Europe

We woke up in the morning and boarded our bus to Vienna. This time we had booked using Eurolines and the bus quality was equally good.  It was a big day back in India as Lok Sabha election results were to be declared which in turn were to decide the next Indian Prime Minister. The Wifi in the bus turned out to be...

I woke up around 7 in the morning and the train was scheduled to reach Budapest around 8 AM. I bought a coffee from attendant and watched the country side of Hungary sipping my coffee through the glass window. The rain had followed us in Budapest and it was a rainy morning. From the station we bought the ticket for...

Next morning I left the hostel as I was supposed to meet my friend who was going to accompany me for the rest of the trip. I was going to meet him after more than 5 years. I walked from my hostel to the hotel booked which was around 3 tram stations away. Trams were closed in that area due to maintenance and I had a...

Next morning I boarded the bus to Prague and again I had booked my bus from Student Agency.   The route from Brno to Prague was fantastic and the yellow beds of flowers on road sides was a very pleasant site. The journey was very comfortable and though the bus had the facilities like WiFi and movies, I spent time just...

I landed at 6 AM at Vienna airport and immigration was very quick as there was no queue. I had booked a bus for Brno at 8 AM so I had plenty of time in hand. I converted few Euros to Czech currency at airport which should be enough for some emergency requirements as rest of the currency I was supposed to convert once...

I got a feedback from many readers that they would prefer a travelogue of trips on this page as they will find it useful while planning their own trip. I was under impression that no one would like to read long posts with details but looks like it is not the case. So I decided that even if one person is finding that...

I had taken guided tours many times in past and they followed a standard procedure. We visit a destination, book a guide, pay the pre-defined fees and take a guided tour. So when I first heard about Free Walking Tours, that was something interesting and unheard of. These tours are organized by  tour companies but the...

It was a rainy evening in Budapest and clock had ticked 9 O clock. Budapest is well-known for cruises in river Danube and we had booked tickets for the same. As there was still some time left, we moved to other side of road in search of a place to protect ourselves  from rain. Umbrellas were of no use because of...

Vienna was the first and last destination of my trip as I had my return flight from there :). I spent two days in Vienna which are not sufficient at all to see this city. Unfortunately that was the maximum I could take off as Prague was my target on this trip which got maximum attention. So here is a quick walk...
