Where I stayed
We realised when we arrived that the hostel was only really somewhere to sleep and nothing else. (Usually there is a common room to meet other people or just to sit and do nothing).This meant we had to do something so we caught the metro into the main center.
We were a little bit dissapointed (at Prague) at first but this might have something to do with the fact we weren´t walking down the right street. When we found what we were looking for it was awesome. By this time it was about 10pm so most of the tourist had left (apart from the drunk English guys singing with their shirts off)which we realised the next day, made it a bit easier to walk around
No wonder there are pickpockets in Prague! There are so many people. We even tried it ourselves a few times ! - Just Joking :-)
After Prague we caught a rickety old bus south to Ceske Krumlov. We stayed at Hostel Merlin, a really nice hostel to relax in. It is a really nice small town, but I guess you can see that in the photo we put up. It was in Ceske Krumlov where we realised just how tired we really were-we had thoughts of just catching a bus to Germany then and there but we cured ourselves by doing nothing for a few days.
So we decided to catch local buses to Krakow in Poland which ended up taking 17 hours!!!
