Where we rode – February 10th Weekend Trips

We can’t believe it’s already mid-February. We have been hitting the rode every weekend to Europe’s top destinations and now spring break is just around the corner. This past weekend Bus2alps headed up its first trip to the Fairy Tale city of Prague, Czech Republic, and once again entertained adventure and beauty seekers in Interlaken, Switzerland. With over 100 students on each trip, everyone had a blast, Bus2alps style.

This weekend we kicked off our first trip of 2011 to the Czech Republic. Our trip to Prague linked up study abroad students and friends studying in Florence, London, and Rome to the enchanting city of Prague. From our launch point at the Czech Inn, one of Europe’s top hostel accommodations, we were able to take advantage of all the great sightseeing and hang out spots that Prague has to offer. Some favorites were the John Lennon Wall, Astronomical Clock, and Prague Castle. The New Europe Walking Tour gave us a way to appreciate the culture and people of this wonderful city in a humorous and entertaining way.  Nighttime events included a pub-crawl in the center of Old Town, and a trip to Lucerna, a club which hosts an 80’s 90’s pop music video party every Saturday (arguably the best night in Europe!).

As the winter season rolls along, another massive group enjoyed the go-to adventure hot spot of Interlaken. With mother nature on our side, everyone traveling with Bus2alps to Switzerland this weekend had an amazing time. The weather was sunny and warm everyday, making for some awesome skiing conditions. Clear skies made all those who went skydiving and paragliding happy as they admired Switzerland from above while experience some adrenaline pounding thrills. Those with a sweet tooth enjoyed a chocolate show in town while another lucky Bus2alps traveler won over 200 Swiss francs at the local casino! As usual, the Metro Bar was hopping both nights as everyone danced their hearts out with their friends they came with, and all the new ones they met on the trip. Never short of adventure and good times, Interlaken once again wowed the three bus loads of students who traveled with Bus2alps.

Overall another incredible weekend with Bus2alps as we look towards the few weeks, where more Interlaken and Prague, and trips to Vienna & Salzburg and Venice Carnival await.

We can’t wait to get back on the bus!
