We wanted to visit my cousin near Karlsruhe, but there was no easy way to get there. No overnight trains with out transfers, long train rides, hmmm… My cousin suggested we get to Nurnberg and he would pick us up. So then I found reduced tickets for the bus from Prague [Prague-travel-guide-276556] to Nurnberg. I booked them online and printed our ticket before we left. Somehow we managed to find the bus stop at the main train station.
We waited outside with a bunch of people and luggage, so we figured we were in the right place. The bus was a double decker bus (cool!) and we were directed to our seats on the upper level after handing our luggage to the driver for loading. I was looking for our seats, but they didn't seem to be up here. We entered at the back and kept walking forward....no way! We had the very front row by the windshield! Awesome! It was such a fun bus ride, like we were driving the bus ourselves! We got nice views of the Prague andthe scenic countryside, which could have been any country. A couple of times I got nervous because it looked like we were going to run over a car. Must have just been the perspective. It was about a 3 hour bus ride to Nurnberg and so worth the cost! Perfect! We waited a few minutes at the train station and then my cousin arrived to pick us up. Away we went!
