We had a plan for the last weekend of March. The kids had Friday off for a teacher work day, so Dan planned to take off of work and we were finally going to go to Prague for the weekend — a destination which has been on our list since we moved to Vienna.
When planning travel, especially with kids, it’s so important to have a “plan B” in mind, because things don’t always work out as planned. In this case, Liam spent almost an entire week sick with an on again/off again fever leading up to our intended trip, and a trip to Prague just wasn’t going to be the right choice for us. So, at the last minute, we decided not to go.
It was hard to give up the plan that we were all so excited about, but we made the right choice. By Monday, Liam was well again, but the next day, B got sick and then I followed him. In short, we are just now coming off of 2+ weeks with at least one of us sick, and our trip to Prague was intended to be right in the middle of that.
It’s a bummer, because we were really looking forward to finally seeing Prague, and we had found a great (and not too expensive) place to stay (which B helped me pick out, and he was SO excited to go). But it’s ok — Prague has been there for a long time, and it isn’t going anywhere. We’ll just have to wait a bit longer for our chance to see it.
