Hi beautiful,

I feel ten hundred times more alive on this train than the last. I am hangover free, I have the best sweets in the world for munching and have had a really good time in Prague. I love prague can we go sometime? It's so beautiful here. I think it didn't get bombed to shite in the war so a lot of the old buildings are still in tact. It's cool how they have a really long history too, not that I'm any more educated in that having been there.

We started as a four and had Immi and Hannah join us on our third day. We were really enjoying prague and krakow seemed like a massive effort so we sacked that off and extended our stay for another night. I think we have covered the main touristy sights. The Lennon wall which was painted as a memorial when he died. We wondered round the Jewish area had loads of designer shops on the outskirts then as you got further in there was lots of Hebrew and restaurants with Jewish names. We had a peak at the cemetery too which was all very hickeldy pickeldy. Apparently the graves are just stacked on top of each other. We have walked over the famous Charles bridge . It's really beautiful there, you get a good view of the town and we stroked some persons breast which supposedly guarantees you will come back. The castle was really pretty too. It's not so much a castle actually, more like a palace. That's where the big stone statue is that I told you about. There are some really nice gardens around the castle and the view from the top is amazing. Definitely worth climbing up all the stairs for. We did the fenicular yesterday. The first time we have paid for an attraction would you believe! The top of there is also really beautiful. Lots of gardens with roses in. I wish we had spent more time up there because there's a lot of grounds, even a maze I think. I'm not sure if you'd count the pedalos as a tourist attraction, they're certainly not in the lonely planet guide, but they were really fun. We did two, one with the four of us then with the six. I think the novelty had worn off by the time we did the six but we did manage to meet some Italian guys who we got to take a photo for us.

The food and drink here is super cheap, more reasons why you should come. You can have a three course meal for five pounds at lunch and the beer is only £1. Eating has been a bit of a struggle for me, after my Chinese I'm really cautious of any sauces or meats which means no goulash, dumplings or beer for me. We have had some really good food here though. There's a chocolate factory just off the old town square that does the best hot chocolate. Even in the mild heat it was incredible. It was like hot chocolate and melted chocolate had had a baby. I can't describe how delicious it was but just know that it was top notch. The shop was like my heaven I could have stayed there all day. The pasta place we went to was so yummy too. I have the uttermost respect for anyone selling gf options anyway but the carbonara was really nom. Oh and last night we went for dinner and I had the goats cheese salad with a side of mash potato with Italian bacon. I know its weird to order mash with salad but I didn't think the salad would fill me up and I hadn't eaten anything properly Czech in a while. We also went to a Czech restaurant on our second night where I had duck leg confit. You know how I feel about duck ��
, it was on the bone but I managed to get through it. We have also been to a couple of nice bars, the one on the river yesterday and the roof top terrace bar we went in the old town square when the girls arrived. We payed £6 for a mojhito but it was so worth it. It was more like a bucket of mojhito than a glass.

The nights out have been really fun here too. You need to look up cross club because its hard to describe without you seeing it. Its underground and there's metal work everywhere . The music was really good too but for some reason I decided to partake in bong smoking which set my already swollen tonsils on fire and turned me into a camel. So me and eve went home. Luckily my tonsils are perking up but i think after 'Roxy' Eves have got bad. Then the night of doing the lights was just next level. I want to rule a club it was just so fun. Then the dice, what are we like?

So now we are on our high speed train to Budapest. I think the girls are keen to go out tonight but I'm keen to save it for the spa party tomorrow. I wonder what you're doing now. It's 12:09 your time. I imagine you're looking forward to your day off tomorrow. I can't believe you're building a bed stand. I think that's in a nutshell why I love you. You have your own way for doing everything. Even though you could probably buy a bed for £50 you're bloody we'll making one. As if you'd think I will find you boring when I'm home, you're still you. You're not defined by your job, you just have less time to do what you want to do. So don't think that anymore!

I love you lots,

Holly x

Ps. I really miss your cooking. When we had the fatal Chinese on our first night here I had chicken with bamboo and veg. It was literally like eating cloves of raw garlic. You would have loved it.

Pps. 11 months high five ✋ I LOVE YOU
