Trip Report The long awaited trip report! Part 5 - Prague

Jump to last reply

So part 5! For those new part 1=London, part 2=France, part 3=Barcelona, part 4= Italy and here we are at part 5.

We are a family of 4 . .my kids are 4 and 2 and I have had amazing help from so many people on here from the planning of where to go, where to stay, to help with dramas to now helping me as to where to eat and what to see in the places we go.

Ok so ..Part 5 . . Day One...

Flight with Czech airlines = great! So easy and quick from Milan! Just love flying! the whole here is the 4 cases you deal with it from check in and then not needing to worry till you get off and have a trolley to manage it is so nice! Anyway flight was great and getting through the airport and finding the taxi was also really easy!

Now no one be mean but I seriously was under the impression that you could use euros here . .you can't! You can pay the taxi in euros (we paid 35euros) so after we checked in to our sensational 2 bedroom apartment we went off to find a ATM and got some money out.

Now this apartment . . SENSATIONAL! just love it! 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms . .it is 2 beds . .but they made up the 2nd bed into 2 for my kids but they are lying next to each. It is literally on the steps of Old Town square and I just love that! the views outside our window are great! We are paying 200euro a night and if you can handle stairs (top floor...quite a few steps . .poor hubby with the four pieces of luggage!) and no aircon . .but it's really modern and clean! So I am really happy!

So after we unpacked and put a load of washing on (yes it also has a dryer . . huge plus!) we headed onto the streets. Found the designer strip ..as I do :) and then made our way back to the main square of old town for tea.

Our dinner was OMG delicious! We assume we have over spent but the pork was to die for! the kids shared ribs and chips, I had a pork knuckle ..the meat was just falling off the bone! and hubby had a pork chop in this delicious gravy with amazing dumpling bread... including drinks and a tip we paid 1500 . . .I think that's like 80aussie dollars??? but it was soooo good and we missed out on lunch today so we justified it :)

So afternoon/night done onto tomorrow and the full on day of site seeing! Really didn't know much about this part of Europe but already I can see I am going to be in love with this place too!
