    Day 7🇦🇹🇨🇿

    July 27 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Day 7!
    We woke up in Vienna and went to the train station to leave our rucksacks. Our first stop was the Belvedere palace, where the national gallery is and Gustav Klimt’s “the kiss” that I really really wanted to see! It’s my favourite painting so I was excited to see it up close. We got there, walked around the garden of the palace, got our tickets for the upper Belvedere and walked around to see the paintings.
    They were all beautiful, there was also a Van Gogh one too and the Klimt exhibition was spectacular. I loved all the colours and especially “the kiss”. ❤️
    After that we went to the gift shop and I got a bag with the famous painting on it. We left the gallery and went looking around the shops. When we went to leave one of the shops, it was poring with rain and we had to buy an umbrella cause we didn’t have anything suitable with us😬.
    We walked around Vienna for a bit longer. We also went to the Fenster cafe to have a “fensterchinno”, it’s a cappuccino in an ice cream cone! Very different, and the coffee was delicious. We then headed to a lovely park in the city to walk a bit around, and visited a big shopping centre.
    The time was passing and we had to board our train to Prague Czech Republic. The duration was 4h 30m. When we got there we had 10 minutes to check in the hostel, so Lampros ran in-front and left me a little bit behind. When we got to the hostel there was a problem with our reservation - the guy there didn’t have our reservation and couldn’t check us in, even though we had paid for it and had an email for confirmation. The situation wasn’t like what we had booked, so we decided to leave, go somewhere else and ask for our money back through booking.com. We were tired and it was late so found another hotel, showered and slept! Another day tomorrow in Prague🇨🇿

    Day 8!🇨🇿🇩🇪

    July 28 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Hello from Nuremberg!
    We woke up today in Prague, Czech Republic. Our checkout wasn’t till 12:00 so we left our rucksacks and went in to town. First we had breakfast at a small caffè with croissants that were super fresh!
    Then we went and explored. First we visited the Old town square, a beautiful central part of the medieval town of Prague. There, you can see Prague’s astronomical clock, it’s been there since the 15th century and still works with it’s old mechanism. This makes it the world’s third oldest astronomical clock, and the first to still work!
    We went up to see the view and it was beautiful. Then we headed for Charles bridge, which was built in 1357 by the then king (I don’t remember his name😂) and is full of beautiful statues. On there, locals set benches for selling their art pieces or handcrafted jewellery. We then headed to the palace, on a small hill opposite Charles bridge. We climbed up 287 steps to the top of the chapel St. Vitus, and again the view was spectacular!
    Part 2!

    Last day in Prague

    June 22 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 77 °F

    Miles: 4.2 Steps: 10329
    Flights stairs: 9

    Today was our last day in Prague and we had a nice relaxing time. We headed up to Petrin Hill on a funicular and went to the Mirror maze - it was cute. Wish it would have been harder, but still fun. Then we stopped at the Petrin Tower, Prague’s attempt to duplicate the Eiffel Tower. Built slightly differently and MUCH smaller, but neat to see. We also toured the beautiful rose gardens and then took the funicular back down.

    After that we headed back to the Head of Franz Kafka to see if it was working today, and found it was - kind of. There are 42 moving plates, and sadly 2 of them didn’t rotate. Still saw the gist of it, but the broken pieces didn’t allow it to do all it was supposed to do. If you google it you can see it working correctly.

    Then we headed thru the city for one last look. Everywhere we go we see Starbucks - it’s amazing how they are different in each old city and morph right in with the surroundings.

    Prague is definitely a beautiful place - and their public transportation system is the best we’ve seen yet. The US has a long way to go to catch up with the rest of the world it seems.

    Praha

    August 13 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Heute besuche ich die tschechische Hauptstadt und brauche dabei selten eine Karte, denn ich kann mich in den großen Touristenströme von einer Sehenswürdigkeit zur nächsten treiben lassen.
    In einigen engeren Straßen wirken die Menschenmengen erdrückenden und leider sind die Erdgeschosse der schönen Altbauten häufig mit billigen Touristenfallen vollgestopft. Dafür bieten die großzügigen Plätze in der Altstadt und vor der Burg Raum zum durchatmen und eine sehr schöne Bebauung ringsum.
    Inmitten der steinernen Straßenschluchten, erscheint der streng formale Wallenstein Garten wie eine grüne Oase, die mir Schatten und Wasser spendet. Auch entlang der Moldau gibt es etwas Grün und ihre zahlreichen Brücken bieten tolle Ausblicke auf die Stadtsilhouetten.

