    Well this city was unexpected for sure. Wasn't sure what it would be like I thought I had done enough research but I was pleasantly surprised. It's incredible. Number 2 on my favourite list for sure

    Well worth a visit.

    Had then pleasure of visiting so much today and my hostel was so close I could walk which was amazing.

    Took 5 attempts to use the cash machine cause there is to many 0's in the money haha but I got there.

    Very much in love with Budapest and will be back for a long weekend.

    Last day in Prague

    February 19, 2020 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☁️ 3 °C

    Well I can't believe I have been here already for 2 days ..... it's gone so fast.

    This city is incredible. The architecture is like a masterpiece on ever corner, waking under arches and over bridges that have been there for hundreds of years. The colour and the vibrancy of the place makes you feel alive right from entering the city. From street performers to smoked sausage and ham on the streets to legends and myths at every corner.

    It has been an incredible experience and one which I will absolutely be coming back to experience again.

    First day in Prague

    February 18, 2020 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    After my overnight journey to Prague I arrives at 8am. I wasn't able to check into my hostel so dumped my bag there and went for a free walking tour.

    This city is incredible. I feel like I'm back in a main spot again.

    Really is something special there.

    Can't wait to go exploring again tomorrow

    Last day in Krakow

    February 17, 2020 in Poland ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C

    Well sitting waiting on my first overnight sleeper train to continue my travels into Czech Republic and I must say I'm happy to move on.

    Krakow is lovely in the square and surrounding areas and the trip yesterday with my mum and Sarah was an experience however I must say the following.

    If your coming to Krakow just be prepared to be stopped a fair amount by people wanting money or cigarettes (at least i think that's what they wanted).

    Have to say I don't feel 100% comfortable on my own in this city and its the first time I have felt like that. Maybe it's cause I'm a girl and on my own but I'm so glad I have done it and visited it but I don't think I'll come back anytime soon. I have met some nice people in my accomodation but I'm ready to get on that train now for sure.

    We had a great weekend together, so glad we chose this weekend to join you. I didn’t enjoy Krakow either and certainly didn’t feel it was a safe city. However the experience of Auschwitz and the Schindler factory was amazing. Hope you enjoy the wonderful city of Prague. Xx
