    Prague - Day 1

    January 5, 2020 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☀️ 2 °C

    So we set off towards the Old Town on our first day in Prague and I was pleasantly surprised to see the Christmas Markets were still going strong! I think Ed had seen enough Christmas Markets to last a life time and the poor vendors must’ve been over too although they all would finish up on the 6th January so only one more day. And nothing beats the smell of Christmas spices and roasting meats while you explore the city. The astronomical clock is beautiful and our photo doesn’t do it justice as the sun/shadows weren’t in our favour.

    We decided to get a view of the famous Charles Bridge before walking over it and Ed got a great shot of the size and amazing architecture. We wandered up to the Prague Castle and spent a couple of hours exploring its interesting history. The Cathedral in the Castle grounds is a wonder to behold! I also had to include some photos of Ed’s amazing lunch up at the restaurant. My fresh ginger tea was also amazing :)

    On our way down from the Castle we found the famous Stredoveka Krcma (Medieval Tavern) and headed down into the eerie stone pub which has been open daily since 1375. That was an experience!

    Our walk home took us over the Charles Bridge and we had some great views looking over the city (once you manoeuvre around the thousands of tourists and their selfies!)

    A day well spent and some sore legs to put up by the end of the day! Lauren X

    Ed thought they were a little stingy on the meat though haha.

    Chaleur, vertige et plouf

    July 6 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Aujourd’hui, il faisait chaud, voire même très chaud !

    Nous avons commencé notre journée par une visite du quartier Malá Strana, un quartier super mignon remplit de petits parcs et de petits coins hyper sympas au bord de la rivière.

    Ensuite, nous avons pris le funiculaire afin de grimper la colline de Petrìn pour pouvoir ensuite monter dans la fameuse tour (qui ressemble très sincèrement à la Tour Eiffel) pour admirer une vue spectaculaire sur tout Prague et ses alentours. Ça donnait un peu le vertige mais c’était vraiment sympa!

    Avec la chaleur, nous avons décidé de nous rendre à la piscine, ce qui a vraiment été une idée de génie vu la chaleur!

    The GoldenCity & the missing cobblestone

    September 24, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    The last two days I discovered Prague, the beautiful capital of Czech Republic. I was sleeping in a ten bed hostel room right next to Charles Bridge in the old town. Apart from strolling around the city with Steven from Seattle, Jess from Sidney and Valentine from Moscow, I joined a three hour lasting tip-based walking tour. After our tour guide was done with flooding us with information I had to wind down with a couple of beers. On the way back from the pub tour, "someone" came up with the awesome idea for taking the E-scooters which are for rent on every corner. As it quickly turned out, the small wheels don't make the scooters the most comfortable and safe way to get around Prague's cobblestones. Especially not when exhilaration of previous alcohol consumption is your copilot. So it happend inevitably that a missing cobblestone ended my ride right in front of 30 waiting pedestrians at the intersection of the famous Charles bridge pretty suddenly. After my amusing performance I rather continued going on foot...
    Today I am leaving this amazing city and go on heading for Krumlov on the Moldova.

    Prague

    September 12 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    This is an initial post about an extraordinary city that people fall in love with, and I can say rightfully so. This is the 1st post of what will be many and will serve as an introduction and a place to capture a few points that don't fit in categories.
    The 1st picture looks over the city from the castle grounds. The 2nd picture looks across the Vlatava River that runs through Prague. The building is an aristocratic palace with the castle above and behind. The castle and all surrounding buildings are government offices now.
    Vlatava means "wild river "in Czech and the 3rd shows part of the reason. The wall markings are flood levels reached by the river. The most recent is 2002, and that is waaay over my head. The 4th picture is of a canal and waterwheel adjacent to the river that powered an old mill.
    The 5th picture is of the John Lennon wall. This is a wall of the embassy of Malta. So the communist secret police couldn't take permanent action. So every time they whitewashed it, someone would replace the picture overnight.
    The last picture is of what is said to be the 1st building built (1912) using cubist architecture. It is called the Black Madonna" building due to the stature found on site and preserved in the protective structure on the right front corner on the 1st floor. Remember that in most of the world, the 1st floor is the 1st above the ground floor.

    Hemingway Bar

    August 14 in Czech Republic ⋅ 🌙 25 °C

    Endlich wieder Cocktails auf bisher unübertroffenem Niveau - auch wenn sich die Preise seit unserem letzten Besuch schon selbst übertroffen haben 😂. Aber zusammen mit dem Ambiente (sofern man oben an der Bar sitzen kann) ist es noch jeden Tropfen & Cent wert 👍.Read more

    Böhmische Spezialitäten - next Level

    August 23, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Verspätete Mittagspause im kleinen Teil von Prag.

    Nun esse ich zwar nicht gerne Gulasch, aber so ein zartes Fleisch habe ich selten in einem Restaurant angetroffen. Wenn man mit den Messer in die Nähe des Fleisches kommt, gibt es schon bereitwillig den Weg frei und zerteilt sich quasi selbständig - auch Anne ist mit ihrer Gulaschsuppe mehr als zufrieden. Passend dazu die zwei blonden Kollegen...Read more

    Subiendo al Prazsky Hrad

    February 14, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    A la tarde subimos al castillo de Praga, aprovechando que habia bastante sol.

    Recorrimos el palacio antiguo, la catedral de San Vito que nos encanto y es enorme, las murallas, salas de armas y hasta la sala de torturas!

    Es realmente grande para recorrer, y eso que dentro del complejo historico estan los edificios donde funciona en gobierno de Chequia, presidente incluido.

    A la salida del palacio presidencial nos encontramos con un Starbucks, asi que bajamos del castillo tomandonos un Capuccino Vainilla con crema.

    Llegamos a Praga

    February 13, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    El miercoles salimos temprano en tren a Praga. Nos toco a la salida un dia frio de invierno, pero con sol.

    Cuando llegamos a Praga a la tarde ya estaba otra vez nublado, pero recorrimos Mala Strana y la verdad que nos encanto.

    Recorrimos un rato hasta que se hizo de noche.

    Cruzando el Karluv Most

    February 13, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    Frente al hotel tenemos una de las torres del puente viejo que cruza el rio Moldava. Nos queda tan cerca el puente que lo cruzamos cuando ya añochecia.

    Aprovechamos y tambien subimos al mirador de la torre. La vista de la ciudad desde arriba es increible, aunque subir por las escaleras de madera, viejas y empinadas, da un poco de susto.Read more
