room for one person.
