Let’s get out of here

Original YT playout date: 7 November 2009
Duration: 22:53

Into and back out of Prague

Original YT playout date: 31 October 2009
Duration: 1:03:03

Prague Vlog #8 – Driving to Prague from Warsaw

Original YT playout date: 16 August 2009
Duration: 21:58

We start off with the battle of the conflicting GPS fembots, and then get into all kinds of traffic in Upper Silesia. Very little of this one actually takes place in the Czech Republic, but you do get to see the border at Nachod.
