One of the reasons we love Prague so much is because it is soooo easy to get around within the city and to other beautiful cities/Countries in Europe! Our first excursion was to Vienna, Austria. It just happened to be over Andrew’s 30th Birthday weekend (Oct 9th-12th)…so it made the trip even more exciting!

Our weekend started out early as we boarded our first REAL train at 8am! (Waiting for our train – Oliver – Paul Thomas – Sophia – Oliver) It was a beautiful four hour train ride through the countryside. It was fun to see outside of the city! The kids had a great time with the Battaglia boys!

We had booked a hotel with ROOMZ – a very cool modern hotel…but they had overbooked, so they upgraded us to the Mercer Hotel. After a day of traveling the idea of getting into a taxi to go to another hotel was not at the top of our listl. But it ended up being a great upgrade to a beautiful hotel right downtown! And as I said on my post about Andrew’s 30th Birthday…it had a WONDERFUL feast of a breakfast! Which when traveling with kids is VERY important to start your long day of sightseeing with a full belly!

After settling into our hotel we ventured out into the city. We quickly found this BEAUTIFUL park – Stadt Park, just a couple blocks from our hotel!!! It was fun to get out and run and explore this beautiful city! Also at this park was a really fun jungle gym – European cities have the coolest playgrounds ever!
