Home thoughts from abroad is a new series on Travel Words featuring a single photograph that reminds me of a country visited and showing something that uniquely identifies it as being ‘abroad’.
One of the best things about Prague is the transport system. Buy a pass to cover how long you are in the city to make it easy to get around. Trams and the metro are plentiful and hopping from one to the other simple. Although I prefer to walk around a city, we stayed a little way out of the centre and the weather wasn’t all that good in late September. Cold and wet. So I happily used trams to take me closer to where I wanted to explore.

I agree about Prague’s transport system. We used it when we were there too. 🙂
Definitely abroad! 🙂
When we went to Prague, we walked everywhere, even though it was January, and quite cold. But we were only there for three nights, so didn’t got too far from the centre.
Best wishes, Pete. x
I liked the way the colours of the overalls the workmen are wearing matched the tram in this shot. It was quite wet when we were there, not so nice to walk in. I was heading for the metro on this day to go into the centre.
Love the guys in red. 🙂 🙂
I liked them too -match the tram colour!
My first reaction when I saw this picture was that it was in Toronto! It easily could be!!
Horray for a good public transport system. In the last few years, I’ve tended to prefer accommodation just outside the CBD and have begun to use buses, trams, etc more. It’s become part of the pleasure of being in another city.
I love trams, and the red co-ordination is great!!
Trams are great! They don’t get stuck in traffic like buses and you can see a lot out the windows.
Yes, trams are a good idea in cities. Though we have bus lanes in many of ours too, so they can get through the traffic.
Brisbane has a busway and it’s great. The buses just continue on with no hold ups.
