42 – Čapek’s horse-shoes

Karel Čapek, Czech playwright, journalist and novelist, best known for his science fiction work and for his play which introduced the word robot (1920), is said to have brought two horse shoes back from his frequent country walks and nailed them for good luck, to the entrance of his Summer residence. Follow the approximate trail he took from the villa and it will lead you through field and forest, across streams and to a lake.
Čapek wondered whether “if dogs could talk, we would find it as hard to get along with them as we do with people.” Interesting and amusing thought indeed.
