Saturday 5th May
Woke up (on my bdayJ ) and skyped home for a while which was nice. Then headed to breakfast and left on a tram to the castle with a bunch of others. After arriving at the castle (thankfully figuring out which stop it was) we trecked along the stairs up to the castle district after getting yummy watermelon slices and a refreshing lemon slushi.
The walk was worth it as there were great views at top, as well as a nice gothic church which we then climbed the tower of (300 something steps) with an even better view at the top.
We walked back down and on the way did some jumping shots that turned dangerous as Lauren accidently smacked me in the face and bashed my nose before then elbowing me in the eye! All accidently of course and nothing was broken so all was forgiven.
We then walked to the Charles bridge getting soft cornettos on the way. We went over the bridge that was full of stalls selling jewellery and paintings and caricatures.
Once on the other side we wandered past the Jewish quarter but it was unfortunately closed as it was a Saturday (their Sabbath) and so headed straight to the main square. Here we eventually found a little restaurant around the back of the square in which to have lunch at. Julia and I shared some pork ribs which were yummy but unfortunetly didn't get to have any of the Czech dumplings we wanted to order because the waiter kept just telling us no…it was very strange but quite funny.
After lunch the group split up a bit and a bunch of us girls went for a giggle at the sex machine museum…
Then it was just Julia, Lauren and myself left and we went to the tower where we were able to take an elevator to the top for some more lovely views over the square. At the bottom of the tower we waited around to watch the clock hit the hour (it played some music and had a little thing going around in it).
We then began to make our way slowly back to the hostel, shopping at the markets and at some stores along the way. We also passed a massive line for book signing of the eragon author (the line was ridiculously long) and then we got the metro back to hostel (with fee who we bumped into at the station).
