Welcome to Prague or as the Europeans say Praha. I was welcomed for my Central European Experience with Avalon Waterways the minute I arrived by Avalon and whisked away to the Art Deco Imperial Hotel. Perfect historical building in new town and a 20 minute walk to Old Town Praha. We walked around for hours and then we went back to the hotel for dinner reservations which is required. 5 star Michelin restaurant. Dinner was superb.

I’ve always wanted to visit the Christmas Markets and see the imperial cities of Prague and Budapest. And considering 2018 marks my 20th anniversary of my first visit to Europe (Vienna and Salzburg included) it just made perfect sense to celebrate by taking a river cruise along the Danube with Avalon Waterways to end the year on a European wonderland festive note.

Arriving early in Budapest served me and my cousin well. We got a chance to see the city before starting our Avalon Waterways river cruise the next day.
Once we began our adventure with Avalon Waterways, we started with a short tour on the Pest side. There are two sides of Budapest. The Buda side and the Pest side. The Buda side with started back in the 1200’s and the Pest side in the 1850’s. The Buda side is made up of large hillsides and is primarily residential. The Pest side is more commercial and the landscape is flat. Many of the city’s best hotels are on the Pest side.

Our Sightseeing on the Danube with Ama Waterways river cruise journey started at Houston Intercontinental Airport, Air France, on a nonstop flight to Paris. Expecting knees to my chin, an eight hour flight in a sardine can, WOW! Comfortable seats, legs stretched out and I was out in three minutes, comfy with my pillow and blanket that was already on the seat when we boarded. It was a full service flight, complete with meals, drinks, etc.

From astonishing history to lavish accommodations, much of central Europe is a dream of many to someday see. The Bohemian Highlights with Trafalgar was an insightful journey through the continent’s richest historical locations in comfort and luxury with Trafalgar. The tour started in Frankfurt and went down into Prague and eventually looped back around to where we started.
