Prague Day 4

It was time to say goodbye to Prague – sadly as an early morning!

We had breakfast and whipped around the apartment packing up our things and tidying round. Before we knew it, it was time to hop in the Uber and get to the airport.

Our social skills were a bit on the lacking side due to tiredness but we watched TV to pass the flights…..only a slight delay to manage from Frankfurt to London (always London that is delayed!)

At home I was reunited with my kitty cats before finishing off the anniversary weekend with a meal at our favourite pub and a visit to the flicks to watch Incredibles 2 (BTW freaking awesome!). What a happy first anniversary 😍

Prague Day 3

Our last day in Prague! I started breakfast well with no major mess so the day was already off on a win! We headed out for our next wander – up to the metronome. The metronome stood where a statue of Stalin had been before it was torn down. It symbolises the passing of time, the making of history.

The hike up in the sun wasn’t as bad as I was expecting. There was a hell of a lot of stairs but after yesterday’s warm up to the Eiffel tower, this was a piece of cake!

Where we had soaked up the sun enough, we wandered down, hopped on the bus and went round Prague a bit more. Before deciding to ‘Merica it up and go to Hooters.

I was then overdue my afternoon siesta (I could totally get used to that lifestyle), we went back to the apartment to chill out for a few hours. We decided we would head out later and have an explore round.

On our next exploration, we stumbled upon the senses museum – such fun!

After having a giggle and playing with some mind messes, including laying on a bed of nails….we kept walking. After an hour or so, it was time to eat.

As we had made it so far into the evening, we took our wanders to the Charles Bridge to check it out with all the lights. It was quite pretty although definitely tourist central so before long we headed to get an ice cream and call it a day.

Prague Day 2

Our first full day in Prague and I started it in full clumsy swing by exploding cereal everywhere and flooding the bathroom…. Always a good way to start the day!

Once I had dried the bathroom off and got my act together Matt and I headed out to hit up the big bus tour and check (Czech) put some Prague history – wahey for bad jokes!

We hopped off at the John Lennon wall to check out some of the art work and to walk the streets a little.

We found a memorial for those afflicted by communism. It was quite moving. It was a representation of losing everything about yourself until nothing was left under communist rule.

After looking on a map, we thought we would take the “10 minute” walk to the Eiffel tower of Prague – my foot was it 10 minutes!!!!! My calves have had a workout of a lifetime tackling that mini hike and all the stairs. There were times I just wanted to roll back down the hill, but with lots of encouragement and continuous ignoring of my pouts, Matt got me to the top!

Of course we found time to go in the mirror maze from the 1800’s before walking back down for some lunch and a well deserved ice cream.

One nap later at the apartment (yes I am like a cat!), I was ready to head out again. This time we went for a boat trip and some local food. I would say the boat trip won out over the food on this occasion, but I plan to retest that tomorrow!

We traded in our sea legs after the trip, found a kinder egg because everyone needs a kinder egg and went back to the apartment ready to put our feet up in preparation for tomorrow.

Hamburg Day 3

My final day with my wife…. It felt sad but we definitely wanted to make the most of it! We started with our breakfast routine and I packed up my stuff so I was ready to have the day out. I got my trainers on and we hit the road. We walked and walked and walked, talking and taking in the view and fun times together.

We stopped for a top up waffle and then rolled the rest of the way round the lake to Christine’s work place. It was great to see her office and where she spends her days. I will be able to picture it so clearly now!

Then as per instruction back home, we rolled (good ol’ waffle!) to the stadium to get a shirt and of course continue the giggles. We stopped at an old fashioned photo booth first and I’m sure everyone in Hamburg could here is laugh as we posed away like the paparazzi were there for us.

We found the requested shirt and went for a walk drifting around the city and headed back to the apartment for the dreaded return home….

Finally it was the sad time to head to the station and hug out our goodbyes. I had the best few days with my wifey and I know we are already planning our next trips to see each other.
