As you probably know, Doug and I recently travelled through a few places in eastern Europe. It was my first time travelling, and I thought I'd share with you all the ups & downs, and beautiful scenery. Our first stop was Prague!
We arrived in the evening, and met our friend Bara at our hostel just after we'd arrived. She's from Prague, so was our tour guide for the evening. She took us on the tram to a restaurant in her neighbourhood, followed by a bar by the river. It was a lovely first evening away, and so awesome to catch up with a friendly face that we hadn't seen in over a year!
The next day was mostly spent exploring by ourselves. We had Czech pancakes with a crazy amount of toppings for breakfast - nutella & ice cream for me, blueberries for Doug - we were on holiday after all!
With full bellies, we caught the metro up to the castle, which was stunning. The stained glass inside the cathedral was the most beautiful I'd ever seen, and the views across the red rooftops..
We followed the cobbled streets down the hill and across the bridge, touching the lucky dog on the way. On the other side we explored the old town and saw the famous astronomical clock, although we didn't stick around to see it do whatever it is that it does.
Bara was in the area with her family & boyfriend, so we met them for wine before heading to U Houmra - a Simpsons-themed restaurant! Be warned - there is no English translation on this menu. However, the fried cheese was crazy good.
• seeing Bara!
• pretty coloured buildings & cute streets
• the castle
• creamy, cheesy food..
WHAT I'D DO DIFFERENTLY:
• different hostel - ours was noisy & no curtains!
• see the clock do its thing
