After a sleepless night on my train ride to Copenhagen, I decided to take a flight to Prague. I found a one-way ticket for around $100! Then I found similar prices for my next flights to Budapest and back to Amsterdam. Airfares in Europe are cheap!

I always wanted to see Prague after hearing in the 90's about how spectacular it was, and less touristy than Western Europe. I spent four days here and saw a lot of the city. It lived up to my expectations which was difficult.
