Prague is one of the world’s finest destinations for city travelers. We walked through this wonderland of cobblestoned streets and grand old buildings, across the famous Charles Bridge and up to the castle and were blown away by all that beauty. And by the heat…

18 riders and passengers from 5 different countries are on their way through the eastern part of Central Europe. The first two days took us from Vienna to Budweis and on to Prague, the mother of all cities. Here are some impressions:
View of Dürnstein. Richard I the Lionheart, King of England, was held prisoner here in 1192, probably in the castle on the hill in the background, today a ruin.
