 Vienna, Prague, and the Czech Greenways !


This trip to Austria and the Czech Republic was mainly a hiking trip thru the southern Czech countryside along the "Czech Greenways", a set of old hiking trails thru the Czech countryside. Each day we would do a day hike of about 8 to 12 miles, and every evening we'd be staying in a small local hotel or pension. A local driver with a Volkswagen mini-van would drop us off at the trail head every morning and pick us up at the end of the day's hike. He also took care of transporting our luggage from hotel to hotel. The trip also included a day and a half stay in Vienna, Austria and a day and a half stay in Prague, Czech Republic.
