    Prague day 2

    October 18, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Today we’re off on a bus/boat/walking tour of Prague (that includes lunch at a medieval style restaurant). The tour goes for about 6 hours. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable and the other people,on the tour, were pretty good too - I’m sure they thought the same of us. You might have thought I’d forgotten to tell you we had breakfast after we got up this morning - but I’m telling you now 😛. It was a great tour exploring much of the old city (the palace, Jewish Ghetto etc). One of the Cathedrals had to be rebuilt and some of the funds were raised through commercial sponsorships - first time we’d seen stained-glass windows advertising an insurance company🤔

    There was quite a mix of people on the tour, us, a couple of Poms, some Israelis and others. About 1/2 the group were either Jewish or Muslim - this is important to note. We had pre-ordered our lunch so it would be ready soon after arriving at the restaurant. I had the pork roast which was nice, but I had a couple of things on my plate that I was unsure of what it was. Anne decided to help me out with this and not thinking about the structure of the group she asked the entire group, a couple of times (including the couple from Israel who were sitting across from us) “anyone else have the pork?”- this was met with silence and lots of head shaking. It took a couple of seconds (which felt like minutes) before Anne realised what she had said. Thankfully no one was insulted and afterwards We had a (guilty) laugh at her gaff.

    The boat trip was about an hour and gave a pretty good view from the river.

    A lot of the buildings have a basement that used to be the ground floor. Flooding meant they had to go higher and adding floors was the most effective way of doing it.

    A really good and interesting day.

    Prague day 3

    October 19, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Repeat after me “Happy birthday to Maurice, you look fantastic”. It’s my birthday!!!!

    Late start and out for breakfast - croissant with egg and cheese and a second one with butter and jam - birthday breakfast. Anne a more tempered breakfast (just one croissant 🥐).

    A walk around the more modern part of Prague (including a river island). In the evening we went back to Wenceslas Square - the people really do come out at night to eat drink and be merry. They do like a 🍺 in Prague (young men, old women - even kids I think). Back to the apartment so Anne can pack for us to leave for Brno in the morning - only fair as I have to be alert to drive....Read more

    Wroclaw to Prague

    October 16, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    For those that missed me - Maurice is back.

    Really comfortable room with breakfast included!! Stayed off the motorways and took the backroads to Prague - a really winter-time looking day with trees losing their leaves (looks like yellow snow) leaving a beautiful carpet of yellow on the forest floor. Staying off highways makes for a great drive, apart from having to slow down quite a bit. Staying on the backroads means lots of little villages and quite slow travel. 90 kph, 70 kph then 50 kph - repeat over and over again (not sure how many speeding tickets I might have ☹️). Got to Prague late afternoon (staying at the same apartments, in the city centre, I did 3 years ago when I toured by motorbike). European city centres are easier to navigate by motorbike, than by car, as you can hop up on the footpath if it all goes wrong - try that in a car and the pedestrians are much less understanding!!! Add in one-way streets, traffic signs you can’t understand, narrow lanes and then throw in trams, well it’s interesting to say the least. We got there finally (still no dents on the 🚙) and I had a lie down!!!!. Had a walk around - tomorrow we’ll explore (but leave the car at home 🤔).Read more

    Prague - day 1

    October 17, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    Naturally, we had breakfast.

    Headed off the the “old town” and nearly sprained an ankle on the cobble stone streets. Some of the best sights are in the old town parts of the cities with churches and cathedrals being museums and windows into the past - some really are quite glorious. They make a type of barrel donut called a trdelink - there’re sold as a traditional sweet but apparent that’s just a tourist gimmick. Who cares, I love them so I had about 4 !!!!!!. Anne cooked steak and salad for dinner - 2 inch thick crown rib-eye steak. I know we have the best meat back in Australia, but this was a fantastic piece of beef and at a cheaper price than back home (about $25 per kg it worked out at).

    Carl is flying into Rome on 14th Nov, for three weeks, so we spent a bit of time planning an itinerary so we can meet him there - we’re looking forward to doing some travel with him before he flys out of Paris back to Sydney on 6th Dec. We’re going to fly out on the same day but we’re going to go Tokyo for 4 nights on the way back to Brisbane.

    Tomorrow we’re on a 6 hour tour of the city - more walking!!!

    Donuterie

    March 26, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    Lunchtime doughnut and hot chocolate. I'm not exaggerating when I say this is the best doughnut I've ever had. Off the tourist path and nestled in a little side street.

    Chocolate orange doughnut for now and a white chocolate raspberry to take away!

    Castle

    January 4 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☁️ 4 °C

    An unseren zweiten Tag in Prag haben wir erst mal mit Pancakes in den Tag gestartet🥞😍 Das Cafe war relativ klein, aber super gut besucht. Wir sind genau zur richtigen Zeit dort gewesen und haben noch einen Platz bekommen. Nach uns mussten die Leute draußen in der Kälte auf einen Platz warten😱.Danach haben wir eine free walking tour zum Castle in Prag gemacht. Die Tour war super gut und echt interessant. Unser Guide Mel hat wirklich interessante Informationen über das Schloss und die Könige berichtet. Besonders cool war eine Art Podest, dass den Schall eines Mikrofons verstärkt wenn man in eine bestimmte Richtung spricht. Das war lustig es selbst mal auszuprobieren, weil man sich selbst und die eigene Stimme ganz anders wahrgenommen hat. Der Berg mit dem Schloss ist aber nicht nur ein Gebäude wie man jetzt vermuten könnte, sondern kann als eigene kleine Stadt beschrieben werden. Es gibt beispielsweise eine Kirche, die mich tatsächlich sehr an den Kölner Dom erinnert hat😂aber seht selbst.

    Abends haben Natalia und ich noch an einer Bier Tour teilgenommen. Das heißt wir waren in drei verschiedenen Pubs und haben dort insgesamt 5 verschiedene Biere verkostet und natürlich erstmal gelernt wie mal auf Tschechisch anstößt😂
    Nachdem die anfängliche Zurückhaltung aller Teilnehmer durch das ein oder andere Bier gesunken ist, haben wir echt super coole und schöne Gespräche geführt, sodass sich der Abend bis zum nächsten Morgen ausgedehnt hat. Für mich war es ein besonderer Abend, weil ich so viele nette Leute kennengelernt habe und es alles sehr locker verlaufen ist und alle wussten, dass es nur eine Bekanntschaft für diesen Abend war. Vor allem habe ich mich super mit einem homosexuellen Paar verstanden, die echt super lieb waren und eine interessante Beziehungsgeschichte zu berichten hatten. Was auch super cool war, ist dass ich ein Kompliment dafür bekommen habe, dass ich die ganze Zeit auf Englisch weiter rede, obwohl von 9 Leuten 5 Deutsch sprechen konnten😂habe mich sehr über das Kompliment gefreut, weil ich früher selbst immer aus Unsicherheit ins deutsche übergegangen bin und diesmal nicht!

    Restaurant U Provanznice

    January 4 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☁️ 4 °C

    Nach der U Bahn sind wir bei der 3 Station Mustak ausgestiegen, und haben mal ein Restaurant gesucht um unseren Hunger zu stillen. Das Personal sehr unfreundlich , essen war okay . Die verlangten sogar 10% Trinkgeld, weil es zu wenig war , was wir gegeben haben . Das ist der Knaller.
    Aber wie sagt man : guter Service gutes Trinkgeld.Read more
