  • From Tanya Venter to Friends of Czech Greenways (Sept 1998)
    Just to thank you for your information on the Greenway trip in the Czech Republic. Unluckily I could not order your maps from you as I live in South Africa and did not have the time to get the postage, and could not find them at the beginning of my cycling trip. I managed to find parts of your trail between Cesky Krumlov and Prague and loved it (pity I lost the trails at some points and had to go back to the roads). I cycled for about 5 days and did approximately 400 kilometers, working my way along the trail and between castles - and it was one of the most rewarding weeks of my life.

    Thank you once again - and keep up the good work - the beauty of that part of the world is certainly worth preserving.

  • From Susan Church to Friends of Czech Greenways (1998)
    In 1998, Susan Church walked with her friend for 27 days on nearly the entire Prague - Vienna Greenways. She liked it so much she gave a slide presentation in February 1999 at the "Get Lost" bookstore in San Francisco. Read her Traveler's Tale.
