Rainy morning in Cesky Krumlov and travel to Linz

It was raining and lovely and cool this morning at only 11degrees so I slept in until 8am and then read my book. Had to check out of the room by 10am so we stored our luggage at the office and donned our rain jackets and walked around in the light drizzle, looking inside shops before stopping at a cafe to have a cuppa.

Cost 152 CZK ( $8.70 AUD)

I then left Mum to do a quick uphill walk to the castle and up the top of the Castle tower for 50CZK ( $2.90 AUD) for last look around the town. Of course there is the added bonus to get some exercise before the CK Shuttle picked us up at 12.55pm.

The 1 1/2 hour trip to Lintz cost 400 CZK each ( $23 AUD) in a car with 2 other people. Our driver was lovely friendly young guy who expressed his concern over the number of refugees that had been allowed into Europe. It was a beautiful drive over the mountains into Austria

We were dropped at the Hauptbahnhof where we bought tickets to Munich Hauptbahnhoff and then out to the airport for 70.80E ( $110 AUD)

We walked over the road to the Ibis Hotel and discovered that we were not booked into this Ibis but another one...very annoying . We now had to go back to the station and catch a train a few stops to another Ibis Hotel.
