Vikki: Ahoy is the local greeting here in Prague, which is a bit of a crack up to me. It's not like we are near the sea although there is the big river Vltava running through the centre of the city. It's a beautiful city, with many old buildings, churches, cobbled streets and statues every which way you turn. Always something interesting or unique to see. We've spent the last 2 days hitting the main tourist spots in the city including Prague Palace (where we saw churches, palaces and miniature houses) and wandering the streets around the old city. There are still lots of tourists and many groups doing walking tours so we dodged around these, got lost numerous times as I struggled to get the map under control and perused the many souvenir and tourists shops which line the streets. Making use of the metro, trams and trains has seen the car parked up so a break from driving thankfully as tackling streets with trams is just asking too much.
We're about 15 minutes out of the centre of town in another camping ground. Lovely with a small pool, a great little mobile home and people from all over Europe. We've made use of the big supermarket down the road to sample lots of local breads and some delicious sauces for mince and chicken. Some of the best food yet (not to mention great beer too)!
Raj: First of all, I've really enjoyed the continuation of trying a new beer every night. There are so many choices - I just get confused so pick on looks and a mixture of prices. The servings are 0.5L, just perfect. We also enjoyed a 1L bottle of boutique beer on our first night here as a gift from the owner (Gerhard) of our last accommodation in Austria (oh and a bottle of wine and some treats for the kids). Very generous and it's fantastic to meet people that take a genuine interest in you and where you come from.
Prague again offers something a little different to other European cities. There is much in common but also some subtle differences. Lots of shops selling Bohemian Glass if you had a few extra thousand dollars for a nice piece. Apart from the cars (quite old) it's more modern than I expected. The transport system is very efficient (buses, trains and trams are integrated so one ticket can be used on all modes). I was surprised with the number of tourists here being inland, but the crowds were manageable. I would love to come back to the city at night (to party!) but it's a family holiday and even before the end of the day I'm hobbling like an old man with all the walking! Being a Fashion Capital, disappointingly I'll miss the Victoria's Secret show next week (although I think Vikki was eyeing up Swan Lake, in which case we'd be buying separate tickets)!
Harley: Two days ago we arrived in Prague in the Czech Republic. We are staying in a motor home with a pool and trampoline. So far my favourite thing that I have done is wandering the old city of Prague. We looked in lots of souvenir shops and finally I bought a massive pencil with pictures of Prague on it. Then we visited the main square called Staromestske Square. While we were there we tried Trdelnik which is a baked bread rolled in sugar and nuts, it was tasty :) Also we tried spiral baked potato, it was much like chips on a stick but more chewy. There was also a clock called the astronomical clock which rings every hour. Then we took a tram to Petrin Hill. We walked up a 500 metre path to the top, then relaxed for a while before taking the cable car down.
