Czech Republic – day 6

Today we went to Vienna which meant another early start.

It took about 3 hours to get there. The weather was dull and overcast again and we had a few shower, but not until we were on the coach on the way home.

Vienna was a very pretty city but it didn’t seem as cultural or atmospheric as Prague.

Robert (the tour guide) said he found it clinical, which is a good description for someone whose first language is not English.

The shops in Vienna were so expensive that you dared not look at anything. Food and drink was also dear – we ended up in McDonalds but even that came to the equivalent of £10.

We did go to one bar, where our bill for a beer and an orange juice was £4.

It took ages getting home due to traffic, rain – and the fan belt on the coach breaking. Over 3½ hours for an 80 mile journey.

We felt really tired and only had 2 pivos in the bar tonight.
