Around 29000 steps each day, on three consecutive days, is what we achieved on holiday at Prague last week .
Best thing about city breaks is to see the landmarks . Most of the time we would have seen photos in books magazines or movies and then suddenly you are there . The wow moment of coming face to face with buildings, clocks and bridges is amazing. We prefer walking the city unless the weather is bad and then hop on hop off bus is so helpful. Well, in Prague last week we got dry and sunny days , a bit cold on the last two nights so it was perfect for walking. On our last day we realised how nearby everything was and how we were going round in bigger circles. Nevertheless it was great fun.
It was mighty tiring , my daughter had a list of places and so there was no way of missing out on any of them . She had done her homework well . The food that we had to eat was also decided. The Tredlnk, a local delicacy was so lovely -a sweet bakery with some topping . Must say we ate at a superb Vegan restaurant in Prague and there are so many of them. Definitely made life easy for my husband as he is a vegetarian.
Theatre experience was so good . We all wanted to watch an opera and so glad we could find some reasonable tickets . We were awestruck by the ambience and the show at Prague National Theatre.
Walked on the Charles Bridge by night , by daytime but the best was at dusk . Sun going down slowly and the lights coming up around the city. The trees were green and within minutes became black. The Prague Castle seen in soft sunlight and then coming to light was amazing .
Every building is beautiful. So many spires . Ornate walls and corners on every street . Boulevards are very pretty. The city is so clean with its quite narrow cobbled streets . All inclusive holidays as a family have been so good when the kids were little but as they have grown up they want to do city breaks and see new places rather than eating and swimming all day long. Makes a change for sure.
People in Prague are very friendly . They don’t speak English and so that was a hard one to overcome . Smiles and sign language with some gestures does the trick . Makes life interesting and exciting.
Prague was like a fairyland which I had imagined over the years . Castle and bridge with the river, Petrin hills, gardens,, lights on the spires, easter decorations everywhere, wonderful food smells, laughter all around- is this what you thought is fairyland. Yes exactly thats what it was. My kids shared the imagination so it can’t be too wrong and much in keeping with this google age . Simple beautiful imaginative ideas need to be kept alive . They bring in happiness to normal lives.
