So on our way to the castle we run across this skiffle (country/folk) group playing on charles bridge. These guys were very entertaining and we really enjoyed the couple songs they played. I will have to update with a video that is on the camera:(... Anyway we got there in time to watch changing of the guards which was way more eventful than in London cause we could actually see this one! We didn't get a tour of the castle cause we decided we wanted to do the Segway tour instead. BEST IDEA EVER! We did walk the free portions of the castle though and it was very very pretty! The gardens were my favorite part of this old castle! They were beautiful and they also over looked the whole city of Prague!

Side note as well - when we were getting off the London eye were all walking out and I yelled BEST RIDE EVER! The people around me got a kick out of it and I got to express my appreciation :)

Back to Prague though... We had to go book out Segway tickets and we finish that and had a couple hours to kill before that started so we decided to head towards a nearby park and kill some time. Well on the way in a really busy town square there is a group of school kids who couldn't be more than 17 years old. Well as we're walking by one kid "pants" another kid.

Pants- The act of pulling another ones lower clothing down swiftly to there ankles in attempts to embarrass them in a public place. Most commonly occurs between males who have great bromance chemistry.

Well the kid turns bright red and quickly tries to pull his pants back up. It didn't help that Steve and I did the whole point and laugh along with all of his buddies! It was hilarious and goes down as one of the best pants I have ever witnessed!

We take a nap in the park while waiting for our Segway tour and when we wake up we started eating lunch. Well steve attracts a little white dog named Ginger and they get along quite well. So Steve starts secretly feeding this dog cheesy poofs. This goes on for about 3-4 visits from Ginger. The owner caught steve (he got the look from her lol ) and kept called the dog repeatedly and kinda got annoyed with us but Steve just wanted to play a little while longer with his new pal. Steve had to say goodbye to his fury friend but it was very hilarious to watch!

Anyway Segway tour! This was by far the best thing you can do in Prague! Our tour guide was awesome and she showed us a ton of sights but Steve and I were just so excited about being on a Segway we didn't pay that much attention! It took a minute to get accustomed to them but after about 10 minutes you start to get the hang of it! Well she took us to the top of this really tall park where there was a miniature Eiffel Tower and it flattened out. She then asked if we wanted to take the governors off of them to make them faster? Ummm does a bear shit in the woods? Of course we do! Well this turns out to be the start if an epic adventure for Steve and I. We then decide we wanted to race these things cause there was almost like a track at the base of the tower! 3 races and I went undefeated ... The cockiness kicks in at this point and I challenged our tour guide to a race and if I won we got an extra 30 mins to ride! Need less to say our tour guide took home the silver! We took a ride back up to the castle and it was a much better time to take this tour because it wasn't busy with people! Since it wasn't busy Steve starts doing his Segway dance and I decided I wanted to create a Segway dance too... Yeah that ended up not going so well considering I fell off and everyone laughed! I was a little embarrassed but it made for a good laugh! We finish our tour and decided to splurge on dinner and go out with some friends from our tour. We grab a beer and a popular dish (couldn't tell you the name) and enjoy our dinner :). I also wanted to see this sight called "the dancing house" (Which is just this really cool looking house) so Steve and I decided to stop by and take a look. It is really pretty cool cause I don't think it is meant to have a straight edge on it at all. It was really cool looking! We pretty much head back and crash cause we were exhausted and had to travel the next day.
