Waking Up to the last Morning in Prague
Waking up early needed no effort at all. The early morning running of trams outside the apartment was our natural alarm clock. In addition, the sun rose so early during summer. We would be heading to Berlin this morning. Our bus ride with Student Agency Bus was 8.30 am.
We had already requested the host to book us a car. The driver would be waiting for us outside the apartment at 7.30 am. So there was no rush at all. Our simple breakfast was those snacks bought from the supermarket the previous day and of course coffee and tea were available in our apartment.
After breakfast, we did another final round of packing, got our bags and then left the apartment. Checking out was very easy. All we needed to do was to leave the keys on the dining table, close the door and leave the apartment.
Transfer to Florenc Bus Station
Once outside the apartment, the street was still quiet. We didn’t see anyone waiting for us. A moment later, a big burly man walked over from across the street and waved at us. He had parked his car over the other side of the street. So we walked with him to his car just a very short distance from the apartment and loaded our bags and got into his car.
Our transport this morning was a nice black sedan car. The car was very new and he drove patiently and safely to Florenc Bus Station. The journey took under 20 minutes even though we got stuck at one of the narrow streets waiting for a small truck to unload stuff. It was a pleasant ride and a nice chat with this friendly driver.
The cost for the ride was just 130 CZK. This saved us a lot of trouble having to take public transport to the Bus Station with our bags, not to mention having to figure out buying tickets from the ticketing machine. Moreover, cost for public transport for three of us would come up to 72 CZK.
Florenc Bus Station
It was just 7.50 am when we alighted and walked into the Bus Station. We should be waiting at Platform 24 for our bus to Berlin. But we were still very early so we entered the ticketing hall for a look. Continue reading 10 Days Free and Easy Europe Tour (2017) – Day 4 Prague to Berlin
