Inspired by griffin's Vegas photos, so I'm sharing a couple from Prague two weeks ago. The kinds of places you go for many of the same reasons, I'd say! Went there for a bachelor party. No particularly interesting photos I'm afraid, but damn there's too much Brexit on the front page!
Beautiful place, as far as cities go.
We had rented an Airbnb with a terrace with the type of quirky rooftop view you only get in old European cities.
Spent the better part of the afternoons just relaxing in the sun.
At the end of the weekend, I think 7-8 Disney balls were accidentally distributed across the neighbours' roofs.
The backyard was charming! I'm pretty sure there were multiple dead bodies down there. Also, didn't really notice it at the time, but the place is coming apart!
Went to a shooting range.. first time I'd ever held, much less fired, anything bigger than a hand gun. The bruised shoulder was worth it I'm sure we took 100 photos of us just holding guns. Look at this handsome and smart human specimen and his perfect zombie killing stance.
Pretty cool screen capture from a slow motion video.
Self imposed photo prohibition during the evening, of course. But there's fun to be had in Prague, no doubt ;-) Walking out of here on a steady foot was hard.
There was alcohol involved.. apparently, buying a _bottle_ of vodka at the bar is so common that it has a custom tray with slots for mixins. Very exotic, coming from Norway
I stayed behind in Czechia, because I didn't have a return ticket. Went full on tourist mode when the others had left. This is the astronomical clock at the Wenceslas square. The guide said after it was built, the designer was mutilated so he couldn't build another one for someone else.
These dudes chilling on the river... Kinda looks like some sort of amphibious car?
Crossed the famous bridge..
Battled my way through a crowd to touch.... this something, like everyone else. Nothing happened, needs further instructions.
Also, as tradition dictates, I found someone who would borrow me a Honda and spent a day in the countryside.
The scenery is not spectacular in the grandiose sense, like a mountain range or roaring coastline, but rather in a calm and steady sort of way.. hard to explain. It was bliss to just cruise along the wavy wheat fields though.
In the end I found some mountainous places too, towards the German border.
Lots of beautiful, seemingly deserted, buildings, often in totally unexpected places up in the hillsides.
Unfortunately, as the evening drew closer, so did the dark skies.
Soon there seemed to be rainstorms in every direction.
I headed back to a village, had some apple strudel while it poured down.
At this point, I also found a cheap ticket home, and considering the weather forecast, headed straight to the bike rental and airport.
