Prague: Czech yaself before you wreck yaself

So I’ve been drinking espresso a lot to try to keep my pipes moving (if you catch my drift) which is amazing and feels sooo European to finish dinner with a tee tiny cup of espresso with perfect creme on top….however, it also leaves me wide awake at 2 in the morning. I’m sitting in one of my 3 double windows in Prague which overlooks the most quant street I’ve ever seen listening to French music drift through the window. I want to move here. I think I could seriously just stay here in Prague forever. It might be the best city on the planet.

Even though our journey started with a little adventure, our short time here thus far has been perfect. We got to the hotel we’d booked and they had not only lost our reservation but it was also completely booked! Even though we were willing to search around for another hotel, the lady helping us would here nothing of the sort and spent the next hour calling every hotel they were affiliated with to find us another room (turning 6 customers away in the process telling them they needed to come back later because she was in the middle of fixing a problem). She ended up finding us a far better hotel than our original and gave us the same price. Our room takes up an entire floor of the hotel….ok…which isn’t as huge as that night seem because the buildings here are incredibly narrow (because when they were built, the owners paid taxes on how wide not how tall the buildings were). So wala….we were given then greatest surprise we could hope for.

We basically spent the rest of the day walking around Prague falling in love with the city and more in love with each other. We came across this delightful unassuming park that had pear trees, apple trees, and peacocks!! What?! Enchanting. Then we got dinner gelato and fell more in love (again with the city and each other). Perfect say. Cannot wait for tomorrow.
