prague by day
Arrived in Prague after an 8 hour train journey from kitzbuhel. We assumed there'd be a bar on the train we would sit at all arvo, however no such luck. We got a dodgy old soviet train where they crammed us in like sandines. Luckily we got seats, some others were not so lucky and spent the 8 hours standing, not fun i assume. The only drink we had was a bottle of a austrian schapps, that darryl, pang and andrew decided to shot as we approached prague. Three boozed boys when we arrived, girls, not so cheerful.

It was a fairly whirlwhind tour of prague. We meet up with the others Rosie, Nashy, Bec and Stefan and straight off to the bavarian beer hall for you guessed it, another bratwurst, this time distinctly lacking in sauerkrout.
Good night out finished when all fairly joyful arrived home to not be able to remember which apartment we were in. This resulted in both darryl and pang waking up our french neighbour and both coping verbal sprays big enough to blow their hair back.

Big morning of sightseeing the next day, not feeling too great. After checking out the main square, the charles bridge and walking around a bit, Sarah, Nashy, Bec and Stefan decided shots of Jagermiester in the local pub was a good. They even got free beenies for having 3 each, fantastic.

We ended up spending new years watching and letting off our own fireworks by the river. There just really isn't anything better than letting of rockets, we really have missed out in Aus. Then it was onto what the lonely planet describes as the 'biggest nightclub in central europe'. Big place, not nice czech security guards, results in darryl and pang being denied entry and spending new years in the local casino. The rest of us had no problems and danced the night away czech style.

Off to london the next day and back to work.
