The following day we had breakfast at our guesthouse – the kids loved this – our place didn’t have a dining room so they brought breakfast to you on trays and we ate picnic style on the floor 🙂
After breakfast we took the train from Cesky Krumlov to Prague – this should have actually been 2 trains, but ended up being 2 trains and a bus in the middle!!! We experienced the matching t-shirt pissed up stag night parties that the brewery towns of the Czech Republic are famous for in the middle of this journey too – which made for an amusing diversion in the middle of our transport diversion!
I love taking trains – they are without doubt my number 1 favourite form of transport – you can walk around (well unless that involves squeezing past the stag parties in cramped corridors!!) – there’s no map reading, no need to stop for food or toilet breaks, you can sleep, read, play games – someone else is doing all the hard work – my enjoyment of train journeys is ironic given I’m probably the only person I know who’s been in a train crash!! And yet I still feel totally safe on a train! Anyway, my love of trains makes me digress….
We arrived in Prague and took a series of trams across the city to find our guesthouse which was over in the happening castle district – right opposite the German Embassy and it’s magnificent doors.
We hung out there for a while, waiting for Tommy’s sister to arrive from her flight from England before we headed off for food, beer, and some time hanging out at a playground with a magnificent view…
tomorrow we explore Prague – and I’m excited… the last time I was here it was still Czechoslovakia!!!
