Day 2 - We reach Prague

We set off early (7ish) and headed east for Prague. It was my turn at the wheel and occasionally autopilot took over - finding my self back on the left side of the road - and consequently had oncoming traffic angrily tooting at us!

We drove pretty much solidly until about midday, only stopping for petrol and toilet break. We briefly passed through Denmark and into Germany, where just west of Frankfurt we bumped into a convoy of fellow ralliers which we tagged along with. We soon got bored of the autobahns so tried some German country side out for a couple of hours - which I must say is really nice! Unfortunately we forgot to unplug our inverter and overloaded the battery causing us to require a dangerous jump start facing the wrong way in traffic!

With the car running again we powered on through Germany and after around 14 hours driving we eventually made it into Prague for the Sunday night party.

Well we must dash, next we have Bratislava. The car is doing us extremely proud - starting to wish we could bring her home. We are 1054 miles closer to Mongolia.

It's a pity you were in Prague for a short time. There are not many places in the world, about which I can say I love them. I have to confess, that Prague is ONE of those.
