Low-cost airlines: cool thing about living in Central Europe

In Travel on September 17, 2008 by Petr Bokuvka Tagged: , , , ,

I used to envy Americans for having “such a big country”, i.e. country in which you can ski on Monday (Vail, CO) and have sunstroke the very next day (Florida Keys, Hawaii…).

But living in Central Europe is way better, having (to put it really simply) “more smaller countries grouped together”. I live in the city of Brno, which is two to four-hour drive from THREE capitals: Bratislava, Slovakia, Vienna, Austria and Budapest, Hungary. All of them are great cities and if you feel like spending an unusual weekend, you can make a last-minute decision and drive. Or catch a luxurious bus.

Same thing will low-cost airlines. Sky Europe now offers cool deals for just SEVEN EUROS. And so I got a return ticket from Prague to Amsterdam for CZK 700, which is $44. How cool is that: the flight takes 70 minutes, you can spend 12 hours discovering Amsterdam and then you fly back. Exploring a European capital in one autumn/fall day for 44 bucks. Yeah, plus some food expenses, but on a trip like that McDonald’s is quite sufficient…

  2. And I envy you, having the possibility of spending a weekend in Prague. 😉
    I’d love to visit Prague, Warsaw, Cracow, Budapest… but for Peruvian it is kind of an ordeal just to get a visa.
    Anyway, I really hope that I may, some day, visit those wonderful places.
    All the best from Peru,
