Firstly, a comment on the means of travel from Berlin to the Czech Republic. We were again on a bus, this time the student bus company which specialises in bus travel for the young (I'm pushing it now I know) in Central/Eastern Europe. For 25 Euros each we were treated to very comfortable seats, free hot drinks, two movies (Nanny McPhee 2 - a film …
... toll roads). Each town we went through had an electronic sign showing each vehicle's speed.
The driving was a little erratic and passing other cars was possible with another car approaching as long as all drivers allowed the road to turn into a 3 lane road even if it was marked for 2!
The town itself was very beautiful and we had plenty of time to walk around and see the town and the castle. The frescos on the outside ...
I was in Prague for 5 weeks. Living abroad is AMAZING. I definitely am going to do it again. Prague is awesome, though not really as amazing as I thought it would be. We live in one of the outskirts of the city, in Praha 9 or Vysocanska, and that's just like any city except I can't read the graffiti or street signs. Downtown takes about an hour to get to from the Villa with a 40 min metro ride where you have to change trains. But it's worth it. But ...
... took place but of course we couldn't understand as it was in Czech. We arrived back to our original stop that we had started at and gathered by looking at some posters that there was track maintenance.

Train ticket crisis averted we caught the metro to Wenceslas Square and walked along the boulevarde before popping in to Rocky O'Reilly's Irish Pub for a mid-boulevarde thirst quencher before catching a tram to the top of Petrin Hill.

The Red Lion served up a pleasant surprise. The arrangements on arrival were slightly curious, as we were sent about 100 yards up a steep cobbled hill to check-in at its sister hotel (I think this is because we arrived after 10pm). However, once we were able to access the room it was a beautifully decorated period room, offering comfort and a traditional feel in an historic city.
Breakfast was a decent selection of bread, fruit, cereals, yoghurt, cakes and hot and cold drinks. The hotel added to a fabulous stay in a fantastic city.
