Here we go, in the whee hours of the morning 4 am to be exact. The car all loaded, have my coffee cup filled and quitely put my children in the car. The point to leave so early and having a head start is mainly so my children can sleep a few more hours and lessen the trip in the car a bit. We leave from Gent, Belgium and are going thru Holland and Germany to make our way to Prague. Gosh, I love driving the autobahn and my sister's Benz is cruising smootly at 150 mph. We arrive early at the border and sail right thru. No smow, mthe weather is helping us getting there faster. There's lots of land out here and we are enjoying the scenery. Arriving In prague was a breeze and we check into a hostal. First time for my children to stay in one.
We are looking to go south and our hotel ownedr suggest Cesky Krumlov to us, so that's where we are heading to. It is fun dring in the country when the landscape is so beautiful. The fields seem never ending. We are arriving in town. There is a river running thru here and after driving for a few minutes we notice that everything there is to see and do is in the car free center. We decide to get a hotel room overlooking the river and check in. The river is so much fun and the old houses and bridge is so much fun my kids are immediately entertained and so am I. This town is fun, build on 2 levels at first it is a little confusing to get around. It also may have to do with the part that we came in walking by the river instead of taking what almost everyone else does, the streets.
We decide to go bad by going a little south, close to the Austrian border. I didn't realize how far of the freeway we really are and we are running into a lot of snow, Making it at timwes hard to see and on some roads hard to drive since it is freezing up. We will enjoy some of that snow. In Texas you'll never see that. Out of the car and snowballs start flying around. This is what it feels like beuing young at heart and taking the time out to have fun. We are in for a long way home. it was a trip well worth it and it has peaked my interest in seeing a lot more of Eastern Europe. Better be ready for us.
