    Prague, Czech Republic!

    August 22, 2016 in Czech Republic

    Vicky's brother Ali was visiting Prague with his friend Tom so we crossed over the Czech / German border and went to meet them!

    We were greeted at the border with advertisements for casinos, erotic cities and cigarettes. We were also soon to discover that when there were roadworks taking place, there weren't diversions like in Germany, there were sections of unsurfaced road for you to drop on to and rumble along! After a rather hair raising drive with more than one car coming towards us in the middle of the road and seemingly random speed limits with no distinct end, we arrived at the campsite we'd booked on an island in the River Vltava, just 4.5km out of Prague city centre.

    We cycled into the centre (no riverside cycle track this time!) and met up with Ali and Tom at the hotel. We ate out and explored Prague by night. Prague is a truly beautiful city and we'd definitely recommend viewing by night as well as by day.

    After having spent nearly 2 months away from the UK, we were struck by the number of people speaking English! Even approaching midnight there were huge crowds of tourists speaking innumerable langauges. Whilst German is the Czech Republic's second language, the capital city was set up for tourists with English as a first and second language.

    We took a stroll over the famous Charles Bridge with its 12 statues, checked out Czech beer in a few pubs (very tasty!) and discovered some full size bronze horses that Vicky hopped up on and started a trend!

    Basic Buzzfeed Biotches

    June 27, 2016 in Czech Republic

    Touchdown in Prague! After a very nice flight on Ryanair (surprisingly) we grabbed our bags and started on our adventure. We ventured to the bus and navigated our way on that plus 2 metros to get to the airbBnB we were staying at. After being pointed in the right direction by a lovely lady at the Hilton, we cound the apartment we were staying at on top of a beautiful restaurant called Grand Cru. The waiters gave us the keys and showed us the apartment... Which was HUGE. Honestlyy there were 2 giant bedrooms with 2 beds in them each, a licing area, kitchen, and bathroom ALL TO OURSELVES. AirbNb is definitely highly recommended.

    So the first things we do (obviously) is wash our clothes on the bathtub. The three of us became human washing machines and used our vast muscle strength to irrigate the water and then to dry it all out after... Honestly most hilarious thing ever.

    Anywayyyy after hanging the clothes, we ambled off into Prague to explore! It was a beautiful stroll.. We took in the sights and amazing architecture (honestly this was one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen) and walked across the famous St. Charles Bridge where we rubbed a statue for good luck.

    After all of this, Taylor reminded us of an ice cream that is famous in Prague because its INSIDE A CONE SHAPED DONUT. No seriously HOW AMAZING DOES THAT SOUND???? So we stole some (shitty) Starbucks wifi and found the original store that invented it and was featured on Buzzfeed. The store was called Good Food and let me tell you........ They were not lying.

    These are fries cone donuts with APPLE STRUDEL INSIDE AND CHOCOLATE ON THE BOTTOM AND ICE CREAM ON TOP AND OMG THEY WERE FREAKING AMAZING AHHHHHH.

    So as we sat outside ob the bench and ate those little piecea of heaven, a Canadian woman was standing in front of us reading the sign (iI coild tell because her hat waa from Aritzia). We chatted with her and her fiance for a while aboit life anx decided to try and find a grocery store to pick up food for lunch and dinner the next day.

    After making a brief pitstop at a fountain to pet a dog (obviously) and attempting to crash a bunch of bachelor parties, we found a store. Im not going to go too much into it because the lady at the counter was RUDE AS ALL HELL AND TRIED TO STEAL 50KRC FROMB US but it was mostly an uneventful experience.

    The wall home, though long, was wonderful .. Until it started to absolutely downpour. Honestlybit didnt even matter because we were so exhausted and happy that we just madebour way home, soaking but smiling.

    Thats it for day 1! More shenanigans to follow

    R&L's Adventure: Prague, Czech Republic

    June 24, 2016 in Czech Republic

    Oh Prague! What a beautiful city! The evening view of the palace from the Charles Bridge is breathtaking. With a mere 24 hours in Prague, we were thrilled to find our lodgings only a 10min walk to the action with gorgeous window views. As we walked to the city center we remarked on the number of people out & about. We were slightly taken aback as the number of people steadily increased. At one point we stopped to see what everyone was crowded around looking at and lo & behold, the philharmonic orchestra was playing as we passed over a bridge. The masses of tourists were just crazy! After a night's sleep we set out to tackled it during the day. After an extremely hot uphill walk thru the masses, we arrived at Prague Castle. We looked, we saw, we hired a vintage car to take us the rest of the way around the city. Fighting the throngs of people, or as we said thongs of people who creep up where you don't want them, was not what we were in the mood to deal with. The car tour thru the city including the jewish quarter was exhilarating. We found it interesting that apparently, it's a growing trend in Asia to go to Prague to get married. We saw several brides braving the heat & humidity in full wedding gowns wallking around followed by photographers lugging cases of equipment. And the photographer in Lana could see why. Even the geometric designs on all of the sidewalks & old world water fountains are picturesque. What's next on our whirlwind tour? Ljubljana, SloveniaRead more

    Arrival Prague, Czech Republic

    May 2, 2016 in Czech Republic

    🛬Arrived at Prague Airport. Very empty only our passengers. Luckily our bag came up very fast. Norwegian was a great experience.
    We were greeted by our hotel driver whose sign read "MARY & NADY". We laughed and figured that had to be US. The driver a nice young man who spoke great english. He had spent 6 months in England as a bartender. The car...a beautiful BLACK MERCEDES which was very clean. Arrived to the red carpet at our beautiful hotel. Our room was nicer than we thought. Rose pedals on the bed, champagne bottle and a very nice welcome card. Our view...."AMAZINGLY GORGEOUS". I can't believe how green everything is.
    Had our champagne and toasted to the Beginning of a Trip that we will remember forever❣

    Prague

    April 7, 2016 in Czech Republic

    Prag ist die Hauptstadt der Tschechischen Republik. Über viele Jahrhunderte hinweg begegneten sich in der Stadt an der Moldau böhmische, deutsche und jüdische Kultur, deren Zeugnisse man heute in vielen Häusern, Kirchen, Burgen und Museen beim Urlaub in Prag besichtigen kann. Das Stadtbild ist in seiner Geschlossenheit hervorragend erhalten und in seiner Architektur von Gotik und Barock dominiert.
