Today we drove about 4 hours to Tetin. My brother Matthew and his wife Veronika live there with their three children, Valentina, Isabella and Vincent.
The farm and lands belonged to my father’s family before the communists took them over. He reclaimed them after the communist era and Matthew moved there from Toronto 28 years ago with my father. It is a working farm with all kinds of animals and crops. It’s also where he started his Johnny Servis company which is a major sponsor of our next races, the Cez Jiserska Worldloppet. Matthew is sking in the 25 km classic with us on Saturday and our brother Gregory is coming from Toronto to race as well. There’s a very competitive spirit in my family so we’ll all ski to beat each other, just for fun!- should be awesome!
It was a great visit but far too short! Tomorrow morning we’ll drive to our apartment in Liberec which will be our home base for the Cez Jiserska.
