MORE SNOW, LEGO & GIANT FACELESS BABIES // Prague, Czech Republic

Life has continued to be busy lately, as Prague is now full of friends and family alike! I still can’t believe that Christmas has come and gone, with New Years now looming on the horizon.

I have been keeping busy playing tour guide for Mum and the family. It seems I have unfortunately got the kids hooked trdelník, a pastry rolled in sugar and grilled over hot coals.

We stumbled across these giant babies by Czech artist David Černy. We had previously seen them from a distance crawling up the TV Tower, and I didn’t realise how big they were up close! They are meant to mean something about the rebirth of the Czechs after the demise of Communism, and the lack of faces is about their confused identity. I think.SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The cold weather has seen as try to find indoor activities to break up our outdoor expeditions. We checked out the Lego Museum, and it was fantastic! I think us big kids enjoyed it even more than the little kids. As well as just having basically every Lego set ever, the Museum also featured original sets and some information about the creation of the company. Plus, everyone loves Lego Star Wars.SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The weather had been so cold that puddles (and fountains, such as the one above!) were freezing, so we were expectantly waiting for snow. Our wishes were fulfilled yesterday, when it snowed all morning. SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Mum and the family missioned over the my side of town and we played in the falling snow at Vyšehrad before bunking into my little room for some homemade soup. It was such a wonderful experience!SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The kids were so excited, as were all of us! After lunch we had another small play in the snow and admired some of the city views from Vyšehrad.SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

That afternoon my friend, Aidan, arrived into Prague. We kept the afternoon pretty chilled out and caught up on all that had transpired since we had all seen each other back in Melbourne. Today we hiked up Petřin Hill and climbed Prague’s version of the Eiffel Tower. I had never been up and it offered come amazing views of the city.SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The afternoon was spent wandering around the castle and showing Aidan some main sights in the city. SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

We also dropped by the John Lennon Wall, which I hadn’t seen since it was painted completely white by some guerrilla art gang a month or so ago. The wall is pretty much covered again, but it looks a bit different to before. It is a forever changing work of art anyway.

Hope you all have a fantastic New Year!
