An Amsterdam Ending

We had a nice flight from Prague to Amsterdam and arrived Sunday afternoon.  Our friends Brian and Shawn headed back home, but we continued our journey for just a few more days.  We checked into the hotel first, the Waldorf Astoria, which was gorgeous!!  Turns out Lady Gaga had stayed there the night before we arrived.  This location had just opened in May, so it was all brand new.  We stayed in the loft style room which added so much character with the beautiful beams, plus the nice view out the window of the canal.



Once settling in, we headed out to check out the local area.  We walked a few blocks over towards Rembrandt Square.  There were tons of people everywhere.  After our walk, we stopped for dinner and then back to call it an early night.
On Monday, we got up early to head to the Anne Frank House.  I tried to reserve tickets online, but they were already sold out so we had to wait in line :(  It took about an hour and a half to get in the house/museum.  And it was worth it!! …

One time...in Praha

After 3 full days in Munich, then a trip to Salzburg, it was time to move our adventures to another city.  I was so excited to get back to Prague.  I was fortunate to have spent some time there in May 2004 for a study abroad trip in college.  I had talked about this great city for 10 years, so I was thrilled to get to bring Will back with me.

We decided to add some extra fun to our trip and went to Prague by train.  I found a train that went straight there, thankfully.  There were some that had various stops where we would need to change trains.  But, being our first train ride together and having all our luggage...direct was best!  It took a little over 6 hours.  The train wasn't impressive...just seats and it didn't have a food car - boo!  Thankfully, we had some snacks in our bags so we didn't starve.  We did get to see some beautiful countryside on our journey!  Once we arrived at the train station, we had to take a cab to our hotel.



We got checked in at the Unitas hot…
