Jamie Durie's 'Space Ship' European cruise: part two

17:30 AEST Sat Oct 12 2013

Jamie Durie, his fiancée Lisa and their fellow-passengers were wondering if their 15 day ‘Jewels of Europe’ journey with Scenic Tours could get any better.

Travelling on one of Scenic's nine 'Space-Ships' they had taken in the delights of Budapest in Hungary, and Vienna, Durnstein and Melk in Austria. Everything on board and shore excelled expectations and it was a lifestyle easy to settle into.

Next stop the Czech Republic. The country is landlocked by Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Poland. As Czechoslovakia, it was a sovereign state from October 1918 when it declared its independence from the Austro-Hungarian empire. In 1993 it peacefully became two countries - the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
