I had always planned to revisit my beloved Prague in Summer, but when Chris’ sister asked us to join them there for new years, we were quick to jump at the opportunity.
It was slightly surreal to be back in a city we had been too, and especially on new years eve, which we had celebrated in this very city five years before! We celebrated in the only way I knew how to in Prague – cheap beer, delicious carbs and fireworks from the convenience stores. The below blurry firework photo is one of the only I have of the night – it was too fun!
It was safe to say we were a bit rusty the next morning, but we managed to drag ourselves out of bed eventually to explore the old town.
The above door is one the entrances to my old uni, Charles University!
I played tour guide, and took us through the old town, over Charles Bridge, past the Lennon Wall and up to the castle.
Trdelnik was mandatory.
We had two full days in Prague, so plenty of time to slowly explore the city.
The following day we went up Vysehrad and found my old house!
It was nice to revisit a city that was so special to me, share it with others and not have to rush around.
From Prague it was finally back home to grey old London. It was a wonderful three weeks on the continent, made extra special by sharing it with family and friends!
