Arrival at Prague Airport

For many years we made a lot of trips to the Prague airport to pick up people: summer interns, visiting guests, family members, new JV staff. But for many reasons, we don't go as often these days.

There are others now to pick up summer interns, as well as new JV staff.

Our family usually flies into Krakow because it's closer (and usually cheaper to fly there!).

And with the connection from the Prague airport to the main train station so easy these days thanks to the Airport Express bus going every half hour, not to mention the ease and speed of train travel between Prague and Ostrava, we usually just recommend people take that mode of transportation to come see us.

But every now and then, there's a reason to go to the airport.

By the way, do you know that Czech is hosting the world ice hockey championships right now??

Waiting at arrivals, my anticipation was high as it's been a while since I've seen this dear person. Know who was flying in??

Yes, it was Dave! No kidding, even though we've only been apart two weeks while he was in Israel, it made my heart flutter to see him come through those doors.

How glad I am that he's back home safely!

Since he arrived late, we spent the night in Prague, and then enjoyed the city together all day.

Little did we know though that train travel back to Ostrava would be at such a premium.

When we tried to buy tickets home in the afternoon, all trains were sold out until the evening. It might be because of the hockey championships starting tomorrow (matches are being played in both Prague and Ostrava), or it could be because of the Czech holiday tomorrow.

In any case, it meant a few more hours in Prague. Oh well!! That sure wasn't hard to enjoy since he's my favorite person to hang out with!
