Kutna Hora to Vienna Train Day 125

I tried in vain to get instructions from a totally non-English speaking woman at the Kutna Hora train station about trying to get to Vienna today. She handed me this printout that had like, 6 train changes to get there, whereas if I just made the hour long train ride back to Prague then I […]

Kutna Hora, Czech Republic Day 124

 It was so hot a beer was very much needed! Today I made up for my lack of activity from yesterday. My head was still aching a bit but I couldn’t just sit in my room for one more day so off I went!  I walked this town three times over, I swear. It’s a […]

Prague, Czech Republic Day 119

What a lovely day and what a lovely city! It reminds me a lot of Bruges in that it’s so romantic and has so many old buildings. It’s a great wandering around city. If only it weren’t so busy! I know, I sound like a broken record but the number of people here is staggering! […]

Berlin to Prague Train Day 118

Today I was on the train for almost 5 hours so I could give my poor feet a rest and just sit back and look out the window. I met these two young guys from London on the train. They had been partying the night before at some sort of rave and were feeling rough. […]
