    Night at the Opera

    August 23, 2019 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, 2019 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.

    Prague - 2nd beer capital of the world

    December 5, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☁️ -1 °C

    Czechs are rude! Very rude..... but that's how they are. Rude to each other. Rude to their wives, husbands, children, strangers. So that didn't make us feel too bad when Rach got told to bugger off as she watched a Christmas market stall holder load hams onto a spit. So we did and got ham off a very nice man (well he didn't swear at us, so we have taken that as being polite in Prague).

    Old town is amazing, but busy. Full of tourists..... the cheek of it, getting in the way of us "travellers". I reckon there were 2000 people in the old town square watching the astrological clock strike 9. So 1991 people luckily avoided injury. Crazy busy man.

    Beer here is easier drinking than in Munich, as the pour it with a large head and that de-gases it quite a bit. Oh and the mulled wine warms you up perfectly when its -2!

    Chilled afternoon today (Sunday) Rach's mum & sis have headed back home and we are going on a nighttime tour of Prague Castle.

    Met our fellow cruise passengers last night. 95% from US & A (Borat {hi five!} ). Hmmm let's see how we go......

    Another day for sight seeing. Weather looks better...thank goodness. Took a cruise on the river Moldau through Old Prague. We sat in the front of course. We went on a smaller boat which took us through some smaller waterways which reminded me of Venice. But this is Cleaner! Some dark clouds hover over head.Read more

    The Charles Bridge is a great tourist attraction. It joins the historic quarters of Stare Mentor and Mala Strana. Heaps of tourists. Also artists line the bridge selling painting,jewelry and playing music. Religious statues also line the bridge on both sides .

    For our last night we visited the Horror Thrill Dungeon. It was pretty good.
    Then as a family we all ate some Indian food and then headed into town. We went to a neat cocktsil bar with no menu, the man asks you what you like and figures something out. We walked through the streets to the big old gothic bridge.Read more
