In Prague

Hello from Prague
We have travelled from Hungary to Prague via a fleeting visit to Vienna. Unfortunately we ate out in Budapest on what was to be our last night there but the next morning we were too sick to travel - no more Hungarian Goulash for me! So that meant we could only spend one night in Vienna which was disappointing but we did managed to have a couple of hours walk around the city centre and see some of the major sights. There was another amazing building, sculpture or sight around every corner.
Prague is very beautiful and we are staying just out of the centre in a quiet area called Vyseghrad which was the original centre of Prague with castle before relocation to the present site on castle hill. Today we wandered the town centre, up and down little streets finding another photo opportunity around every corner and wonderful shops to browse. Tomorrow we are going to visit the castle area. We are staying in an apartment owned by an Aussie so it's great to hear a familiar accent, and Michael is very helpful and has shown us some great spots to visit and see. Good restaurants around here and lovely parks to wander in the afternoon when the locals are all out walking their dogs and taking their babies for a stroll in their prams! Prague is very safe and everyone is still out on the streets walking til quite late.
From here we head to Amsterdam on Wednesday night - a little change of plan, so another overnight trip although think it will be a bit more upmarket than the Turkish and Bulgarian trains (a least I hope so!).
Love to all and thinking of you,
Love Ya Mum and Nan, xxxx

PS hopefully some more photos next time.
