We left Austria in tour buses and drove to Cesky Krumlov, in the Czech Republic. The scenery was spectacular and once again, we enjoyed the history of an ancient village.
They are still quite economically depressed, and prices were the most affordable of any of our stops. I had two glasses of Jameson, a plate of cheeses and a bottle of water for $14. I’d be lucky just to get the Jameson for that price at home.
And speaking of lucky... you can't get any better than sharing this wonderful adventure with a good friend. Lucky indeed!
The cobblestones and hillside town reminded me so much of Italy. I cannot begin to imagine the difficulty in constructing these villages centuries ago.
We left Czechoslovakia and drove to Passau, Bavaria to meet our ship. Just as you would expect in Germany, it is a completely different style of housing and buildings. So, three countries in one day!
