We left Tropical Islands and took a train back to Berlin’s cool central station (Haubtbanhof) and then took a more direct 4-hour train to Prague.
We had our own box to ourselves and the kids could nap.
We arrived in Prague at 5:30pm and found out that the taxis only take cash. So we wheeled our luggage across town over cobbled streets for 20 minutes in the sun to get to our place. The kids were annoyed their parents didn’t think to bring ATM cards to get cash.
Fortunately there is a pizza place around the corner so we could sit down and have dinner– full calorie Sprite for the kids, what a treat! – and pizza right away. Wow, 500ml beers cost 29 krona, or $1.29!
