We arrived in Prague safe and sound at around 21:00. There was a moments panic when we thought that our luggage had might have got lost but it was merely taking it's time getting off the plane - coming out last! Once we had all our belongings we headed out the airport doors to find a taxi. we didn't need to though because it found us! A tall man speaking English and (I assume) Czech helped us to a Taxi (free of charge) and once we had shown the driver our hotel details he seemed to know where it was and we were on our way.

The driver of our taxi spoke excellent English. I must admit, with no offence intended to any taxi drivers, I was somewhat amazed at just how good his English was. It turns out that being a taxi driver was his second job! His first job was as a Voice Over Actor (you know the ones - its a foreign film and it's dubbed with someone else's voice over the top!) He had obviously taken a liking to us so he asked if it was our first time in Prague and whether we'd like to go a slightly longer way so he could point out where we should head the following day. For no extra charge, how could we refuse?

He drove us around the city showing us different sites that we looked forward to seeing again in daylight before finally dropping us off at our hotel. 15CZK seemed reasonable and so we added a bit extra as a tip for his brilliant service.

We rang the bell for the reception and went in once the door was open. The young girl behind the counter didn't speak brilliant English but was very friendly and certainly spoke more English than we did Czech! We checked in and went back outside to go back in another door one door down. Up in the lift to the top floor and finally into our room and bed. We were very tired and we had an early start the next day...
