so we are finally here in prague. the flight on british airways was amazing.. good wine with an amazing meal, with coffee afterwards, drinks with option for alcohol before and after, and about an hour before we left, a box with a danish and orange juice, amazing. of course our bodies turned to rock being so cramped but after we touched down in prague, a bit of walking for the subway and tram worked wonders. we were completely lost at prague airport, it looked like the remnants of soviet era planning in that airport and so nothing was displayed properly, we wandered around a bit looking for the atm machines and where to get on the bus, but finally was directed toward everything by people working there who spoke just enough english. of course we found ... read more

so i tried to update the map today..wont let me for some reason....we can do another one as we go. we have decided to skip italy....instead we can focus more on austria and especially hall, which is around innsbruck. we are going to do some hiking into the meadows way up in the mountains and get fresh food and milk from the local farms of people who live there. it sounds awesome....check out the rick steves for austria on hulu.com to see where we will be going. anyway we can focus more on that stuff..and after gimmelwald go onto metz france....then paris....more time for bruges...the beer sounds awesome. and of course we might get lost somewhere in germany instead......yay adventure! 3 days to go! think my head is gonna pop off with all that needs to ... read more
