WiFi has been spotty at best so posting updates has been a little on the slow side. But that makes this more suspenseful right?!
Sigh. Never mind.
So after Budapest, we took a train up to Prague where first, the train was crazy crowded. Like, hope you don’t have to go to the bathroom unless you’re willing to literally climb over people crowded. And second, the conductor in Vienna forgot to do a full validation on our tickets so we had a bit of confusion\stress on that end.
We made it to Prague anyways and in one piece!
Steve and I stayed at Charles Bridge Hostel which, ironically, is right next to the tourist trap epicenter known as Charles Bridge (it was awesome cause we were right in the middle of everything)
This was the view out of our window
The hostel also had a cat named wifi. I grew pretty attached to wifi whole we were staying there.
Steve and I walked down to grab some beer and traditional Czech food at Olympia and were astounded at how much food and beer we got for less than $30!
walked forged our way across the Charles Bridge to make get back to the hostel and crash, but we were interrupted by spontaneous fireworks that we had a front row seat to!
Our second day was filled with museums, castles, ice bars, and questionable museums on sex machines (and you thought this was a family trip lol)
Godmother death was a pretty popular person in older Slovak beliefs
We also saw the clock…
And we toured some of the gardens before heading up to the monastery for some life-changing beer. BTW, those monks do it right!
Later that night, Steve and I went with Andrew to the observatory to look at their telescope (we saw Saturn!!) And guess who got hurt…..
Side note:there’s a running joke in my family that its not a true vacation until someone visits the emergency room
Steve indoctrinated himself to the family by spraining his ankle -facepalm-
Luckily, it was only Steve so the test of the family was finally able to relax and enjoy the vacation (jk although we were a little relieved). Luckily, it was only a minor sprain and we had some awesome people around to help out!
The next day we took a train back to Vienna where lots of wine was drunk….
See ya later!
