I came home yesterday from a 3-day trip to Prague with my friend Mira-Belle. It was a pretty spontaneous decision to go to the Czech Republic but I had a really good time!
Our bus (we travelled with meinfernbus) was so luxurious with a little TV on every seat. We watched "Up", "i-robot", "Avatar", "Surf's up" and "Step up 2 the Streets" during two 10-hour-rides.
The day after we arrived, we went up the hill to see the castle and the cathedral. It was really impressive and on our way back, it started to snow - like really bad. The weather was crazy anyway, we had sun, rain, snow, hail...just everything. We saw a lot more that day like the city center, the astronomical clock, and some shops, but I don't take a lot of pictures, cause I think you should see through your eyes - not your camera. I saved all those impressions in my mind ;)
I took a few polaroids too. The guy on the left is Tommy, our host. We travelled with couchsurfing which I can only recommend to anyone! He and his roommate are from Britain and were so kind to let us stay all three days.
We dined at this place called "Javánka and co." which was just up the road twice. They have some really tasty vegan and vegetarian options. I chose this delicious coconut curry soup with glass noodles, rice, tofu and veggies. The prices are more than reasonable - 98 Kc (a little less than 4€) for this dish.
It is actually not as hard to find vegan food in Prague as I thought. However, those fried potato things you can buy at markets are not worth the money.
On our second day we were just walking around the city, shopping at second hand shops when we stumbled upon this kaleidoscope place with a little theater and a mirror maze. There were only about 16 seats there and a little screen, but it looked like an arena with this massive ball in the middle showing amazing pictures and patterns.
On our last night we went to this pub to meet up with other couchsurfers. And we met so many interesting and nice people from all over the world. And yes - this beer is green. I still don't know what this woman behind the bar put in there, but she was just smiling saying "It's normal." So, we just went with it. All of a sudden, there was a cougar in the pub which all people thought was great, but they aren't supposed to be pets, so I wasn't so stoked about it. After the last call we then went to this club called "James Dean" and let me tell you: Czech people know how to party! It was a fun night and after a couple hours of sleep we were on our way home again.
Thank you Prague, Tommy and Mira-Belle for those amazing three days!
