Prague – Part 1

With the kitties shiny new passports we were able to dump them in a cattery, and jump on a train to Prague! (We are loving parents, I swear!)

As an amusing side note, we managed to forget our own passports and may have had just a small international altercation and possibly a fine going over the first German border. (Yay for friendly German Police!) (Yes, you read that sentence correctly!) Good thing we were still awake for it given that it was a sleeper train! But we were never asked for our passports again the whole trip. So there you go.

The word that kept coming in to all our minds was “awesome”. The city was AWESOME. Such a magical fairytale city that truly looked like it had been pulled from the pages of my childhood storybooks.

The buildings are so …

and around each corner, another turret or spire piercing high into the sky (Church of Our Lady before Týn – 14th Century)!

Then wonder of wonders, the Astronomical Clock (1410).

Then high on a hill, overlooking it all, there’s Prague Castle (870 – kinda).

And the Charles Bridge (1357 – better photos to come) connects it all together.

some of the oldest buildings in the world. And I can’t even remember how many churches I’ve been in! We’ll count them together shall we? (Yes Mum, this time I got photos for you!)

Now I’m going to share that adventure with all of you!

    1. I had a truly wonderful time! It’s such a spectacular city! I’m looking forward to going back and seeing a lot more of it! 🙂 There’s so much to do! 😀

      There’ll be more posts this week about my trip. I hope you’ll stick around to read some more!

  1. Haha, when I was living in Brasil I went to Bolivia with a group and as brasilians they didn’t need a visa or whatever, and I trusted the organizer who was supposed to have found out what I needed to do, left with them. On our way back I got in big trouble, had to stay in bolivia an extra day, pay fine, not fun at all. Looks like you had fun regardless 🙂
