Poland & Czech Republic

Day twelve on the Road to 2021 began in Warsaw with a quick change of plans. Instead of staying in Poland and traveling on to Krakow, the team decided to head straight to the next country on the list: the Czech Republic. So, with the destination changed, the team enjoyed their last day in Poland with a tour of the capital and managed to sneak another car wash in too (the cars needed it after the fun the drivers had the day before!)

 

With no meetings on the calendar, the team was able to take a leisurely drive to Prague, which was good because the rain stopped them from doing much exploring on their route. They did get to talk to a number of locals though on their drive, so the day wasn’t without excitement. When they reached Prague in the evening, they had traveled 467 miles and driven 7 hours 59 mins.
