SOME ESSENTIALS one cannot do without…/Veci bez kterych se v zahranici neobejdete…

I always beat myself over my head remembering that I did not mention some of the Czech-essential thingies (which I have been using for a while) to you guys. Here are just a few of them; there would be more but I never write them down right when I remember them so I forget halfCzech duvet cover.

CZ: Ceske veci bez kterych se neobejdete! Povlak na periny, ceske radio pro deti a papani:


DUVET COVER – or ‘povlak na periny‘; very essential!!!!! I am sorry but who wants to sleep under some thin sheet when it’s freezing outside??!! You need a serious duvet filled with bird feathers to warm you up! And if you have that you also need a cover. You can buy them just about anywhere (Target, Bed bath and Beyond, Walmart), but they are kind of in hiding unless you know this term. Also they may be available only on-line.

DISKO TRYSKO – this is an Czech IPhone application for children. It’s a Czech radio which has three stations: kids disco music, kids fairytale songs, and kids fairytales. All in Czech and all free!!! My girls like to dance to it at least once a day.

FOOD ESSENTIALS – there are bunch of them like Czech Melta, Pribinacek, Czech-style flour…..all of these and many more are mentioned in my other post (click here).

If you liked this post buy me a coffee! (Suggested:$3 a latte $8 for a pound) Thanks!

    These are fine, but I am thinking more along the lines of a good Czech beer!

    I am not much of a drinker but my husband loves Czech beer. He sticks with the Pilsener Urquell, they have it just about anywhere. Also if you read the post about the Czech food (linked) and read the comments you will know more about this as well.\\

    we have the one with ‘fake’ feathers and it works great. They are hypoallergenic and much cheaper.

    It’s great that you are mentioning duvet cover…I was always astonished by the concept of a sheet. Sheet under a thin blanket or under a duvet. How is that even hygienic? The sheet NEVER stays put, so even though you change it and wash it regularly, the blanket/duvet must get dirty…unless you are supposed to wash them/dry clean them as often as you do the sheet. This sounds like a great hassle although I’ve seen it in the US and also many parts of Europe. This is especially revolting in a hotel…do they wash the said blankets/duvets too between guests??? I doubt it… Fortunately duvet covers seem to be more accessible in stores than they used to be.
