Today was a travel day from Berlin to Prague. We spent the morning seeing some more bits of the wall around Checkpoint Charlie, eating some REALLY sugary pastries for breakfast, walking round Brandenberg Tor, and strolling through the park.

We then took a train to Prague, which took around five hours. The scenery was beautiful, and it was nice to see a bit of the countryside. We arrived in Prague to firstly find our hotel, had a traditional Czech dinner, and then did a bit of walking around. Prague is beautiful. We knew tomorrow would be a good day.

In the meantime we did have to sample some of the local beers that we've heard so much about. Cheap and pretty good...The ones shown here (0.5 l) were about 30 koruna each, or $1.70 Canadian. Not bad. I bought this DK travel book for both Berlin and Prague, so like a tourist, pulled it out after dinner to do some reading. It was nice to have these smaller books, as they did fit in my bag for the day, and I liked reading about what we saw that day. However, I am not sure if it was because it was the "Top 10" version and not the full book, but we found that there were some key sites missing from both Berlin and Prague. Do you bring a book when you travel? Which one do you rely on?
