Did you ever think about when Santa Claus takes a vacation and where does he go?
While everyone else is busy thinking about Christmas and getting ready for a nice Christmas break, Santa Claus takes his holiday where it’s warm.
Rose and Landy found Santa Claus in Portugal, of course. Isn’t that where you’d go for a week’s vacation if you lived in the brisk, cold North Pole?
Santa sees you! But you already knew that, didn’t you?
FlatRose is at the Orlando Airport and is ready for her next travel adventure! L., E., and Rose are going to Portugal and Spain. First stop – Lisbon!
Pink Baby Alligator is waving to her fans as they stroll by. Or maybe she’s bidding everyone happy travels.
#FlatRose is ready to travel with Landy to the Czech Republic. Oreo is ready to go too. Oreo has a reservation at a Doggie Spa while #FlatRose and Landy fly. But I’m not going to tell him.
#FlatRose Travel Tip: Check the bed. This one checked out just fine.
#FlatRose is at the Maiselova synagogue in Praha. Or Maisel Synagogue in Prague for us who aren’t fluent. It is one of the historical monuments of the former Prague Jewish Ghetto.
#FlatRose visits a Jewish cemetery with Landy. Europe, especially Eastern Europe has centuries of history. Our eyes might find the stones crowded, but the Czech Republic is roughly the size of South Carolina.
#FlatRose and Landy visited the Soan Synagogue – the Spanish Synagogue for us English-only readers.
According to #FlatRose, the most interesting building they saw was the Bone Church. The Sedlec Ossuary is a small Roman Catholic chapel, part of the former Selec Abby in a suburb of Kutná Hora in the Czech Republic. After 1511, the task of exhuming skeletons and stacking their bones in the chapel was given to a half-blind monk of the order. There are reported to be between 40,000 to 70,000 skeletons in the ossuary.
No more bone church pictures, just in case you’ve got the heebie-jeebies, but can you imagine the monk stacking the bones and skulls carefully, praying for each person? No? That was my first thought – what a responsibility!
#FlatRose recommends a Four Cheese pizza and a nice dark adult beverage – for those who are adults – after a long day of walking and sightseeing in the Czech Republic.
Na Zdravi, Landy!
Pink Baby Alligator is ready for her next adventure! Safe Travels, FlatRose!
