Where I stayed
We stopped off at Gitanes, as recommended by the Lonely Planet guide book, for some Czech food. This restaurant was known for its Czech meat balls, so I just had to have them so that I can compare them to the ones in Sweden
We then walked over Charles bridge, into the main square to have a sausage, to a beer garden and then to the main street. After a wonderful meal of KFC, we headed back to the square and the bridge to see Prague at night. Poor Kevin was so very tired, he just had to head back after dinner to get some sleep. We had to wake up at 4:30am to catch our flight to Croatia the next day.
So we got to see Prague at night and took many pictures. I pretty much did see everything on my previous four hour power walk/tour! I did not realize it but I was pretty much at the foot of the castle the last time but headed up towards the monastery instead. Oh well, I got to see wander around the castle and the whole town again!
Well it was now 11pm and it was time for us to head back and get ready for our trip tomorrow. When we got into the lobby, Jon was there with Kevin?!? Wasn’t he supposed to be in bed? Jon then said Sky Europe was out of business. I did not really register what he was saying and then I saw Ron and Marisol in the lobby
Well I remember Ron telling me that Sky Europe was having financial difficulties but he decided to book with them anyways. They were very cheap and who would know when they will go under. I guess now is the time! Ha ha ha!!! I mean, those butt heads, could they have not waited two more days? From what I heard, they are still operating but have stopped paying the airport fees, so the airport cancelled all their flights. Ron and Marisol actually went to the airport and could not find anyone operating the desk!
Yikes!!! We are all booked on Sky Europe from Prague to Split, Croatia! So out came the lap tops and we began to find what our options were. Ron took a picture of us and put it on his Twitter page, with the caption "Stuck in Prague!". We were having difficulties finding any flights out as most of them were departing on Thursday or Saturday. Why don’t they fly out on Monday and why are the flights so very expensive???
About 10 to 20 minutes went by and some random guy came up to our group and asked if this was our picture. He had Ron’s twitter picture on his iPhone, that was just posted
We finalized our plan and decided to meet up at 5:30am in the lobby to take the metro to the train station. We did find a route to Split, Croatia, hopefully there was room for us. So it was back to the room for me to get some rest and for our heroine to start her usual ritual of packing up all her stuff.
