First up the train ride here to Cesky Krumlov was unforgetable! The train went from Prague, to Cesky Budejovice, then to Cesky Krumlov. The first train we hopped onto to head to Cesky Budejovice went through all these mountains with forest surrounding everywhere, through massive crevices in the hills, it was really an amazing site. I had my head out the window of the train, Manu Chao in my earphones with the wind in my face just watching the vegitation soar by so close to my face thinking "this is the life!". Absolute loving life right now! The trees were so close to the train at times that i had to whip my head in or i would of had it taken off.
Once in Cesky Krumlov us both and a few New Zealand'ers found our way to Hostel 66 down from the train station
That night i ventured out by myself and met about 5 or 6 Aussies, the 2 New Zealanders I met previously and a couple of Portugal guys. Well as expected we socialised over quite a few beers - and as you have to when they're only like $1.50 australian for a pint! We chatted and chuckled on the outside tables of the hostel for quite a few hours under the moonlight in the warmth of the night before heading to "Travelers" which is a hostel, but had a good pub that everyone seemed to goto. So about 9 of us went down and i had my first Absinthe for the first time. Twas quite nice i thought as this guy bought it for me with lime in it. But ofcourse Absinthe did its job and got us all ticking and laughing. After a while a few of us wondered the cobble stonned streets back to our hostel and hit the pillow.
