So we’ve just come back from the most lovely 2 nights in Český Krumlov, Czech Republic and I’m getting quite sad (but also excited) thinking that that was probably our last time away just the two of us. Although, I did think that during the last one and we ended up going away again, so who knows! It was a last minute trip; only booking the car and hotel about a week before. We stayed at Hotel Bellevue, which was perfect and had a wonderful buffet breakfast, so we were able to last a good while each morning before feeling hungry again. We rented a car and got upgraded to a beast of a vehicle and left Vienna for the 3 hour drive to Český Krumlov.
For the Easter break, we rented a car in Vienna and drove the easy and very picturesque journey down in to Slovenia. Living in Vienna makes it super easy to cross into other countries and even though it’s a short(ish) journey, it feels like we’re so far away from home. I love having a car to explore as I can pack what I want and we can take our time and explore other places. I love having the freedom that a car provides and they’re easy to hire in Vienna. Unlike England, you don’t need a code or faff about providing proof of address, etc. We hired a Skoda with Rentalcars.com for a very reasonable price of €111.47 for 6 days.
