For some it might sound a little crazy, but yes, I flew from Prague to Toronto, which means, taking a bus for 4 hours from Linz to Prague, stay in a Hotel for the night and get the early morning flight via Brussels to Toronto. Yes, that’s insane, but it in total the transportation costs were less then half price as if I flew from Austria, so it was worth it. Anyway, Prague is a lovely town and always nice to be there.
It was my first trans Atlantic flight and I did not know what to expect in terms of sea and stuff, but unfortunately there were just clouds and no good view to the sea anyway.
I was staying at Hampton Inn by Hilton Toronto around an hour outside of Toronto. Nice clean rooms and huge beds which were so comfy! Here you can check their hotel page on booking.com
My hosts Maddalena and Turk took me to Toronto in the evening, so I could get a first impression of that town. I am sure I’ll never forget this awesome smell of bbq which was around in the whole center while we were walking along. Wow, that was great and a wonderful first impression. After some beer and this fantastic fatty food 🙂 I was sleeping like a baby during the night.
