    Dag 8: biertuin

    August 27, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Vandaag weer de stad in. Paar van de jongens wou kijken naar nieuwe schoenen, hobby spullen en natuurlijk bier. In de middag gegeten bij de KFC.

    Daarna naar een winkel gegaan voor magic spullen om misschien nog mooie deal te scoren. Daarna de berg opgeklommen aan de andere kant van de rivier om een biertuin op te zoeken met mooi uitzicht. Uitzicht was zeker mooi over de binnenstad van Praag.

    In de avond lekker gegeten bij een mexicaans/ Italiaans restaurant. Ik heb daar pizza gegeten.
    Op de terugweg langs een avond winkel gelopen voor ijs en drank.

    In het appartement begonnen we met een pepermunt likeur en daarna hoop drank verder. Rond 12 uur in de nacht was John erg dronken dat hij naar bed is begeleid en is de rest ook maar gestopt. Ik zelf was ik goed ver. (Nu ik dit in de ochtend tik voel ik ook nog beetje draaierig). Maar was wel een leuke avond.

    September 22, 2015 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    The bus is late again........but this seems to be the happening thing in Europe. This time it was an overnight from Warsaw to Prague taking about 11 hours. Trav was not impressed that his fancy TV screen was broken but we both managed to get some sleep after knocking back some melatonin.

    There was a random security check just inside the Czech Republic border where we had to dismount from the bus with our luggage and stand a line for the sniffer dogs. Suki's bag got picked out and then half heartedly searched by a police officer probably trying to top up his weed stash.

    Checked into our Airbnb room which was a little like a hostel with the amount of rooms however the location and proximity to the old town was brilliant.

    After a nap from the limited sleep on the bus we set off to explore. First stop was a picturesque rooftop bar overlooking the old town as the sun set in the background. With great tasting cheap beer it was hard to leave although for dinner we took a short walk through the old town and had a massive pork knuckle to share for dinner at a 500 year old brewery.

    The next day we walked to the otherside of the river and explored the magnificent castle area and did a small hike to get up one of the surrounding hills which hosts a Eiffel Tower replica. On the way home we walked along the famous Charles bridge watching the tour boats and paddle boats navigate the river below.

    It's only been a short stay but we've loved Prague and the price of food and beer here makes everything a little more special.

    If it's going to rain... it should pour.

    June 26, 2016 in Czech Republic ⋅ 🌧 19 °C


    We had a flight from Dublin to Prague using Ryanair. The flight was mainly spend sleeping, but it was great to experience Ryanair for a second time. This experience was much more worth it. YAY.

    Landing in Prague became a culture shock as most signs are written in Czech and our AirBnB street was not displayed in any of the maps as it is a small street. The Hilton Old Town Prague was generous enough to explain the directions to our place. It was only a short walk from the metro station.

    Our AirBnB is located beside a small Czech restaurant, the Grand Cru. It was very welcoming. Once entering the apartment we were immediately wowed by the layout. It has so much has so much room. With our own space, the girls and I became a human washing machine. We got some of our clothes washed and hung up before we went into the city area (it is so humid that our clothes are taking a long time to dry).

    We walked along the canal to St-Charles Bridge. It was hear we rubbed the statue for good luck - more luck is coming our way. We walked into Prague, Old Town to explore. We returned the other way to get the famous donut ice cream comes. Yup, we were blown away by this delicious dessert. Here, we met two Canadians who have been traveling since May 17th. Their trip is coming to an end and they'll be back in Edmonton.

    We decided on explore the streets. There were many bachelor and Bachelorette parties happening. Here, it appears, that the bride/groom where one outfit and their bridal party/groomsmen wore the same outfit. It was SO AWESOME to see. We tried to join in.

    When the rain started, we found a supermarket and bought some food. It costed us about 3$ each (Canadian). Oh and this includes wine 🙌. In the market, the teller nearly robbed us of money arguing that we shouldn't have any change back, but she corrected her mistake once we repeated it. Then, we walked around Prague in the pouring rain to our place.

    Showered, dried hair, OITNB, and bed. 😪

    Ankuft am Hotel. Erstmal einchecken und dann das Oberdeck erkunden. Amigo findet gleich eine Verehrerin. 😊
    Hier kann man sehr gemütlich sitzen, also habe ich mir erstmal ein Alkoholfreies gegönnt und dann sind wir planlos in die Stadt rein gegangen. Die Stadt war unheimlich voll. Sowas bin ich fast nicht mehr gewöhnt. Amigo hat viel zu schnuppern. Am Geldautomaten werde ich leider nicht wirklich positiv überrascht. 9 % Gebühren an die Bank und der Wechselkurs, dass macht 8-9 € on top 😖

    Am Abend esse ich im Hotel-Restaurant. Wir saßen erst draußen auf der Terrasse (nenne ich jetzt mal so), aber leider fängt es an zu Donnern und Amigo zittert wieder wie Espenlaub. Wir haben uns dann rein gesetzt. Scheinbar war ein Männergesangsverein an Board, die ihre Seemanns- und Heimatlieder zum Besten gaben. Ich fand es irgendwie nett. Es gab aber im Speiseraum noch ein Herrenduo, welches sich ausgiebig genervt zeigte. Auch das Bier war ihnen nicht recht. Solche Leute finde ich im Urlaub nervend.

    Zurück auf der Kajüe hat Amigo das Bad bezogen. Zwischendurch hat er mal geschaut ob ich noch da bin, aber beschlossen dort zu bleiben.
