Our Holiday - Prague to Paris May 2011

Hi everyone,
Where have I been for the last few weeks; having a fantastic holiday in Europe!!  We left Perth and flew to Dubi and then onto Prague. We had three days in Prague, and we were then bused to Budapest and joined our boat cruise on the Danube River.  We made our way to the Main Canal and then into the Rhine River arriving in Amsterdam.  Along the way we called in at some of the large cities and some very quaint little villages.  We stayed in Amsterdam for one night and then bused to Paris passing through three countries on the way, Holland, Belgium and France.  Then we flew from Paris to Dubi to Perth to finish our fantastic holiday.  We had a fabulous time meeting lots of interesting people, eating and drinking far to much and taking in all the lovely scenery and history along the way.  These are some of the photos taken on the trip.
