Trip to Brno, see Spielberg and Jovovich


Original YT playout date: 8 July 2009
Duration: 37:22

Went to Brno, the “Austrian Manchester’. It is of course now not in Austria any more. It is generally regarded as the second city of the Czech Republic, and the capital of the region of Moravia.

Every youtuber aspires to be a budding Spielberg – but where does that name come from geographically? Possibly a number of places, but the most famous is this Habsburg political prison.

Not only Spielberg features in this film, but I also bumped into Milla Jovovich, as you will see, who kindly agreed to appear for my viewers.

Prague Vlog #3 – Choosing a flat


Original YT playout date: 28 June 2009
Duration: 30:09

This is an account of the third week, and the highlights include flying in, and seeing Prague from the air, and then a couple of visits to flats. We see three flats, the last of them is the one I rented.

I couldn’t even remember these others I looked at but I am really happy about the choice I made and also the owner turned out to be a good renter. At the end we were both sad not to have been able to carry on. But that’s all four years later.
Nevertheless, you can see here the evidence in the 28th (27:55) minute that we agreed that the TV would stay, but he took it away and said that’s what we agreed. But in fact I was happy not to have one. He did give me a work table instead. And I did a lot of good work at that table instead of wasting time watching TV.

Prague Vlog #1 – New paths of life for me. New job, new city.


Original YT playout date: 13 June 2009
Duration: 9:09

 

It’s the last day of a decade and fittingly thus is the first in a series called my prague vlogs, which show a time in my life which started actually 11 years ago and lasted about 4 years when I was regularly coming to Prague. The Prague Vlog series is more than one hundred parts and diarises that interesting time in my life.

 

Enjoy!

 

Original blurb: As I’m a lot more in the Czech Republic these days, and in honour of a youtube friend who used to do fantastic Prague vlogs when she lived here (see the channel Praguevlogg) I’m calling the series of films I’ll be doing while around this city my “Prague vlogs”. This is the first of them, a brief one just taking a peek at some of the touristy bits around the centre, the astronomical clock and the old town square with Tyn Church in the background.
