Cesky Krumlov, A day of relaxing while floating down a river!

One of the 'things to do' in Cesky Krumlov, is to rent a boat and float down the river for a few hours, stopping at "beer stops" along the way. Five of us decided to get a boat together and do just that. It was so nice out and was so relaxing. Since I'm feeling a bit sick, I took it as easy as possible, holding the guys' beers in the water as we floated, to get them cold. Overall, a very nice day in the sun, lounging in a bikini, soaking in the sun in the countryside.
Before the float, Becky and I went to a grocery store to get some food since the little hostel we're staying at has a kitchen. This is the first time in a month and a half that I've actually cooked something and it's soooo nice.
For some strange reason, I've been craving Mr. Noodle, so I bought the Czech version of that and made it as soon as I got back to the hostel. After a very necessary nap, I made some pasta and spaghetti sauce (thanks for the food, Becky) and had that, covered in swiss cheese. mmmmmmmmmmmm
Around 9pm, a bunch of us went to a bar called the 'Horor Bar', which ended up being a bar in the basement of an old building with fake skeletons, creepy red lights and a bunch of "scary stuff", including an iron gate to the bathroom. It was a, might I say, different kind of bar than I'm used to and a pretty cool place to drink. The bar fits in really well with the town, which looks like most of Europe would have looked like about 400 years ago.
Did I mention I love this town?! Our hostel (Krumlov House, a whopping 10 euros a night!) is quite small and reminds me of staying at someone's cottage. Their policy is "no shoes" so you walk around barefoot through the hostel. It's an awesome place and a great place to meet people and relax, which is exactly what I was looking for! :)
