December 16, 2012Prague is world renowned for its beer, beer festivals, and beer culture. But Prague is an ancient, vibrant city that has more to offer than beer. Probably one of the best ways to see this culture is to stay in hostels that are located close to the attractions in Prague.… The oldest working astronomical clock in the world can be found in Prague’s Old Town Square. Built in 1410, the clock was nearly destroyed in 1945 when German
May 11, 2012Central-slash-eastern-slash-everything-east-of-Germany Europe isn’t really known for having the most delectable cuisine on earth. It’s a whole lot of meat, dumplings, bread, gravy, lard and, yes, more dumplings. Speaking of dumplings, if you didn’t already see last week’s Foodporn Friday post, you can check it out here…. It’s about dumplings. What, you didn’t realise that this was a Foodporn Friday post? Do I have to remind you every single week? Sheesh people, what am I, some kind of human calendar?
February 10, 2012Hello ladies and gentlemen! You may remember that a few weeks ago, I posted an article about five things that you can do in Istanbul…. Remember?… No?sadface. Today, it’s the same again but for that most beautiful of European cities, Prague! Prague has a reputation for having gotten more expensive in recent years but in my opinion, as someone who comes from the UK, it’s still a bargain destination. Sure, it’s not as cheap as bordering Poland or Slovakia,
February 8, 2012Hello ladies and gentlemen! How are you all doing? After my last, more somber than usual… post, I’ve decided to be a bit more cheerful when it comes to this one. After all, when I visited Litomerice, I couldn’t help but smile. Which made me feel slightly awkward, as I visited it on the same day as Terezin. Litomerice is only a ten minute bus ride from Terezin town, yet has no aura of gloom around it. In fact,
February 6, 2012Hello ladies and gentlemen! How are you all doing? If you read my last post, you may remember that I mentioned a visit to a concentration camp. Well, I visited Terezin, a small town about one hour north of Prague, and a place that was used as a concentration camp during World War Two. The day was certainly an odd one, and definitely not an easy one. Background Before coming to the Czech Republic…, I’d never heard of
February 3, 2012Hello ladies and gentlemen! As you’re more than likely aware of by now, if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, I’m travelling central Europe at the moment. My fingers are clickety clacketing right now from the comfort of a room in Wroclaw. I’ve just come here after spending five days in Prague… – however, not all those five days were what I’d call action packed and full of sightseeing. Why? Because when we travel, we need time to
February 1, 2012Hello lovely people! Or, as they say here in Prague, ahoj! Yes, I’m in Prague which, if you’ve been paying attention, you’ll hopefully already know. Actually, come to think of it, I’ll be in Poland when this appears online, probably still walking around the streets gawking at the Gothic architecture whilst shivering and trying to work out if this place in the city centre is trying to fleece me on the price of a pint of beer. Yes, that’s…
