Hallo again everyone.
Well this past weekend was very exciting for me I must say. I finally took my first journey outside Germany to Prague Czech Republic. The first thing that I have to say is that Europe is pretty amazing. Everyone that I have met here have been so friendly. The reason why I am bringing this up is because I had my first hitch hiking experience. Hahaha. Well not really hitch hiking but people back home in Toronto would call it that. Anyways here in Europe they have this carpooling website that is pretty amazing and extremely cheap for people that want to travel. So pretty much it’s a website were people offer to drive you to other cities or countries. For example this past weekend was my first time trying this system out. So I went online and put my departure city, the country and city I wanted to go to which was Prague and the date. Once I did that a few contact numbers came up. I was also traveling with 2 other girls so I was looking for a ride that offered 3 seats. Which lucky enough I found it. I called the guy he was very friendly and we came to an agreement on pick-up location and price. I know sounds really weird. Trust me when I told my mom this she almost had a heart attack. But it’s a very popular system here that seems to work for a lot of people. So we arranged to leave on a friday and return on Monday. On friday morning we met the driver at the train station which is about 10mins away from residents. His name was Nick young business guy, very difficult to communicate with considering he only knew german but we were able to manage. He worked in Germany but lives in Prague, so every weekend he drives home. Believe it or not but he’s been driving all sorts of different people to and from Germany and Prague for the past 3yrs. Considering that we just found out this info we were able to arrange a drive with him to go back to Germany which made our lives so much easier. So the big reason why people here seem to be using this option so much is because for me to go to Prague from Germany by train is about 186euros round trip and about 10+ hrs of traveling. With the carpooling system it was 60euros round trip and 6hrs of driving. At the end of the day your saving time and money. In my opinion this is such an amazing program that they have its safe, convenient and some people even do it as a their job. Since I was so happy with the experience and the pro’s that came out of it I will be taking this option more when I consider traveling.
Ok, Ok…… Prague Czech Republic!!!!!!!!!!!!
One of the most beautiful places I have every seen in my life. If you love history and old architecture the way I do you will love Prague. The people there were very friendly if anyone seen that you were having a hard time with the map the way I did, they would go out of their way to help you which was really nice to see. Another great part of Prague was the Botels they had. Its pretty much a boat hotel on the lake. So what they had done was take old boat cabins and turn them into hotel rooms, which was very unique to see. Never thought I would be staying in a hotel room on the lake. Great memory that’s for sure. Well on saturday I did a walking tour around pretty much all of Prague. It was an 8hr tour and 9km of walking. Exercise of my life but well worth it. I was able to see all of the history and old story about Prague and how it became what it is today. One of the things I loved about Prague was the love in the air. On every single bridge that had bars couples would go there and out a lock with there names and anniversary engraved into the lock, lock it in to the bars and throw the key into the river. Meaning that there love would last a life time. Awwwwwww it was so nice……………. You can see it in one of my pics below.
