It was another early start as we set out for Cesky Kumlow, Czech Republic at 8:30am by bus from our docking in Lintz, Austria.
The countryside was lovely and Marek entertained with jokes.
Cesky Kumlow is a fantastic place - kind of like an idealized medieval town. There is a castle and narrow cobbled streets, little shops, and a beautiful church, to say nothing of the stories of love, betrayal, ghosts and vampires.
After a very interesting walking tour John, Mary, Lizzie, Marie Angelica and I wandered around until we found a tiny restaurant where we had a great and inexpensive meal. We watched the creation of ham and cheese crepes right by our table (the only one in the place).
A brewery tour then followed, but it was a disappointment.
Back at the ship we had a champagne reception with the captain, and then the Captain's Farewell Dinner; it was really delicious.
Afterward we took the Intrepids group photo and retired to our cabins.
