This fall, My Tailored Travels was a very busy small tour company, taking groups to the United Kingdom and then to Czech Republic, Hungary, and Austria. In late September we voyaged to Ireland, Scotland, and England and we had such unforgettable times with an excellent group. We had surprisingly little rain and so many adventures: we explored castles, toured whisky distilleries (with tastings, of course), enjoyed lovely meals of fresh coastal seafood, shopped on bustling London streets, and got a wonderful personal tour of Cambridge from my friend Robert, a longtime professor at Cambridge University. It was honestly hard to say goodbye to the UK but before too long it was time to get over to The Continent and say hello to a new group to explore three of Europe's most beautiful cities: Prague, Budapest, and Vienna. When I say "new group" I'm not being entirely accurate. Two of our travelers actually journeyed with us on both trips, starting in Dublin and going with us all the way to Vienna--be sure to ask that adventurous couple for packing tips!
Our trip to the capitals of Czech Republic, Hungary, and Austria was so interesting and fun it's hard to pick highlights. These cities are beautiful all year round, but I've always felt there was something very special about visiting in the autumn. Weather was lovely and warm, perfect for long walks around these historic places with our wonderful, tireless guides Katerina (Prague) and Timea (Budapest). We visited some of the world's best art museums, toured a vineyard, listened to a stunning performance of Mozart's Requiem, ate and drank well, and found new places to put on our "must return to" lists, like Prague's Hotel de Paris.
Thanks again to all of the wonderful people who traveled with me this fall, and I hope to see you again on future trips!
