European Adventures - Prague to Paris

10.18 Tuesday

We start our last morning in Prague doing a bit of souvenir shopping and grabbing a fried mozzarella sandwich.

Knowing that this is going to be our last day in Prague motivates us to get out of bed and onto a subway to the Staropramen brewery, which is one of the largest in the Czech Republic.

The tour is an interactive automated beer museum, which was obviously very well assembled and of high quality, but severely lacking in humanity.

The beer we sampled afterward was VERY good, which enticed us to try some of their other varieties; Lager, Dark, Unfiltered, and Premium (original).

We hop on the train to get back to our hotel and decide to take a detour to see the Castle Bridge up close in the daylight, which involved us swapping trains at a station. When we exit the second train we are stopped and asked for our tickets by a ticket agent, only to realize that our tickets had expired and we are now considered train jumpers! We are then forced to pay a hefty fine before we are let go (1600 Korunas or 100 US). With our wallets a little lighter and our spirits a little heavier, we continue to take our last look at Prague before getting our gear from the hotel and getting a train and bus to the airport.

Upon arriving in Paris, we are informed that the train from the airport is shut down for maintenance and we are forced unto a bus, then we get on a train, then a subway, then finally to our home for 2 nights at the Hotel de Cabourg. Bonne Nuit, Paris!
