The Longest Day in My Life

Once upon a time there was a girl.  This girl thought she was a hardcore traveler and that flying to Europe really wouldn't be that bad.  Then that girl found out yesterday that flying across the globe is actually just has hard a people say it is! Thankfully, I was with some of the best people ever that made the trip bearable, check out this team!
I have to tell you that those to beautiful, baby girls were less whiny and slept better than most of us adults!!
This is the original ceiling to the grandstation on the outskirts of Prague. 

The 8 hour plane ride was actually easier than the rest of the journey yesterday But we did see some amazingly gorgeous sites will traveling through Prague and to Brno.
The entire city is built like this, I walked around all day looking up to see the incredible structures

Lunch was probably the best meal I have had abroad. Salmon with Czech style mashed potatoes.  Massive portion sizes and so, so fresh and tasty.

The train window was breathtaking, but I was too exhausted to take many pictures

It was the 3 and a half hour train ride with (barely any A/C)  that was an hour and a half late to the station that pretty much broke all of us.  It was in the low 90's in Prague yesterday so we were hot, running on very little sleep, and sick of sitting down.

This is just a small snap shot of the shenanigans that went on in that train.  We were so wiped that at one point, every little thing struck Ammygray and I as hilarious. so we proceeded to laugh and cry hysterically for about ten minutes.  The delirium was real. You can imagine that the other passengers were trying to figure out what those loud Americans were cackling about.  We finally crashed last night at 11:00 in our hotel.
It is currently 6 oclock in the morning here in Brno, making it about one in the morning back home.  My scheule is so thrown off, I actually woke up at 5:30 without an alarm because the sun rose at 4:00.  So confusing.  Anyway, I know this is a short update but my brain is still a bit jet lagged so more happenings later I will post.

Until next time!!


  1. Congrats on making it! Welcome the club of Weary Travelers :D

  2. Yep, you are now a member of an elite club! Just remember that it will all be worth it! Isn't the heat a surprise? It's that awful in Poland, too, but we're going north tomorrow and it is supposed to be cooler. Oh, please, let it be so!
