... was open and what trains I needed to get and the timing worked out perfectly. I got to the train station, bought my return ticket, and only had to wait about ten minutes for the train. I got on and a Spanish family (father, mother and daughter) sat next to me. I ended up chatting with them for the hour ride to Kutna Hora and ran into them a few times during the day in the town as well. The father (Juan) gave me his business card and said that I can ...

This tiny fairytale town has confirmed that Czech Republic is one of my favourite European Countries. My love of Prague is shared equally, if not little bit more with Cesky Kromlov.

To the meeting place for the 1100 free tour, 6 of the girls there [but Catherine doing another tour]. Rose asked me for my best Aussie accent since I had the Wallabies' jersey ...
