    The rest of the day

    October 26, 2016 in Czech Republic

    So then I find the John Lennon wall. He was never in the republic but they love him here. Lots of student protests and the wall was painted over several times but the graffiti comes back. There is also some nice graffiti here. So I come around the corner and see two guys and one is sitting suspended in the air-wtf? And right across the street is a Thai place where you put your feet into a fish tank and the tiny fish eat the dead skin off your feet-pedicure Thai style-so grotesque but busy. I find the senate buildings and a sign says no guns allowed . And then a park for peacocks. A very odd exit day out of Prague.Read more

    Last night in Prague

    October 26, 2016 in Czech Republic

    Last day of touring around today and so much to write. Made it to the KGB museum which in itself was quite the experience. The orator I swear was ex KGB. Factoid-KGB established in 1917, several secret branches of it, ring leader and his armies used cocaine to be better leaders and to bring up the spirits of the army personnel. Convicts had tattoos of Stalin tattooed on their chests so that if they were ever caught they wouldn't be shot due to honor. Stalin is still #1 in Russia. Check out the photos. The guide had really rough English but was over the top in acting out scenarios and me and the two Scots ripped ourselves laughing.Read more

    Prague-Czech Rep

    October 24, 2016 in Czech Republic

    Took the 10:30 train to Prague today. It was so smooth at 160km/h. Got here at 1:08 pm and walked an extra 8 km before I found my hostel. Google sucks sometimes. But when I got here and found out I was dead centre of the Charles bridge and all the history I booked another night. I don't think I can see this city in two days; it is absolutely jaw dropping and everybody needs to see it just for the architecture and how amazing the buildings are. This is architectural pornography. Sitting at the wine bar next to my hostel and enjoying a 2012 can franc and 2012 Pinot noir. Going for a night tour after to see what's going on.Read more

    City slicking in Prague

    October 25, 2016 in Czech Republic

    Started off on my your at 815 this morning. It was really misty and kept the mobs indoors. I had walked 15km by the time I sat down for lunch. My feet were numb. All the roads are cobblestone and there are no lines to show drivers where to drive (hard to walk on the cobblestones). I took the funicular up to the top of Petrin gardens and then meandered back down to town. I stumbled across the Templar restaurant and had lunch-grilled chicken breast with grilled potatoes, gravy, salas, bread,beer and mineral water all go $10 with tip. Inexpensive to eat here . At the top of the castle grapes were grown with one vine up and not spread over wires for a continuous canopy. Very interesting.Read more

    Prague

    May 29 in Czech Republic

    We arrived in Prague by the end of the afternoon. After checking in and figuring out how the tram system worked, we took the 22 to the city centre. This is a good way to see the city centre, just to position yourself in the city. But actually, we didn't do it on the first day.
    This time we headed towards Charles Bridge, full of tourists even though it was almost dusk. We came here at least two more times and we took numerous pictures of it from different angles. After studying the statues along the bridge, it was time to find a place to eat traditional Czech food, and that's what we did, directly in the city centre.

    Just a cultural tip about the bridge: Czech legend has it that construction began on Charles Bridge at 5:31am on 9 July 1357 with the first stone being laid by Charles IV himself.

    Evening in Prague

    October 24, 2016 in Czech Republic

    Took some shots of Prague by night. There is some magical karma here in city! It is a gorgeous night view. Sharing my hostel room with 5 guys.

    Auf der Karlsbrücke

    July 6, 2017 in Czech Republic

    Die Karlsbrücke (tschechisch Karlův most) ist eine im 14. Jahrhundert errichtete, historisch bedeutsame Brücke über die Moldau in Prag, die die Altstadt mit der Kleinseite verbindet. Sie ist die älteste erhaltene Brücke über den Fluss Moldau und eine der ältesten Steinbrücken Europas. Die Brücke erhielt ihren heutigen Namen erst im Jahr 1870, sie gilt als Wahrzeichen der Stadt und gehört zu den Nationalen Kulturdenkmälern. Über die Brücke führte der Krönungsweg der böhmischen Könige.Read more

    Little Venice?

    October 7, 2015 in Czech Republic

    Last day in Prague was a bit grey and drizzly. Still lots to see and do. We wandered down towards the Charles Bridge looking for an area that was described as Prague's version of Venice, complete with canal. I thought I knew where it was but I was wrong (now there's a surprise). But we did find a boat cruise leaving in 5 minutes which included... Little Venice. It was a good tour and just the thing for a drizzly day. The guy driving the boat and providing commentary didn't think that Little Venice was remotely like Venice but that it had been used in movies - mainly as it was cheaper - The League of Gentlemen for one.
    After our boat ride we still had plenty of time to wander around on our own. We tracked down the Lennon Wall (as in John) which was the site of various protests against the Russians and came complete with stories of the Russians painting it all out only to find it all back again the next day.
