  • Day18

    Night at the Opera

    August 23 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Our first day in Prague consisted of a walk around the old town taking in the Astronomical clock at 11am followed by the Charles Bridge and Jewish Quarter before heading back to the clock to go up the tower and take a tour.

    We had a late lunch at Café Louvre before going back to our hostel to shower and change before heading out to the Estates Theatre for the Opera of Don Giovanni, which we watched from our private box (thanks Grandma).

    Arrival in Prague

    August 22 in Czech Republic ⋅ 🌙 16 °C

    There were some lovely sights from the train. A red sunset and quaint villages. It was a painless arrival and check in at the last hostel and now we’re in bed ready for an early-ish start tomorrow.

    Statue Franz Kafkas

    42 bewegliche Ebenen der elf Meter hohen Skulptur formen das Gesicht des bekannten tschechischen Schriftstellers Franz Kafka. Diese 39 Tonnen schwere Büste des Künstlers David Černý steht seit November 2014 neben dem neuen Einkaufszentrum Quadrio, direkt über der Metrostation Národní!

    World War 2 and Anthropoid tour

    March 24 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☁️ 9 °C

    Interesting tour today focused on World War 2 and the Operation Anthropoid. Saw the church where the incredible parachutists who assassinated Reinhard Heydrich fought bravely for 6 hours against the Gestapo, eventually giving their lives rather than being captured. Met Jakob, a brilliant tour guide, who has introduced me to Prague beer. I don't drink beer but this may have converted me...Read more

    Wenzelsplatz

    August 22 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Auf ging es heute mit dem Radel durch Prag. Wir hatten Glück und waren die einzigen 2 Teilnehmer der Tour in deutsch durch Prag. Der Wenzelsplatz war der erste Stop. Unsere Reiseführerin war sehr nett und hat uns viele interessante Informationen zur Geschichte gegeben. Der Platz in der Mitte von Prag wurde 1848 nach dem Heiligen Wenzel von Böhmen benannt, nachdem er im Mittelalter und der Neuzeit als Pferdemarkt den Mittelpunkt der Prager Neustadt bildete. Die Breite von etwa 60 m entspricht der Definition nach eher einer Prachtstraße als einem Platz. Read more

    Tag 3 - Prag

    July 17 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    40 km / 190 km - 3 / 15 Stunden

    Ausgaben:

    0 € / 5 € Transport (Fähre, etc.)
    15 € / 21 € Lebensmittel
    11 € / 11 € Unterkunft

    26 € / 37 € Gesamt

    Zugegeben, die Zeit ist geschummelt. Aber in die eine, oder andere Richtung gleichermaßen Blödsinn.
    Nach einer langen Reise schiebend durch die Stadt, bin ich jetzt im Hostel angekommen. Couchsurfing scheint ja nur noch eine Plattform der Ablehnung zu sein, sofern Mann keine Frau ist.
    Also ab ins 8-Bett-Zimmer und Pause machen.
    Meine Sprunggelenk tut weh.

    Tag 4 - Prag

    July 18 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    0 km / 190 km - 0 / 15 Stunden

    Ausgaben:

    0 € / 5 € Transport (Fähre, etc.)
    8 € / 29 € Lebensmittel
    11 € / 22 € Unterkunft

    19 € / 56 € Gesamt

    Mein Sprunggelenkt tut noch immer weh.
    Vor allem in Flipflops. Wen wundert das? So ganz ohne halt.
    Mit den richtigen Schuhen geht es dann in die Stadt raus. Wer nicht rosten will, sollte nicht rasten. Außerdem muss ich sehen, wie sich mein Fuß entwickelt.

    Am Ende des Tages werde ich sagen, dass es ganz gut war, eine Runde spazieren zu gehen. Und gleichermaßen gar nicht gut, gleich so lang zu gehen.
    Aber es wird sich alles zum Guten entwickeln.

    Prague - should have been 4 nights

    August 26, 2016 in Czech Republic ⋅ 🌙 22 °C

    I did a selfie.

    Wow, what a beautiful, lively and very historic city - just incredible. Rode down from Teplice, again staying on back roads. Stopped at a village for lunch and asked for a cup of tea. Got a very quizzical look and ended up with a large glass of lukewarm water, a tea bag and a couple of satchels of milk - ahh well, it was ok.

    I was actually a bit apprehensive about going into Prague but a guy at a motorbike shop in in Dresden said I was crazy if I didn't. Him - "You go to Prague ya?" Me - "probably not". Him - "ya you go to Prague , if no you a #€$&@#%*&&@£€¥%^#¥ crazy Aussie". Some of it was in English, some in German and some from every language he knew a swear word from. Then he turned to another guy in the shop, and I'm guessing, told him "this $&@$ dumb Aussie is riding into the Czech Republic and not going to Prague". Well, I thought I'd already learnt a few new words I probably wouldn't get to use very often, but this guy was a linguist without compare, and a very good mime as well (maybe Italian?). Anyway, that's pretty much how I ended up coming to Prague.

    And they were right... what fabulous place. Cathederals, jewish ghetto, statues and monuments, bridges, worlds biggest castle, riverside cafes, restaurants, clubs, high end stores, horse-drawn carts, hyper sports cars, cobble stone streets, sex shops and people, ordinary everday people, having beer with breakfast (not me obviously, and not beer for breakfast either). I did a walking tour the first day and used that to work out what to go back and see. You could easily fill a few weeks here.

    Stayed in a small studio apartment (centre of town) clean comfortable with satellite TV, kitchenette and private locked parking for about $80 a night - pretty cheap.

    I had heard about the "Lennon" wall without paying too much attention thinking with the Czech Republic's communist and Russian background it would be that "Lenin". (Lenin/Lennon - bloody Czech accent). Well it turns out it was the "John Lennon" wall. A place, during communist rule, where students and others used to write and paint images and words of peace and change mostly based on Beatles/Lennon lyrics. The previous communist regieme tried for ages to cover it over and there were many clashes and protests. In the end they gave up. When I visited there were heaps of people singing (mainly "imagine" like bad karaoke) and milling around - a peaceful spot that fits in with the city.

    I went for a walk about late one night and got a bit lost - not only a great city, but seems a safe one, I did go down a few dark alleys looking for a way out and no-one approached me. Hell I even got offered drugs in Nimbin on a Good Friday!!!!!

    Anyway one of the best places I've ever visited, thanks to a couple of world class swearers!!!!

    Next stop Brno, 3 days after the Motogp, hows that for timing.

    Cheers
