Europe Trip: Day 1-2 {Czech Republic}

Yay! I've finally gotten around to blogging the first part of our unbelievable trip to Europe! After we made the long (overnight) flight from Boston to Munich we immediately got into our rental car and drove off to the Czech Republic. Our rental car (a Peugeot) was amazinggggg. It looked like a little mini van and we were all pretty skeptical of it. Once Amy pulled back the roof cover to reveal an awesome sun roof (that covered the entire roof) we were all instantly in love with it. It made it so that whoever was sitting in the middle in the back could still see everything everyone else could see. We could look up through the roof and see the mountains...so amazing. Here are the highlights from our first two days of our trip! :)

We had a great and very cheap dinner at our pension when we arrived and then we went for an evening walk to explore the little part of the town of Frymburk where our pension was located.

The hostess at Pension Markus put out an incredible breakfast for us. After we were finished eating we left for Ceske Krumlov. Dad took us on some awesome back roads on the way there and we got out a few times to snap some pictures.

We took a break and had some snacks and a few beers....we sat by the water and when it started to rain the awnings came out to cover us...it was so gorgeous!

When we got back from the city we decided to go for a bike ride around the reservoir. I don't remember the last time we all biked together it was so much fun!

After dinner Brandon, Mum, and I decided to hike up to a small church we had seen earlier in the day. We were so thrilled we chose to do that because even though it was sprinkling, we got an amazing view of Frymburk from up there! It was a perfect end to our last day in the Czech Republic!