    Prague, finally!!

    June 21 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☀️ 70 °F

    Miles: 7.45 Steps: 17644
    Flights stairs: 15

    We finally had great weather and went out and enjoyed Prague! It was beautiful. We went to the Prague castle and St Vitus Cathedral as well as St George’s cathedral on the hill. It was really pretty cool.

    Then we headed down to the river and went across the Charles Bridge and into the old town. We took a tour of the famous astronomical clock. Didn’t get to see any workings of the clock but did have an interesting tour of the underground city that lies underneath the one we see above. We also took a small boat ride (size, not time) down the river and into the canals of “little Venice” - which, really wasn’t much like Venice now that I’ve been there.

    The highlight of the evening was going back at night to see the town lit up. Truly beautiful.

    1. Station Prag

    August 1 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Nach einer guten Nacht auf dem OBI Parkplatz bei Prag starteten wir in die Stadt. S-Bahn Anbindung direkt vor dem Wohnmobil und Ticket super günstig mit Kontobuchung von 0 Euro pro Ticket :)

    Wir endeckten gleich den Laden vom "kleinen Maulwurf" und Leni war begeistert. Natürlich haben wir auch ein Souvenir mitgenommen.

    Mittag gab es direkt am Markt. Leckere scharfe fettige Wurst (ziemlich geil) und Kartoffelpfanne mit Sauerkraut. Lenis Geschmack traf es leider nicht :p Aber die lebt eh von Kakao, Eis und Rosinen. Ah ja, und ganz viel Obst.

    Nach einer kurzen Stadttour zu Fuß mit Pferdstreicheln und Riesenspieleparadies für Leni war der Tag auch schon um.

    Prague … kind of

    June 19 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☀️ 93 °F

    Miles: 5.5 Steps: 14503
    Flights stairs: 13

    Our first official day in Prague and it hit 100° out of the blue. The next three days we’re here should be normal temp, so we decided to change up plans and go somewhere nice and cool instead of sightsee in this heat — so we went to the mall!

    After 3 months on the road we needed a few things, plus it’s just fun to see the “normal” side of a city like this. We’ve been to a couple malls now in Europe and they’re HUGE. This one was 5 stories tall.

    Hopefully the weather report will be right for tomorrow and the heat is going to break .. so I’ll have some awesome experiences & pics of the city.

    The menus are completely different. They have burgers I’ve never heard of - a Kansas burger?!? And in most countries the menu is twice as big as what you see in US

    Prague’s weather causing issues

    June 20 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 81 °F

    Miles: 3.73 Steps: 9702
    Flights stairs: 9

    This is the first town where we have been seriously hampered by the weather. Pretty good considering we’re going on 90 days of travel. Yesterday it was stifling hot - 100° in the shade! So we didn’t do much but shop in the mall. Today we tried to go out, but a giant storm blew in, took the temps down to 50-60’s with severe rain, thunder and lighting, so we gave up and went back to our hostel mid day knowing the forecast was much better the next few days. crossing our fingers.

    We did go to a few things before heading “home”. We saw the Dancing house - they also call it “Fred and Ginger” here. It’s a building that is meant to look like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dancing. It was pretty neat.

    Then we headed to the “Head of Franz Kafka” - a sculpture of a German famous writer. It was not running because of the weather, but it was supposed to change forms and spin. We’re going to try to see it again before we leave and see if it’s working.

    We went out in the evening after the storm passed and went to Letna Park, which is close to where we’re staying. Gave us a nice view of the sunset and of the city below.

    During this trip in some cities I add in a few extra days here and there to “rest”, do laundry, get shopping done, plan the next countries, things like that. Luckily that was the case here in Prague so we had a few extra days to give. It was nice to just sit and relax and take it easy. And we have a private room at the hostel, so even better!!

    You are NOT going to believe this, but at first glance, I saw the post’s title “Prague’s weather causing issues”, then I glanced down and saw what looked like a building being blown by the wind!!!!😂😂😂
