Budapest to Prague.
We took a bus from Budapest to Prague that was around 7 hours long. It actually wasn’t bad at all. They had movies playing…in English. I watched Harry Potter, Jane Eyre and that one with the woman from My Big Fat Greek Wedding leading a tour bus around Greece. I also read my Sherlock Holmes book that Anthony bought me before he left, and there was wifi! We drove through Slovenia and the bus stopped there…so in a way I have been to another country! Which is cool.
We arrived to our Air BnB where Anna’s two friends Lizzie and Jo were waiting. We settled into our really beautiful apartment quite nicely after a long bus ride. Anna, Ian and I went out to see the city and met up with Elizabeth and her parents at their hotel for a quick hello. It was nice to see them all – they had been in Prague for the past few days and were leaving in the morning. They gave us tips on sights to see, though of course Ian knew it all since he lived in Prague for a semester. I immediately loved the city. It feels like walking down a movie set. Each building is beautiful, everyone seems happy, places are bright and clean and friendly. Love at first sight! We walked around the old town square, saw the astronomical clock and I bought a Trdelnik – which they sell in booths on the street. It is dough that is wrapped around a stick and spins over the top of hot coals. When its done they roll it in sugar, vanilla, toffee and almonds and it is delicious. Like the predecessor to the churro! I happily ate that all the way home.
Oh also, Prague was freezing the entire time. It snowed the first night we were there which left it looking like a winter wonderland for awhile!
