Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

Bill Clinton and Vaclav Havel

Vaclav Havel with Bill Clinton at the Reduta Jazz Club

A memorable moment in the relations between the United States and Czech Republic occurred in 1994 when then U.S. President Bill Clinton visited the country and took in the music at the Reduta Jazz Club. Havel presented Clinton with a saxophone and then our former president jammed with the band for a few songs. Sadly, Havel passed away two days ago after a brilliant life as a politician and a writer.

The Reduta Jazz Club in Prague still proudly proclaims the home of this fabled meeting with pictures of this historic night in front of their establishment. Oddly enough, Europeans have embraced  jazz more than mainstream Americans have, so when traveling overseas in Europe it is a must adventure to check out the jazz scene in any European city. The Reduta Jazz Club is an outstanding place to start in Prague.


The goal of Traveling Ted is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
