We got up early this morning and boarded the bus for lunch and shopping in Cesky Krumlov. 
 
Situated on the banks of the Vltava river, the town was built around a 13th-century castle with Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque elements. It is an outstanding example of a small central European medieval town whose architectural heritage has remained intact thanks to its peaceful evolution over more than five centuries.
 
The town grew up within a meander of the Vltava river, which provides a natural setting of great beauty. Its evolution over time is evident with startling clarity from its buildings and its urban infrastructure. It has profited from a relatively peaceful history in that it has retained its entire medieval layout and most of its historic buildings relatively intact. Restoration and conservation has been slight and so there can be no question as to the authenticity of both the townscape and its components.
 
I took advantage of the great shopping and in honor of those folks back home.  I joined Peter and Amy for lunch in a quaint Inn with great food. I had a Blue Cheese Burger (no more Schnitzel please!) and a big bier. 
 
We set back out on the bus for Vienna. It was a long, winding drive. We made it just in time for our group dinner reservation in Vienna. The meal started with an awesome beef broth soup and then the main course... drumroll... schnitzel! The meal ended with amazing chocolate cake and headed to out new hotel. My room is great. I'm going to jump into bed and prepare for two days of touring Vienna.
