    Rolling into Prague

    July 4, 2017 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    First stop on the last day of our ride was the supermarket, they like bread here.
    Signage all along our route has been great, all navigation errors have been our own, usually because we missed a sign. Signs for ice cream are especially helpful.

    The highlight of the day was crossing the river on this little ferry. The ferry could squeeze in about 10 bikes, but most were going the other way so we didn't have to wait. The ferry is linked to an overhead cable and uses the current to drive it across. Apparently it's called a reaction ferry. We've also been on a couple of bigger ones that use an anchor rather than an overhead cable.

    We left the path a few kilometres from the end and headed across the river on a pedestrian bridge, up through a park, along some back streets and came out at this big roundabout. Our hotel was on the other side, and finding our way safely around was a bit tricky, but we got there.

    Time to be tourists in Prague.
