Charles Bridge Prague Vienna and Praque mapSometimes it’s fun to just pack up and head out on a spontaneous getaway.  That’s what we did for this quick trip in May 2005.  We had long wanted to go to Prague, and when we learned of an incredibly low-priced package deal 8-day trip including airfare that was available only for the next two weeks, we cleared our schedules and went for it.

Our trip started with 2 nights in Vienna, followed by 5 nights in Prague.  Since we were there in May, a bit before the high season, the weather was cool and often damp.  But we were dressed for it and had a wonderful time exploring castles and churches and learning about the rich history of both of these places.

For us, Praque was an especially magical place with tons of local color and friendly people, and we will absolutely go back.  (In fact, we did return to both of these destinations as a part of a 2010 Danube River Cruise trip.  )
