3rd august = pretty cruisy. Said another farewell, I'm sure there will be more, to Heidi, Detlef, and family. They were another nice bunch and very good to us. Dropped our stuff off at hostel in Berlin for our last night, we stayed there because our bus picks us up from there and we wont miss it. We cruised around the rest of the day. Went on a boat road up the river and it was nice and cruisy. Walked around the park and general places then back for the nap, then our last night begun! We went out for a wicked feed, went and found a bar after a long time of searching for the cheapest one and head to a really fantastic establishment. We went there as i mentioned a few days ago, but it only comes alive at night. Its called the Klaerchens Ball house. This thing looks as though it survived both world wars plus it was in the east side of Berlin during the divide, so it has a very rich history. Masses of people like i have never seen at a place like this before, there were at least 100 bikes outside. A huge amount of people go there but only locals who know where it is. That night was themed Swing. So they played post war blues, R and B, and other styles i cant remember. The dancers were way too good but me and Denise danced for the hell of it and we looked no where near as good but it was a great fun. We got back to our hostel as some stage to ha ve a rough night. Hot, loud, and some guy came home and said Denise's bed was his so she jumped in mine but we got a free breakfast out of it in the morning so i got over it ha ha.

4th August = Bus ride to Prague, hardly even noticed it time wise but it was fairly nice. Our hostel is so damn good. Great rooms, great people and the staff and very helpful. We went out seeking a traditional dinner and found just that. We had Venison Goulash with potato dumplings and also beef with whipped cream, cranberries and more bacon dumplings. Dumplings come with everything. God this country is great. Everything is incredibly cheap. That cost like 10 NZD each or something and was pretty amazing and flash too. Accommodation here is so far the best and it was the cheapest on the whole trip. Great sleep that night with full bellies.

5th August= Got up at 6am because of our great sleeps, and to beat the masses to the top tourist spots. walked along Charles Bridge with basically no one, no stalls, which there were huge amounts of at lunch time. Seriously large amount of people and sellers there. We took out so much. Once we did that it was still only 8am. So we saw the astronomical clock which was meh, but there were already heaps of people waiting there at nine. Found the worlds cheapest bakery with great food. Ill eat well here. We walked all through castle which was pretty damn big, there somehow ended up up the mountain, then we just kept walking. Got to the top and beheld the city from the highest point. Found this cool like forgotten castle with frogs everywhere that i had a small climb in. Just kept Walking, walked all the way back. This city is very beautiful. Hitler made sure not to have any bombings here, he wanted it to be the center of his new world. He didn't destroy any of the Jewish things here either because he wanted them to be there to show about the exterminated race of people if he had his way.

Czech is a language i don't get my head around easy. The people seem nice enough but have a very tough looking exterior. Heaps of random shops everywhere that basically just sells loads of miscellaneous crap. Cant drink tap water here either.

Now being on the Busabout and hostels i found people i always joke about because what they do seems to funny to me anyway. They actually manage to go all over Europe and not really see or remember any of it. Sleep till midday at least, drink, party, and repeat. They are all nice people but i just couldn't do for the whooooole trip. A few nights i plan to go out of course but they just shock me i guess. Just an expensive way so they can have a Friday night EVERY night. What ever makes them happy though.
