On Saturday my boyfriend and I went on a little weekend trip to Prague. Prague is only 6hrs away from Hamburg but after being delayed in the Czech countryside we didn't get into the city till 5pm. It was my 1st time in Prague but it was my boyfriends 4th time so he made an itinerary of what we should see but even so we still found lots of new things that he hadn't seen before. It was a very strange city of very pretty touristy bits but the rest is full of homeless, druggies and dangerous areas but it has such an energy that it is very hard not to love it. We ended up going out on Sunday night with people we met at the hostel bar that turned into a marathon night of no sleep so it made Monday a very hard day of sightseeing so by the time I got on the train at 3pm I had had not slept in over 30hrs so I instantly stretched out and went to sleep.

My favorite place in Prague, an amazing park in the moat of the Prague castle. The entrance is so hidden that there are hardly any people in it and is so quiet that you forget you are even in the city. It was raining making all the leaves very green. There are also deer in the park that are protected by armed guards ( I am not kidding about it).

 Saturday - getting on the train at 8:30am for the 6hr journey, eating lunch for the 1st time in a dining car, the train delayed in the Czech countryside due to a huge thunder storm, getting to Prague an hour late, seeing the old town square and the astrological clock on the church, played scrabble and pictionary in the hostel bar 

 Sunday - walked all the way up the hill to the war memorial, went inside the war memorial museum, walked from the new town to the old town, went to the Czech senate gardens and saw all the peacocks and owls, went to Prague castle, walked through the moat gardens in the rain, played charades in the hostel bar, went to crossclub, stayed up taking in the hostel bar till the breakfast was set up at 7am     

Monday - did not go to bed, went to see the Frank Gehry house, walked a long the river bank, caught the train home at 2:30pm, went to sleep on the train, got back to Hamburg at 10pm
