There I was, sitting in a train car booth. It had 6 seats in the room and its always a tense moment
because you wait to see who will join you in the booth. I cross my fingers and hope for nobody, but I know that is unlikely. I am joined by 4 other females. One however, is particularily interesting. She happens to be 11 years old and travelling on here own to some town! She was VERY mature and spoke a little bit of interesting. Ironically, I looked up to HER that day.

I must have been pretty lazy when I was googling how to get to my hostel because I didn't write
anything down. I thought I could just have a visual image map in my head. It might of worked, but I had the WRONG hostel address! I arrived at the wrong hostel and was dirrected to the correct one and was getting a bit frustrated because the streets are sooo meandering and curvy here! It was dark and I had been walking for a couple hours by now so I was very happy when I checked in! In Berlin I took part in a tour provided by Sandemans which is only tipped based. This company also does tours in Prague so I made a quick friend in the kitchen named.....Rainbow! (very cool) and we headed for our tour. (Sidenote- Rain is from Scotland and 23 randomly travelling Europe for up to 7 weeks.)

Prague is very beautiful, the streets are lined with large buildings that are connected to each other so there are no spaces between. It is almost as if its just one large buildings except for the colour differences. Definitely a tourist city, people are everywhere! Lots of food venues and stores. The prices are finally getting in the range of being cheap! The currency here is called a Czech Crown, basically 1 Euro equals 25 Crowns. At times I feel rich holding a 1000 Crown bill, at times I feel confused because something will cost 455 crowns so I must convert to Euro so I can understand the value.

I went on a Pub Crawl here and meet a couple other Canadians. For the first 120 minutes we had unlimited beers, voldkas, wine, shots and ABSINTH! I have been enjoying a private floor in my hostel since after my first night the 3 girls in my room of 6 left and I have been the only one in there since. I havn't even seen anyone on the fourth floor except me! It nice sleeping without anyone waking you up, but sometimes I think I wouldn't mind someone else only before I realize that this won't last and next hostel will be packed so I should and will enjoy my Private Villa! I have made some good friends here, its werid how when your travelling you can become really good friends with someone very quickly! Must be due to the fact that you both know time is limited and everyone is in a friendly mood.

The girls in my room the first night told me about a Chapel full of Human bones, it was located outside of Prague and i was definitely interested. The one girl ended up ripping a page out of her Prague book explaining how to get there which was very nice of her! So one morning I made a new friend named Priscilla. We headed for the train station on our journey to find a town 70km away, with a chapel full of bones and we did it! The pictures will describe the thoughts and emotions. We fooled around in the town for a bit, which I enjoyed because there was a relaxing, quiet, peaceful serenity in the air.

After so advice from the Desk Man, I decided to attend a "Black Light Theatre Performance", and it was awsome. It was 20 euros and included music, comedy, dancing, rain from ceiling and suspense. I will include a short video sample to remind me of the experience. Very Cool!
