I'm trying to book my flights from Spokane to Krakow. There's a flight that gets into Krakow at 11:15 am that I'd love to take. It's only an hour connection in Seattle, but that should be doable if flight is on time. The connection in AMS is just 50 minutes. Alternatively I could fly Spokane to Minneapolis (MSP). There's a longer connection time in MSP and an extra 15 minutes in AMS (1 hr, 5 min connection). I've only been through MSP once and it was a very confusing and huge airport and seems to be noted for delays. The safer flight leaves Spokane around 3 and arrives in Krakow at 5:30 pm. I'd love the have the extra half day there, but don't want to miss my flight or lose my checked bag. (Yes, I will be checking one bag. Sorry.) Any recommendations?
Also, is it safe to drink the tap water in Poland and Prague? (I have 9 nights in Poland and 4 in Prague).
