Day 4, country 2!
We have moved on to the Czech Republic!
After arriving into Prague we dropped off bags at our hostel before heading into town! (Not before Louise managed to forget the pass code to her lock and we spent a good 20 minutes trying to remember it!). We literally had about 7 hours in Prague which is a real shame as it Is a really beautiful city! We wondered around the old town and towards Charles Bridge, stopping at a local restaurant ( I think we take it for granted that people are no longer allowed to smoke in British restaurants. ...!)

This morning we began the Busabout Tour!
There are about 43 on the tour but everyone is extremely friendly and talkative. The bus is made up of about 90% Ausys with a few British, and Canadians 😊.

We visited Kutna Hora which is a tiny Chapel decorated with around 60000 human bones! A creepy but fascinating place!

We headed elsewhere for lunch and then finally finished in Olomouc for a wonder and dinner.
Czech Republic has brightly coloured buildings which make for colourful cities 😊 it is also very "good value for money" (we have been asked not to call it cheap as it is considered to be insulting to the locals.)

Tomorrow we head to a more somber destination, Auschwitz, which I think will be the hardest part of the trip.
The three of us have also signed up for all of the optional extras including a bike ride in Krakow, Salt mine tour, Budapest River and firework cruise and a tank ride in Slovakia- so look out for those posts!
