    Hi everyone!

    I'll start working in IBM, Brno a few weeks from now.
    I come in the east asia region and this is my first time to be in a European region. I am hoping that my stay in Brno will be memorable.

    Hi again to everyone in this forum.

    I'm Mark. I'm 24 yrs. old and I feel a little bit tensed :? since it's gonna be my first time in Europe. Hopefully I can find someone here in the forum whom I can chat about the culture, environment and people of Czech Republic.

    I also feel excited :D because I have read in this forum that Czech Republic is really a nice place. By the way, I'll be working and staying in Brno and I also hope to chat with forumers who live in Brno.

    Thanks to all who responded and sent PM. :D

    I also would like to know how long is the travel from Brno to Prague?
    I have an aunt who lives there and I'm paying her a surprise visit once I get to Brno. :D

    With great power comes great responsibilities..

    It take two and a half hours by bus and a bit longer by train. Have a look in the Travel Tips and Advice forum and you'll find a link there somewhere to IDOS, the site that gives all the Czech bus and train timetables.

    Hey Mark,

    I just left Brno just this morning after a 9 week stay. During this time I meet an American ( Sean ) who works for IMB and is now living in Brno for 2 years now. Nice guy.

    If you want to go the Praha I woud suggest taking the bus. Student Agency.... you need to check it out. It's at the square near Alberts in Brno.

    The train was also a great experience and I would do it again.
