I’m actually writing this post from Prague, but this photo was taken last night shortly after I returned to the hotel in Vienna. As Murphy would have it, the first completely free day on our itinerary was mostly cloudy with sporadic showers throughout the day. That didn’t deter this group though! On the bus today everyone was recounting their adventures in Vienna yesterday, which included shopping, museums, gardens, and of course more churches and cathedrals …. along with a lot of walking through the city and learning the subway and streetcar system!
The bus ride to Prague was about 4.5 hours, with one short rest stop in the middle. After arriving and checking into our hotel we barely had an hour to unpack and freshen up before we met our local guide, Marcela, for a walking tour of the city. It was hot and sunny here today, so we are all very thankful that our hotel is located right in the heart of the city on Wenceslas Square and the AC and free Wi-Fi seem to be working for everyone! After our city tour we only had a short time to get ready for our next adventure, which was dinner and music at a traditional Czech folklore restaurant. Photos to follow tomorrow!
