Clown and Bard Hostel

Another early rise around 7am to get the bus to Prague,when we arrived in Prague we had abit of trouble finding the hostel.Stacey even got abit shitty with me for not finding the hostel quick enough.She will probably deny this though.Stacey is the best person to travel with but the actual travelling bit(in transit) she isnt the best.She worries to much bless her.But she will probably deny this too.Maybe i shouldnt write this?

Anyway when we did get to our hotel we checked into our ''30 bed dorm'' which i expected to be chaos,but were lucky and got two beds on a raised platform above the rest of the dorm.

Which made it abit quieter.Knowing that we had no real chance of getting any real sleep in this dorm we decided to get pissed both nights we were here.And seeing as we were in Prague it seemed like the right thing to do.

On the first night,after going out for a meal in a nice restaraunt nearby we just stayed in the hostel bar and made the most of the 2 for 1 pints and spent the night chatting to 2 australian lads called Jacob and Dan.

The next day unfortunately was our only full day in Prague,which was a great shame but we definitely made the most of it.Obviously the first port of call was the zoo.And ok i get abit of stick for going to zoos all the time and missing out on proper sights the city has to offer.BUT,i like zoos so i will do as i please.Also i had to turn down the chance of going to bratislava zoo,which was a shame.

oh god the absinthe!
Anyway,il write a book one day called 'Zoos of the world''haha.Prague Zoo however was the best zoo i have ever been too in my life,it was sooooo big,and the ski lift to the upper level was brilliant.One thing that did freak us out though was the indonesian jungle exhibit.I  wasnt best pleased that they had free roaming bats in there.Me and Stacey duely ran out screaming with me shouting ''hold on to your hair,if the bats get stuck in it we will have to cut your hair off.hahahahaha.

After the zoo we headed into the old town and strolled round the streets,checked out the Torture museum which was interesting but i expected it to be scary.Then we got back to hostel and headed out for a meal.

When we got back to the hostel i got chatting to some english lads,and they said they were going to a beer factory.

Dance off between a german stag do and a czech guy,absolutely unbelievable.
That sounded cool to me.So we asked if we could tag along with them.Luckily they had a girl with them so stacey didnt have to be with a bunch of lads all night.On the way to the beer factory we hit some snags.On the metro stacey took a turn for the worse and whatever she had eaten made her ill and we had to jump off the metro quickly and i had to run around and find somewhere for her to be sick.We ended up in a casino,and i sat watching most amazing videos with the barman whilst stacey was being ill.

When she came out i asked her if she was ok and wanted to go back but she said she felt better so we went back to the metro to find the guys and the beer factory.When we were waiting for the train i saw two guys come down and wait and i said.''Look at those Czech guys,they look silly''meaning the way the were dressed.

Our friends on a mad night in Prague
But they heard us talking english came over and started talking to us.They werent Czech at all they were canadian called tim and jamie.On reflection they didnt look that stupid either.But we got chatting and it was their first night in Europe and our last.We said we were going to a beer factory.Being typical canadians they were high on life and they found this the best thing ever so we invited them to the place with us.

We finally found the place and it was brilliant,you poured your own beer.We shared a pump with Tim and Jamie.There was just one problem.There was two canadian lad and then me and stacey(who wasnt feeling great).We were going to have to split the cost of the price of the pumps at the end of the night.Stacey wasnt gonna be able to drink much and they were drinking alot,i didnt wanna have to pay half when clearly we would of probably had a quarter of it.

So i did what any normal guy would do.Drank as much as i could as quick as i could.Whilst persuading the guys to buy loads of absinthe to take their mind off the beer.haha

We were all having a laugh when something started happening on the dancefloor,a young czech lad, started having a dance off which a german stag party.Needless to say the Czech guy ruined the germans but it was one of the most surreal things i have ever seen.We left the Beer factory and headed for another place to go.But for some reason we couldnt find anywhere to go.We had people trying to get us into midget strip clubs and allsorts.haha

We spent probably two hours walking round until we found a club to go to.Which was the worst club in the world.And that was after we lost the english guys who had been fighting with each other,which i had been completely oblivious to.

Croc pit
haha.But we got to this club and found a guy asleep on a table so we woke him up and sat with him.His name was Jan and he was from Slovakia.So i tried my fingers in mouth tongue twister that martin had taught me.Only for Jan to laugh at me and ask me why i wanted to fart in my mouth?!?!?!I still couldnt get it right.But then we finally made it back to our hostel and passed out after an absolute brilliant night.

What a fitting end to three ubelievable weeks in eastern europe and easily the best time of my life.Somehow,i think i WILL be going back here.
