As amazing as Vienna was, our excitement for Prague was high. A few on the bus had already been so they had told us about the amazing city (and shopping). Firstly however there was a sombre stop at Mauthausen Concentration Camp. On the drive there we were given a briefing about the camp before shown a… Read More Czech out Prague!
We hit the road again, we waved goodbye to Budapest and paved our way to Vienna. A very quiet bus ride as most of us slept.

Amanda, our tour leader gave… Read More Undefeated Albania
